Liberace's lover Scott Thorson has sensationally revealed he was more than just friends with Michael Jackson.
Thorson, who was once the late showman's teenage toyboy, has opened up about his relationship with Jackson in a new U.S. TV interview, alleging their friendship became intimate behind Liberace's back.
The socialite, who claims he introduced the King of Pop to the plastic surgeon who "did his nose", suggests he became close to the pop star just before he broke away from the Jackson 5 to become a solo artist.
Asked by reporter Christine MCLarty if his relationship with Jackson was just a friendship, Thorson paused before telling Entertainment Tonight, "Yes," before laughing and adding, "Michael's not here to defend himself."
When asked if there was ever anything sexual between himself and Jackson, Thorson added, "Michael and I had a relationship that... Yes... It crossed the boundaries (of friendship) and that's about all I'm comfortable about saying.
"We were both young, we both liked each, we had a lot of fun. We went all over Europe together. Michael was my best friend, I was his best friend."
