A man who worked at the offices of Michael Jackson’s dermatologist is claiming he had an affair with the singer.

Jason Pfeiffer, who worked for Dr Arnold Klein, said he first got to know Jackson over the phone and the couple began an affair when he gave the singer a lift home.

He told Australian magazine Woman’s Day: “I guess our first ‘date’ was in my car. We went for a drive and were talking and having fun, but Michael had his minders who were ‘nosy’ as Michael put it.

“We had to make sure we were not caught, and although the date was short as I had to take him home before anyone noticed, we had a great time.

“I thought nobody else knew, but have since discovered that others did surmise the truth.”

Jackson died on June 25th. His death is still being investigated and it is reported that his doctor Conrad Murray will be charged in the next few days with manslaughter over the various prescription drugs the singer was taking at the time of his death.

Pfeiffer also described Jackson as his “soulmate” and said he had been behaving strangely in the two weeks leading up to his death.

He said: “He was overly religious, overly dramatic, exhausting and exhausted. He was saying goodbyes the week before passing. Everyone was creeped out by it.”
