Did you know that the late King of Pop, Michael Jackson could have been one among the 3,000 victims in the 9/11 twin tower terror attack? Ten years after Michael Jackson death, a biography written by his brother reveals the harrowing incident about how a ‘lazy morning’ and a late chat with their mother helped save the life of the King of Pop.

According to The Mirror, on the particular day of September 11, the singer is reported to have overslept that led him to miss his appointment scheduled to take place in the Towers which in turn helped save his life. 

"Thankfully, none of us had had a clue that he was due at a meeting that morning at the top of one of the Twin Towers. We only discovered this when Mother phoned his hotel to make sure he was okay.

“She, Rebbie [Jackson] and a few others had left him there around 3am ‘Mother, I’m okay, thanks to you.’

“He told her ‘you kept me up talking so late that I overslept and missed my appointment’’.  Michael's brother Jermaine Jackson wrote in his biography, You Are Not Alone: Michael: Through a Brother's Eyes.

Jackson also added that Michael overslept because he had stayed up late at night talking to his mum, Katherine Jackson.

"'Mother, I'm okay, thanks to you. You kept me up talking so late that I overslept and missed my appointment,'' Michael Jackson said to his mother as mentioned in Jermaine Jackson’s biography.

Eight years after the 9/11 terror attacks, the legend reportedly died of a cardiac arrest in 2009 at the age of 50.
