A former bodyguard of late king of pop Michael Jackson has claimed that the singer ‘predicted’ a coronavirus like pandemic and is the reason why he was often pictured wearing a facemask.
Matt Fiddes, who worked for the singer for a decade, told The Sun: “He 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.”
Matt said that he’d asked Michael to stop wearing the mask jokingly because it was embarrassing, “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’.”
He said if the singer was alive today he’d say “I told you so”.
“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.”
