Three of Michael Jackson's former bodyguards revealed on Good Morning America Tuesday that the late King of Pop could be extremely naïve about the world around him, and RadarOnline.com has the clip for you.
According to bodyguard Bill Whitfield, on one evening, the guards and Jackson were cruising the Vegas Strip when Jackson saw a prostitute walking the street, and asked him, “What’s that girl doing out so late at night?”
“I just had to be blunt; I told him, ‘That’s a prostitute, sir,’” Whitfield said. “The more he said, the more it made us realize how sheltered he was.”
The bodyguards also said the Thriller singer had an expensive passion for reading.
Jackson would purchase "thousands of dollars" of books at a time, so many that the guards would have to rent a U-haul truck to bring them home.
The guards said Jackson usually spent about "four or five thousand" on books and videos each time he went to the bookstore, and had a fondness for science fiction and historical literature.
"I think he was big on knowledge," Whitfield said, adding that Jackson’s three children -- Prince Michael, Paris and Blanket -- were also big readers who have amazing comprehension for their age.
