According to reports, the King of Pop paid scientists to clone him before his death.
According to a new interview with biographer, Michael C. Luckman, Michael Jackson apparently paid scientists to clone him before his death.
It is claimed the star paid European scientists millions of dollars towards genetic research in order for him to have his genes replicated. Jackson's wish was that the clones would be able to carry on his legacy after death.
Michael C. Luckman claims the information was given to him from the late celebrity fashion designer Andre Van Pier - who designed stage costumes for Jackson and his sisters.
Luckman told BANG Showbiz: ''Van Pier first learned of the futuristic cloning experiments and the secret sperm deposits from a close associate at a longevity centre based in Panama. Michael's enthusiasm for cloning began with the successful cloning of Dolly the Sheep and escalated following false claims by the Raelians, a UFO cult group with headquarters in Canada, that they had cloned the first human baby.''
Luckman, who has just finished his book 'The Battle for Michael Jackson's Soul', believes the cloning process could even be being carried out now.
The author says: ''Michael wanted this happen, and spent time and money trying to achieve his goal. We could see many dead stars resurrected with science. Canadian dentist Dr. Michael Zuk purchased one of John Lennon's teeth at auction and has announced plans to use the DNA from the tooth to create a perfect double of the former Beatle.''
Hmm, we'll remain sceptical until it's proven true...
