Michael Jackson Whitney Houston AffairThe king and princess of pop, Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston were once a steamy item, according to Matt Fiddes, who was a bodyguard for the iconic performer, according to The Sun.

The superstar couple met back in 1991, six years after Houston ended her year-long relationship with Jackson’s brother Jermaine.  At the time, Jackson was 33 and Houston was 28.

“They met because they were two of the biggest recording artists on the planet and mixing in the same circles. They instantly connected as kindred spirits, because they understood each other’s massive fame,” says Fiddes, a British martial arts expert.

Even though Jackson was reportedly still disturbed by the fact that his brother had an affair with Houston, he decided to pursue one with her nonetheless. “He was furious when he heard she had also slept with Jermaine but this didn’t stop him [from] holding a candle for her his whole life,” says Fiddes.

Both artists were so smitten by each other that Houston practically moved into the Neverland ranch. Although their relationship reportedly lasted a mere two weeks, Jackson was so enamored with Houston that he actually thought about sealing the deal and making her his wife.  Fiddes, who spoke to Jackson three days before he sucumbed to his unexpected death in 2009, also reveals that his former employer never quite got over Houston when she ended their relationship.

Interestingly enough, two weeks later Houston would go on to meet R&B singer Bobby Brown, marry him, and live a tumultuous lifestyle that included alcohol and drug addiction.

Apparently, Jackson’s torch for Houston was quite evident when the megastars met again in 2001 during his Madison Square Garden concert in New York City.  “They were both a mess, to be honest. They shared what would be their final hugs and Michael begged Whitney to get off the drugs that were destroying her life.  The two of them whispered that they loved each other as they hugged. The emotion was written all over their faces,” Fiddes contends.

Ironically, both Jackson and Houston died unexpectedly under drug-related circumstances.  Jackson passed away nearly three years ago from a cocktail of drugs including a lethal dose of the sedative propofol.  Although Houston was found drowned in a bathtub this February, a coroner’s report documented cocaine as well as other narcotics, which were found in her system that contributed to her death.
