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
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.”
