Pondering on how he could raise that money, Michael wrote about possibly holding Cirque du Soleil concerts and getting brand deals with companies like Nike. 

Michael is said to have had plans to remake films like 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and The 7th Voyage of Sinbad, and was keen to hire ‘a merchandising guy.’

In a notepad pages of his musings that feature in the book, he wrote: ‘If I don’t concentrate on film, no immortalization.’

In a darker tone, Michael’s notes also saw him write about his fear over someone wanting to kill him, as he felt someones was planning to ‘destroy’ him.

‘I’m afraid someone is trying to kill me,’ he wrote in one excerpt from the book. 

‘Evil people ­everywhere. They want to destroy me and take my publishing company. The system wants to kill me for my ­catalogue… I’m not selling it.’

According to author Howard, the book is set to ‘give an intimate insight into the mind of the drug-addled superstar as he prepared to make one final attempt to relaunch his career and pay off his mounting debts.’ 

Michael died in 2009 at the age of 50 while he was preparing for his This Is It tour after he overdosed on propofol and benzodiazepine which had been given to him by his personal physician Dr Conrad Murray.

Before and after his death Michael was accused of child sex abuse, with the most recent claims coming out in 2019 docu-series Leaving Neverland by Wade Robson and James Safechuck.

Bad: An Unprecedented Investigation into the Michael Jackson Cover-Up is out now in the US, and will be released in the UK on August 20, 2020.
