Michael Jackson 'Gay' Allegations

Michael Jackson was a "homosexual with a taste for young men", it has been alleged.

The late singer's unofficial biographer Ian Halperin claims he has spoken to two men Michael - who died of a suspected cardiac arrest last Thursday (25.06.09) - had relationships with.

Ian added although Michael - who was accused of sexual abuse by 13-year-old Jordan Chandler in 1993 and by 13-year-old Gavin Arvizo in 2003 - was attracted to guys who were younger than him, he was never interested in children.

Ian told Britain's Daily Mail newspaper: "It is clear to me that Michael was homosexual and that his taste was for young men, albeit not as young as Jordan Chandler or Gavin Arvizo.

"In the course of my investigations, I spoke to two of his gay lovers, one a Hollywood waiter, the other an aspiring actor. The waiter had remained friends, perhaps more, with the singer until his death last week. He had served Jackson at a restaurant, Jackson made his interest plain and the two slept together the following night. According to the waiter, Jackson fell in love."

Ian adds the waiter showed him evidence of his alleged affair with Michael, including photos of the pair together.

The writer explained: "Other witnesses speak of strings of young men visiting his house at all hours, even in the period of his decline. Some stayed overnight.

"When Jackson lived in Las Vegas, one of his closest aides told how he would sneak off to a 'grungy, rat-infested' motel - often dressed as a woman to disguise his identity - to meet a male construction worker he had fallen in love with."

Ian - who has written a book about Michael titled 'The Final Years Of Michael Jackson', and claimed the singer had just six months to live last December - has also spoken about Michael's deteriorating health. He claims the 50-year-old King of Pop suffered from skin blemishes and discoloured nails.

He explained: "I had established beyond doubt, for example, that Jackson relied on an extensive collection of wigs."

The writer also suggests Michael was suffering from a genetic condition called Alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency which affected his lungs.

The condition means the lungs do not have enough protein to protect them, and Michael is said to have received injections of Alpha-1 antitrypsin produced from human plasma to help him.

Ian quotes a source as saying: "Yeah, that's what he's got. He's in bad shape. They're worried that he might need a lung transplant but he may be too weak. Some days he can hardly see and he's having a lot of trouble walking."
