Hitler didn't have such fabulous cheekbones.
Of course, few people with amusement park rides on their property aren't super eccentric, but one story of Jackson's fandom is particularly off-putting. For those who weren't reading tabloids in the late '70s, Jackson briefly dated JFK's daughter Caroline Kennedy -- not because he was genuinely interested in cultivating a relationship with her, but because he was hoping to score an introduction to her mom.
It seems that Jackson became obsessed with former first lady Jackie Onassis after being given a nude paparazzi photo of her as a gift. He told his sister, "I just can't stop looking at it ... I must meet her." While maybe a 13-year-old boy who found a Playboy in the woods and decided to run away from home to live at the Playboy Mansion can sympathize with his conclusion, things got decidedly weirder.
Jackson befriended Caroline and began calling her incessantly, "hoping that maybe Jackie would answer." Caroline eventually agreed to go out with him, which didn't exactly go well. At the end of the date, Caroline shot down Michael's advances because she claimed her mother would kill her for kissing a black boy, sending him home in tears. Michael eventually did meet Jackie, though.
