The millionaire megastar had been preparing for his comeback tour when he was found unresponsive in his LA home and declared dead at the age of 48. Yet wacky conspiracy theorists have long claimed all may not be as it seems, Daily Star reports.
Now a shock selfie shared to Paris Jackson’s Instagram account has emerged, adding fuel to the fire. At first glance, the photo is a seemingly ordinary affair, showing blonde-haired Paris sat in her car wearing an oversized straw hat and stylish Ray Ban shades.
But do a double take, and on second look, it appears 18-year-old Paris has been photobombed by a shadowy figure in the background. Wearing his trademark fedora hat, eagle-eyed Jacko fans claim the figure is none other than the Thriller star hanging out in the back seat.
In the caption to the photo, posted on May 4 2016 and taken in Joshua Tree, California, Paris writes: “If you give a little love, you can get a little love of your own.”
A video on YouTube titled “SHOCK! Michael Jackson Seen Alive 2016 Paris Jackson instagram photo” attempts to corroborate the outrageous claim, superimposing Jacko’s face onto the shadowy figure.
The two minute-long video has clocked up more than 348,000 views to date.
