The Jackson family's private affairs have been aired again after Michael Jackson's burial was delayed for nearly three months due to a row over £30,000 involving his sister Janet, a new book claims.

According to Huffington Post, the new book "Untouchable: The Strange Life and Tragic Death of Michael Jackson," reveals that Janet had allegedly paid $40,000 deposit  to secure a burial site for her brother shortly after his death.

But the singer reportedly wouldn’t let her brother be laid to rest until his estate reimbursed her.

Michael Jackson, who died on June 25, 2009 was laid to rest on August 29, over two months after he was found dead in his home.

The  biography Untouchable also claims his family searched his home for cash after he died at 50 in 2009 owing £300million.

It was reported last month that Michael Jackson's mother had suffered a stroke due to the stress of her son's estate.

However according to TMZ sources connected with the estate are now hitting back and accusing MJ's brothers and sisters of being involved in a sinister plot to keep the money for themselves.

Randy, Jermaine, Janet, Tito and Rebbie Jackson are said to have all signed a letter demanding that the executors of Jacko's estate step down.

The siblings have accused executors of forging Michael's signature and that the will is "without question, fake, flawed and fraudulent."

Sources are claiming that the Jackson family are so strapped for cash that they are lying about the authenticity of the will.

The Jackson family have yet to comment on claims made in "Untouchable: The Strange Life and Tragic Death of Michael Jackson''.
