Jacko ‘falls for baton-twirling circus babe’May 24th, 2009 - 12:58 pm ICT by ANI
London, May 24 (ANI): Michael Jackson is said to be besotted with a baton-twirling circus stnner who he wants to perform at his comeback London gigs.
Jacko, who has already recruited a professional pole dancer to join his troupe at the tour, is about to sign Noriko Takahashi, 30, who is currently appearing in Las Vegas in the Cirque du Soleil production Ka.
Yesterday, sources had revealed that Jackson had fallen for the beautiful Japanese gymnast, who has won six gold medals in 15 appearances at the annual Baton Twirling World Championships, reports The Daily Star.
One of his aides declared: “He’s been infatuated with her since he first saw her in Ka and he’s chatted with her backstage numerous times.”
According to the source, the 50-year-old singer popped out to see the showgirl at least ten times during a six-week stay in Vegas.
He added: “When he moved back to LA, he even pleaded with Noriko to join him there.
“He promised to pay her air fare and offered her a fortune to dance solely for him.
“She very politely declined - she’s a really shy girl - but Michael is now hoping to make her an offer she can’t refuse to perform with him in London this summer.” (ANI)
