After Farrah Fawcett's death, Greg Lott identified himself as her former college boyfriend, claiming they had reconnected in 1998 and remained exclusive until she died in 2009.
Elizabeth Taylor
Colin Farrell and Elizabeth Taylor unconventionally crossed paths in a hospital and sent flowers to each other, kindling a friendship that stuck until her death in 2011.
Whitney Houston
In 2012, Michael Jackson's bodyguard revealed that in the 1990s, "Whitney [Houston] practically moved into Michael's ranch, and they had a fling like any other young couple."
As someone who was close to the couple, producer David Gest confirmed that Houston and Jackson reciprocated a desire to be married, but Jackson was too shy to pop the question.
Houston allegedly also had a year-long secret affair in the 1980s with Jackson's older brother, Jermaine Jackson, who was married at the time.
Carrie Fisher
"Carrie Fisher & Debbie Reynolds: Princess Leia & Unsinkable Tammy In Hell" revealed an affair between Carrie Fisher and Freddy Mercury in the 1970s after they met at a party.
The biography also claimed she explored an affair with David Bowie, though Fisher didn't confirm these relationships while she was alive.
However, she revealed that she and Harrison Ford were an item at one point. "It was Han and Leia during the week, and Carrie and Harrison during the weekend," she told People.
Amy Winehouse
Libertines frontman, Pete Doherty, came forward a year after Amy Winehouse's death in 2011, claiming, "Amy and I were lovers. I loved her then and, well, I still do today."
