So Michael Jackson, Elizabeth Taylor & Marlon Brando go on a road trip…. I know it sounds like a bad joke, but it apparently happened right after 9/11 as they all tried to escape Manhattan.
In reality, it’s a bizarre tale that’s part of an article in Vanity Fair‘s June issue.
It’s reported that Liz and Marlon were in town to see an MJ concert at Madison Square Gardens when 9/11 happened. Jackson became concerned that they might all three be targets, so took it upon himself to get them to safety. A former employee of Jackson’s reportedly told the magazine, “They actually got as far as Ohio — all three of them, in a car they drove themselves!”
Sound far-fetched? That’s what one of Taylor’s assistants/close personal friends has already said. This former employee, refuted the account and claimed that following the 9/11 attacks, Taylor was actually at an armory tending to people frantic to touch base with their family members and meeting with first responders at Ground Zero.
So we will never know if it is true, but it’s a great story! The Godfather, the King of Pop and Cleopatra were once on a road trip together…
