Michael Jackson: Too Weak to Perform For Years?

by at . Comments

As we reported earlier, Dr. Conrad Murray is likely to argue at trial on involuntary manslaughter charges that Michael Jackson killed himself.

Now, in addition to MJ accidentally delivering his own coup de grace in the form of a lethal Propofol dose, comes a second component to the theory.

Jackson's weakened state during various tours throughout life - including the 2009 London concerts that never took place - will be a focal point.

This Was It

THIS WAS IT: Jackson never made it on tour in 2009.

There's "compelling evidence" MJ was in poor health whenever he went on tour, sources say, dating back to his Bad and Dangerous albums decades ago.

Jackson was frequently "dehydrated, medicated, and sleep-deprived" and like with Dr. Conrad Murray, had a doctor who accompanied him on the road.

The gist is that grueling concert schedules took a huge toll, leaving him prone to and demanding drugs to sleep, long before Murray was in the picture.

The "This Is It" London tour was especially grueling, because AEG added dozens of concert dates for Michael, who was weaker than ever by last year.

Not only that, the perfectionist was terrified he would fail to live up to expectations and pushed himself even harder to overcompensate for that fear.

This dovetails into the defense theory that MJ was over-medicated and reduced to a shell of his former self after years spent under enormous pressure.

By the time last spring rolled around, he couldn't sleep he relied on Propofol to do the trick, and became increasingly frustrated when it did not work.

The defense believes that when Dr. Murray walked out of the room June 25 and Jackson woke up, he accidentally infused himself with the fatal dose.

What do you think? Is there any chance that's true? Is that enough for reasonable doubt, or should Murray pay the price regardless?

Here's a clip of Michael rehearsing for a performance of "Human Nature" on his ill-fated tour. Does he look a bit wobbly or weak to anyone else?

michael was an angel. he was used for money in a very disgraceful way. dr. murray did not care for him properly. he left the room which never never should have happened. he gave him a drug that should not have been used outside a hospital setting. he was neglectful. therefore guilty of the charge.

NOT Michaels fault. NEVER his fault. He would never want to harm himself or anyone in any way.
Its all the doctors fault for allowing him the drugs.

Are you kidding me? You mean it would actually be ok for a doctor to administer iv sedatives to a patient, leave a lethal dose of propofol laying around within the patient's reach, then leave the room and hope for the best? Is this a joke? Has anyone ever heard of the idea that it's the doctor's responsibility to keep their patient safe while they adminster medication? HELLO!

@Eric Too bad Murray couldn't have been your mother's doctor a year before you were born, it would have saved us from your pathetic, ignorant little comment. Maybe you did't hear about how the scumbag parents were making their kids tell the fables of what Michael "did" to them, it came out during the trials, after he died many of the sick parents admitted they did it for money. Go fix yourself a Propofol coctail, jacka$$.

Who gives a crap if the doc killed him - the world is better of without the sick pervert. He drugged and had sex with little boys. Mr. Murray, I will start the petition if you are convicted. The only negatives I see about MJs death are that he is unlikely to be parodied again in Fsmily Guy and South Park, at least not anytime soon.

Who are they going to put on trial? Dr. Conrad Murray or Robert Earl Carter. They are both the same man. Yes the man that is accused if killing Michael has a alias. You can track his whole other life, including residances,and other real properties. So who is this guy a real doctor or as I've read an actor? It just gets stranger and stranger as Alice would say.

Jackson didn't die on the "Bad" or "Dangerous" tours, so what difference does it make. The autopsy report listed him as healthy for his age. His liver and kidney were healthy, not a known addict. But if Murray tries to claim he was weak and unable to perform then he has to explain why he didn't do something and failing that why he didn't quit and tell someone what was happening. Sounds like a lie to me.
