Michael Jackson was 'scared to death' of having sex with women and 'repulsed' by prostitutes, claims book
It has now been claimed that the late King of Pop was "repulsed" and "traumatized" by incidents with prostitutes as a teenager and eventually became "scared to death" of having sex with women.
According to reports, the legendary singer was exposed to illicit sex at a young age when he was the diminutive frontman of The Jackson Five, The Sun reported.
While his ruthless father Joseph forced the family pop outfit to play in shady strip clubs, his mother Katherine was a devout Jehovah's Witness.
Michael had once opened up about seeing his older brothers engaging in orgies with groupies when he shared hotel rooms with them. However, the young singer showed zero interest in the opposite sex, much to his siblings' astonishment.
On at least two separate occasions, Michael's relatives hired prostitutes in a bid to take his virginity, according to multiple witness accounts.
When the child star turned 15 and had already hit puberty, he faced an "intervention" of sorts, according to the book 'Untouchable: The Strange Life and Tragic Death of Michael Jackson'.
In the book, author Randall Sullivan claimed the teenager was locked in a room with "two hookers" and was told, "say goodbye to your virginity". However, Michael's response was to pick up a bible from a nightstand and read "passages from Scripture aloud to them."
The woman saw that the innocent 15-year-old had "tears streaming down his face" and left the room "shaken" with guilt. Later, his sister Rebbie told a friend that the encounter had "traumatized her brother."
In another incident documented by Jackson biographer J. Randy Taraborrelli, a prostitute named Lillian Harries was asked if she desired to "spend an evening with Michael" after a concert in New York. Unsurprisingly, the excited groupie's response was, "Hell yeah."
When she was brought into a dressing room to meet the 'Smooth Criminal' hitmaker, he asked her straight away, "Why are you a prostitute?" Harris responded, "Because I need the money." But when Harris began undressing, she said the teenage Michael Jackson was "repulsed."
"He seemed interested so I undid my blouse and showed him my breasts," she continued. "He turned his head, repulsed. 'Stop, I can't have sex with you', he said. 'Please put them back'. When I asked him why, he told me, 'Because I just can't'. I thought he meant he couldn't get aroused. He looked so sad. Then he said, 'Can we talk about you and your life?' I didn't want to talk so I gave him my telephone number, 'Any time you want to get off, call me', I said. Michael looked at me and asked, 'What does that mean, get off?' He was totally sincere. I told him, 'It means screw, Michael. Any time you want to screw, call me'."
Jackson's shyness around the opposite sex became evident once again in another reported encounter with ebullient pop icon Madonna. The 'Material Girl' had tried to bed Jackson after accompanying him to the 1991 Oscars. However, she failed to do, according to Mark Lester, Michael's best friend and fellow child star.
In a conversation with Daily Mail, Lester said, "When he entered the room, she was in bed, threw the covers off and was completely naked. He took one look at her and screamed and ran away — not something I’d have done."
Nonetheless, the 'Billie Jean' hitmaker's first wife Lisa Marie maintained she shared a bed with him.
His second wife, Debbie Rowe, said she was treated like a "vessel" who was artificially inseminated to produce Michael's children. The former nurse said she became involved with Jackson while working for renowned skin specialist Dr. Arnold Klein at his dermatology clinic. According to her, a donor sperm was used instead of Michael's own seed.
"I went to the 'office', which is what we called the medical clinic," Rowe told a British newspaper in 2009. "They impregnated me. It's just like I impregnate my mares for breeding. It was very technical. Just like I stick the sperm up my horse, this is what they did to me. I was his thoroughbred."
