Is MJ Posing as Burns Victim
OK, this is a trash tabloid paper, but why I post their latest story here is because it’s finally out in the mainstream media what believers think about MJ being alive.
A WEBSITE which claims Michael Jackson is still alive and masquerading as a burns victim is clocking up an astonishing one million hits per day.
Internet rumours on YouTube and Facebook also claim the King of Pop is appearing on TV talkshows as Dave Dave, 33, a man who suffered severe facial disfigurement after his father set him on fire.
The scenario might seem unbelievable, but one web forum regular said: “There’s no doubt Michael Jackson is still alive. We have the evidence, now we want to let everyone know.”
Dave was born David Rothenberg, in Brooklyn, New York. In 1983, aged just six, he survived a terrifying attack by his own father.
In a twisted attempt at revenge over a custody disagreement Charles Rothenberg poured kerosene over his little boy while he slept in a Californian hotel room and set him alight. Rothenberg later served six years in jail for the crime.
The little lad suffered more than 90 per cent burns and amazingly survived, but was left badly scarred.
His mother Marie, who later wrote a book about her son’s ordeal which was turned into a TV movie, organised a trip to Michael Jackson’s Neverland ranch as a treat, and the singing legend took the boy under his wing.
Dave, now a law student living in Utah, changed his surname to break all ties with his father.
He has said of Jackson: “He befriended me. He took me into his life, which is very rare for Michael to do.
“But he opened up his arms to me and accepted me as a very good friend of his. And throughout the years, he never let me go.”
Dave appeared on the Larry King show to talk about his memories of Jackson on the day of the star’s memorial service last year.
But the show sparked a series of rumours which have snowballed into an internet sensation and become a huge talking point on michaeljacksonhoaxforum.com.
Many bloggers have said Dave’s high-pitched voice bears a remarkable resemblance to the singing legend’s, and observers claim his eyes have changed colour from his previous blue/green to brown.
His extensive facial scarring is supposedly a perfect cover for Jackson’s surgically altered features, while the Larry King clip has been posted hundreds of times on YouTube, with web users analysing the similarities in their mannerisms.
Souza, a blogger and administrator of michaeljacksonhoaxforum.com, asserts: “Michael Jackson attended Larry King Live on the day of the funeral disguised as Dave Dave.”
The 28-year-old, from the Netherlands, runs the site, which gets around a million hits per day, with her friend Mo, a 40-year-old mum-of-two, and the pair call themselves Michael Jackson Death Hoax Investigators.
She told The Sun: “At first we started investigating Michael’s death as it was a gut feeling we both had.
“The media told us two different stories. TMZ.com reported he died six minutes before the doctor pronounced him dead, and CNN kept telling us he was in a coma. What really happened still remains a mystery.”
Lawyer Brian Oxman, who acts as Dave’s spokesman, scotched the rumours, telling The Sun: “The stories that have surfaced on the blogs concerning Michael Jackson still being alive are part of the worldwide grief that everyone whoever loved Michael Jackson now feels.
“He was so remarkable that people find it difficult to believe he is no longer with us. They long for him to remain a part of our lives.
“Dave Dave is an extraordinary young man. Michael Jackson took care of Dave for many years and asked nothing in return.
“I have spoken to Dave within the past several weeks, and he is doing well. He is going to school in Utah, and he is studying to be a lawyer.
“I can assure you that while Michael Jackson would be thrilled that Dave would become a lawyer, Michael Jackson never wanted to be a lawyer himself. He would shudder at the very thought.”
Jackson died aged 50 in June last year.
