Elton John has recalled an incident where he found Michael Jackson playing video games with the 11-year-old son of his housekeeper, after inviting him to a dinner party with his future husband David Furnish.

In the book, John explains that one of his guests was Jackson’s psychiatrist, and Jackson happened to be in England at the time.
