Michael Jackson London, March 4 (IANS) Whitney Houston, who died at the age of 48 last month, reportedly had a year-long affair with Jermaine Jackson.

Contactmusic.com reports that the late-singer became close to Michael Jackson’s brother when he started to work with her in the mid 1980s. Jermaine claimed they had strong feelings for each other in an autobiography.

“Jermaine didn’t tell even half the story in the book. He made it sound like they flirted and backed away. But they were lovers. In those early days with Whitney, he was smuggled into her hotel rooms, they worked extra late in the studio and she even had a codename for him. She referred to him as ‘Jai’,” a source told the Sun on Sunday newspaper.

A friend of Whitney said: “The reason it ended was because Jermaine wouldn’t leave his then-wife Hazel Gordy, and Whitney was angry.”

Jermaine, who split from Hazel in 1988, is believed to have been particularly upset by Whitney’s recent death because it echoed that of his brother Michael.

The source said: “Jermaine remains on good terms with Whitney’s family. He knows they know. But Whitney was no husband-stealer. She just happened to fall for a married guy.”
