(LONDON) — A former bodyguard to Michael Jackson tells British tabloid The Sun the late King of Pop had a series of “romps” with Whitney Houston and even had plans to marry her.
Matt Fiddes, described as a multi-millionaire martial arts master, tells The Sun that Jackson never got over the fact he couldn’t be with Houston permanently.
Fiddes tells how Houston was a regular visitor to Jackson’s Neverland Ranch: “Whitney practically moved in to 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.”
Fiddes alleges Jackson was impotent for years, due to a high intake of drugs and alcohol, and that he was haunted by both his baldness and his anorexia. Fiddes even alleges that Jackson was a Nazi sympathizer.
The British bodyguard is launching a legal battle to prove he is the biological father of Michael Jackson’s youngest son, Prince Michael II, aka “Blanket.” Fiddes claims he made a sperm donation in 2001 after Jackson told him he wanted to “create an athletic child.” Blanket was born in 2002. Legal papers are reportedly being prepared for filing in a Los Angeles court to have DNA tests carried out to prove Fiddes’ paternity claim.
