In his autobiography “Me”, the 72-year-old singer asserted the late King of Pop couldn’t cope with the adult company at all. reports citing foreign media that even though Elton John’s memoir has not been released yet it has already drawn huge attention. In the book, the singer reportedly claims Michael Jackson was genuinely mentally ill. The two artists developed a friendly relationship when Jackson was young. “I’d known Michael since he was 13 or 14. He was just the most adorable kid you could imagine".

“God knows what was going on in his head, and God knows what prescription drugs he was being pumped full of, but every time I saw him in his later years I came away thinking the poor guy had totally lost his marbles. I don’t mean that in a light-hearted way. He was genuinely mentally ill, a disturbing person to be around".

Elton John also recalled how Jackson attended one of his parties and was found playing with the housekeeper’s son. John assumed that it was hard for the late King of Pop to be around adults.

The two claimed the singer sexually abused them for several years. The documentary caused an international uproar with radio stations around the world including Canada, New Zealand, and Australia banning his music. The Jackson family has denied the allegations, calling the two men opportunists.

This was not the first time the King of Pop has been accused of child sex abuse. In 1993, a case was dropped due to lack of convincing evidence and in 2005 he was found innocent in another case.
