Liberace's chauffeur and ex-boyfriend, Scott Thorson, is opening up once again about his alleged affair with Michael Jackson.

In an interview with The Sun about his life with Liberace -- a story that inspired Steven Soderbergh's recent HBO flick, "Behind the Candelabra" -- Thorson discussed his supposed six-year romance with Jackson.

“Liberace introduced me and Michael in the late 1970s. It was right around the time 'Thriller' was coming out and Michael and I became lovers," he said. “Our relationship went on for six or seven years. Michael was very generous too. He treated me well."

"Liberace and I had both undergone plastic surgery around the same time Michael underwent a nose job because he didn’t think he was handsome," he added. "We all healed together at the Liberace compound in Palm Springs.”

If Thorson is to be believed, his tryst with the "Billie Jean" singer was going on as the media linked Jackson with Brooke Shields.

This is not the first time the 54-year-old has discussed his reported fling with the late King of Pop.

The first time Thorson discussed his affair with Jackson was back in 2004 while speaking with the National Enquirer. At the time, he claimed they had their first sexual encounter in 1979, but the pop star's camp denied the allegations. In a 2012 interview with "Entertainment Tonight," Thorson said he and Jackson had a relationship that "would cross boundaries."

The former chauffeur made headlines in May when he was arrested on charges of burglary and identity theft for using stolen credit cards, according to TMZ. He was bailed out by Dennis Hof, owner of the Bunny Ranch brothel in Nevada, and is currently staying at the brothel.

Jackson's name was also plastered in the news after choreographer Wade Robson claimed last month that the singer molested him when he was a child in the 2000s. Robson is seeking to file a late creditor's claim against the star's estate. The Jackson family has dismissed the allegations as "outrageous and pathetic."
