Michael wanted to marry Brooke!

Brooke Shields has revealed that she turned down numerous marriage proposals from Michael Jackson over the course of their friendship. At Michael’s memorial in LA, the actress struggled to keep back tears as she recalled how much fun they had as teenagers. Now, in the wake of Michael’s death, Brooke is revealing more about her relationship with the King of Pop. She tells, “There were times when he would ask me to marry him and I would say, ‘You have me for the rest of your life – you don’t need to marry me. I’m going to go on, do my own life, have my own marriage and my own kids, but you’ll always have me.’ I think it made him relax. He didn’t want to lose things that meant something to him.”
