Michael Jackson - Michael Jackson enjoyed creating controversy

Michael Jackson enjoyed creating controversy by wearing dramatic make-up and face masks in public.

The late King of Pop's former bodyguard, Matt Fiddes - who believes he could be the biological father of Michael's 11-year-old son Blanket - claims the 'Thriller' hitmaker loved the media circus that surrounded him until his death.

Speaking on 'Daybreak' on Tuesday (25.06.13), the 34-year-old martial arts expert said: ''He really loved the whole controversy, he understood that if he put that face mask on then he's going to make news the next day.

''Obviously he had two sides, he used to say to me 'Matt, I want my life to be the biggest mystery on earth'... but behind the scenes he was the nicest person I have ever known.''

Matt shared a close relationship with the 'This Is It' performer, and claims Michael had no interest in appearing normal to the public.

He explained: ''I remember once we were getting ready to go out and we were just doing something simple, we were going to Uri Geller's house for a curry and watch a movie... and Michael put some tape on his nose and I said to him 'Why did you putting tape on your nose?' and he said it 'guarantees me front pages the next day, Matt'.''

But Matt insisted that Michael never wanted his children, Prince Michael, 16, Paris, 15, and Blanket, to be famous.

He said: ''He wouldn't want his children to be famous, we spent years guarding their privacy... he didn't want them to be superstars.''

Michael passed away from Propofol intoxication exactly four years ago.
