Frank Dileo , the man who managed the King of Pop at the height of his fame in the 1980s, may have passed away in August of 2011, but he left plenty of claims behind in journals and videos. One of these claims include how he says he used his influence to call off a mafia hit on Michael Jackson.
Dileo was a force of a man who was most recognized as a short, stout, cigar chomping dude, who even played the role of a gangster in Martin Scorsese film Goodfellas, about the Mob in New York.
Now, according to yet another book about the late idol, the Mafia planned to carry out a contract killing on Jackson.
DiLeo was 63-years old when he died following complications from heart surgery.
The dozens of personal journals and tape and video recordings he left behind is where he talked about Jackson.
The book, called “Dileo: I am going to set the record straight” is being compiled by his former business partner, Mark Lamica.
In addition to the planned mob hit, DiLeo also talks about Jackson’s addiction to plastic surgery. And so far, the upcoming book offers little new information on Jacksons obsession to plastic surgery, with the motive being he didn’t want to favor his dad, Joseph Jackson.
Lamica told the New York Post:” Michael told Frank in a phone call that he couldn’t bear to see his father’s face when he looked in the mirror.
“Frank had told him he needed to stop changing his face, because he was becoming unrecognizable to his fans.”
According to Lamica , the book will also name and shame everybody – including family members – who took advantage of Jackson and his multi-million pound fortune.
