    Prince once attempted to run over Michael Jackson with a car after a rare humiliation on stage!

    It is no secret that Prince and Michael Jackson were both huge musical legends and both gone way before their time. It is also no secret that the music legends didn’t really see eye-to-eye and would beef on several occasions.

    During a recent sit down with GQ, luminary producer, Quincy Jones left no stone unturned as he dished on industry stories worth more than gold.

    In 1983, Jackson and Prince got onstage at a James Brown gig in Los Angeles. Jackson went up first and sang a few phrases. Then Prince went onstage and nearly tumbled into the audience. It was an embarrassing night for the Purple One.

    According to Jones, Jackson later told him Prince allegedly tried to run him over with his limousine after the gig.

    “He waited in the limousine to try and run over him and La Toya and his mother.… He knew. Michael knows shit. He was there. He said that was his intention,” said Jones.

    “It was just very obvious what the hell happened — [Prince] made a damn fool out of himself,” he continued. “Michael went up there, in 40 seconds, sang ‘I love you, I love you.’ Then they went up-tempo and he did a little dance and did the moonwalk and whispered in [James Brown’s] ear, ‘Call Prince up — I dare him to follow me.'”

    The music exec goes on further to allude that their rivalry only escalated from there, especially after he suggested that the two work on a duet for the title track of Bad. “So we invited [Prince] over to Michael’s house at Hayvenhurst. He came in and he had an overcoat on, and he had a big white box labeled ‘Camille.’ He called Michael ‘Camille,'” Quincy recalled.

    “The box had all kinds of stuff — some cuff links with Tootsie Rolls on them. Michael was scared to death — he thought there was some voodoo in there. I wanted to take it, because I knew Michael was gonna throw it away.”
