Ex Jackson bodyguard makes 'shooting' claim against Michael

Michael Jackson's former bodyguard claims he ordered members of his inner circle to kill his younger brother Randy.

Matt Fiddes claims the pair were arguing for a while and felt pressure into regrouping his old band.

He told The Sun: "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."

The martial arts expert 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."

He continued: "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.'

"[Michael] was out of mind on drugs and luckily Randy was OK."

Last week Matt claimed the singer hated Madonna and poked holes in a Voodoo doll of Steven Spielberg after the performer became a Nazi sympathizer, although none of his accusations have been validated.
