Michael Jackson

Fought Mark Wahlberg

Over 9/11 Escape Jet

11/11/2012 5:53 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1111_michael-jackson-mark-wahlberg_getty_tmzWhoever is more famous, gets the private jet ... so said Sony, when Michael Jackson and Mark Wahlberg came to verbal blows over who could use the record label's ride to escape the aftermath of 9/11 -- and MJ won.

According to a new book called "Untouchable" by Randall Sullivan ... Michael, his kids and several relatives hightailed it to White Plains, NY a few days after the Twin Towers were hit in order to catch a private plane back to L.A.

But according to Sullivan, when M.J. arrived he was confronted by Mark Wahlberg and HIS entourage ... who were also waiting to use Sony's sweet ride.

Sullivan says the duo exchanged verbal blows over who got the plane ... until Sony honchos sent word down that M.J. (as the bigger celeb) was the victor.

Sullivan says Jackson eventually changed his mind at the last minute and wanted to get to L.A. by bus ... so his entourage flew without him. The book claims Jackson then changed his mind again and sent his mother and some relatives on the bus -- and Sony was forced to send a second plane.

The moral of the story is to work for Sony ... they had TWO planes!!!

So Mark thought his single life was more importance then the lives of little kids? Nice. Also sick that they both thought is was necessary to leave NY is such a hurry.

Does this fit in OK with the amazing story
"Elizabeth Taylor, Michael Jackson and Marlon Brando fled 9/11 in hire car"
Trio reportedly embarked on cross-country dash following terrorist attacks on New York in 2001, claims Taylor's former PA -

If Marky Mark stayed at the never never ranch as a kid i bet MJ would have shared the plane with Marky and the phunky bunch.
