In a new twist to the controversy surrounding Michael Jackson’s death, his sister La Toya has claimed that the ‘King of Pop’ was murdered for his 1 billion pound fortune.
Her claim comes just two days after the chief of Los Angeles police admitted they were investigating Jackson’s death as possible homicide.
La Toya said she and the family are convinced her brother’s apparent drugs overdose was “foul play” by a shadowy group out to get their hands on his 1 billion pounds fortune, the News of the World reported.
“Michael was murdered. And we don't think just one person was involved. Rather, it was a conspiracy of people. I feel it was all about money. Michael was worth well over a billion pounds in music... He was worth more dead than alive” La Toya said.
The 53-year-old claimed that the pop icon was fed a series of addictive drugs to keep him submissive and controlled.
