Three former bodyguards of the late King of Pop, Michael Jackson, have come forward to share some secrets about the icon’s personal life.

In an exclusive interview with ABC’s Good Morning America, Mike Garcia, Bill Whitfield and Javon “BJ” Beard confirmed that Jackson was not a pedophile and did have an active dating life.

“Being a man…men know men…and we [were] around him long enough to know…he was a man,” Whitfield said.

Jackson had “desires of women like we do. He had lovers,” added Garcia.

The bodyguards claim that Jackson had at least two steady girlfriends and that on dates a discreet curtain would be lowered in the backseat of his cars so the King of Pop could get intimate in private.

“You couldn’t see in the back seat. They talked back there…they didn’t do nothing out of bounds…you can hear the kissing,” Whitfield said.

The three men also described the relationship Jackson had with his three children, calling him an “awesome” dad and they recounted the tragic final days of his life as well.
