Michael Jackson's sister La Toya Jackson has revealed she believes the late singer was killed for his money in a conspiracy.

She also told the News Of The World that she knew the identity of the people she believes are responsible.

"Michael was murdered," she said. "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 in music publishing assets and somebody killed him for that. He was worth more dead than alive."

Jackson revealed that her younger brother had previously expressed his fears that people were out to get him.

"A couple of years ago Michael told me he was worried that people were out to get him," she said. "'They're gonna kill me for my publishing. They want my catalogues and they're gonna kill me for these.' I knew something terrible was going to happen."

Millions of dollars in cash and jewellery were taken from Jackson's house on the day of his death, his sister also alleges.
