The tattoo (seen right) is now gone (Picture: Splash/Rex)Dan Osborne has had his Michael Jackson tattoo lasered off, as he continues to insist the singer is innocent of all sexual assault allegations.
The reality star began the process of having the ink removed in 2016 so he could move into acting, but in recent weeks has defended the singer against child abuse allegations made in documentary Leaving Neverland.
Dan began the process of having it removed in 2016 (Picture: Splash)It was thought originally the MJ tattoo was going to be the only inking he would have removed, but the entire sleeve has now disappeared.
‘I’m getting my Michael Jackson sleeve tattoo removed because I want to get into acting,’ he said at the time.
Only a faint outline remains (Picture: Splash)He added: ‘The pain is so bad! I won’t get the kids names removed though, they’ll just have to be covered up with make-up.’
In January, Dan penned a letter defending the Thriller singer and suggesting that Wade Robson and James Safechuck may be looking for financial incentives to stay quiet.
Dan insisted he would never have his children’s names removed (Picture: Splash)‘I am not calling them liars because I don’t know for sure what happened but I have yet to see any proof,’ he said.
‘Even if they couldn’t speak out while he was alive, the guy has been dead nine years, so why now? I feel like they could be motivated by money but that is just my opinion.
‘I honestly believe Michael is innocent and I’m not alone. More people don’t believe the accusations than do believe them – a lot more.’
Writing for The Sun, he added: ‘I think he was a big kid at heart who loved childish things. He even had a funfair in his garden. He didn’t have a childhood and just wanted to have children for company.
‘Obviously getting kids to stay in his bed wasn’t right but he wasn’t a normal person.’
