Michael Jackson kept an “enemy list” which included famed Israeli illusionist Uri Geller and Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, the renowned U.S. broadcaster, as revealed this week by the star’s former manager Dieter Wiesner.

The alleged list contained names of people who Jackson believed were out to destroy his life, as Wiesner told British tabloid ‘The Sun’ on Friday.

I’d ask him, ‘Michael, what are you doing?’ said Weisner, ‘These people are after me and they want to destroy my life.’”

After Jackson’s sudden death in June, Geller admitted in several interviews that his relationship with the star had been severed in 2002 after Martin Bashir made a controversial documentary on Jackson. Jackson accused Geller of the whole state of affairs, as Geller had initially introducing the star to Bashir.

Immediately after Jackson’s death Geller was noted several times saying that they had also had differences of opinions due to the star’s drug habits.

He added that he was not surprised that lethal levels of the anesthetic propofol were discovered in Jackson’s autopsy earlier this month.

Yet Geller also claimed that he and Jackson had straightened things out before his death.

Wiesner added that he had assisted writing the document which contains several names of people which Jackson had personally chosen, which was meant to be handed to Jackson’s closest associates.

Other names on the list included District Attorney Tom Sneddon, who charged the star with child molestation back in 1993, as well as Feminist lawyer Gloria Allred, who was in charge of raising questions regarding Jackson’s parenting abilities.

Mariah Carey’s ex husband Tommy Mottola was another on the list allegedly after an argument over a record deal.
