Drug-addled superstar Michael Jackson had a brief affair with doomed diva Whitney Houston that was so torrid he never got over it — and he always dreamed of marrying her, his bodyguard now says.
The songbirds came together for an “ultrasecret affair” in the bizarre but regal splendor of his Neverland ranch in California in 1991, according to martial arts master Matt Fiddes, who was Jackson’s protector and confidant for 11 years.
“Whitney practically moved into Michael’s ranch — and they had a fling like any other young couple,” according to the sensational account Fiddes provided to British tabloid The Sun.
“Michael said later he had always hoped the relationship had gone further — and I know he dreamed of marrying her.”
Fiddes says Jackson loved to cultivate his “sexless” image to add to his mystique — but actually, he insists, “He was a straight man!”
Straight, but sadly, impotent in the last decade of his life, because of his massive consumption of prescription drugs and booze, the bodyguard adds.
Fiddes, who worked for Jackson from 1998 until his tragic death in 2009, said the pop icon remained haunted for the rest of his life by his impassioned romance with Houston, who was 28 when she fell into his arms, five years his junior.
“They met because they were two of the biggest recording artists on the planet and mixing in the same circles,” he said. “And they instantly connected as kindred spirits because they understood each other’s massive fame.”
The affair lasted only two weeks, and to Jackson’s horror, she broke it off, and in 1992, married misbehaving R&B singer Bobby Brown.
Fiddes also regaled The Sun with troubling revelations that could transform the world’s view of Jackson if verified:
He was an anti-Semitic Nazi sympathizer. One of his many pill-prescribing doctors was an alleged neo-Nazi who sold Jackson on his poisonous bilge.
But Fiddes says Jackson dumped the doctor and was psychiatrically “reprogrammed” so he would no longer “think anti-Semitic thoughts.”
Jackson’s delusions had conquered his ability to reason. Even as his body was ravaged with needle marks and puncture holes from his prodigious drug intake, he would insist they were merely “spider bites.”
Fiddes also claims MJ was obsessed with his baldness. It shamed him so much that he devoted an entire room in Neverland to his collection of hundreds of wigs.
This bodyguard sounds even more delusional than MJ riiiiight?
