Jermaine Jackson says he and Whitney Houston had fun together
A few days after David Gest had claimed in an interview that Whitney Houston was in “love” with Michael Jackson , the Black or White singer’s brother Jermaine has said that it was actually him who had a relationship with her. Hollyscoop are reporting that Jermaine made the claims when he was at Eva Longoria’s Pre-Oscar Flamenco Party at Beso in Hollywood.
Although he said the relationship was professional, he apparently also told Hollyscoop that the pair had ‘a lot of fun together.’ Jermaine, who appeared in Celebrity Big Brother in 2007, also said that he’d spoken to Houston’s mum Cissy since the star’s passing away.
He had apparently told them “we are all waiting”, in reference to the results on the I Will Always Love You singer’s cause of death.He also had some advise for her daughter Bobbi Kristina.
“Family. Love. Do the right thing, it’s so important. Keep your family close,” the Mirror quoted him as saying.David Gest made the claims about Michael Jackson and Houston to The Sun earlier this week.
Michael Jackson shared passionate kiss
Whitney Houston “really wanted to marry” Michael Jackson, according to their friend David Gest.
The music producer was a close confidant of both the late stars, and he believes Whitney – who was laid to rest in New Jersey on Sunday on Feb. 19 – would have liked to have got together with the “Thriller” singer, but he was “too shy” to make a move on her.
“She really loved Michael and he adored her,” he said. “Michael told me they once shared a passionate kiss, and she told me she was at one time very much in love with him.
“I think she really wanted to marry him, but although he had a crush on her, he was too shy.
“Later, he confessed to me he should have made every move. If they had got together, I believe Whitney would not have done drugs or become a semi-recluse.”
The 58-year-old star – who was previously married to Liza Minnelli – saw Whitney perform in Copenhagen, Denmark, last year and he was reduced to tears by the fact she could no longer hold the notes she used to.
David – who interviewed the music legend for his acclaimed documentary ‘Michael Jackson: The Life of an Icon’ – added in an interview with The Sun newspaper: “When we met last year, it was at her concert in Copenhagen and it was the saddest performance I had ever seen her give.
“Tears came to my eyes as she just couldn’t hold her notes. I actually walked out after four songs, had a sob then came back to watch the rest of the show. My heart was bleeding for her.”
