Prince Michael Jackson has ended his relationship with Nikita Bess. Though the details of Prince's private life are closely guarded, it is believed that Prince and Nikita dated for over a year.
"Prince and Nikita had been arguing a lot lately and it just got to be too much," an insider tells Radar Online.
"Prince was starting to think that Nikita was only after him for his money, which is strange, because Nikita comes from money of her own."
Friends say Prince is paranoid that "gold diggers" will date him in hopes of gaining access to his late father's fortune.
Some have even gone so far as to suggest that Prince dated Kuwaiti princess Remi Alfalah and other fabulously wealthy young women, simply so that he wouldn't have to worry about being used.
Apparently, Prince wasn't the only one who had suspicions about Nikita Bess:
"His own family and guardians, Katherine and Joseph, were worried that he was in way over his head with this girl," says the source.
Family members have reportedly grown concerned about Prince's self-destructive behavior, and they're said to be terrified that he'll fall into the same habits that eventually claimed his father's life.
When Prince turns 18 in February, he'll receive a large chunk of his inheritance, and his aunts, uncles, and grandparents are said to be very concerned that he'll go wild with the money.
