Katherine: MJ Feared People 'Wanted Him Dead'

9/17/2010 8:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Katherine Jackson says her son, Michael Jackson, told her "several times" that he felt like people "wanted him dead" ... and she believes his paranoia was a product of the molestation allegations.

In an interview for Michael Jackson Secret Vault, Katherine said, "One of the reasons I think that [Michael] knew people didn't want him around any longer" was due to the "vicious rumors about him molesting children."

Katherine goes on to say that "mean, evil, vicious people didn't want him around for some reason" ... then adamantly states she believes those people were "greedy."

Michael feared people wanted him dead...that must be the reason he kept changing his face with plastic surgery. Maybe is was afraid of the Man in the Mirror.

This Is It    

I often go to findagrave.com and click on MJ's name just to remind myself that he really is dead. It makes me smile.

Michael's parents & siblings used him as their cash cow. There's no end to it. They are all so greedy. They should be ashamed of themselves. The last one in the family to get any respect, now her too. SHAME SHAME ON ALL THE JACKSONS

Lol... oh these comments just make me laugh. Anyone who thinks Michael Jackson was a drug addict has completely lost the will to think for themselves. Has the media really brainwashed us all that much? Come on. Do your homework. Why is Katherine still talking about this? Because it still needs to be talked about as it is the core reasoning behind what is really going on here.

DIANE,you are probably just a child because you don't know how the real world works.Those millions of people done their homework more than you think.It wasn't just the media and the tabloids (by the way the same media and tabloids Michael Jackson-and now his family-was useing to make profit and gain attention),it was just his behaviour that was suspicious.
INSURANCE COMPANY paid Chandler???How stupid do you think we are?So before MJ went on tour there was in the deal that the insurance company will pay in case of child molestation charges???Insurance companies don't work that way.On the last tour with those 50 shows,the insurance company didn't even secure MJ for all of his appearances and not for some kind of private child molestation charges.Insurance company or banks will not give you money that easy.That story was invented by MJ's PR machine and you obviously don't know anything about PR.

Let's not forget that Jordan came forward after his father killed himself and said that all the accusations were lies and that Michael never touched him. Classic case of extortion. Not to mention all the evidence that was falsified in the case...I do not understand why people insists on ignoring the facts and condemning an innocent man. There is way too much going on in the world right now for us to focus on something that never happened. Katherine is trying to clear Mike's name once and for all, so that people will be more receptive when the truth comes out. Please, open your minds and hearts.

Katherine let it go already. Michael bears most of the responsibility and Murray was criminillay greedy.

Stop with the blame game. AEG did not hire Murray, MJ wanted him. Michael NEEDED the money and you remained greedy, never offering to downsize and always taking Michael's support.

Michael was perhaps weak and shivering as a RESULT OF ALL THE PROPOFOL HE WAS TAKING!

This is an old interview, but Michael was not paranoid. The prosecution tried to plant evidence and even coerced the boy' statement in 2003. Jordan Chandler left the country out of fear they would force him if he didnt testify against Michael. The DA was tying to ruin him, and Sony was secretly trying to sell his catalog--Paranoia, are they kidding?

JLEIGH,Michael Jackson was a drug addict for a very long time,probably for more than 20 years,his family said that,his doctor-friend said that,LMP said that...We all have eyes to see that he was an addict,he was acting very strange in the Bashir do***entary(Blanket incident),you can see that he was under influence on the anniversary in 2001 with E.Taylor when the zip on his pants was open...
Jordan Chandler never came forward and you don't really know why his father killed himself.
Katherine is still talking about this to stay in the news,to make some money and because the family is mad at AEG because they used MJ for money,they knew that he was frail but that really wasn't that important to them.
