Majestik Magnificent, late Michael Jackson's personal magician, lost his battle to cancer at 3:05 a.m. this morning, RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively.

In recent months, MJ's mother Katherine Jackson had forked over more than $1 million to help pay for Majestik's medical bills as he battled against aggressive malignant brain cancer.

Last spring, sources told Radar that the 61-year-old, who also worked as Mohammed Ali's personal magician, had an estimated four-six months left to live.

"He said he had a team of eight or nine specialists , and he's actually living at Katherine's compound," one insider shared at the time. "She's taking care of him. His medical bill so far was up to $1.6 million, and she's picking up the tab for it."

Katherine also arranged for Majestik to receive treatment at the Adventist Medical Center in Glendale, Calif., said the source.

As reported, Majestik first met the King of Pop in the 1990s, and later became one of the singer's most avid supporters throughout his 2005 molestation trial, saying, "I know his character. He would not hurt a child."

During the last months of his life, it was reported that Majestik even turned to an experimental program at Duke University in a last-ditch effort to overcome cancer, though he remained on the waiting list.
