New Book Claims Michael Jackson Was Gay

July 14, 2009

The Sun has recently reported that Michael Jackson was indeed homosexual and even had numerous flings with a string of male lovers, using some rather bizarre tactics to keep his secret safe.

A new book released in the wake of MJ’s untimely death is insisting that “virtually everybody” around him knew he was gay. The book, Unmasked: The Final Years of Michael Jackson, says that Jackson would sneak out of his home very late at night dressed as a woman to go hook up with various male lovers.

Biographer Ian Halperin claims to have tracked down two of the Michael’s alleged male lovers:

One, who Jacko was “madly in love” with, met him for liaisons at a grungy motel which was all the debt-ridden star could afford. As one of the men told Halperin, “The very first time he had sex with me he said, 'The King of Pop’s going to lick your lollipop'. I still laugh thinking about that.”

The other Jackson lover he tracked down was a Hollywood waiter/aspiring actor known only as "Lawrence":

The actor boasted they met almost every night for three weeks at his Hollywood Hills home in a short but passionate affair. Lawrence added: “He was very shy. But when he started to have sex, he was insatiable.”

Halperin also claims to have interviewed many acquaintances and supporters who told him Michael was absolutely gay. Halperin stated: “Virtually everybody has told me. Even those who are his most ardent defenders, people who maintain he is innocent of the molestation charges, insist that he is homosexually inclined.”

Is this really all that surprising?
