New skeletons keep coming out of the late-singer's closet, and the latest one alleges that Whitney Houston was saving all her love for noneother than a member of the Jackson 5! The iconic singer, who died at the age of 48 in February, reportedly had a year-long affair with Jermaine Jackson.

Yahoo! reports that the late-singer became close to Michael Jackson's brother when he started to work with her in the mid 1980s. Jermaine claimed they had strong feelings for each other in an autobiography.

A friend of Whitney also said, "The reason it ended was because Jermaine wouldn't leave his then-wife Hazel Gordy, and Whitney was angry." Jermaine, who finally split from Hazel in 1988, is believed to have been particularly upset by Whitney's recent death because it echoed that of his brother Michael.
