A woman sent Twitter into meltdown after sharing a selfie of her ‘boyfriend’ who fans believe looks just like Michael Jackson.
Lourdes, from America, who goes by the social media name @gossipgriII, posted a shot of her alleged beau with the caption: “Y’all my man is so cute, look at the selfie he just sent me.”
The image, which was uploaded on Tuesday, attracted a lot of attention with more than 9,300 likes and nearly 3,000 retweets.
People immediately started comparing the man to the late Michael Jackson – and waded in with some Jacko song-based puns.
Nix wrote: “Sis you dating the king of pop”, while Derek joked: “Does he rock with you all night?”
“He shouldn’t take selfies while driving. He might get hit by a smooth criminal,” commented another social media fan.
Erin said: “Your man just told me I rock his world”, as Sam joked: “Smh, he don’t really care about us!”
“Your man just told me to beat it when I asked for more sauce,” commented Bianca.
Another said: “Sooo the way he makes you feel… is really turning you on?”
But it turns out the Man In The Mirror is not Lourdes’ partner, but Michael Jackson impersonator Sergio Cortes.
He told LADbible: “I do not go into controversial history. I’m not her boyfriend… I do not know this girl. I don’t understand why all this. I live in Spain.”
Michael Jackson passed away on June 25, 2009 at the age of 50.
He was the best-selling music artist in the world at the time of his death.
His cause of death was determined by a coroner as cardiac arrest caused by acute propofol and benzodiazepine intoxication.
