NEW YORK – No, Jacko. I didn't try to seduce you.
That's the word from Tatum O'Neal, who's come out swinging against Michael Jackson and his claim that she played vamp to lure him into bed for a sex romp.
"He has a very vivid imagination," the Oscar-winning actress told the NBC show Access Hollywood. "His comments about our friendship were inaccurate."
Last week, Jacko said in a controversial TV documentary that O'Neal, whom he described as his first girlfriend, invited him to her house and escorted him into her bedroom.
He said that when the child actress, only 12 years old at the time, began to unbutton his shirt and talked explicitly about sex, he flipped out and rejected her advances.
"She knew I was too shy for it. I was frightened. I was afraid," Jacko told interviewer Martin Bashir.
O'Neal is disputing Jacko's story, saying it's a figment of his imagination. "Michael did come over to my house when my father was home, but at 12 years old, there was no way I was capable of being as mature or as sophisticated as he claimed I was," she said.
Meanwhile, Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne, no strangers to weird lifestyles themselves, urged Wacko Jacko to get psychological help.
Ozzy joked that he wasn't surprised at Jacko's complaint that his father beat him as a child.
"If he'd been my kid, I would have whacked him, too -- because he's nuts," Ozzy said.
