Michael Jackson wanted to build a clone of himself, femalefirst.co.uk reports. The singer — who died of acute Propofol intoxication aged 50 in June — underwent several three-dimensional scans in 1996 so a virtual reality robotic twin could be produced. It is thought the scans could now be used to bring the singer back in pop videos, computer games or even films.

The anonymous U.S. businessman who owned the images and has reportedly been trying to sell them for $1 million US told Britain’s Daily Star newspaper: “The data has been in our archives since he had the scans. The thing about this data is it immortalized him at the age of 37, before his nose was disfigured and when he was in the prime of his life.”
