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.
Chamillionaire has done well for himself since his days as a hand-to-mouth rap artist with hit songs "Ridin'" and "Turn It Up."
According to Celebrity Net Worth, Chamillionaire has an estimated net worth of $50 million. He founded his own record label in 2004, and his investments include a self-driving automation tech company which was sold to General Motors in 2016.
Kobe Bryant's widow Vanessa explained her side of the story after her mother, Sofia Laine, went to the news media and claimed Vanessa threw her out of her home.
In an interview on Univision that aired Monday, Sofia tearfully said she was destitute and living in empty apartment after she was kicked to the curb.

But Vanessa clapped back, saying she pays her mother's rent, and the reason the apartment looked empty is because Sofia moved the furniture out before her interview with David Valadez.
But Vanessa was not done yet. She also also went in on Kobe's mother, Pamela Bryant, in a series of posts on her Instagram Story.

Vanessa posted photos of Kobe's high school uniforms and throwback basketball shoes, saying Pamela sold the precious keepsakes at auction, and how sad it was that Kobe had to buy his stuff back.
"The fact that this was auctioned off and my husband had to buy this and more back is so sad. 2013. Glad we have it back. #Keepsakes," she captioned one of the images. She tagged another image #Hoarderwife.
Back in 2013 Kobe filed a lawsuit against Pamela, after she auctioned off his high school memorabilia to buy herself a fancy new mansion.
