Bestselling author Edward Klein's bombshell claim that Michelle Obama and top White House adviser Valerie Jarrett have become so close they may live together in Europe after President Barack Obama finishes his second term has sent the rumor mill into overdrive.

But Klein, who made the startling assertion on his website, told Newsmax TV on Friday that the relationship between the high-powered women definitely does not involve physical intimacy.

"There's nothing sexual. A lot of people ask me that question. No, there's nothing sexual at all," Klein — author of "Blood Feud: The Clintons vs. the Obamas" — said in an interview with "The Steve Malzberg Show."

"These two are really connected at the hip, Valerie and Michelle. They're best friends, [an] older sister, younger sister kind of thing.

"Every night they go up to the family quarters of the White House [and] Valerie Jarrett joins the family. Afterwards, she stays up there with Michelle, they open a bottle of Chardonnay, and they talk about their future."

Klein bared the jaw-dropping claim this week on his blog "Ed Klein Confidential," writing that the first lady's post-White House plans "don’t include her husband" … and the future she envisions includes one other person — her best friend and confidant, Valerie Jarrett.

Klein said a source close to Jarrett, who is divorced and has a grown daughter, revealed to him that Michelle and Valerie "discuss their possibilities all the time and Michelle talks about their future as if they are one and the same."

The source added Michelle plans to pen a memoir, after which "she and Valerie want to travel abroad — maybe make their base for a while in Spain or France.

"Valerie sees Michelle and herself sitting on the boards of a handful of corporations, giving speeches for big bucks, writing books, and living large. Michelle has had the time of her life in the White House, and she doesn’t want to step down from that luxurious Air Force One lifestyle."

Speaking to Steve Malzberg, Klein said he believes that such a move does not mean Michelle and Barack Obama are having marriage problems, but rather that Michelle wants to spread her wings after eight years of supporting her husband's presidency.

"I wouldn't call it in trouble. I would say that under the pressure of being in the White House, instead of their actually coming closer together, they've drifted further apart," he said.

"In Valerie's mind, Michelle should carve out a separate future for herself from Barack because she has, in a sense, sort of sacrificed her own career for his up to now.

"So what she's planning to do is do a lot of travel, write a book, maybe live for a little while in Spain.... They're talking about doing this together."

Klein's new book, "Unlikeable: The Problem with Hillary," will be published next month.
