Report: Elton John Says Michael Jackson Was “Mentally Ill”

Published: Saturday 12th Oct 2019 by David

Elton John believes Michael Jackson was “mentally ill” and struggled to cope with “adult company” and is expressing these views in a new book.

Full story below…

Elton’s book, named ‘Me’, drops on October 15th and offers readers insight into the icon’s story and its relation to the stories of other public figures.

In the firing line? Michael.

The ‘Candle in the Wind’ musician had this to say about him…

I’d known Michael since he was 13 or 14. Elizabeth Taylor had turned up on the Starship with him in tow. He was just the most adorable kid you could imagine. But at some point in the intervening years, he started sequestering himself away from the world, and away from reality the way Elvis Presley did.“God knows what was going on in his head, and God knows what prescription drugs he was being pumped full of, but every time I saw him in his later years I came away thinking the poor guy had totally lost his marbles. I don’t mean that in the light-hearted way. He was genuinely mentally ill, a disturbing person to be around. It was incredibly sad, but he was someone you couldn’t help: he was just gone, off in a world of his own, surrounded by people who only told him what he wanted to hear.

This wouldn’t be the first time Elton has taken aim at a fellow Pop act. He has had renown spats with the likes of Madonna and Tina Turner.

  2. JaZzy Da Bi Asian TGJ STAFF SUPPORT #TROLLminators October 12, 2019

    He’s absolutely correct, Michael was mentally ill. If he had nothing else, he at least had body dysmorphia, which is a mental illness, on top of whatever other mental illnesses he had. We still love him though

    • ? Jasmine’s Grape Juice ? ? October 12, 2019

      Let MJ rest in peace u SOULLESS demon! MJ LIVED! U dont even have a life and u are still living! U are a perfect example of the living dead. Soulless empty hating demon with no life, purpose, or legacy. U TRaSh ?!

      • JaZzy Da Bi Asian TGJ STAFF SUPPORT #TROLLminators October 12, 2019

        I’m sorry that you’re so jealous of me TROLLmine, but I can’t help it that I’m popular. You’re on my site. Remember that.

      • JaZzy Da Bi Asian TGJ STAFF SUPPORT #TROLLminators October 12, 2019

        TROLLmine you have applied to work with us more times than Sam and I can count (and laugh at). I’ve denied your work application (100 times) and I’m denying your conversation. GN.

      • ? Jasmine’s Grape Juice ? ? October 12, 2019

        Demon u keep spewing LIES but everyone knows I aint never “applied” for no job! Im a BOSS. U must be gulping too much my Jasmine Monet champagne if u think i would ever want a job. Get real loser. Look at your username and then realize u are talking about yourself! U are gutter trash TgJ obsessed loser. Dont make me expose u! It is obvious who u are! U always comment on a particular TGJ editor’s posts and troll it obsessively like a crazy person. Always the same target and agenda…put crackers on a pedastool and dawg out black MEN. It is predictable, idiotic, and small-minded and u have the nerve to think i would ever tarnish my legacy by working for a site that suports such small-mindedness? Get lost trash! U are NOt on my level. U are an uncreative lessor!

      • Namo October 14, 2019

        You botch are stupid wasting time for month and month for a f****** stupid nickname. You clearly have nothing better to do on your life, people are dying, animals need help, and you think you are special and important in this life? God…

      • ? Jasmine’s Grape Juice ? ? October 14, 2019

        Fall back demon! I rebuke u. Stay away from my comments.

    • Danny Bey October 13, 2019

      And you were his doctor?? Shut up dumb b*tch

  3. Anne October 12, 2019

    This is very believable. I think a lot of people have undiagnosed mental illnesses at varying degrees. Michael’s may have been to a larger degree that prevented from coping at a reasonable level. Very sad.

    • ? Jasmine’s Grape Juice ? ? October 12, 2019

      Everybody with talent got a little crazy in them so what. Oh we aint gonna talk about Elton’s crazy cause he white? FOH. He married a woman and could not even get it up to consumate the marriage. Old madonna queen grandma looking cracker with cocaine addiction!

      • XYZ October 13, 2019

        Elton just made a movie out of it, including his marriage, and has been very open about his use of cocaine.

      • ? Jasmine’s Grape Juice ? ? October 13, 2019

        XYZ He has NOT been “very open about his use of cocaine.” He is a liar! It is not just doing the drug that is the problem but rather WHAT U DID WHILE U WERE ON THE DRUG that is the bigger truth! The way Elton puts it is like he did cocaine and went to bed right after instead of telling the truth about his nasty ass orgies and disgusting cult meetings while high on drugs.

      • Namo October 14, 2019

        Jasmine, you should clearly stop drinking wine.

      • ? Jasmine’s Grape Juice ? ? October 14, 2019

        Namo I wrote FACTS. Elton needs to tell the truth about himself! He does drugs and parties. What exactly is he doing while high? Getting banged out raw by male prostitutes and worshipping Satan.

  4. FAF October 12, 2019

    Michael Jackson would tell u himself that he had Peter Pan syndrome and missed his childhood so no surprise

    • ? Jasmine’s Grape Juice ? ? October 12, 2019

      Yup and he also the first black billionaire!

      • Tetris October 12, 2019

        I loved MJ but he wasn’t the first Black billionaire that is Aliko Dangote from Nigeria since 1981.
        He isn’t even the first African American that spot belongs to Robert Johnson the founder of the BET channel.
        And according to Forbes he became a billionaire just after his dead, in 1987 the year he earn most he was worth 350M when he died he was valued on 750M but had a lot of debts.

      • ? Jasmine’s Grape Juice ? ? October 12, 2019

        Tetris that other guy is Nigerian not black and Robert Johnson was a billionaire briefly but the same year his wife took half so that does not count either. MJ was the first black billionaire. MJ was before Oprah too.

  5. K.B. October 12, 2019

    Awww Miss Elton, must be upset because Michael didn’t participate in Miss Elton’s drug and orgy!

    • ? Jasmine’s Grape Juice ? ? October 12, 2019

      AMEN. MJ aint wit Elton’s bareback cocaine parties where men nut in each other raw dog and worship satan at the cult meetings. MJ was like FOH with those hollyweird demon parties

  6. Tyty October 12, 2019

    Another jealous POS working for the elite in Hollywood to try and tarnish THE KING OF POP!!!! How pathetic and boring. Why not say all of this when he was alive?? Yes we all know he wasn’t fully there mentally that’s a given considering his childhood plus being the biggest star the world has ever known. What I don’t like is these creatures coming out of the woodworks once his dead and not here to defend or explain himself.

    • ? Jasmine’s Grape Juice ? ? October 12, 2019


  7. Unnatural October 12, 2019

    I agree with that. That’s why it was so easy for ppl to try and paint him as a p******** when he wasnt. He never grew up and never got the help he needed.

  8. Cici October 13, 2019

    Sir, please go enjoy some d*** and leave MJ out of your mouth…

    • olusheyi banjo October 13, 2019

      LMBO. I love this comment

  9. XYZ October 13, 2019

    And? We all know something was wrong with MJ. And I have no doubt that he had indeed mental problems. All of the people here insulting Elton John should shut up, cause you know what? In comparison with us, he knew MJ personally.

    And to those saying that Elton is irrelevant. Girl, bye. You all know he is not. Just because he is not in the top 10 with the current lil whatever, doesnt make him irrelevant. He is making some bog bucks with his tour.

    • ? Jasmine’s Grape Juice ? ? October 13, 2019

      Shut it. U and Elton can go party and play with your cocaine and diseased twinks and worship Satan the same day but what u aint gonna do is use MJ’s name as a scapegoat! MJ wanted no parts of that nasty ish! Elton got mental issues! What sane person does drugs and pays twinks to dig them out?

  10. Woah Vicky October 13, 2019

    Elton John has the biggest selling song of all time and will always have this record.

  11. All true October 13, 2019

    Facts. He was mentally ill, he did prefer the company of children, especially little boys because he was a p e d o! He settled out of court with his victims for millions. You don’t do that if you’re innocent. His own sister, Letoya exposed him years ago.

    The raid on his home found doctored images of young, naked men with children’s heads on them. He was a sick f u c k.

    The only reason he hasn’t been exposed is because he’s the highest earning dead celebrity. There’s still a lot of money to be made from his name. He was a fake humanitarian just like Jimmy Savile.

    • ? Jasmine’s Grape Juice ? ? October 13, 2019

      MJ was not a p***! Elton John is the p*** admittedly chasing after little teenage boys like MJ.

    • Maxx October 15, 2019

      MJ was not a p********. He paid because he had it to pay & his agents just wanted it to go away & not tarnish his name & stop the money. If he was a p********, then why only these 2 jerks that are broke & cannot find the money & happiness they want are the only ones to all of a sudden want to come forward alllll because they are trying to get paid. Even a child can see that.

  12. truthteller October 13, 2019

    Elton John is known for making catty and negative comments about his peers (see Madonna). He is clearly painfully insecure, despite all his achievements

    • Alice October 23, 2019

      We’ll put!

  13. Keith October 13, 2019

    Let MJ rest…

  14. Led October 13, 2019

    Like it always goes when you’re irrelevant
    And want to become relevant just bring up Michael Jackson’s name.

    • Alice October 23, 2019


  15. eric October 13, 2019

    To be constantly betrayed, judged, picked apart and criticized to the extent that Michael was by other adults in life and in death, who can blame him for any time he preferred to not be around people his age? He knew not to trust people like Elton and this interview is proof.

  16. Nakiyah Laney October 13, 2019

    Man f*** Elton John b**** ass. Stay talking s*** about somebody when his ass ain’t been relevant since the 70s.

  17. olusheyi banjo October 13, 2019

    This old queen is just trying sell books.

  18. Gregg October 14, 2019

    Elton has been a messy queen for years, and here he is at it again…..knowing that sensation sells so he has something to sell, so say anything to bring attention to it.

  19. I HATE BLLAck n whyyyte bitchexx y’all not sht October 14, 2019

    Owwwwwwwwww. Jermaine gonna sue Elton he better stop

    • I HATE BLLAck n whyyyte bitchexx y’all not sht October 14, 2019

      I agree with Elton John they need to let people know that he does have a mental illness

  20. Alice October 23, 2019

    Elton….. don’t judge others until you’ve looked in the mirror. No one is perfect and if you think people don’t remember when you were bald, ugly
    and irrelevant, think again. MJ was the best and loved by many. Your ugly and envious comments about him just remind us of just how ugly you still are today, with or without the hair plugs.

  21. Wendy L Sears October 23, 2019

    Michael was abused by adults!! That is why he struggled with them. They took advantage if him!! Elton John is no saint, maybe he should stop talking!

  22. Anna Cabell October 23, 2019

    Try to leave a comment three times just to say mr. Elton Sir John I used to have high respect for you but no longer do I you have nerve to try to talk to someone that is no longer here especially when this is supposed to be about a documentary which was full of lies full of lies all of us might have a little milk to illness if we were labeled or try to be labeled especially you of all people but we still show love for you how dare you talk about him when he’s not here to defend himself all of you are full of crapp you need to as he said leave him alone and you’re messing with his family let them rest in peace
