The TV star ex of Pele and Formula 1 legend Ayrton Senna
has claimed that Michael Jackson
offered to marry her and start
a family with her.
Model-turned-kids’ TV host Xuxa
— one of Brazil’s richest women — said Jacko made the proposition through an adviser.
The stunning blonde, Pele’s girlfriend for six years and Senna’s for two, said she was asked to wed Jackson after a visit to his Neverland ranch in California.
She said: “Michael Jackson’s advisers wanted him to get married and have children and they were looking for the right person.” Xuxa (49) said she was invited to a show, and afterwards she got calls asking her to speak to Michael. “I went there and had dinner with him and we watched films together in his cinema,” she said.
She then got a call from his manager, and added: “He said Michael wanted to have children and get married. They obviously thought we’d make a good couple.” She said she was “speechless”, but turned him down, saying: “I idolised him but only as a fan.”
