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.

As much as I disliked MJ because he was a pedophile, I believe these accusations to be false without some proof being provided.

Pepsi began selling in China this past weekend, and already selling in U.S. on Ebay for $50.00 a can, as a collectible!

I don't believe this crap for a second. Michael Jackson was not that kind of person to put a hit on his own goodness! Some of these outlandish stories that has been told now and throughout Michael's life simply just blows my mind. Of course people can make up stories like this because Michael is no longer here with us to defend himself and that is just not fair. Do people even know or remember that he has children, who one day might see this, and how it would make them feel, even though this has been going on through out his life. And I haven't even mentioned how this would make his siblings feel. The nerve of some people! I mean people just can't let Michael rest even in death.

This guy is lying. At least he should get his information straight to make the lies sound more believable. Randy is Michael's younger brother. Also, if it was a reunion tour with all the brothers (which they have been since they left Motown), it wouldn't be a Jackson 5 tour. It would be the Jacksons tour.

Oh please, this damn guy needs to shut up. He never was MJ's bodyguard for goodness sake, he held a freaking umbrella for the 2 days MJ was in the UK. That's it! He knows nothing and he's talking sh!t. Just another lowlife looking for a quick buck.

What people are forgetting is that Randy used to break into the homes of other people, armed, all the ****ing time back in the day. Randy thinks he's a big hood, and he starts **** with people all the time. I'll never forget the time he had some kind of fight in a club or something with Tina Turner, and he ran his stupid mouth off talking about "I'm gonna break into Tina's." This was his back-asswards way of getting back at her, or some ****. Tina got wind of it and was like, "Let him come." Girl was waiting and shot him in the ****in' leg as soon as he got inside, and he couldn't say anything. Frankly, I think if it's true, Michael did what he had to do.

I am going to answer to your post respectfully, since you directed it to me.

Michael Jackson was not a pedophile! Even the people that were involved in that inner circle at the time were never able to prove anything. Not even a Grand Jury was able to find a cause to convict him.

It was proven in the autopsy that he did not have traces of recreational drugs in his system. He had a sleeping disorder, and he dealt with it in a desperate way!

According to his last doctor, he pissed in his bed. We all know he was not a very healthy man, only God knows what condition he had. At least he wore pampers!

There's not a person in Hollywood that has not had plastic surgery. To him, he didn't think he was disfiguring himsel, he thought his face was a work of art!

He was not gay! He said it himself in an interview, and again, no one has been able to give a conclusion on that rumor.

Michael Jackson was not weird. See, people talk and critize when they don't understand what the other person is doing. Michael was a normal human being, what we saw as Michael Jackson was a disguise, that was his image and his business. His artistic image was the result of a very well studied marketing product. Same way Kiss or Ozzy Osborne disguised themselves, but when they are "normal", you can be in the same room and you don't recognize them! You know what I mean? He was not weird, he had a unique image, but people critize him and call him weird because they don't understand what he was doing!

He did not abuse his pets. When he saw he couldn't keep up with their maintenance, he placed them in sanctuaries, and gave donations to those places to make sure they would be treated right.

It is rumored he gave Jesus juice, whatever that is, to some children. I was not there.

The police raided all his homes and his computers, turn it upside down, and couldn't find any evidence of child pornography!

I know that in the pictures of his bedroom was a doll on his bed. But it was not a baby boy doll, it was a female doll. It could have been Paris'. But if he actually slept with that doll, well, that doesn't threat anyone! There are a lot of grown up men who sleep, live and talk to life size dolls!

I'm not saying he was a saint or anything like that, he had a lot of flaws like all of us do, he was a person and a human being; But all these hate and accusations against Michael makes me think he was on this earth on a mission!

Matt Fiddes cannot even prove he is Blanket's biological father. How is he going to prove all those crazy stories he is dishing about Michael Jackson? He is an impostor and a fame whore.

There is a major problem wiith your story, and a specific statement of fact presented therein, which is in error. Randy is Michael's youngest brother, he is not Michael's older brother. With that being a major flaw in the story, one has to wonder about all of these claims in-total.
