In an honest and frank interview with a magazine as part of his career revival attempts, former child actor Mark Lester, who wants to become an adult actor, has admitted that Michael Jackson once spent a night sleeping on top of him.
This revelation is bound to shock fans of both stars, completely destroying the innocent images of one as a cute, cherubic youngster asking "for more", the other as a former cute, cherubic youngster who abandoned his rat friend Ben and took up instead with a monkey.
Questioned further as to when Michael Jackson spent the night on top of him, Mr Lester replied that it happened when he accompanied the star on a cruise in 2004.
He explained that the bookings were mixed up, and instead of the luxury 5-star family suite they were meant to occupy, they received twin cabins in the bowels of the ship. Mr Lester said:
"When we got to our cabins, we found they had bunk beds. I tossed a coin with Michael, he won and chose the top bunk, so he had to spend the entire night on top of me.
"It was fun though. He got up during the night to go for a wee, but fell off the bunk. Thankfully he fell on his face, and with it being made of plastic, he ended up bouncing back onto his bunk."
