Following Demi Moore , 72-year-old Elton John published his autobiographical book . The British singer’s autobiography will go on sale tomorrow, but some excerpts from the book are already available – in them Elton recalls Michael Jackson.
John admits that at the very beginning of Michael’s career, there was a trusting and friendly relationship between them. Everything has changed over the years: Jackson seemed to withdraw into himself and isolate himself from society.
I knew Michael from 13-14 years old. He was the most charming child imaginable. However, at some point, he began to isolate himself from the world and reality, as Elvis Presley did ,
– shared John in his biography.
Elton also remembered one of the episodes, which even then seemed strange to him. Once Elton invited Michael to a family party, at some point Jackson disappeared, and after a while was found playing with the son of a housekeeper. Elton claims that Michael, for some reason, “could not handle the adult company.”
God knows what was going on in his head, and God knows what drugs he was pumped into. But every time I saw him in recent years, I realized that the poor fellow completely lost his head. In the truest sense of the word. He was really mentally ill, and being with him was unpleasant,
– John shared his opinion.
Recall that not so long ago, the younger brother of Macaulay Culkin commented on Michael Jackson’s accusations of pedophilia – this topic is raised in the documentary ” Leaving Neverland “. Kieran Culkin, who, along with his brother Macaulay, had had a fairly close relationship with Jackson since his youth , admitted that the best thing he can do in this situation is to remain silent. Kirk declined to comment because “it will be published and may hurt someone’s feelings.”
