Jason Pfeiffer, the former office manager for Michael Jackson's friend Dr. Arnie Klein, is standing by his story that he had a gay affair with the singer.
Pfeiffer says Klein is trying to sabotage his credibility because Klein is afraid Jason will incriminate him during the upcomng Dr. Conrad Murray trial.
Jason tells TMZ he's been honest all along about having a sexual relationship with the late King of Pop and is certainly standing by his story now.
Jason Pfeiffer insists, "The story is true. We had a relationship with sexual aspects, but I'm not going to make it into some grand love affair."
When the story broke last year, Klein backed up Jason's account, even going so far as to call Pfeiffer "the love of [Michael Jackson's] life."
Klein came under attack from Elizabeth Taylor shortly after, but reiterated that the story was true, saying "Michael chose who he loved."But Klein changed his story Friday, writing on Facebook that reports of "Jason being [Michael's] lover are ridiculous. That story was made up ... "
Why pull the 180 now?
Jason claims Klein has a secret agenda to publicly discredit him, in case Jason's possible testimony could paint Klein in an unflattering light.
Pfeiffer adds that the doctor's reversal is even more surprising as Klein "was the one that pushed for me to release the story in the first place."
