Michael Jackson was the man in the closet in the weeks leading up to his death in June - his heavyweight gay lover has come forward with a new sex scandal swirling around the late King of Pop.

Four years after a child molestation trial rocked Jackson to his very core, it now seems the pop superstar can't even rest in peace.

Jason Pfeiffer, an executive working for Jackson's dermatologist Arnold Klein, alleges he enjoyed a string of dates with the superstar during his final weeks - and they became more than close friends. The 35 year old, who calls Jackson his "soulmate", was devastated when the King of Pop passed away on 25 June (09) - because the odd couple was just embarking on a very strange romance.

Pfeiffer spent Christmas with the pop superstar, his kids and house guest Carrie Fisher, and insists he was ready and willing when Jacko asked 'You wanna be starting something' a few short months later. The businessman says he chatted to the pop star over the phone and they arranged a string of discreet meetings at Jackson's rented home in Beverly Hills.

Pfeiffer tells Woman's Day magazine, "I guess our first date, if you can call it that, was in my car. We went for a drive and were talking and having fun, but Michael had his minders who were 'nosey', as Michael put it. We had to make sure we were not caught, and although the date was short... we had a great time. I thought nobody else knew (about us) but (I) have since discovered that others did surmise the truth."

Jackson fought off gay rumors for years before his death, insisting to those who dared to ask him about his sexuality that he simply wasn't interested in intimacy - with anyone. That said, the Bad hitmaker was married twice and romantically linked to stars like Diana Ross, Brooke Shields and Jane Fonda.

He also fathered three children, although his biological links to the kids, Prince Michael, Paris and Prince Michael II, have often come into question - and they hit the headlines again as his mother, Katherine, fought for custody of the trio in the wake of her son's death.
