Liberace's ex alleges 6 year affair with King of PopScott Thorson (pictured above, right, in 1981), Liberace‘s lover whose memoir inspired recent HBO movie “Behind the Candelabra,” is claiming in a new interview that he also had a six-year affair with the late Michael Jackson.

Thorson tells The Sun, “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. Our relationship went on for six or seven years. Michael was very generous too. He treated me well.”

Thorson, 40 years Liberace’s junior, goes on to say that after he, Liberace and Jackson underwent plastic surgery, they all “healed together at the Liberace compound in Palm Springs.”

Apparently Thorson led quite the tumultuous life, finishing his story in the Sun with, “I’ve survived being shot five times, overdoses, and I’ve tried to commit suicide. But I’ve survived to tell my story.”
