An American woman went viral after she posted a picture of her 'boyfriend' online. And once you see the picture you'll probably understand why.

Writing on Twitter, @gossipgriII said: "Y'all my man is so cute, look at the selfie he just sent me."

And here's the picture:

Seriously, that guy is the actual spitting image of MJ. And as you can imagine Twitter responded in the only way it knows how:

Then someone stepped in and took the banter to another level:

But a key question remains, is he actually her boyfriend?

Well, it all turned a bit Spotlight in the LADbible office for 30 minutes and, after some thorough investigation we managed to track down the man himself - none other than Michael Jackson impersonator Sergio Cortés.

The native Spanish speaker told LADbible: "I do not go into controversial history. I'm not her boyfriend... I do not know this girl. I don't understand why all this. I live in Spain.

"The professionals of the press should be concerned to inform themselves well before making news."

Although, he did also tell us he currently doesn't have a girlfriend. So, perhaps there's still time for love's young dream.

LADbible has reached out to @gossipgrill for comment.
