MICHAEL Jackson's family raided his home to confront him about his drug use.

MICHAEL Jackson's family raided his home to confront him about his drug use.

The late pop icon tried desperately to conceal his abuse of prescription medications from his siblings and even ordered his bodyguards not to let them into his house.

His brother Tito said: "I never saw him on drugs. Not once. He deliberately did it away from us.

"He didn't want his family to know anything about that part of him. He did almost everything in his power to make sure we didn't know.

"We had to act. It was me, my sisters Janet, Rebbie and La Toya, and my brothers Jackie and Randy. We bust right into the house and he was surprised to see us to say the least.

"We went into one of his private rooms and had a discussion with him. Some of us were crying. We kept asking him if it was true what we had heard that he was using drugs.

"He kept denying it. He said we were overreacting. We also spoke to a doctor and he assured us it was not the situation. He said he was there to make sure Michael was healthy."

The family tried repeatedly to speak to Michael - who died of a suspected cardiac arrest last month - about his addiction but he went to increasing lengths to keep them away. - Bang
