Jackson’s friend, Dr, Steven Hoefflin, claims the 1983 mega-smash hit was inspired by a beautiful female fan the King of Pop spotted outside his family home. Hoefflin, 63, said: “The fastest song he ever wrote was Billie Jean. He said the lyrics just tumbled out of his head in one continuous, rapid stream.”

Taking paper to pen, he quickly wrote the song while in the car with two of his brothers. Jackson later sketched her in nude and presented the picture as a gift to his cosmetic surgeon pal. In his autobiography Moon Walk, Jackson wrote: “Billie Jean is a composite of people my brothers have been plagued with.”
