Music producer David Gest, who was very close with both fallen stars, reveals that Whitney Houston “really loved Michael and he adored her. Michael told me they once shared a passionate kiss, and she told me she was at one time very much in love with him.”
A passionate kiss, really? Are we talking about the same Michael Jackson? Small, thin, talented, got a face like Diana Ross, nose problems?
Apparently Whitney interpreted that one kiss as “Holy Matrimony” but Michael was too shy?
“I think she really wanted to marry him, but although he had a crush on her, he was too shy,” says Gest.
I love Michael Jackson, I’m a huge fan, but I don’t think Michael Jackson’s “girl problems” were because he was “too shy.”
Think of how different life would be if Michael didn’t marry his random baby momma, and how Whitney’s life might have been altered if she was with Michael?
“Later, he confessed to me he should have made every move,” says Gest, “If they had got together, I believe Whitney would not have done drugs or become a semi-recluse.”
Michael was also a huge fan of Whitney Houston's music and David reveals that Michael was absolutely torn-up when Whitney Houston’s voice began to decline.
“Tears came to my eyes as she just couldn’t hold her notes,” Gest remembers Michael saying at a concert,” 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.”
One thing is certain, if Michael Jackson did indeed marry Whitney Houston they would definitely have been the original Jay-Z and Beyonce. Just saying.
