Did Liberace’s Ex Have a Six-Year Affair With Michael Jackson?
In an interview with the British tabloid newspaper, The Sun, Liberace’s chauffeur and ex-boyfriend opens up about his life, including his alleged affair with Michael Jackson.
Scott Thorson told the publication about his relationship with Liberace, soon after Steven Soderbergh’s HBO movie, "Behind the Candelabra," premiered, and also delved into details about his six-year affair with the King of Pop.
"Liberace introduced me and Michael in the late 1970s. It was right around the time ’Thriller’ was coming out and Michael and I became lovers," he said. "Our relationship went on for six or seven years. Michael was very generous, too. He treated me well."
Thorson added that he and Liberace both received plastic surgery around the same time Jackson "underwent a nose job because he didn’t think he was handsome. We all healed together at the Liberace compound in Palm Springs."
This isn’t the first time Thorson spoke about his alleged romance with the late pop icon. In 2004, he told The National Enquierer that he had a sexual encounter with Jackson in 1979 at the home of British female impersonator Danny La Rue.
"I was standing only a few feet away from Michael when he motioned with his hand to come over to him and join him in bed," Thorson told the tabloid. "I climbed onto the bed. Our lovemaking session lasted about an hour."
Jackson denied the allegations. But in 2012, in an interview with "Entertainment Tonight," Thorson once again mentioned his time with the singer and said the relationship "would cross boundaries."
