MJ's Family -- Michael Predicted He'd Be Murdered

1/4/2011 3:32 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Jackson's family claims the singer predicted his own death shortly before he died -- telling TMZ, the King of Pop was paranoid he'd be murdered ... for his incredibly valuable Sony catalog.

The statement is in response to the story TMZ first broke in April -- that Dr. Murray's defense will argue MJ accidentally killed himself by self-injecting a lethal dose of Propofol.

But a rep for Michael's family tells us the Jacksons are "absolutely mortified" by the implication that MJ took his own life -- insisting, "Michael did NOT kill himself.

The rep adds, "What is incredibly ironic is that Michael told his mother shortly before he died that he thought someone was going to kill him ... and they were going to kill him for his catalog."

The family is also concerned that video surveillance of Michael's last living moments -- crucial evidence in Murray's trial -- is still missing.

conrad murray is not an ambulance chasing rat, he had michael's best interests in mind when he prescribed the medication that could slow down the heart rate of a beluga whale.

This makes no sense to me..why would they kill him for his catalogue since his children would be the one's to benefit?

Look this guy was not tied up and forced to take this drug. He wanted it and was rich and famous enough to get it.
It wasn't murder. It was a mistake.
Fault is on both sides. It should have never been going on in the first place.
He was a man not a God. Death proved that.

I'll bet he predicted it...I'll bet he predicted he's be murdered by one of his family members!!! That pack of leeches knows no boundaries. They are all s***. Poor guy had to die just to get away from all those leeches. They're STILL rolling around in the mud trying to get money out of him. Sick bunch. They should be charging his whole family for mental anguish. RIP Michael.

Of course it's missing!!
They never made an attempt to find out where the stupid security people hide it!!!
They should file a lawsuit against that damn Security Company!!
They should also file a lawsuit against the idiot who made the 911 call!!! Make him talk!!

Nothing is true!!!! Michael was NOT paranoid!!! Right after June 25, Katherine stated Michael was fine and she never noted something strange, and then she changed her version for their convenience: money!!!! They are the first which offend him!!! Katherine doesn't even want to call Murray 'murderer'!!!!
They are without shame!!!

If MJ knew....why didn't he sell the stupid catalog? Those kids needed a father and holding on to it was more important.
Sorry...but if he was murdered and knew before he would....he should have sold it. Here again, MJ was an adult and should have taken responsibility.
Dumb.....
