"I don't like to be compared to Prince at all," he said in a recording. "I have proven myself since I was real little. It's not fair. He feels like I'm his opponent. I hope he changes because boy, he's gonna get hurt. He's the type that might commit suicide or something.

"He was so rude, one of rudest people I have ever met. Prince is very competitive. He has been very mean and nasty to my family," the late King of Pop had said. The King of Pop also slammed his own family in the tapes. Jackson died in 2009.
