Everytime we turn around, a new couple or new pair of BFFs are popping up and revealing to have known each other for ages.

Michael Jackson was undoubtly a huge influence across all facets of entertainment and yet somehow in all of his superstar-dom, he seemed to know any and everyone….with a few random close connections that we never would’ve suspected.

See if you can correctly guess which celeb is associated with MJ before peeping the pics being the page numbers:

#4 Is the former best friend of a prominent “socialite” and MJ’s goddaughter
