SENSATIONAL photos of Michael Jackson romping with naked women are being offered for sale by one of his former aides.
A former aide of Michael’s had swiped the pictures out of a security camera at Michael’s luxury ranch, which showed him fondling a topless woman in a jacuzzi.
The former aide was selling the pictures along with a home video of Michael and Macaulay Culkin, and another set of pictures showing Michael doing a “bizarre” dance with the bones of the elephant man. The former aide was once one of Michael’s closest friends.
Others are said to feature the star, who has never had a serious girlfriend, in a clinch with a nude woman – apparently unaware he is being filmed.
The News of the World this week turned down an offer to buy the snaps for £60,000.
The snaps are thought to have been copied from film swiped out security cameras at the eccentric star’s 2,700 – acre California ranch. Ironically the cameras are there to protect Jackson, who is obsessive about privacy.
Jackson tried to buy the skeleton of hideously deformed John Merrick – played by John Hurt in the film the Elephant Man – for £1 million from a London hospital. But his offer was rebuffed and the star had a replica built.
The elephant man bones replica/dance they seem to be talking about is from the set of Leave Me Alone

Former employees of Michael Jackson are in possession of steamy photographs of the singer taken in the jacuzzi of his California ranch and are threatening to sell the pictures and shatter his squeaky clean image.
The photographs were taken from CCTV footage at Michael’s Neverland ranch and show the singer in the jacuzzi with two naked women. The one photograph shows the singer touching one of the women’s breasts.
A source said: “These cameras were installed for Michael’s protection and now look at what has happened.”
The guards are asking for $100 000 for the pics. Michael says he will sue if they are ever published. [/EXPAND] [EXPAND Flo Anthony Asked About These Photos, MJ Preservation Project Radio Show, 22nd Jan 2012 ]
Q: There was a tabloid story in the early 90s about a security guard that supposedly stole I guess, a photo of Mike in his hot tub with two women and I wondered if there was any truth to that story. And I also wanted to ask about Liza Minnelli, she came out a few months ago and saying that Mike had proposed to somebody in the early 90s and she turned him down…
Flo Anthony: I don’t remember a hot tub picture but he had a lot of hot tubs so that could be true. [/EXPAND] Michael Jackson Neverland jacuzzi photos
