Michael Jackson Russell Crowe was plagued with prank calls from Michael Jackson after the superstar found out his phone number.

The Gladiator star has revealed the late King of Pop used to bombard him with nuisance calls, but he never fell for the singer's practical jokes.

He tells Britain's The Sun, "Michael Jackson used to tease me on the phone. He'd ring me and in a strong voice say, 'There is an emergency and you need to leave the building'. I'd ask, 'Who is this?' And he'd say, 'Do not worry Russell, just kidding, this is Michael'."

Jackson died in 2009.
