If you look further behind the candelabra, past Liberace and his ex-lover Scott Thorson, and like, over to the far, far right you’ll find Michael Jackson. That's the part where your eyes will grow large like "whoa" because WHOA.
Liberace’s former partner Scott wrote a memoir about his relationship with the famously guady diamond-loving pianist, which recently inspired the HBO movie directed by Steven Soderbergh.
Now, with a spotlight pushed back on Scott, he’s dishing even more details, this time about his alleged affair with Michael that went on for years—“six or seven” to be exactly inexact about it.
“Liberace introduced me and Michael in the late 1970s,” Scott told The Sun. “It was right around the time Thriller was coming out and Michael and I became lovers.”
This isn’t the first time Scott has told this anecdote (which Michael’s attorney Steve Cochran dismissed entirely as “false trash”). In 2004, he first told it to The National Enquirer, detailing their first sexual encounter.
“I was standing only a few feet away from Michael when he motioned with his hand to come over to him and join him in bed,” Scott relayed to the tabloid. “I climbed onto the bed. Our lovemaking session lasted about an hour.”
Scott, who’s now 54, has been in legal trouble recently. He's also claiming he wasn't paid appropriately for his contributions to the film and that he still feels hostile that the cast and crew of the film didn't financially support him while he was behind bars. Last Sunday he had to be bailed out of jail while awaiting a burglary charge sentence, so take that into consideration when you decide whether or not to believe his MJ affair story.
