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?

wow it doesnt make any sense. first of all we al have heard tht the drugs murray was administering are suppose to be given only in hospitals and one needs proper devices to administer them which he obviously didnt have. how can he put the blame on mj being weak or addicted to medication since yrs. being a doctor he should know where to draw the line. but i guess the money he was receiving was just too good to say no to. so i dont buy this whole shitty thing that mj was weak and killed himself claim.
im not saying murray killed him on purpose but it was an accident that should see his license being suspended. we all know mj hated tours, he was on medication for really long and that he had problems but that dosnt mean that doctors should give in to patients demand when they know how risky it can be.

In my opinion this further complicates things for the "good doctor". He is the medical expert, why didn't he do something? He is not supposed to give a known addict drugs in this manner. This was a perfect storm and now a man is dead. Michael certainly played apart in his own demise. It is very sad that no one cared more for the man than the money.

AEG/Sony has probably destroyed all the cutting room floor film that was excluded from the documentary that shows Jackson under the influence of the nightly drug cocktail he required in order to sleep. AEG also has blood on their hands.

If Jackson was in such bad shape why didn't Murray have him admitted to a hospital? He chose to violate his hipocratic oath and administer anesthesia in a home environment, he's a doctor, he knows better. He did it for the $$$$$.

No matter what Dr. Murray said, the Autopsy Report was CONCLUSIVE that Michael did NOT commit suicide. It was stated very clearly in the report, therefore,it doesn't matter what Murray tries to pull out, at the end of the day the Autopsy Report will NOT support Dr. Murray's defense....period!

MJ paid with his life for any mistake he made. I pay for my mistakes. Murray made a mistake and, possibly several/ Like all the rest of us, he should pay too.

I think it is disgusting that so many Fans abandoned MJ while he was living, only to try to lionize him now...same tired crap was pulled on Elvis. It IS possible, that like Elvis, he simply made a mistake Hugely talented, he was after all, a man. And being aMan , I hardly believe he would want to see his beloved Doctor made to pay for his, MJ's, mistakes.

More diversion. Michael said many times that while he was on tour he didn't eat correctly, couldn't sleep because of the
schedule, and had to have IV hydration at times. Not news. Look, the defense is blatantly putting Mr. Jackson's life on
trial here. The bottom line is Murray is charged with involuntary manslaughter. Why? Because he ignored his Oath
as a physician for a paycheck, practiced outside his scope of training and knowledge, administered numerous sedatives and then propofol to
his ONE patient in a bedroom,for insomnia, without monitoring,
and HE LEFT THE ROOM. He also neglected to inform the paramedics
and hospital personnel about the propofol use and he changed his
timeline later in the investigation. All this noise that the defense is making is an attempt to blur
the real issue here. Michael's history doesn't matter, nor does
Murray's. Personally, I find these allegations insulting and
obvious attempts to exonerate Murray.

Please allow me to quote you:
"It seems that the committing suicide theory was pushing a little too far, so here is a new one, the accidentally committing suicide theory ! Was MJ accidentally left alone without any monitoring or was he accidentally given PCR on his bed instead of the floor?" I personally believe Micheel Jackson was deliberatedly killed.
