Troubled superstar Michael Jackson's grasp of reality has been questioned by STELLA McCARTNEY - who recalls his bizarre behaviour during visits to her family home.

Sir Paul McCartney's fashion designer daughter believes the Dangerous singer was eccentric even in comparison to other musicians way back in the early '80s when he would visit her beatle dad at their house in East Sussex, England.

Of her father's famous guests, McCartney says, "They'd smoke weed. But don't print that. Oh, I couldn't possibly say (who).

"It just seemed normal when people like Stevie Wonder and Neil Young came round. They were normal.

"And some of them weren't normal. Michael Jackson came, but before the masks and all the surgery."
