Whitney Houston ‘kept calling Jermaine Jackson with marriage pleas’

According to a source, Jackson, who was then married to his second wife, Alejandra, considered Houston’s offer, a leading daily has reported.

Earlier this week, it was revealed that Jackson and Houston enjoyed a year-long affair in the early ‘80s while Jackson was married to his first wife. Another source who knew the late Tupac Shakur, said that the rap icon was also obsessed with the late singer. The source said that the rapper, who was murdered in 1996, asked her to track down Houston’s cell-phone number.

“He told me that if a brother with money like him stepped to her she would leave Bobby,” the source said.
