The Jackson Jungle grows

Michael Jackson isn't resting in peace. Not with all the hoopla around his estate. Turns out Michael has a fourth child. Welcome Omer Bhatti, a 25 year old Norwegian dancer, to the Jackson fortune. Michael apparently claimed to have fathered the kid after a one night stand in '84. What happened to "The Kid is not my Son"? Now Jermaine Jackson has vowed to treat him like part of the family.
I don't know if that's something I'd necessarily want – you've probably got more chance of a normal home life joining the Boswell Wilkie circus. But the fact that he's entitled to his share of MJ's estate is probably why they want to keep him so close. Clever…

In other Jackson news, MJ's mom Katherine believes her son was just left to die. She blames his personal physician, Dr Conrad Murray, and claims he fell asleep while pumping Michael full of powerful drugs. A whole bunch of other people, including Michael's 'nutritionist' (he weighed under 50kg! Shouldn't she have been fired ages ago?), have been subpoenaed and dragged into the drama that'll no doubt carry on for years to come. Poor Michael.

Knight in blinging armour
Kelis and Nas seem to be Batman fans and have named their newborn son Knight, aight! Not as wacky as Kal-El, but are you thinking what we are? He is a Dark Knight, his girlfriend is going to be called "Knight Rider" at school and heaven help him if he hooks up with someone named Paris. The mocking possibilities are endless.

More than 99 Problems
Jay-Z and Rihanna racked up a £7,000 bar bill during a night out – on a Tuesday nogal. Wonder what Beyonce had to say about it.
