“The entourage of Michael Jackson wanted him to marry, have children. They were looking for someone. I was working in Spain, they invited me to see his show several times,” Thenews.com.pk quoted her as saying on TV Globo’s Sunday program ‘Fantastico’.

“Later they called me to invite me to Neverland (Jackson’s ranch). He knew everything about me, he read everything about me. I had dinner with him.

“And later came a proposal from his impresario asking me whether I would consider living with him because he wanted to have children, marry. They thought marriage with a person concerned about children in Latin America would be a good thing.

“For me (Michael Jackson) was an idol, but from idol to something else there is a difference. My answer, obviously, was no,” she said.
