A leaked footage has shown the late Michael Jackson caught on CCTV while shopping for wedding rings with a child while in a strange disguise.
The footage from 1989 recently emerged online, and it showed the late singer browsing stalls in a jewellery shop with a little boy.
Jackson was seen wearing a wig, a stick-on moustache and false teeth and his disguise was so dodgy he got stopped by security guards.
The footage from the store in Simi Valley, California showed him paying for toys with a young lad by his side.
The King of Pop and his young companion were also said to have been looking at wedding rings in a jewellery store nearby, Mirror UK reports.
The strange occurrence hit the news at the time with reports suggesting Jackson was planning to propose to one of his backing singers – Sheryl Crow.
Chatting about the moment the Smooth Criminal hitmaker was reportedly found in the store, a security guard said:
‘It was about as cheap as you could get,’ as he described the popstar’s stuck on moustache. He added: ‘Of course he had the wig on and a cheap hat.
The disguise worked – he’d be the last person that we’d consider as Michael Jackson.’
Another security guard claimed:
‘I asked, “Why are you in disguise?” and he said: “I am Michael Jackson.” ‘I was like “yeah, yeah, yeah you’re Michael Jackson.”
The man went on to allege:
‘He said: “Really I am, see I have false teeth,” so he pulls his teeth out, and then he said, “and I have a wig on.” ‘And he pulled his hair up, and I saw his natural hair – and I knew then that that was him. That was the Michael Jackson.’
Shooting back to the studio, the news reporter added:
‘Michael said he was shopping for a wedding ring. He says he plans to marry Sheryl Crow – one of his backup singers.’
The footage comes after Channel 4 aired the Michael Jackson Leaving Neverland documentary where James Safechuck and Wade Robson accused the star of child sexual abuse, Metro UK reports.
During the two part documentary, Safechuck claimed that Michael had held a fake wedding ceremony with the youngster.
Showing off the rings he claims the singer bought him, James said:
‘So we were like this married couple. ‘I say married because we had this mock wedding ceremony. We did this in his bedroom and we filled out some vows like we would be bonded forever.’
‘It felt good. And the ring is nice. It has a row of diamonds. The wedding ring.’
