Whitney Houston had a secret affair with Jermaine Jackson, with the late Michael Jackson one of the only people who knew about it. The UK's Sun newspaper revealed the news on Sunday (March 4, 2012), claiming that Michael was well-aware of the couple's year long relationship but did not approve.
The report suggests that Whitney's huge hit 'Saving All My Love For You' echoed the story of her secret affair with Jermaine. The couple "never lost touch" after the romance ended, which is why Jermaine was so distraught after Whitney was found dead in her bathtub at the Beverly Hilton Hotel last month. As the public knew the pair were good friends, it was seen as strange when Jermaine failed to turn up at the funeral in Newark, New Jersey, but a source said, "Her death has devastated Jermaine because of the history between them.No one understood the scale of his grief because they didn't know what they shared". Michael Jackson, 50, died when he was administered with a cocktail of prescription drugs in 2009, while Whitney is understood to have taken prescription drugs before her death, though this remains unconfirmed until toxicology results are returned.
