Mark Wahlberg denies fighting with Michael Jackson over 9/11 getaway plane
Mark Wahlberg has denied fighting with Michael Jackson, over would get to use Sony's escape aircraft to get away from the chaos following the tragic event of September 11, 2001.
According to new tell-all book, Untouchable by Randall Sullivan, the two stars argued when they both showed up in White Plains, a few days after the aeroplanes hit the Twin Towers, the Daily Mail reported.
The pop legend, along with his children and several relatives arrived in the area to get a ride back to Los Angeles.
But, Sullivan writes that he was confronted by Wahlberg and his entourage who were also waiting to use the transportation.
The stars allegedly came to verbal blows over who got the plane until Sony bosses announced that Jackson was welcome to the jet because he was the bigger celebrity.
The author claimed that Jackson eventually changed his mind at the last minute and wanted to get to California by bus, resulting in his entourage flying without him.
The book claims Jackson then changed his mind again and sent his mother and some loved ones on the bus, forcing a second plane to be sent from the company.
Sources close to Wahlberg have refuted the claims, telling TMZ.com that it wouldn't be necessary, as he had an aircraft of his own.
The new biography also alleges how the Jackson family used the King of Pop for his money.
