MJ Bodyguard

Claims Singer Ordered

Hit on Randy Jackson

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.

Good lawd! Why do you guys still focus on such a crap? Matt Fiddes is known to be a liar but you´ve nothing better to do than quoting "the sun", the worst tabloid ever. Do your homework first!

To begin with, Randy is the youngest Jackson brother. Get your facts straight before putting out erroneous information.

As greedy as those brothers were to get their hands on Michael's money, I can see this happening.

Why don't people report these crimes and murder conspiracies at the time they're committed by their drugged crazed employers? Oh, that last word explains it.

It is now official, TMZ can't get near the hits on any story unless they attach MJ's name to it. Fiddes was only around Michael Jackson for a brief time in 2002 and that is it. This story is absurd and it's a shame that TMZ is so hard up that they have to throw this in the mix just to have something to say!

If you're talking about MJ's brother Randy, why do you have a picture of Randy Jackson from American Idol?

I Was About To Say    

1. GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT, RANDY IS MICHAEL'S YOUNGER BROTHER!

2. You actually are going to post a story from "The Sun" and expect it to be true, hahahahahahaha!!!!!

3. This moneyseeking maggot is full of crap.

4. Fiddes was never "officially" MJs bodyguard and wants his 45mins of fame that's all.
