The day when fans could witness a group of Michael Jacksons doing the perfect moonwalk on stage may not be far.
If reports are to be believed, the legendary singer had preserved his DNA before his death in order to clone his replica.
According to scientist Michael C Luckman, the King of Pop has made 'safe deposits' of his sperm in three different medical research centres and has spent millions of dollars for the said purpose.
In his tell-all book 'The Battle for Michael Jackson's Soul', Luckman mentioned that the Thriller singer was greatly fascinated with the successful cloning of Dolly the Sheep and wanted to invest a fortune to create another Michael Jackson after his death.
Apparently Jackson wanted to continue his legacy of music and asked the European scientists to use cutting edge genetic research in order to create the perfect copy of himself.
Luckman, an alien expert, has claimed that he got the information about the singing legend's cloning from late celebrity fashion designer Andre Van Pier, the man behind Jackson's stage costumes.
Van Pier was also the designer for singer Janet Jackson and a close friend to the Pop King's siblings.
"Van Pier first learned of the futuristic cloning experiments and the secret sperm deposits from a close associate at a longevity center based in Panama. Michael's enthusiasm for cloning began with the successful cloning of Dolly the Sheep and escalated following false claims by the Raelians, a UFO cult group with headquarters in Canada, that they had cloned the first human baby,'' he told BANG Showbiz via AZ Central.
The alien expert has also claimed that dead stars can be resurrected with science and the legendary singer wanted to achieve this goal and went further to claim this is not the first attempt to clone a dead celebrity.
"Canadian dentist Dr. Michael Zuk purchased one of John Lennon's teeth at auction and has announced plans to use the DNA from the tooth to create a perfect double of the former Beatle."
The King of Pop died in June 2009 from acute Propofol intoxication and was recently declared the highest earning posthumous singer.
