New Michael Jackson Tell-All Promises a Gay Old Time
British newspaper the Sun reports that a new Michael Jackson tell-all biography is being rushed to the bookshelves on Tuesday, and it makes some explosive allegations about the singer, who passed away on June 25 at the age of 50.
According to the book’s author, Ian Halperin, “virtually everyone” around the singer knew that he was secretly gay, and Halperin—who in December 2008 predicted that Jackson had six months to live due to health issues—claims to have tracked down two of Jackson’s ex lovers, a Hollywood waiter and an aspiring actor named “Lawrence.”
In the book, Unmasked: The Final Years of Michael Jackson, one alleged male lover of Jackson’s claims, “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.”
Halperin’s book also alleges that Jackson would leave his home late at night dressed as a woman to keep dates with a male lover.
According to aspiring actor Lawrence, his relationship with the singer was brief, but torrid, and they met virtually every night for three weeks.
“He was very shy, ” Lawrence recalls. “But when he started to have sex, he was insatiable.”
