I want my name back!

John was so much obsessed with his idol, that he legally changed his name to ‘John Michael Jackson’. Till the recent time, the superfan had no regrets about his decision. The situation changed drastically with a release of a documentary Leaving Neverland, describing the late Pop King in a ‘not so pleasant’ way.

The new documentary contains stories of real men, who claimed they were molested by Jackson as kids.

After seeing Leaving Nederland, John changed his opinion about the late singer and decided to have his original name back.

John explained:

I have supported him blindly for years but it has come to a point with everything recently that I've thought, 'no more'.

And he added:

I just want to put this behind me, I can't have this name hanging above me anymore, I just want a fresh start.
