MICHAEL JACKSON’s ghost has declared his death was an accident, according to AEG Live chief executive officer (CEO) Randy Phillips who was told of the revelation by Lionel Richie’s ex-wife.

Randy Phillips — AEG Live CEO and a close friend of the All Night Long hitmaker’s former spouse Brenda — made the eerie claim to jurors at the ongoing wrongful death lawsuit his family have brought against the concert promoters.
He told the court how the singer’s ex-wife claimed Dr Conrad Murray — who has been jailed for giving the Thriller star a fatal sedative overdose in 2009 — was not at “fault” for Michael’s death.
He revealed: “Brenda called me to tell me that she was in communications with Michael, either through a medium or directly.
“She said Michael told her it wasn’t Dr Murray’s fault — that he had accidentally killed himself.”
Although laughter filled the courtroom, judge Yvette Palazuelos let Randy’s testimony stand.
He was being questioned about an e-mail sent to an AEG colleague in 2009.
He had written: “I think I know what MJ died of and this would exonerate Conrad.”
While a Jackson family lawyer objected — on the grounds it was triple hearsy because Phillips was telling of a conversation revealed to him by Brenda, who spoke to a medium who allegedly contacted the late singer — they were overruled.
