Kim Kardashian's Nanny Shared Stories About Kim Dating Michael Jackson's Nephew

Kim Kardashian West Keeping Up with the Kardashians

There's very little inside Kim Kardashian West's life that's a secret at this point. The Keeping Up with the Kardashians figurehead is known to be as open and public as celebrities can be. Yet, there is one part of the celebrity's high-profile life that hasn't been explored: her relationship with T.J. Jackson, Michael Jackson's nephew. As it was confessed by Pam Behan, who was the Kardashians' nanny for five years, Kim K and T.J. were in a relationship together for over a year, and it was met with approval by the Kardashian family. At least, by Behan's admission. Apparently, there are a couple of things about Kim Kardashian West that we don't know...

I really liked T.J. He was kind of on the quiet, shy side, always very nice and polite. A good-looking kid, and as far as I could ever see, he treated Kim with great respect. . . . I know that she went to the Neverland Ranch with him a time or two.

In an interview with Reelz Channel's Scandal Made Me Famous (via People), Pam Behan dished on the young relationship shared between the future media icon and the nephew of the King of Pop. Kim Kardashian hasn't been afraid to talk about her visits to the Neverland Ranch, admitting to People previously that she celebrated her birthday there in 2009. But the reality TV fixture's relationship with T.J. Jackson has rarely been discussed beyond this recent sit-down interview with Pam Behan.

Indeed, while the couple were dating for quite a while (especially for young lovers), it evidently wasn't meant to be. Kim Kardashian is, of course, married to Kanye West now, and they share three children together: North West (5), Saint West (2) and little baby Chicago West (6 months). But, Pam Behan was certain at one point that Kim Kardashian would, in fact, be a permanent part of the Jackson family. When pressed to say if she thought Kim's relationship with T.J. Jackson was meant to last, this is what the nanny said:

I honestly thought that they'd get married. I really did.

Alas, that wasn't in the cards, it seems. There's no clear indication why Kim Kardashian West and T.J. Jackson separated, but they have since moved on. All that's left between them is Pam Bohen's story. Meanwhile, Kim Kardashian West is never far from the news -- due to scandals of the present as well as the past. Recently, for instance, she put aside her feud with Tristan Thompson after he cheated on his then-pregnant girlfriend, Khloe Kardashian. They unblocked each other from their social media accounts, and they are seemingly putting the past behind them.

Pam Behan, it seems, hasn't quite moved on, and now she's walked away with a story or two to tell. If you wish to hear about their relationship, you can check out the new episode of Scandal Made Me Famous on Saturday, July 21st, when it airs on the Reelz Channel at 9 PM.
