MJ Bodyguard

Claims Singer Ordered

Hit on Randy Jackson

breaking news

Michael Jackson's former bodyguard claims the singer was a paranoid maniac ... who ordered members of his inner circle to kill his younger brother Randy ... this according to The Sun.

In the interview with The Sun ... ex-bodyguard Matt Fiddes claims, "Michael was caught in a war with his brothers for years, They were desperate to sign him up to a $500 million deal for a Jackson 5 reunion tour."

Fiddes -- a martial arts expert who worked with MJ in the UK and in the US -- 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."

Of course, no one shot Randy ... but Fiddes says, "Randy was so scared he got on the phone and threatened to call the Press. He told the bodyguards, 'If you shoot me the whole world will know about it.'"

Fiddes continued, "[Michael] was out of mind on drugs and luckily Randy was OK."

Fiddes has been dishing MJ dirt to The Sun for a while now ... just last week he claimed the singer despised Madonna and poked holes in a Voodoo doll of Steven Spielberg after MJ became a Nazi sympathizer.

None of Fiddes' accusations have been corroborated.

We reached out to the MJ Estate for comment -- so far, no word back.

Nonsense. Fiddes has read and listened to different interviews (Schmuley, bodyguards) and read tabloids after MJ's death, put the worst possible spin on the content, added totally made-up situations from his own imagination, and is now spreading the dirt. Despicable person.

Nazi sympathizer? And he's not talking about Mel Gibson or Jesse James...

So what we see in his "History" clip is the statue of MJ as the biggest dictator ever, even bigger than Schicklgruber?

Never thought about that way,...WTF!

As for being Blankets bio-dad, Blanket has different shape of face, eyes,eye-brows, nose AND ears from Fiddes. And that's not including Fiddes' un-fatherly behaviour, going public with his claim.

MJ did not admire Hitler, he just stated, like every historian, that Hitler could enthuse crowds with his speeches. You don't have to agree with what the monster SAID to know this is a fact.

Randy once tried to make his way through the gates and a guard pulled a gun on him. Fiddes wasn't present. MJ was probably just scared and upset. Randy has a temper, and it's true Tina Turner shot him (he admitted it in a tweet), but let's not forget he got MJ the best attorney ever for the 2005 trial, Meserau, who called prosecutor Sneddon's bluff and tore his sloppy "evidence" into smithereens.

TMZ - the day you finally write a nice piece honoring MJ's music, talent and gentleness and throw out the hateful trolls, I'll buy champagne. For me, for having endured reading all the crap here, and to toast Michael.

That speaks volumes doesn't it?

And who the hell is fiddes anyway? He claims to have been Michael's bodyguard exactly when was that?

What does he think he will gain by saying so many fairytales to a tabloid?

Michael would NEVER SAY SUCH A THING, he LOVED his parents and siblings.

Michael Jackson    

He just wants to make quick money using slander and maligning.
Tell him to bring in the evidence and that will show the world who and what he really is.
Michael would never harm his family, he loves them but stayed away from them for a specific purpose. Not for independence but for creativity as he loved Nature and things that are close Planet Earth.

The only contact MJ had with Matt Fiddes was holding his umbrella for 2 days in Europe. A few years later MJ didn't even know who he was. The incident Matt is referring to is when MJ lived in Vegas in 2007. Randy went to see MJ but MJ did not want to see him. Randy couldn't accept that and gave the bodyguards a hard time. MJ's bodyguards don't carry guns. Matt has been on a rampage the past 3 weeks telling The Sun (tabloid) numerous lies about MJ. The Sun pays for gossip so Matt must be desperate for money. The Sun also lies in their stories all the time.
