Rio Carnival reveller dressed as 'paedo' Michael Jackson stuns crowds as thousands turn out for spectacular party parade

The Sae Clemente samba school performer attracted some strange looks as he cavorted atop a float in the get-up, complete with replica versions of Jacko's trademark fedora and white gloves.

His bad-taste costume – accessorised with a set of canary-inspired wings strapped to his back – comes ahead of the explosive documentary, Leaving Neverland.


In the film – due to air on Channel 4 tomorrow and Thursday -Wade Robson and James Safechuck  detail an alleged catalogue of abuse at the hands of the King of Pop.

Both men will go into harrowing detail about their experiences with Jackson at his Neverland ranch.

In February the Jackson estate launched a lawsuit against broadcasting company HBO for £77million over Leaving Neverland.


They claim the documentary is in violation of a non-disparagement clause from a previous contract to televise a concert from Jackson’s Dangerous tour in 1992.

The estate also called it "an outrageous and pathetic attempt to exploit and cash in" after the singer's 2009 death.

But HBO said they would still air the documentary.

Meanwhile, thousands of feathered and bejewelled dancers took to the streets of Rio de Janeiro at the weekend as the city's carnival samba burst into action.

The dazzling extravaganza got underway on Friday with 14 samba schools rolling out their traditional shows featuring eye-popping outfits and buckets of body paint.

Known for elaborate and raunchy outfits, the Rio carnival attracts approximately a million people from different parts of the globe, where they can enjoy the pulsating sounds of the samba.
