It’s no secret that Prince and Michael Jackson had a huge rivalry during their prime in the 1980’s, but a new revelation has been given by Prince’s bodyguard.

Michael Jackson was at his most popular with the Thriller album in the early to mid 80’s when he was breaking records with songs like “Billie Jean”, “Human Nature”, and “Wanna Be Starting Something”. Prince was also buzzing on the charts with songs such as “Purple Rain” and “When Doves Cry” which led to the two men being rivals for the top spot in the game.

The Jacksons would eventually reunite for the “Victory Tour” in 1984 and would end up being the last true tour Michael Jackson would participate in with his brothers. In a new revelation, Prince during that time period had attended one of the concert stops.

Hucky Austin who was the bodyguard for Prince, talks about how Prince trolled Michael Jackson and The Jacksons at one of the events below.
