A man has stepped forward to claim he was Michael Jackson's gay lover.

In an interview with Extra, Jason Pfeiffer, CEO of a medical company, said he had a “passionate and sexual” relationship with the King of Pop.

“I was Michael Jackson's boyfriend,” Pfeiffer said. “We definitely hit it off the first time we met.”

The pair met while Pfeiffer was working in Dr. Arnold Klein's office. Klein, Jackson's dermatologist, backed up the story.

“I was just very happy for both of them,” Klein said, adding that he once walked in on the men with Jackson shirtless.

Pfeiffer said his friendship with Jackson grew into a romance that lasted until Jackson's death.

“I know we loved each other,” he said. “I know he told me that all the time. I believe that he was probably my soul mate.”

Pfeiffer said he believed Jackson would approve of him setting the record straight: “I think he [Jackson] would have approved of that, yes.”

Throughout his life, however, Jackson, who died last June, denied rumors that he was gay. Pfeiffer said Jackson was “probably bisexual.”
