According to the legend’s agent David Falk, several brands as well as clients have been turned down by the star since his rise to stardom in the mid-80's.

“I brought him a deal three years ago for $100 million. All he had to do was, other than giving his name and likeness, make a one two-hour appearance to announce the deal and he turned it down,” Falk said on WFAN Sports Radio and cited on Daily Mail.

“God bless him. He's been so successful; it gives him an opportunity to do whatever the hell he wants or not to do things he doesn't want.

“I really admire that. He's very, very selective in the things he wants to be involved in.”
