Who is Fabio Jackson?
Fabio Jackson, 30, is a social media influencer most noted for his resemblance to Michael Jackson. He not only looks like the King of Pop, but he also dresses and styles his hair in the same manner. The British online sensation has over 10 million followers on TikTok.
Fabio was born in Great Yarmouth, England, in June 1993. He has been releasing videos impersonating Michael for over a year and has received over 26 million likes on his TikTok account.
Fabio’s fame grew, and he was subjected to a slew of online trolls who claimed he had undergone plastic surgery to appear like Michael. The influencer, on the other hand, rejected the charges, stating that he has always looked like Michael Jackson since he was a child.
Is Fabio Jackson Related to Michael Jackson?
Fabio’s strong likeness to Michael has sometimes perplexed his fans, who have pondered if he is related to the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer. The social media sensation has stated that he is not related to Michael Jackson in any way and that his resemblance to him is purely coincidental.
In response to his haters, Fabio produced a video of himself as a toddler, explaining how he always looked like Michael and didn’t require plastic surgery. “As you can see from my video, nothing has changed in my appearance,” he remarked.
“I’ve just grown up, my jaw has widened, my teeth have shifted, my eyes haven’t changed, and yes, I still have Michael’s long hair,” the influencer added. Fabio also revealed that he was ridiculed at school for his appearance when he was 11 years old.
“I was bullied at school because I looked so much like Michael,” he explained in an interview. However, through time, he has come to accept his physical appearance and now attempts to have a positive influence on his followers.
“I’m shy in real life, but I enjoy performing and dancing like Michael.” When people look at me, they see this famous face, so I have to balance it out and try to be a positive effect on the world,” Fabio continued.
