The Godfather of Soul was murdered, according to the star's former publicist.

James Brown passed away at the age of 73 on Christmas day in 2006 after suffering a heart attack, something Jacque Hollander disagrees with.

Speaking to The Globe Ms Hollander said that she believes he was murdered and has since hired a private investigator to begin looking into the late singer's death.

Not stopping there, she added that Darren Lumar, Brown's son-in-law, was also deliberately killed in November 2008 because "he knew too much."

"He was going to tell the truth about what was done to James Brown. Now I am living in fear of my life because I'm the one who can bring forth the truth," she told the tabloid publication.

At the time Lumar told a local Georgia TV show: "There's not a bone in my body that believes my father-in-law died from congestive heart failure."

Brown, who was also known as the Hardest Working Man in Show Business and Mr Dynamite was known for his funky style both vocally and physically – he was a "feverish" dancer.

"I think the best thing about being James Brown is looking at my little son. Hopefully I can make my son a role model to a lot of people," he once said.
