Michael Jackson's bodyguard Matt Fiddes claims that the King of Pop had a secret affair with soul singer Whitney Houston, who died on February 12, 2012.
Fiddes, who was Jackson's confidante before his death in 2009, was quoted by Sun Online as saying that Houston even moved into the Thriller hitmaker's Neverland ranch.
"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 (brother) Jermaine but this didn't stop him holding a candle for her his whole life," Fiddes said.
The bodyguard also claimed that Jackson and Houston met in 1991, when both were at the height of their careers.
"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," he said, adding that the romance lasted just two weeks and began a year before Houston wed Bobby Brown.
