Meanwhile, Terry George, now a

From Page One allegations are true because of' what happened,
'Ie. If It hadn't been hat phone call I would er have believed It was possible. But when I first heard the news I immediately feit part of it all.
'I'd only dared tell a handful of my closest friends, because I thought nobody would believe me. At last now they know I was telling the truth about what Michael Jackson said to me;
'He Just came straight out with his questions. I Just giggled. I felt emba~ssed and awkward. I didn't really understand what he was talking about.
'I tried to steer him at! the subject and then he asked: "Do you believe I'm doing it now?"
1'1 said "Are you?" I felt icky. I was shocked. I ed to talk about something else but he brought it back into the
conversation. I was uncomfortable.
'The whole conversation lasted about 15 minutes, but he talked about this intimate sexual act for
five minutes or so. Then he said he'd phone me the next day.
'Looking back I could have hung up, but he was a superstar and I was flattered and I didn·t want him to stop ringing me.' '
The friendship with the Yorkshire 'boy started as part of Terry's hobby of collecting autographs and interviews with stars. Paul McCartney, ,Kim Wilde, Cilia BlUck, Boy George - ali share a 'place in his treasured photo album.
With a smail tape recorder, - a Christmas presents from his proud parents - Terry would wait at stage doors and inside hotel lobbies hoping to snatch a few words and
He had already captured omsr Sharif, bu this greatest scoop came in February 1979 when he coaxed an interview from Jackson, then 20, who was performing In Leeds. Terry eavesdropped iii the lobby of the Dragonara Hotel listening for details of room numbers from porters and cleaners. One let it slip that ~he Jackson
entOurage had taken over the eighth,f1oor.
Terry slipped into the lift and knocked on Jackson's door. The superstar answered and Invited him into his suite for an exclusive Interview.
The questions were Innocent fanzine trivia, but It was a magical 30 minutes for the young boy.
'He spoke to me like a friend,' recails Terry. 'He made me feel special and at the end of it he asked if we could keep in touch and we swapped telephone numbers and addresses.'
Several days later Terry answered the phone at his home in Leeds. Jackson was on the line calling from his London hotel.
'Hi, it's Michael ... is Terry there?'
Again the conversation was easy and casual as the superstar chatted about the tour. Jackson returned to the US, but more calls followed over the next three months. 'Sometimes he rang in the middle of the night,' says 'Terry. 'Once my tather answered. He boasts that he's spoken to Michael Jackson.' .
But then came the call in late spring 1979 that
shattered the innocence of the relationship.
And very soon
afterwards the cails began to peter out. They came to an abrupt end when Terry's parents phone was cut off because he had run up a £340 bill calling ,the US. His mother said: 'You've been phoning that Michael Jackson, haven't you?'
what ;a;; happening,
They claim fear of threats by Jackson's associates stopped them from talking until now.
The Qulndoys are seeking $500,000 (£330,000) in back pay from the superstar, who celebrates his 35th birthQay today.
Mr Quindoy, who Is preparing a book about the Singer, said: 'Michael Is such a big man. I was trying to protect him" but It lingered in my mind that it was a civic duty to tell the truth.'
The Initial scandal erupted when a dentist ln Ii. custody battle alleged his 13·year-old son had been sexually' abused at Jackson's home.
Jackson's staff claimed the man was trying to', extort

A Los A1jgeles TV station claimed last ,night tha~ while denying all allegations, Jackson's staff had offered the father £230,000 to keep quiet but he had refused
Meanwhile Detective Bill Dworin, of the Los Angeles police child exploItation unIt, saId bjl was hoping to speak to Jackson's elder sister LaToya, who has voiced concern about Michael's boy guests.
'We are aware she might be able to Identify other children who have spent time in.Michael Jackson's company,' he said.
Visitors to the ranch included Home Alone, star Macaulay Culkin, 12, and Australian Wade Robson, 10,' who both, insist they were not sexually assaulted.
Several former employees rallied to the star's defence. One said Quindoy and LaToya had misinterpreted simple kindness.

Brit DJ tells of shock call
By 'CHARLES YATES and DAVID WOODING,
A BRITISH disc jockey has told how Michael Jackson.maue an obscene phone call to him when he was a star-struck schoolboy.
Terry George was only 13 when he had a bizarre late-night conversation with the superstar - who described how he was fondling himself at
the other end of the line. .
Terry, now 28, is passing on details of the sex chat to Los Angeles police probing the Jackson child-abuse allegations. He first met the star when, as a schoolboy autograph hunter, he managed to interview him in his home city of Leeds.
They became pals and regularly had transatlantie chats - until in one call Jackson, then 20. asked him in graphic detail about sexual aetivities.
The millionaire told how, he was performing a sex act on himself as they spoke.
Terry said he believes the abuse aLlegations against Jackson - "because of what happened to me."
His revelations are being relayed to the management entourage of the singer, in Singapore on his world tour.
Yesterday 47.000 fans. including actress Liz Taylor, .turned a sell-out concert at Singapore's National Stadium into a huge 35th ,birthday party, for Jacko.
He was driven there in a van, peering from behind curtains. with a mask over his nose and mouth.
Terry went on: "If it hadn't been for that call I would never have believed the allegations were possible.
