(AP)File photo dated 05/03/2009 of Michael Jackson, who has died after suffering a suspected heart attack. Paramedics were called to the 50-year-old singer's Holmby Hills home in Los Angeles and he was taken to the UCLA medical centre.

New reports have suggested that Michael Jackson ordered his brother to be shot. While some have questioned the reliability of the source, Randy Jackson himself did not offer a straight answer concerning the incident.

Matt Fiddes has become a recent Internet sensation after publicly declaring that he is the true father to Blanket, one of Michael Jackson's presumed sons. In a new report, the same bodyguard has also revealed that Jackson was a "mess" at the end of his life due to drugs, and even went as far as ordering his brother to be killed.

"By 2005 Michael had surrounded himself with Nation of Islam bodyguards and became paranoid to the point that he would bar family from coming into his home," Fiddes told The Sun. "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."

Fiddes also claimed that the pop star was bitterly envious of Madonna, naming a pet snake after her, and owned a voodoo doll of Steven Spielberg. When suggesting that his brother be shot, Fiddes admitted that he didn't think Jackson meant to kill him.

"Michael shouted at the bodyguards that he wanted Randy shot, and Randy really feared he'd be killed," Fiddes told The Sun. "I don't think Michael ever intended to kill him and told the guards to shoot him in the leg."

Apparently Randy became fearful and threatened to call the press to inform them of the situation.

"He told the bodyguards, 'If you shoot me the whole world will know about it,'" Fiddes commented.

While none of Fiddes statements have been confirmed, Randy Jackson's spokesman told TMZ that the rumors couldn't be "further from the truth" suggesting that the story was "absurd."
