Mark Wahlberg rejects new book’s 9/11 story


A new book about Michael Jackson claims that the King of Pop and Mark Wahlberg got into a verbal confrontation over the use of a private jet in the days after 9/11. In “Untouchable: The Strange Life and Tragic Death of Michael Jackson,” author Randall Sullivan writes that Jackson and Wahlberg both approached Sony about flying on one of their jets back to LA. Problem is, the story isn’t true, according to Wahlberg. The Dorchester-bred actor told the story is fiction.
