Family: Michael Jackson Feared Being Murdered

by at . Comments

Members of Michael Jackson's family say the singer predicted his own death shortly before he died, becoming increasingly fearful that he'd be murdered.

His incredibly valuable Sony catalog was behind that paranoia.

The comments from his family are in response to speculation that Dr. Conrad Murray will argue in court that Michael Jackson killed himself accidentally.

MJ in Fear

Murray stands accused of involuntary manslaughter for drugging MJ with Propofol. His defense may well argue that Jackson gave himself the final dose.

A rep for MJ's family says the Jacksons are "absolutely mortified" by any implication along those lines, insisting "Michael did NOT kill himself."

The rep adds, "What is incredibly ironic is that Michael told his mother shortly before he died that he thought someone was going to kill him."

"They were going to kill him for his catalog."

It's unclear why the death of Michael Jackson would make the catalog available to the assailant - it's property of his estate - but that's not the point.

The family is also concerned that video surveillance of Michael's last living moments - crucial evidence in Dr. Conrad Murray's trial - is still missing.

Murray's preliminary hearing began yesterday. The prosecution will outline its case and a judge will decide if there's enough to warrant a jury trial.

There is NO WAY this is not going to trial.

The defense knows it too, and won't even put up a fight in this round. Yesterday, This Is It producer Kenny Ortega took the stand against Murray.

Drug addicts are always paranoid. Plus, MJ wanted to die. He knew he could not mime through an entire show but he needed money. Plus, Pubic hair was sprouting on dear Prince. There really wasn't much to live for.

Even if he did kill himself. The doctor is not suppose to let him do it. And the doctor wasn't suppose to let Michael use that drug by himself.

Michael was known for dedicating his life to his children, his fans and his music. The thing I just don't understand is that if Dr. Murray says Michael killed himself, why would he kill himself and leave his kids behind? Why would he kill himself and leave his loving fans that made him so famously known as the King of Pop? Why kill himself before the last tour he would ever do, just for his fans? All I'm saying is that Dr. Murray needs to quit making up these lies to cover up the truth and quit making himself look like a damn idiot and get his story straight....man up Dr. Murray!

I am sorry but Michael would never kill himself. If you have watched the movie and read about his life story, like I have; you realize that he love animals and children and everyone else around him. I beleive he wouldn't even hurt a fly, let alone his ownself. Its a tragic thing that has happen and Dr. Murray is to blame. I agree with Kenya, Dr.Murray should of never started giveing Michael drugs; no matter how bad Michael wanted them. He is a Doctor, and Doctor's are supposed to know what is right and what is wrong! I grew up watch Michael's legacy grow. He will be sadly missed! The Good Do Die Young!( no matter what he did, I dont believe it)!
