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.

The Sun and the Daily Mirror have always been full of the lowest form of lying filth and it will never change, the Sun has taken the place of the now non-existant News of the World so they can spread more of their garbage, and with the likes of Fiddes about they'll always have some crap to print.
Why has Fiddes waited 3 years to spew this garbage, he held Michaels umbrella at a bloody football match for gods sake, where does he get this bull from. He's obviously broke and is looking for a payout and the sad thing is he is so twisted he honestly thinks people will believe him.
Tmz, i can't understand why you run these stories either, you are really scrapping the barrel now and taking the tabloid trash reports from The Sun which has never been a credible paper is the lowest you can go, and get your facts straight please, you embarress yourselves really.
Sadly it seems Michael is never going to be allowed to rest , he's receiving the same treatment in death that he did in life, hopefully all the people who have hurt him will get theirs eventually. I hope.

This is just STUPID !! More people trying to get their names into the spotlight when Michael is no longer around to defend himself. All that matters is Michaels family know Michael would NEVER do anything like this no matter what. He loved all his family and trusted them all (Exept Joe Probably). This is just so Stupid !!
