NEW YORK:

Michael Jackson has been on a string of dates with Hollywood actress Pamela Anderson and the two have been secretly meeting in Malibu, according to a report.

“It was all arranged by their people in total secrecy, very cloak and dagger,” a source was quoted in the report on themirror.co.uk. “They were very chatty. Pamela was being her usual flirty self and Michael seemed to be responding. They are such a strange couple but they seemed to really hit it off.” According to the source, Michael plucked up the courage to ask Pamela out again, which she accepted. “They went for a coffee at Country Mart, Malibu and looked very comfortable with each other. They chatted about Michael turning 50, his new album, their kids. He seemed genuinely interested in Pam-ela,” the source said. — HNS
