I have heard of all kinds of phobias, but never have I ever heard of a phobia of Michael Jackson.
A woman from England, Ruby Marriot, who is 18, says she is legitimately afraid of the King of Pop. It’s so bad that just hearing a song can give her a panic attack, which she actually suffered earlier this week at a family function when seeing a Michael Jackson impersonator.
“Even when his music plays, I have a rush of fear through me,” Ruby told TheTab in England. “Thriller is the main song that scares me, mainly because of watching the music video when I was younger and it is one of his biggest hits so it’s played around me a lot. If a family member plays his songs I have to walk out the room. The fear started getting worse when we went on a family holiday to LA and stayed in a house we rented for three weeks. There was a door with about eight padlocks on it and one of my family members jokingly said ‘what if Michael Jackson is hiding in there?’, knowing my phobia of him.Every night for three weeks, I had the same nightmare of him creeping out of the wardrobe and coming for me while I was asleep. It was awful.”
