It has been revealed that pop icon
cloned his DNA before he died in the hopes of one day creating perfect replicas of himself.
Scientist Michael C. Luckman, who learnt about the popstar's sperm scheme from Jackson's costume designer and friend Andre Van Pier, said in his new book that he made 'safe deposits' of his sperm in three different medical facilities across the world, the Daily Star reported.
Luckman added that Pier first learned of the futuristic cloning experiments and the secret sperm deposits from a close associate at a longevity centre based in Panama.
Luckman wrote in his tell-all book, The Battle for Michael Jackson's Soul, that the Thriller star, whose enthusiasm for cloning began with the successful cloning of Dolly the Sheep, wanted this happen and so spent time and money trying to achieve his goal.
