BEIJING, May 2 (Xinhuanet) -- Former assistant to Michael Jackson's dermatologist claims that he was the late pop icon's last secret boyfriend, according to media reports.
“We definitely hit it off the first time we met,” Jason Pfeiffer, the middle-aged man, named told TV show "Extra". He insists Jackson saw him as a "soul mate."
Pfeiffer alleged that their "passionate and sexual" relationship began a year before Jackson's death, after meeting at the office of Dr. Arnold Klein, Jackson's former dermatologist.
He said they bonded over their troubled childhoods. "We were just sitting there and we both started to cry, and I got up and went over to him and said it’s going to be okay Michael…We hugged,” he says. “And it was kind of then that the hug was a little bit more. It wasn’t until a few months later that it was obvious that Michael had feelings for me as well."
Dr. Kein also backs up his assistant's story, saying that he once walked in on Jason and Michael shirtless. "When you see two people looking at each other you know what's happening. I was just very happy for both of them," he says.
