Who doesn't love a good Jet Ski ride with their dad?

Perhaps that's what Omer Bhatti was thinking as he zoomed around the water with Michael Jackson.

Good Morning America obtained video of the star with his possible love child—yes, the one Joe Jackson claimed as his grandchild—during a 1997 visit to South Africa. Not only did they enjoy a few Fedora-friendly rides on that trip, but the King of Pop introduced the now 25-year-old aspiring rapper to Nelson Mandela.

Despite the bonding, former Michael associate Marc Schaffel told the morning show that the star explicitly said that Bhatti was not his offspring.

"Michael had told me very specifically to my face—and I have no reason to believe he was lying to me at the time—that that story was not true," he said.

Paternity test, anyone?
