Which God did the King of Pop believe in? Michael Jackson's religion
King of Pop searching for God
Jehovah's Witness, Islam, Christianity, Judaism - Michael was linked to numerous religions in his lifetime.
For millions of fans, Michael Jackson was a god - but the King of Pop was himself searching for a religion throughout his life.
Whilst his father Joseph Jackson (79) trained his children with an iron fist for a music career, mom Katherine (79) took care of their religious upbringing.
She raised Michael († 50), LaToya (53) and Janet (43) as Jehovah's Witnesses after she was converted to the denomination in 1966.
But in 1987 she broke with them after they criticised Michael’s music and appearance.
After that Michael Jackson was left searching for a god.
When he married Lisa Marie Presley (41) in 1994, it was rumoured that he would follow her and join the Scientology sect, but Michael denied the rumours a year later in a TV interview.
In June 2005, the King of Pop was spotted wearing a thin red wrist band – the symbol of the Kabbalah sect of Judaism. It was speculated that he had joined the controversial religious group as they helped him deal with the child abuse accusations made against him.
When Jermaine Jackson (54) converted to Islam in February 2007, there were further rumours that Jacko would follow his big brother.
In November 2008 ‘The Sun’ wrote that Jacko had attended a ceremony in a friend’s house who converted to Islam. The friend allegedly convinced him to join.
Michael’s acquaintance supposedly belonged to the ‘Nation of Islam’ – a political, religious organisation which believes white people are ‘devils’.
The ‘Nation of Islam’ was said to have converted Jacko as early as 2003. They wanted to protect him from “evil whites” and their bodyguards accompanied him from then on.
But one of Jacko’s friends told 'BILD': “They wanted to isolate him, control him and misuse him as a trophy.
"Jackson never converted to Islam. He died in a bed with a big cross on the wall. He believed in a loving God who watches over all of us.”
