La Toya Jackson, Michael’s sister, says her brother was murdered, according to the UK publication News of the World.
"We don’t think just one person was involved in the murder. It was a conspiracy to get Michael’s money," she told the paper in an interview.
“I feel it was all about money,” she said. “Michael was worth well over a billion in music publishing assets and somebody killed him for that. He was worth more dead than alive.”
Furthermore La Toya said, "A couple of years ago Michael told me he was worried that people were out to get him. He said, ‘They’re gonna kill me for my publishing. They want my catalogues and they’re gonna kill me for these.’
She said she never wanted her brother do agree to the 50-date tour that he was rehearsing for at the time of his death.
She also said Michael was robbed of $2 million in jewelry and cash as he was dying.
La Toya told another UK paper, the Daily Mail, that “Less than a month ago, I said I thought Michael was going to die before the London shows because he was surrounded by people who didn’t have his best interests at heart.”
