It is not every night that the King of Pop comes by for dinner, KFC and Domino's ask for a golden crown in your front room.
But for shocked couple Sue and Darron Goldman – that's exactly what happened.
During a bizarre evening in December 2002, music legend Michael Jackson landed on the threshold of the couple.
And the pop superstar insisted on dressing like music royalty – wearing a plastic royal crown and a dazzling glitter dress, on photos exclusively obtained by DailyMailTV on the 10th anniversary of the eccentric singer's death on Tuesday.
Michael Jackson shocked Sue and Darron Goldman as he walked by for dinner in December 2002 in Jupiter, Florida. The pop superstar insisted on dressing like a king – in a plastic royal crown and graceful glitter dress, seen on photos only obtained by DailyMailTV.

The King of Pop was visiting Florida looking for a new property and his broker offered to take him to dinner, calling his friends the Goldmans (pictured together)
The King of Pop was visiting Florida looking for a new property and after an afternoon of looking out mansions at Palm Beach, his broker offered to take him to dinner.
Jackson agreed, but insisted on avoiding restaurants or public places, so the agent suggested something more intimate.
& # 39; Our friend called and said: & # 39; & # 39; I'm with Michael Jackson, can we come and eat? & # 39; & # 39 ;, Sue 55, who lives with her husband Darron, 58, in Jupiter, Florida.
& # 39; I was like & # 39; & # 39; What! & # 39; & # 39; He yelled out of the air and I thought he was joking, and an hour later the King of Pop was at the door.
& # 39; To be honest, it was the most surreal evening I have ever experienced, we still laugh about it today. & # 39;
Sue says she asked the girlfriend what to cook for Jackson, who was traveling with his two children Prince, then five, and Paris, four years old.
& # 39; He told me that Michael wanted KFC and Domino & # 39; s Pizza, & # 39; she said.
& # 39; I ran to the KFC drive-through and picked up a large order of regular and extra-crispy chicken, and then I grabbed some pizza & # 39; s.
& # 39; Michael had also asked for orange plum drink, apparently he was a big fan of it. & # 39;
Sue says Jackson arrived at 5 p.m. with the broker, the children of the star, and an unknown friend of the singer.

The couple, who run a costume supplier company, asked Jackson if he wanted to try some costumes after dinner. Sue remembered: & # 39; Michael said: & # 39; I want to be king. & # 39; & # 39; My husband and I laughed well. We could not believe this happened, the King of Pop wanted to dress like a king, it was just too surreal & # 39;
& # 39; I ran forward to greet them, & # 39; said Sue. & # 39; Michael was very nice and said how much he loved our house.
& # 39; Once inside, he asked for a tour, so I took him upstairs. We were then in the lounge and I went to the kitchen to hand out the food.
& # 39; Michael was very nice, he seemed like a normal guy. He said he knew the Bee Gees who lived in Florida, it was a light conversation.
& # 39; He also seemed like a real father, making sure both his children ate something. & # 39;
Sue and Darron then kept a girlfriend with their young daughter.
& # 39; There were six adults and five children, including our two children aged four and two, it was very intimate, & # 39; said Sue.
After dinner everyone went to the jetty behind the family's house to watch the sunset.
But to make it really fun, the couple, who ran a costume delivery company, had asked Jackson if he and the kids wanted to try some costumes after dinner.
& # 39; They said excitedly yes, Prince wanted to be a superhero and Paris wanted to be Spiderman that I thought was weird for a girl & # 39 ;, Sue recalls. & # 39; Then Michael said: & # 39; I want to be king & # 39 ;.
The Goldmans said they would not comment on the controversy surrounding the recent HBO documentary Leaving Neverland, which leveled horrific allegations of child abuse with the superstar singer. Pictured: Michael testifies during a civil court case in December 2002
Jackson traveled with his children Prince, then five, and Paris, four years old, and brought them to dinner. Sue said: & Prince wanted to be a superhero and Paris wanted to be Spiderman that I thought was strange for a girl. Michael helped the children put on their costumes. & # 39; On the photo: Paris, Prince and Dean & # 39; Bigi & # 39; Jackson at the memorial service for Jackson in 2009
Sue went further: & # 39; My husband and I had a good laugh. We couldn't believe this was happening, the King of Pop wanted to dress like a king, it was just too unreal.
& # 39; Darron went to the store and picked up all the outfits. & # 39;
After dinner, Jackson expressed interest in buying some costumes, so Darron took the men to his office to discuss matters.
Then the group decided it was time to change.
"The man at the property was a pimp, my husband was Obi-Wan Kenobi from Star Wars, Michael's friend was a knight and Michael was a king," Sue said.
& # 39; Michael helped the children put on their costumes and I helped him with his royal dress.
& # 39; They all loved it, especially Paris as Spiderman.
& # 39; I got the feeling that Michael really liked that kind of thing, he liked to dress up and really played the part. & # 39;
Sue took some happy snapshots of the evening, including a group photo in her husband's office.
Mysterious Jackson did not stop her children from being photographed, but at that time the children were still a guarded secret.
In the photo a huge blue dragon – a prop from the couple's costume company – towers above the group in the background.
Sue says that Paris has left behind a small red sweater, seen here by Sue and Darron & daughter, Alexandra, an 18-year-old medical student and aspiring actress
Jackson sat in an old decorative wooden chair – the perfect throne for a King of Pop – and is seen with a Christmas card given to him by Sue.
She said: “It had a photo of my family on the front, he loved it and held it all night.
& # 39; Michael thanked us for a wonderful evening and even invited us to Neverland. & # 39;
Then everyone left the house just before midnight.
Jackson strangely walked out the door and still wore the king's crown and dress.
"He and the kids loved the outfits so much that we said they could keep them," Sue said.
Sue says that Paris has left behind a small red sweater, seen here by Sue and Darron & daughter Alexandra, an 18-year-old medical student and aspiring actress.
She added: & # 39; It was a great evening and certainly one that we will not soon forget. & # 39;
The Goldmans said they would not comment on the controversy surrounding the recent HBO documentary Leaving Neverland, which leveled horrific allegations of child abuse with the superstar singer.
Instead, they chose to remember Jackson for the nice dad he was during his visit to their home.
& # 39; It was a very nice day for everyone. We like to look back and smile, & # 39; said Darron.
