Michael Jackson's former PR guru BOB JONES was horrified by the preferential treatment the troubled singer gave his white employees, according to the publicist's new book.

Jones developed concerns about Jackson's prejudices during the 17 years he spent working as the King of Pop's right hand man, and has finally revealed his thoughts in new expose, MICHAEL JACKSON: THE MAN BEHIND THE MASK.

The shocking book alleges the THRILLER singer lavished gifts upon his workers, but did not extend the same generosity to the black people on his payroll.

Jones explains, "There were some Rolls Royce's that were given to attorneys. But I don't know of any gifts of that nature that were given to any blacks on the payroll."

But he admits Jackson once offered him a DVD player and a free nose job, which he declined: "It would have been given to me because he and the plastic surgeon were quite close. But my mother would have been appalled."
