Michael Jordan may be an icon and a legend in the eyes of many, but multiple sources say he's not the nicest guy on earth.

Rapper Chamillionaire shared an encounter he had with the billionaire at an auction of Jordan's basketball memorabilia years ago.

Chamillionaire grew up in Washington, DC, and like most boys his age in the 1980s and '90s, he idolized the Chicago Bulls legend.

According to Sportscasting.com, when he saw Jordan taking photos with others at an auction event, he approached the superstar and asked for a picture.

The 41-year-old rapper had just dropped $7,000 on a Jordan jersey for charity, but Jordan cursed Chamillionaire out and told him he wouldn't pose for a photo unless he ponied up more cash.

According to the rapper, Jordan told him, "You pay $15,000 right now for a jersey from me and I'll take a picture with you."

Disheartened by the encounter, Chamillionaire walked away without paying the $15,000.
