Whitney Houston and Jermaine Jackson in 1984

As we mourn the sudden and unexpected death of Whitney Houston, rumors have continued to run rampant about many aspects of the R&B legend’s life.

Usually, the stories concern her substance abuse, financial woes and her 15-year marriage to R&B “bad boy” Bobby Brown, however, this time around, we’re learning something new.

Whitney Houston once had an affair with Jermaine Jackson! Or at least that’s what UK tabloid The Sun is reporting.

While Jermaine was married to Hazel Gordy (Berry Gordy’s daughter), Whitney and the Jackson 5 singer had a year-long affair, the paper reports.

In fact, if you pay attention to the man in the video for her No. 1 hit single “Saving All My Love For You,” he looks like just like Jermaine.

And not only that, but the song itself is about a woman having a relationship with a married man, and she’s “saving all her love” for him until he becomes all hers.

The Sun claims Michael Jackson was among the few people who knew about the romance, and he didn’t approve of it.

The tabloid also claims that Whitney and Jermaine never lost touch after the affair ended, and she even comforted him after Michael Jackson’s death in 2009.

“Jermaine was shattered when Whitney was found dead in her hotel bathtub last month,” The Sun reports, adding that he was so overwhelmed with grief that he couldn’t even attend Houston’s funeral.
