I want to have sex tonight no credit card needed
"We also had Tasers with a charge of 1.2 million volts, powerful enough to take down a man of 20st."And we had a cache of backup weapons, fully-automatic submachine guns, 12-gauge shotguns and machine pistols."Jackson "trusted no one", adds fellow bodyguard Bill Whitfield."There were times when he vented loudly, 'Why don't people just leave me alone?'"Tormented by "paranoia, stress and pain" the singer patrolled his home each night checking that doors and windows were locked.Flower would come a few days after Friend had left and Jackson would repeat his clandestine sex sessions.The bodyguards also emphasise that the singer was a devoted father to his children Prince, now 17, Paris, aged 16 and Blanket, 12."He was an awesome father," insists Whitfield."The kids would constantly tell him, 'I love you daddy.' He was everything to them.Driven from his Neverland estate in Santa Ynez, California, claiming "it's contaminated by evil" after the 2005 child molestation trial that ended in his acquittal, Jackson spent his final years moving around the US in seclusion finally settling in a Las Vegas mansion behind high walls."He hated it," says Whitfield, recalling Jackson's loathing that neighbours were too close while paparazzi swarmed at the gate and even hid in trees.
Yet the two men who knew Michael Jackson best in the final two years of his life - the bodyguards who protected him around the clock - reveal a sad, isolated and paranoid man who romanced mystery women, was in such financial difficulties that he could not pay staff and whose credit cards were often declined.
His family had to make appointments to visit him and if they turned up unannounced they would not be let in.
Even when his brothers staged an intervention to force Jackson to seek treatment for his painkiller addiction the star refused to let them into his house."He met them outside in the security trailer," recalls Whitfield.
They became his closest confidants until Jackson's death on June 25, 2009.
They insist that for all the paedophile allegations - which they dismiss - Jackson was attracted to women.
