The siblings said that Michael’s security would not allow them to see him and that they were unable to reach him by phone in an interview with The (Sydney) Daily Telegraph.
The New York Post reports:
“We tried many, many times — interventions and everything else. We couldn’t get to him. He had a fortress around him.
“It’s a sad, ugly scene with people like that, when they see you coming they run the other way. People want to continue staying on that payroll. They don’t want you to rock the boat.”
Michael’s elder brother Tito, 58, said he got into physical fights with his brother’s security team who blocked him from seeing the star.
