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.

Roflmao, is this the same kind of rabid fans who say that Blanket was an exact copy of MJ when the pedo was young?

Believe it or not, I was looking at pictures of Michael Jackson when he was Blanket's age and Blanket, and they do have a very strong resemblance!

When this guy, Fiddes, first came out with that story, I thought he truly believed what he said. But if he had an ounce of love or concern for "his son", he would do things privately, and not create this kind of public commotion around the paternity of this child, and creating in him this identity doubt about himself and his father. He truly is a s***!

For those of us who have researched this Fiddles’ cretin, he is nothing but an absolute unadulterated liar.

This 'man' is absolutely broke, he as NO assets, he is a 'con man' who is desperate.
He thinks holding MJ's umbrella for a couple of days in 02 made him part of his entourage lol. Geller brought him on board..
He was never trained as a body guard and is completely bereft of any skill.. Other than 'trying' to kick someone’s ass via YouTube.

Well TMZ, you have finally proved to the world you can not live without a MJ story. Even a story that you scraped the bottom of the barrell for. The Sun. Who is the equalivent of the National Enquirer. Who wouldn't even take this Fiddes story because even they didn't believe him. So I see you put the disclaimer in your statement on the story. Doesn't matter. You still posted it, which means to everyone that you are desperate. Damn, the man has been gone almost 3 years and tabloid sites still need him to bring the revenue in.

Fiddes is a no good looser, who will open his mouth just one too many times and slip up just once too many and the lawsuits will begin. Notice how he only does it where the slander laws are more relaxed???? That ought to tell everyone something.
