Liberace's former lover has stepped forward to publicly declare he once had
a gay affair with troubled pop star Michael Jackson.
SCOTT THORSON, 45, made his shocking claims to American tabloid the
NATIONAL ENQUIRER, alleging their tryst took place in 1979, shortly after they
were introduced by Liberace in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Thorson recalls, "The day Michael and I met we hit it off. We spent days
running around Las Vegas together.
"Michael wanted to spend all his free time with me. We are only five
months apart in age so we had a lot in common with each other."
Thorson claims his relationship with Jackson intensified in London in the
early 80s, where Liberace was performing and Jackson was working on a selection
of songs with Paul McCartney.
He says that when Jackson visited him at the home of late female
impersonator Danny La Rue, he took the 45-year-old BAD singer up to the master
bedroom where he tried on new clothes.
Thorson continues, "We were two young men extremely attracted to each
other. You could've cut the sexual tension with a knife.
"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. I climbed onto the bed. Our
lovemaking session lasted about an hour."
Thorson, who claims he had sex with Jackson again for the final time a day
later at LORD MONTAGUE's house in the outskirts of London, says he visited the
singer on two occasions years later at a hotel where he alleges Jackson was in
of what looked like gay porn magazines featuring young boys.
While Thorson's romance with Liberace later fizzled, his friendship with
Jackson also deteriorated because of the THRILLER singer's alleged porn habit.
Thorson later fell into a spiral of drug abuse and is now battling hepatitis
The publication says it put Thorson through a lie detector test over the
claims - which he passed in the presence of an expert.
And now Thorson declares he's willing to testify about his alleged affair
in Jackson's current child molestation case.
He adds, "If the district attorney wants to talk to me about my
experiences with Michael Jackson I would be more than happy to tell him the
"And if Michael tries to deny what I've said about our homosexual acts in
London, I challenge him to take a polygraph. I did."
