LOS ANGELES: Who would have seen a pandemic like the novel coronavirus coming? Well, apparently late King of Pop Michael Jackson did see it coming which was the reason that he used to wear masks all the time! We are not theorizing it but it is what MJ's ex-bodyguard claims.
Matt Fiddes, the ex-bodyguard, had worked with the pop sensation for over a decade and that is why he knew that Jackson was very aware that a natural disaster was on the way, the-sun.com reported.
He said, "He (MJ) knew that a natural disaster was always there. He was very aware and would always predict that we could be wiped out at any time. That a germ that could spread. So he would go through four countries in one day sometimes and he was on aeroplanes with people all the time."
He further revealed that he would jokingly ask MJ to not wear a facemask as he felt embarrassed being clicked with him while he was wearing it to which Jackson always denied. (Let us take a moment to imagine that a person felt embarrassed getting clicked with the KING OF POP just because of a mask! Ain't he should be on Cloud 9 always?)
Giving the answer to Matt's request that MJ gave to him, Matt said, "He would say, 'Matt I can't get ill, I can't let my fans down. I've got concerts coming up. I'm on this earth for a reason. I mustn't damage my voice, I've got to stay healthy, I don't know who I'm going to encounter today, I don't know what I might pass on.'"
Fiddes also said that he would know exactly what he would say now about the pandemic coronavirus. Matt said, "I know exactly what he would say to people now and that's it. I told you so. Then he'd be moaning that no one is listening to him because when he used to say stuff like that people didn't take him seriously, they used to call him 'Wacko Jacko' and all this stuff."
"But you don't get to be the biggest superstar in the world and not be intelligent. That guy was super damn intelligent. But I knew him.," he concluded.
