Dentist Zaki Kanaan was starstruck recently when one of his musical heroes turned up for some Zoom! tooth whitening at his London practice.
Jermaine Jackson, whose memoirs about his brother Michael will be published later this year, visited K2, Zaki’s practice in Fulham Palace Road, west London.
Zak, who is part of the Ask the expert team at www.beamdental.co.uk, says: ‘At K2, we have treated quite a few celebrities in such a short space of time, yet this seemed to be the most surreal experience, having grown up admiring the Jacksons in all their guises.
‘I would have done a double take if I saw Jermaine on Fulham Palace Road let alone in K2 being treated by me!
‘I have to say both Jermaine and his partner, Halima, were without doubt the most humble, nicest people you are ever likely to meet!
‘My team (pictured above) and I look forward to seeing them again soon.’
Jermaine’s memoirs, entitled You Are Not Alone: Michael, Through a Brother’s Eyes offers ‘the truth as we know it’, Jermaine said in a statement.
He said his family did not want the forthcoming trial of Dr Conrad Murray over his brother’s death to be ‘the final word on how he is remembered’.
‘Everyone has said it all about Michael and us, they cannot say anything more – now it is our turn,’ he added.
