Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston both died as musical legends who created the pathway for the bulk of today’s most successful music artists. Both have created hits that will forever be staples in music, and have cemented a place in the hearts of most music lovers forever. One can say that both the passing of Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston were both shocking and a great blow to the world of entertainment.
But who would have thought that two of the most polarizing figures in music would get together, outside of music and have a hot romance?
According to Michael Jackson’s former bodyguard Matt Fiddes, that’s actually what happened. Fiddes claims the following in a recent interview with UK’s The Sun:
“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 into 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.”
Unfortunately, rumors began linking Houston to Michael’s older brother Jermaine Jackson. According to Fiddes, Michael “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.”
According to additional reports, the affair between Jermaine and Houston happened while he was married to Hazel Gordy, daughter to Motown mogul Barry Gordy. Latoya Jackson confirmed the rumors of the Jermaine and Houston affair during an interview on “The Talk.”
While neither claim has been denied or confirmed by the families of either of the deceased superstars, the speculation continues.
