Since his death last year, every nutjob has come forward claiming to be Michael Jackson’s kid/wife/sperm donor/spiritual vessel. So it’s surprising it has taken this long for anyone to put their hand up and say they were his gay lover.
Jason Pfeiffer, a heavyset man in his mid-30s, was the former assistant to MJ’s dermatologist Dr. Arnold Klein and now has come forward claiming he was the Pop King’s boyfriend.
Dr. Klein claims he saw the couple together while Jackson was shirtless, adding, “When you see two people looking at each other you know what’s happening. I was just very happy for both of them.”
Klein, a lontigme confidant of Jackson’s, was rumored to be the biological father of the singer’s two older children, Prince and Paris.
Pfeiffer, now a CEO of a medical company, says he began a “passionate and sexual” relationship with Jackson shortly after they met in 2008 in Klein’s office and continued up until Jackson’s death last June.
“We were very close,” Pfeiffer reveals in an exclusive interview last night with “Extra” entertainment reporter Alicia Jacobs. “I know we loved each other. I know he told me that all the time. I told him that all the time. I believe that he was probably my soul mate,” said Pfeiffer.
The two reportedly bonded while talking about their childhoods.
“We were just sitting there and we both started to cry and I got up and went over to him and said it’s going to be okay Michael… We hugged,” Pfeiffer adds. “And it was kind of then that the hug was a little bit more. It wasn’t until a few months later that it was obvious that Michael had feelings for me as well.”
As to Michael’s denials that he was gay, Pfeiffer says, “I just assumed that he was probably bisexual.”
Pfeiffer believes Michael would approve of him setting the record straight.
