Scott Thorson, the former lover of
Liberace, has reiterated his claim that he had an affair with Michael
Jackson, the King of Pop.
Thorson appeared on ABC's The View
to promote Behind the Candelabra, the biopic based on a book
written by Thorson which stars Michael Douglas as Liberace and Matt
Damon as Thorson.
“Liberace introduced me to Michael,”
Thorson said. “Michael and I had a relationship. … A love
“While you were with Liberace?”
Barbara Walters asked.
“No, no. About '82 is when I broke
up with Liberace. After that.”
Citing Thorson's run ins with the law
and history with drugs, Sherri Shepherd asked Thorson whether the
public should believe his claims.
Thorson said that he should be believed
because he's passed two lie detector tests.
“Well, I think so. You know, Michael
Jackson. You know, I took two polygraph tests; I passed those. It's
no secret of my relationship with Liberace,” he said. (The video
