How MJ's 'Hollywood' friends preyed on his millions

London, Nov 18 (ANI): Michael Jackson was ripped off for millions of dollars by the few Hollywood stars he called friends, including Marlon Brando and Elizabeth Taylor, an explosive new book has revealed.

According to author Randall Sullivan, Brando and Taylor both took the singer for lots of money while purporting to support him, the Daily Express reported.

He claims that Brando demanded 600,000 pounds simply to record a 10-minute tribute video played at a concert in New York to celebrate Jackson's 30 years as a performer.

More than 20,000 fans booed as the actor slurred his way through a scripted speech.

Elizabeth Taylor, whom the singer described as his "closest friend in the world," also demanded payment for defending him during his child molestation trial.

Instead of a fee, she was rewarded with a 402,000-pound diamond necklace for recording a brief video message played on major US TV networks.

Sullivan's book 'Untouchable: The Strange Life and Tragic Death of Michael Jackson,' just published in America, also accuses family members of demanding cash to be filmed at his concerts.

They vehemently deny this but Sullivan alleges that the singer even built a secret room at his Neverland Ranch where he hid when they tried to visit. (ANI)
