Elton John’s new memoir ‘Me’ promises to detail new insights into the lives of famous celebrities, including that of Michael Jackson's. Just days after the revelation that Sylvester Stallone and Richard Gere nearly got into a fist fight over Princess Diana, another shocking reveal in his memoir claims that that Michael Jackson was ‘a disturbing person’ and suggested the singer had ‘totally lost his marbles’ by the 2000s.
In the book, John writes that he met Jackson when he was a teenager in the 1960s. It was however in the 1990s that the ‘Candle in the wind’ singer started to realize that something wasn’t right with the late king of pop. According to Radar Online, John shares details of a bizarre lunch he had with Jackson during that time.
''The poor guy looked awful, really frail and ill,” John revealed.
He added that the Thriller singer was wearing a ton of makeup that looked like a “maniac” had put on his face, and his nose was “covered with a sticking plaster.” Things continued to get worse, as Jackson left the table “without a word,” and later, they were able to find Jackson inside John’s housekeeper’s cottage “quietly playing games” with her son, who was then 11-years-old.
“For whatever reason, he couldn’t seem to cope with adult company at all,” John wrote furthering cementing claims by MJ’s family that he never grew up.
Elton John’s memoir Me hits stores on October 15th.
