According to Michael Jackson's security team, the singer had a secret girlfriend, lots of family troubles, and considered fellow recording artist Prince a fierce rival. This information comes from a new book written by the King of Pop’s security team of Bill Whitfield and Javon Beard. Both men spent the final 2 and a half years of Jackson’s life by his side.

They also claim that Michael was so paranoid, he would go around checking the locks on the doors of his house at 3 or 4 in the morning, even though he had a full security staff. Maybe he was afraid people were going to sneak in and write a tell all book about him. But I guess that would come after his time.

The book is currently for sale. Are you going to read it? What’s the best tell all book you’ve ever read?
