When Debbie Rowe got engaged to music producer Marc Schaffel earlier this month, few knew the man's connection to her late ex-husband Michael Jackson.
Formerly the official videographer at Jackson’s Neverland Ranch, he was named as a co-conspirator in Jackson’s 2004 child molestation indictment.
Their bond was such that despite Schaffel’s total lack of experience, Jackson handed him the reins to oversee his 9/11 single “What More Can I Give.”
As Schaffel’s relationship with Jackson came under the spotlight, however, gay porn director Paul Barresi took notice and revealed his own link to Schaffel.
Working under the name “Marc Frederics,” the man who would one day get engaged to Debbie Rowe directed dozens of gay porn videos in the 80s and 90s.
