A new report from Rolling Stone claims LaToya Jackson is in possession of hard drives from her late brother Michael Jackson's rented home, which contain a plethora of unreleased songs.

The hard drive includes songs he recorded with singers such as Ne-Yo, Akon, and of the Black Eyed Peas, says the magazine. Others are songs that never appeared on 1987's Bad.

MJ's manager Frank DiLeo claims that hours after Michael died, his family arrived at the house and carted away all its contents, with LaToya taking the hard drives.

"They backed up trucks, removing everything," DiLeo was quoted as telling the magazine in its issue that hits newsstands on Friday. "They thought Michael owned it all, so they took even the rented furniture. That's who's going to run his estate?"

As Michael's will stands now, his mother Katherine Jackson will receive 40 percent of his estate, but she is fighting for more control over his legacy. DiLeo says he's "pretty sure" the hard drives are now at the family's Encino compound.

"The estate lawyers will send out letters" to recover the drives so that the contents can be logged, DiLeo added.
