London, Feb 24 (ANI): A few days after David Gest had claimed in an interview that Whitney Houston was "in love" with Michael Jackson, the 'Black or White' singer's brother Jermaine has said that it was actually him who had a relationship with her.
Hollyscoop are reporting that Jermaine made the claims when he was at Eva Longoria's Pre-Oscar Flamenco Party at Beso in Hollywood.
Although he said the relationship was professional, he apparently also told Hollyscoop that the pair had 'a lot of fun together'.
Jermaine, who appeared in 'Celebrity Big Brother' in 2007, also said that he'd spoken to Houston's mum Cissy since the star's passing away.
He had apparently told them "we are all waiting", in reference to the results on the 'I Will Always Love You' singer's cause of death.
He also had some advise for her daughter Bobbi Kristina.
"Family. Love. Do the right thing, it's so important. Keep your family close," the Mirror quoted him as saying.
David Gest made the claims about Michael Jackson and Houston to 'The Sun' earlier this week.
"She really loved Michael and he adored her... Michael told me they once shared a passionate kiss, and she told me she was at one time very much in love with him," he said.
"I think she really wanted to marry him but, although he had a crush on her, he was too shy. Later, he confessed to me he should have made every move.
"If they had got together, I believe Whitney would not have done drugs or become a semi-recluse," he added. (ANI)
