If you believe the word of Michael Jackson's father, Joe, then the answer to the question posed in the headline is "yes."

In an interview with NewsOne/TV One, Joe Jackson all but confirms that Omer Bhatti, a 25-year-old rapper from Norway, is his grandson. Rumors about Bhatti's relationship to Michael Jackson have been swirling for most of the month after he was photographed sitting with the family at Michael's memorial service on July 7.

"Yes, I knew he had another son," Joe Jackson says in the interview. Of Bhatti, he says that "he looks like a Jackson, he acts like a Jackson, he can dance like a Jackson."

Here's the clip. Others are at NewsOne, which is also promising to post the full interview on Friday.
