Liberace's ex-boyfriend, Scott Thorson, has rehashed his claims that he had a romantic relationship with the late Michael Jackson back in the 1970s.
In an interview with The Sun, Thorson opened up about his life with famed pianist and singer Liberace, as well as his claim that he and Michael Jackson had a six year love affair, reports the Huffington Post. Thorson's romance with Liberace is portrayed in Steven Soderbergh's recent HBO flick, "Behind the Candelabra."
"Liberace introduced me and Michael in the late 1970s. It was right around the time 'Thriller' was coming out and Michael and I became lovers," he said. "Our relationship went on for six or seven years. Michael was very generous too. He treated me well."
"Liberace and I had both undergone plastic surgery around the same time Michael underwent a nose job because he didn't think he was handsome," he added, according to the Daily Mail. "We all healed together at the Liberace compound in Palm Springs."
This is not the first time the 54-year-old discussed his reported fling with the late King of Pop. The first time Thorson discussed his affair with Jackson was back in 2004 while speaking with the National Enquirer. At the time, he claimed they had their first sexual encounter in 1979, but the pop star's camp denied the allegations. In a 2012 interview with "Entertainment Tonight," Thorson said he and Jackson had a relationship that "would cross boundaries."
The former chauffeur was arrested on charges of burglary and identity theft for using stolen credit cards in May. He was bailed out by Dennis Hof, owner of the Bunny Ranch brothel in Nevada, where he is currently staying.
