Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston had an affair for a short period back in 1991, according to martial arts expert and former bodyguard of the late King of Pop Matt Fides.
Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston's affair only last for two weeks, but M.J. was smitten, according to the confidant. Even though Houston had previously slept with another Jackson, it didn't stop him from loving her, according to Fides' interview with The Sun.
"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," Fides alleged.
The secret affair, which only lasted two weeks, took place at Michael's famous Neverland Ranch. In 1991, both Whitney and Michael were in the prime of their lives as superstar recording artists. Behind closed doors, however, they were just like any other young couple.
"Whitney practically moved in to Michael's ranch and they had a fling like any other young couple," said Fides. "But Michael said later he had always hoped the relationship had gone further, and I know he dreamed of marrying her."
A year after the fling, Whitney was married to Bobby Brown, but even then, their tryst was not forgotten. 10 years later at a concert in Madison Square Garden, the two met again, exchanging hugs and emotion.
Along with Fides outrageous claims about Jackson and Houston's torrid love affair are reports of Jackson's impotence, baldness, anorexia, Nazism, alcoholism, attempts to appear "sexless" to media, addiction to prescription drugs, obsession with entertaining publicity, and use of a sperm donor- Fides- in order to have his second son, Prince Michael Jackson II, nicknamed Blanket.
On top of all this, Fides claimed that the most tragic of Jackson's problems was the loneliness he experienced, even while being one of the most prominent entertainers of a generation.
"He'd always call me in the early hours of the morning and it was tragic how lonely this man was," said the former bodyguard. "It became clear from his voice in those early morning calls he was on a lot of drugs."
This isn't the first time Fides has profited from his relationship with Michael Jackson, however short-lived it may have been. Katherine Jackson, Michael's mother, alleged that he previously sold stories to tabloids, and that Michael doesn't know Fides that well, even though they have been seen together.
"Fides tried to pretend that he was a close friend of my son Michael, but when I spoke to Michael about him, he could not remember who he was. The whole family was deeply upset by the interviews he gave shortly after Michael's death, which no friend would have done," said the mother in 2010, according to Daily Mail.
Fides, the celebrity martial arts expert and multi-millionaire, has also claimed that Blanket is his son, and that he wants to see him "a couple of times a year." He is taking his claims to court for the legal right to see Prince Michael Jackson II, even though it's "not a custody battle."
