Melbourne: Late pop star Michael Jackson’s siblings, Tito and Rebbie, have admitted that despite numerous attempts, they could not get to their brother in his last days, because of his aggressive staff.
Tito and Rebbie Jackson said they knew “something bad was going to happen” in the months before his death, but were barred from entering the singer’s property by his security team and were unable to reach Michael by phone before he died in June 2009 from a dose of the anaesthetic propofol.
“We had premonitions. I always felt that if nobody stepped in, somebody was going to do something bad,” the Daily Telegraph quoted sister Rebbie, 61, as saying.
“We tried many, many times - interventions and everything else.”
“We couldn’t get to him. He had a fortress around him.”
Tito, 58, asserted that he had even indulged in physical fights with his brother’s security team who blocked him from seeing the star.
“It was easier to get to Obama,” Tito said.
“We couldn’t get through at all,” he added.
