Michael Jackson stored sperm for his clones, claims scientist
London: King of Pop Michael Jackson is said to have stored his sperm to create copies and replicas of himself, according to a scientist.
The claim has been made in "The Battle for Michael Jackson's Soul" tell-all book by scientist Michael C. Luckman, who learnt about the sperm scheme from Jackson's costume designer and friend Andre Van Pier, reports dailystar.co.uk.
"Van Pier first learned of the futuristic cloning experiments and the secret sperm deposits from a close associate at a longevity centre based in Panama. Michael's enthusiasm for cloning began with the successful cloning of Dolly the Sheep.
"It escalated following false claims by the Raelians, a UFO cult group with headquarters in Canada, that they had cloned the first human baby," reads the book.
Jackson is said to have made "safe deposits" of his sperm in three different medical facilities across the world.
The expert has also claimed that samples of MJ's sperm were recently moved from a Los Angeles fertility clinic to England by the Jackson family for safekeeping.
Jackson, who had died of acute Propofol intoxication in June 2009, reportedly splurged a whopping amount on this.
Now Luckman feels it's the right time to give work on creating mini MJs.
"Michael wanted this happen, and spent time and money trying to achieve his goal. We could see many dead stars resurrected with science.
"Canadian dentist Dr. Michael Zuk purchased one of John Lennon's teeth at auction and has announced plans to use the DNA from the tooth to create a perfect double of the former Beatle," he said.
The pop legend already has three children -- two by nurse Debbie Rowe, 55 and one son, whose mother remains a mystery.
Paris, 16, is an aspiring actress, while Prince, 17, is popular for his workout videos online.
Blanket, 12, was the result of an artificial insemination from a surrogate mother and Jackson's sperm.
