MJ Bodyguard

Claims Singer Ordered

Hit on Randy Jackson

5/8/2012 11:28 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
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 ONLY reason the security guards pulled their guns is because randy rammed thru the gates and they thought there was a mad man coming to kill mj, when randy demanded to see mj the guards told him mj didn't want to see him and randy threatened (supposedly) to call the press. No hit was ever put on randy, such HOGWASH!

""The Sun"" - which should just follow its buddy tabloid trash ""News of the world"" - is notoriously one of the most famous tabloid trash!!!! Then we ALL know that Michael Jackson was NOT a drug addict and was UNable to do a thing like that OF COURSE!!!! The set of craps/dirty lies/ that this s.c.u.m.b.a.g. is saying are doing the round of the internet as the media as always are so eager to report the craps of a loser, money seeker, most probably also mentally ill, who met Michael Jackson ONCE in his miserable life and is willing to sell any disgusting lie to grab money!!!! This shady guy is disgusting as well as the tabloid trash which paid for his garbage!!!!!

First of all Randy is Michael's younger brother so thats the first issue that I have with this story and my main issue is he never told this story until now so he's a gold digger too just like teh rest of them. Get some better news and stop buying trash stories. Come on TMZ really????

Keep using MJ at any cost, let his kids see exactly how you've treated their dad over the years, I think they already have a good idea.

Perhaps TMZ would like to know that Matt Fiddes never once worked for MJ in any capacity and has so far not told the truth in anyway even regarding his own personal life. This man is pathological in his lies. So much so that the National Enquirer wouldn't even believe his "stories". He has spent no more than one hour combined with MJ as a member of Uri Geller's entourage. He is a liar, plain and simple.
