RIO DE JANEIRO – Brazilian TV personality Xuxa said that Michael Jackson wanted to marry and have children with her. The revelation came during an interview with Rede Globo, which will air on Sunday, reported online media.
‘The Queen of the little people’ made the comments about the pop-superstar while reflecting on her relationships. She also commented on her courtship with ex-husband Pelé and her relationship with race-car driver Ayrton Senna.
“I spent six years with Pelé and, with Ayrton, I lived the great love of my life, but it went by so fast,” said the 49-year-old artist. [Senna died May 1, 1994, crashing his car during the San Marino Grand Prix in Italy].
Xuxa said she and Jackson became friends after she approached him to record videos with her during the ‘King of Pop’s’ visits to Brazil in the 1990s.
In the interview, which will air on the Sunday Rede Globo program ‘Fantastic’, Xuxa also reveals that she was sexually abused in childhood. Because of this, she said, she devotes time and money to support institutions that help children who go through this.
“I embraced this cause because I lived it and know what a child feels,” she says in the interview.
