Michael had a girlfriend?

one of Michael Jackson’s bodyguards has revealed that the singer had a secret long-term girlfriend at the time he died. Matt Fiddes says the late musical icon had a special someone, but that this woman was not a celebrity and their relationship was kept a mystery from most people. Matt, who became a close confidant of Michael after meeting him almost 10 years ago, said, “I’m not going to name who she is but I think the family were aware that there was someone special in his life who he loved and adored and had his ups and downs with.” other close friends have speculated that the singer was in relationship with the children’s nanny, Ugandan-born Grace Rwaramba, some saying the children even referred to her as ‘oum’. A minder, who asked not to be identified, says, “Grace was the closest person to Michael and the kids. She will be broken-hearted. The children were always their joint priority and, like any couple, they’d row if they disagreed about how they were being brought up.” For more news and rumours following Michael’s death, see the latest issue of ‘New Zealand Woman’s Weekly’.
