Notes written by Michael Jackson revealing his fears that he would be murdered have been uncovered this week. reports citing The Sun.

The King of Pop wrote just weeks before his death saying: “They are trying to murder me,” The Sun reports.

In other notes, the superstar said he was “scared about my life” and that “the system wants to kill me for my catalogue”.

They are among a collection of letters passed to German businessman Michael Jacobshagen, 34, who had a two-decade friendship with Jackson.

In an upcoming interview with broadcaster Daphne Barak, he will tell how a tearful Jacko called him from Las Vegas in 2009.

Jacobshagen, who befriended the star aged 11, then flew to the US to see him and was handed the letters.

It is unclear who they were initially intended for.

In one, written in black ink on plain white paper, Jackson refers to the promoter of his sell-out shows at the O2 in London.

He said: “AEG makes so much pressure to me. I have a bad feeling. I’m scared about my life. Call Joseph tomorrow.”

The letter refers to concert promoters AEG, which was organising his performances in London, while Joseph is believed to be his dad Joe Jackson.

A third note expressed fear that he was being killed for his music catalogue.

Jackson died aged 50 on June 25, 2009.

The official cause of death was an overdose of the sedative propofol.

His doctor Conrad Murray served half of a four-year jail term for involuntary manslaughter.

But several members of Jackson’s family — including daughter Paris — have claimed he was murdered.

The chat with Jacobshagen by Barak, who has also previously interviewed Jackson along with Nelson Mandela, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, will air worldwide.

Ms Barak said: “Jacobshagen approached me earlier this year. He was eager to talk about the Michael Jackson he had known.

“He insisted to meet with me because of my previous interviews with Jackson and his parents.

“I had published audios of Jackson, showing his heavy addictions and that he was abused by enablers around him. It sent a clear message to people who still tried to benefit from him after his death.

“Jacobshagen kept writing to us and said that he had handwritten notes of the late star, never seen before. Some were written in 2009, before his tragic death.

“So we agreed to meet with Jacobshagen, film his account and look at the notes.”
