According to Jermaine, Michael Jackson’s brother, the King of Pop was supposed to have a meeting at the World Trade Center with his business associates on the fatal morning of 9/11, 2001. Jackson performed during a tribute concert at Madison Square Garden the previous night and was exhausted therefore he overslept and missed the appointment at the doomed Twin Towers.
In his book about Michael called “You Are Not Alone: Michael Though A Brother’s Eyes” Jermaine Jackson explained his brother had been suffering from insomnia all his life. On the night before the attacks the singer stayed up until 4 am in the morning accompanied by his mother Katherine and was just too exhausted to make it to his business meeting. Jermaine knew that his brother was supposed to be at the World Trade Center and immediately called his mother after he found out about the attacks but Katherine assured him that Michael was fine and sleeping in his bed.
Sadly, the King of Pop passed away 8 years after the attacks leaving millions of fans heartbroken.
