Nearly three years after Michael Jackson's death, the King of Pop still can't seem to escape sordid headlines. His former bodyguard, Matt Fiddes, gave an exclusive interview to The Sun over the weekend in which he claimed that in a drug-fueled rage, Jackson ordered his brother Randy to be killed by the Nation of Islam bodyguards that were protecting him. Jackson had been in a battle with his famous brothers for years as they tried to get him to sign a $500 million deal for a Jackson Five reunion tour. Fiddes told the British tabloid that the already-reclusive singer had become paranoid to the point that he would bar family members from entering his home. “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," said Fiddes. "Michael ordered him to be shot dead. He was out of his mind on drugs and luckily Randy was okay." Fiddes also revealed several other juicy details, including Jackson's alleged brief romance with Whitney Houston and an obsession with Pamela Anderson that apparently led to an attempt to bed her in the months before his death.
