(MONTREAL) - Pete Bennett granted what ended up being an extremely candid interview about his long-term relationship with the later entertainer Michael Jackson, the "King of Pop."

Michael Jackson walked a long, hard road to stardom with major pressure from his father and also his brothers, who pushed for the highest level and achieved it, but with a cost that would ultimately spell the end of the band, the "Jackson 5".

Pete promoted nothing less than the biggest names in contemporary music history, bands like the Beatles, The Who, The Rolling Stones and Bob Dylan just begin the long list.

In this interview Pete Bennett discusses the last time he saw Michael Jackson, which he remembered on a positive note.

He talks about the demons Michael Jackson fought and beat, and the toll it took on this man who couldn't even go to court without major security to protect him from raving fans.
