La Toya Jackson has followed in her sister Janet's footsteps and threatened legal action against editors at Vanity Fair magazine over a new report suggesting she raided the King of Pop's home for cash in the hours after his 2009 death.

Earlier this week (begs08Oct12), Janet Jackson's lawyer slammed claims printed in the November (12) issue of the publication, alleging the Nasty hitmaker held up Michael's funeral as she waited for the $40,000 (£25,000) deposit she gave to cemetery bosses for a burial plot.

In a letter to Vanity Fair editor-in-chief Graydon Carter, Blair G. Brown demanded a retraction and insisted the Estate of Siege story, which was an excerpt from Randall Sullivan's upcoming book, Untouchable: The Strange Life and Tragic Death of Michael Jackson, was "untrue" and "outrageous".

Now La Toya has fired off her own cease-and-desist letter to Vanity Fair bosses, alleging the article is "replete with misstatements of fact, false innuendos, and defamatory insinuations", reports

The singer takes particular offence to claims she showed up at her tragic brother's rented Holmby Hills, California mansion shortly after his passing on 25 June, 2009, and loaded plastic bags full of cash into a duffel bag.

La Toya is demanding a full retraction from Vanity Fair editors and warns them they will face court action if they do not comply with her request.
