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.
