Michael Jackson was once rejected by U.S. newswoman Katie Couric after he asked her out on a date.

The broadcaster revealed all about her dating history during a candid chat with satellite radio shock jock Howard Stern on Wednesday (29May13) and revealed that the late King of Pop had had his spiritual adviser, Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, reach out to her to set up a romantic liaison.

She explains, "(Boteach) called me in my office... (He said), 'Katie, I have a question for you. Are you seeing anyone?' And I thought, 'This is so beyond creepy that Rabbi Shmuley is hitting on me'. I'm like, 'Rabbi Shmuley, you have, like, nine kids, what's going on here?' I said, 'Actually, I am (seeing someone),' because I had a boyfriend at the time.

"He said, 'Oh, that's a shame... Michael said to me, That's the kind of girl I would like to go out with...' and I said, 'Rabbi Shmuley, that's very flattering but I am seeing someone... Will you tell him how flattered I am and what a nice compliment that is?'"

Looking back, Couric wishes she had accepted the offer: "I do regret not having dinner with him. That would have been insane - breaking bread with Michael Jackson!"

Well, at least she did let him down gently and was considerate at that. But what's hard for me to read, is like so many others after the fact, she says she regrets not accepting his offer. I remember Oprah who always seem to have issues where MJ was concern, told MJ's mom she wished she had gotten to know him better and how she knows now the two of them probably could have been friends! It just amazes me that others couldn't realize what a kind hearted person Michael Jackson was, given the fact that he has always represented himself as such!
