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.

THEY should take FINGER PRINTS of whatever device he was plugged into that fatal moment to see who last touched the intraveinus drip or medication bottle.

You know Sony was glad when he died. The dude pretty much owned that record company with that music he bought over the years.

Perhaps Murray could sue MJ's estate for MJ providing fraudulent and incomplete medical history, thereby jeopardizing treatment protocol and patient safety, and physician's license.

Michael Jackson did not study medicine. He did not know any better. Dr. Murray on the other hand is a doctor and he should have known better than to pump Michael's body full of propofol. Dr. Murray should lose his license for killing Michael Jackson.

MJ was not murdered here anyway. His deah was a accident. But it was lead to by a doctor who should have known better to do what MJ wanted in the first place. So you have a doctor, malpractice suit, but not pure murder.... A stupid doctor allowing money from a rich idot do the talking.

Regardless of Michael Jackson's "manipulative, and conniving, and doctor hunting" or how much money was offered, "Dr" Murray should have know better ethically, morally and professionally. He allowed his greed to get in the way of his common sense

Michael Jackson DID NOT commit suicide and anyone who thinks he did needs a mental evaluation... STAT!

Ohh... c'mon I see some ignorant people here claiming Michael was a drug addict... I say to these people ... Really? ... Had they read his autopsy?? .. his autopsy SHOWED that he was a healthy man, his organs were fine. and he DID NOT take drugs in an usually way, actually no more than what he needed it...

He was MURDERED PERIOD. And Michael was right ... they killed him for his Sony catalogue , he not only said this to his mother , also to his former wife Lisa Marie...

Dr. Murray is not the only involved in his dead.. im sure that there are many people who is involved , and ITS NOT fair that these people are out there walking free , if they are going to judge , then judge them all!

JUSTICE WILL PREVAIL! :)

Rest in peace Michael ... thank god people cant hurt you anymore :)

Human Nature,

Maybe Dr. Death doesn't have the tape. Maybe the people who were in that room while Dr. Death was on the phone have it.

In 2005, Michael Jackson also was accused. And Michael Jackson was innocent, was acquitted.
It will be also Dr Murray innocent ?
I do not belive that Dr Murray have KILLED Michael Jackson.
History is if repeating. In 2005 Michael Jackson, now in 2011 Dr Murray.
When we will know all the truth regarding Michael Jackson ?
All this history is a break-head.
Me it seems that everything is related with what happened with Michael Jackson in 2005.
I love you Michael Jackson.
God bless you Michael, where you will be.
