Michael Jackson - Michael Jackson Wanted Brazilian Wife

A Brazilian model has claimed she was asked to marry Michael Jackson.

Xuxa - who has previously dated late racing driver Ayrton Senna and soccer legend Pele - was invited to see the late King of Pop several times and had dinner with him before one of his entourage suggested she would make a good wife for the singer and a great mother to his kids.

Xuxa - whose real name is Maria da Graca Meneghel - told TV Globo's 'Fantastico' show: ''The entourage of Michael Jackson wanted him to marry, have children. They were looking for someone. I was working in Spain, they invited me to see his show several times.

''Later they called me to invite me to Neverland. He knew everything about me, he read everything about me. I had dinner with him.

''And later came a proposal from his impresario asking me whether I would consider living with him because he wanted to have children, marry. They thought marriage with a person concerned about children in Latin America would be a good thing.''

Although Xuxa - who is now a children's TV host and Brazil's richest woman with an estimated fortune of $1 billion - was a big fan of Michael, who died of acute Propofol intoxication in June 2009, she turned down the proposal.

She added: ''For me [Michael Jackson] was an idol, but from idol to something else there is a difference. My answer, obviously, was no.''

Michael went on to marry twice. He first tied the knot with Elvis Presley's daughter Lisa Marie Presley and was with her for just under two years until 1996.

He was then wed to nurse Debbie Rowe, who he married later that same year.

Michael and Debbie - who had children Prince Michael, 15, and Paris, 14, together - divorced in 1999.

The 'Thriller' hitmaker also had another son, Prince Michael II, who is known as 'Blanket', in 2002 but his mother's identity is unknown.

I'm not going to say that this isn't true, but I've come to a conclusion... I'm going to tell the world that I not met Michael while I was working behind the cash register at Daffy Department Store, but he also fell madly in love w/ me & after a 2 week romance, he proposed. I turned him down however, because I only liked him as a friend. It's not true... but, do you think everyone will believe me? Well... I take that back... it's "partly" true... I really DID work for Daffy's!
