The 58-year-old singer recently admitted she had kissed her friend – who died of acute Propofol intoxication in June 2009 – but a close pal of Michael explained it never developed into a relationship because he was furious with her.
Flo Anthony told the New York Daily News: ”He told me back then (in the early ’90s) that she’d spent the night at Neverland. He also told me that she’d told him if they were going to start dating, she wasn’t going to Disneyland, his favourite place.
”The reason their relationship didn’t stick was because she did an interview on TV saying she would like him to get a new look and she wanted to get him out of those buckles. He was livid that she criticised him on TV.’
”I’m not sure, but I don’t think he ever spoke to her again. He was mad as hell!”
Madonna recently admitted she ”shared a ”full French kiss” with her friend but he needed alcohol to help him relax before he would be a ”willing accomplice” in the romance department.
Asked by James Corden during his ‘Carpool Karaoke’ segment on ‘The Late Late Show’ if she and Michael had ever kissed, she admitted: ”Of course. I mean, baby, I’ve been around! ”Yeah, tongue-in-mouth kissing. I haven’t had the chance to talk about it, no one ever asks me.”
When then asked who had made the first move, the ‘Like a Virgin’ singer admitted: ”Well, I did, if you wanna know the truth. Cause he was a little bit shy. However, he was a willing accomplice. I did get him to loosen up with a glass of Chardonnay. And it did. It worked wonders.”
Madonna – who has children Lourdes, 20, Rocco, 16, David, 11, and Mercy, 10 – didn’t say when she and Michael kissed, but they did attend the Academy Awards together in 1991.
