Since Michael's tragic and unexpected death last June, his sister LaToya has been very vocal about what she thinks happened to Michael. She he maintains that he was "murdered." She claimed Michael made a premonition that he will be killed for his fortune, and according to LaToya, that was what happened. But since his death, Latoya has been having a hard time coping with the loss and has since searched for, and paid thousands to, a psychic who claims to be able to communicate with Michael, according to the Globe.
"LaToya believe she's managed to contact Michael and she's ecstatic," a pal reveals.
"She was totally distraught when Michael died and wondered if she'd ever be able to get over the loss of her little brother, who died at the age of 50. But making this connection has given her a sense of peace."
LaToya, 53, began her quest to contact the Thriller singer about two weeks after Michael's drug overdose death on June 25, says the source.
"She went through half a dozen psychics before she found the right one," the friend says.
"This woman psychic who lives in LA told LaToya some very personal details about Michael that only close family members know.
"LaToya knew right then that she was indeed in contact with Michael. Now she's having regular sessions with the psychic, sometimes as many as five times a week. The sessions made LaToya more at peace about the tragedy of Michael's death. She's learned that he's finally in a good place. He also communicates he’s constantly watching over his kids, Prince, Paris, Blanket, and sees they’re incredibly loved by their grandmother, Katherine, and the rest of the family.
"When LaToya told other family members about the psychic visits, some of them didn't exactly approve. But as far as LaToya is concerned, it's not about them, it's about her trying to feel better about Michael's death and about getting through this tough time.
"The sessions have already cost LaToya thousands, but they're so important to her, she's managing to find the money.
"Not only does she go to the psychic's house, but sometimes in the middle of the night when she wakes up thinking of her brother, she knows she can pick up the phone, no matter what time it is.
"Having this psychic connection to Michael is tremendously reassuring to her."
