What on Earth?
Reports surfaced a few months back that Whitney Houston was involved in an affair with Jermaine Jackson in 1980s, and now, Michael Jackson's former bodyguard, Matt Fiddles, has revealed that six years later, the late diva also became involved with the also-deceased pop icon during a two-week fling at his Neverland Ranch!
"I loved Michael so much but I finally feel it's time to get everything that horrified and upset me over the years off my chest. I also know this affair will end all the myths that Michael was some kind of child molester - he was a straight man. One of the many stories that has never been told about Michael is that he had an ultra-secret affair with Whitney Houston that he never got over. He was furious when he heard she had also slept with Jermaine but this didn't stop him holding a candle for her his whole life. They met because they were two of the biggest recording artists on the planet and mixing in the same circles. They instantly connected as kindred spirits because they understood each other's massive fame. Whitney practically moved in to Michael's ranch and they had a fling like any other young couple. But Michael said later he had always hoped the relationship had gone further, and I know he dreamed of marrying her.
[At Michael's anniversary concerts at New York's Madison Square Garden in 2001] They were both a mess, to be honest. They shared what would be their final hugs and Michael begged Whitney to get off the drugs that were destroying her life. The two of them whispered that they loved each other as they hugged. The emotion was written all over their faces."
Well, unfortunately, with both parties passed on, we will never know for sure if this guy's claims have any validity, but it certainly is a pretty tragic account of two people very clearly battling personal demons and finding solace in each other when they probably very much needed it.
May they both R.I.P.
