One of Michael Jackson’s former exes is releasing a tell-all book about the pair’s relationship.
Shana Mangatal, whose book is titled Michael and Me: The Untold Story of Michael Jackson’s Secret Romance, first met the singer in 1988 and claims they shared “20 years of different encounters and intimate phone conversations”.
In the book she reveals Michael “loved women” and wasn’t “asexual”.
“The book covers all of that from me meeting him as a fan and him flirting with me at our very first meeting and from then on I was like, ‘OK, there’s more to Michael that meets the eye, because he just flirted with me.’”
She added: “He’s not asexual! He’s not this man-child – he’s normal!”
She claims the reason their secret relationship ended was because he got married, reports Radar Online.
“He was very respectful of his marriages and that’s why it was sporadic,” she said. “We became really close during the 1993 scandal and he married Lisa Marie so that kind of cut things off a bit until the divorce.”
Despite the singer passing away seven years ago, Shana reveals she’s only recently been able to look through the music icon’s pictures and other memorabilia.
Shana kept diaries during their time together and said she now wants the public to know things about Michael that she saw.
