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!!!

Sullivan is a poor excuse for an author. The book, Untouchable, is already quite well-known for its LIES. The Estate lawyers have even commented on the trash. A REAL biographer knows not to rehash lies. A real biographer knows how to do research. A REAL biographer knows how to check sources, to check for veracity of sources. None of this happened TMZ. You should know better than to reprint lies.

This is plain B/S. Michael Jackson owns SONY!!! He owns 50% of it. He is the boss!!! So he doesn't need to compete with anyone to use his own jet.

Three years after his death and ignorant tabloids are still lying on him.

"Sources close to Wahlberg have refuted the claims, telling that it wouldn't be necessary, as he had an aircraft of his own."

What I Think    

I have to laugh at all of the fans who, as teen girls, went to MJ's concerts and would have given anything to meet him. If only they had known that all they had to do was bring their little brothers along as bait.
