Michael Jackson’s bodyguards insist he “had desires of women.” Mike Garcia, Bill Whitfield and Javon ‘BJ’ Beard spoke to ABC’s Good Morning America about the two years they worked for the late ‘King of Pop’. They revealed he had at least two girlfriends in the time they looked after him, and furiously refuted claims his relationship with children was unnatural. “Being a man, men know men, and we were around him long enough to know he was a man,” Bill said. Mike added: “He had desires of women like we do. He had lovers. In the cars that we had, we had a curtain that covered the back seat. You couldn’t see in the back seat. They talked back there, they didn’t do nothing out of bounds. You can hear the kissing.” All three men emphatically replied, “No,” when asked if Michael was a pedophile. They called the pop icon an “awesome” father to his three children, revealing he did all in his power to shield them from stories written about him. He instructed the bodyguards to walk ahead and turn over any magazines which had him on the front when they went out, even doing it himself if some were missed. “The kids were constantly saying, ‘I love you, Daddy.’ They were like four buddies,” Mike explained.
