Scott Thorson was Liberace's live-in lover for five years. After being showered with expensive gifts he turned around and filed a palimony suit against Lee for $113 million, which Scott won.
Scott said he was Liberace's bodyguard, confidant and chauffeur, and had participated in a homosexual relationship with him. Unfortunately, even up to this point, Liberace continued to deny being homosexual.
Scott later wrote the book Behind the Candelabra, about his life with Liberace.
Scott also made claims to American tabloid the National Enquirer, alleging he had sex with pop star Michael Jackson. Their sex took place in 1979, shortly after they were introduced by Liberace in Las Vegas, Nevada. Scott recalls,
"The day Michael and I met we hit it off. We spent days running around Las Vegas together. Michael wanted to spend all his free time with me. We are only five months apart [both 20 y.o.] in age so we had a lot in common with each other."
Scott claims his relationship with Jackson intensified in London in the early 80s, where Liberace was performing and Jackson was working on a selection of songs with Paul Scott continues,
"We were two young men extremely attracted to each other. You could've cut the sexual tension with a knife. I was standing only a few feet away from Michael when he motioned with his hand to come over to him and join him in bed. I climbed onto the bed. Our lovemaking session lasted about an hour."
Scott, who claims he had sex with Jackson again for the final time a day later at Lord Montague's house in the outskirts of London, says he visited the singer on two occasions years later at a hotel where he alleges Jackson was in possession of what looked like gay porn magazines featuring young boys.
While Scott's romance with Liberace later fizzled, his friendship with Jackson also deteriorated because of the singer's alleged porn habit. Scott later fell into a spiral of drug abuse and is now battling hepatitis C.
National Enquirer says it put Scott through a lie detector test over the claims - which he passed in the presence of an expert. And now Scott declares he's willing to testify about his alleged affair in Jackson's current child molestation case. He adds,
"If the district attorney wants to talk to me about my experiences with Michael Jackson I would be more than happy to tell him the truth. And if Michael tries to deny what I've said about our homosexual acts in London, I challenge him to take a polygraph. I did."
