Whitney Houston Michael Jackson
Whitney Houston Michael Jackson, The King and Queens of Pop made sweet music together – in the bedroom.
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 “S-EX-less” 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. (New York Daily News )
