Michael Jackson 'wanted brother dead'

Los Angeles - Michael Jackson's former bodyguard Matt Fiddes claims he ordered members of his inner circle to kill his younger brother Randy.

Fiddes claims the pair were arguing for a while and felt pressure into regrouping his old band.

He told The Sun: "Michael was caught in a war with his brothers for years. They were desperate to sign him up to a $500m deal for a Jackson 5 reunion tour."

The martial arts expert explained: "Things reached a head when Randy was trying to force his way past the bodyguards to speak to him in one of his rented homes. Michael ordered him to be shot."

'Was so scared'

He continued: "Randy was so scared he got on the phone and threatened to call the press.

"Randy told the bodyguards, 'If you shoot me the whole world will know about it.'

"(Michael) was out of his mind on drugs and luckily Randy was OK," added the bodyguard.

Previously Fiddes claimed the singer hated Madonna and poked holes in a voodoo doll of Steven Spielberg, although none of his accusations have been validated.
