The Last Days of Michael Jackson: Scared, Sedated

by at . Comments

It goes without saying at this point, but Michael Jackson did not go out on a high note in 2009. Stress, desperation and medication were all taking their toll.

The star was so worried he couldn't perform his 50 London concerts, he worried out loud that promoter AEG would cut him loose and he'd have nothing left.

To illustrate just how stressed out he was, he would wonder aloud if he, one of the richest entertainers in history, would end up working at McDonald's.


NOT OKAY: Michael Jackson was exhibiting all the warning signs.

Karen Faye, Michael's hairstylist for a quarter century, was interviewed by LAPD detectives days after MJ died, and described some of his innermost fears.

Faye told cops, "He was scared to death because AEG was funding everything. He said he would have to work at McDonalds if he didn't do these shows."

Faye also said she felt Michael was "self-sabotaging" with drugs because Jackson couldn't do all 50 shows and was in dire need of psychological help.

Others have speculated he was too weak to perform for years.

He was losing so much weight, his close friend said, "I thought he was under the influence of something." She points to his personal doctor as a source.

Not Dr. Conrad Murray, the physician on AEG's payroll who stands trial for involuntary manslaughter. She's talking about MJ's old friend, Dr. Arnold Klein.

Faye says Michael's assistant told her he was seeing Dr. Arnold Klein 3-4 times a week and was exhibiting signs of drug use. That's hardly a big stretch.

Days before Michael died, when Jackson seemed to be more lucid, she asked Michael's manager if he knew why Michael had taken a turn for the better.

His response, according to Faye: "'Cause Klein is out of town."

Klein does not face any charges for his treatment of Michael.

Murray, whose defense is likely to argue that MJ was already in a fragile state and did himself in (possibly by chugging Propofol), will be tried in March.




I remember having watched Arnold Klein talking for hours on TMZ. I found him scary and out of his mind. How could a doctor pour out on a gossip media, as much disturbing information as he could about his patient and... friend ?


I don't think the O2 guy is Michael and I don't think the person they autopsied is him either. I think the person who died is a look alike on their last leg and Murray is either a fool for a doctor or a paid actor. You can fool some of the people some of the time but you can't fool all of the people all of the time. I'm sorry but its so hard to feel sorry for many of these celebrities. They all want the fame and fortune but the bottom line is simply this - if you dance with the devil, you're gonna get burned, period. You can't beat the system but you can chose to walk away. Michael was not dumb. He knew the risks. I think he walked away and for good.


Everybody involved are crying all the Way to the bank. Randy Phillips said he would do it again. He makes me sick. What a cynical man he is.


"explains why" and not "expensiva why" and "bloody shirt" not "volley shirt". Sorry!


The autopsy said that MJ had pneumonia. The pneumonia expansiva why MJ was freezing cold in the middle of the summer. And his weightloss and muscle pain. His rheumatoid arthritis explains why ge was in so much physical pain. And when you have pneumonia you caughing blood, that explains the volley shirt in his closet. You don't plan a huge comeback if you are seriously ill. MJ must have been pushed into a corner and forced to do it. He had no choice. MJ was forced to sign away all his assets to AEG as security. If he had canceled the tour he would have lost all his assets. They set him up bigtime. And all the added shows. They Said that he was in great shape and didn't knew that MJ was sick and unable to tour. Yeah right! MJ is gone because of them. They killed him. Money was more important to them than MJ.


And one more thing it nice to see the nasty media slandering Dr Klein .his is being blame for mike death in this article which i think he help killed mike slowly too. with his dirty fat ugly ass but DA is not going 4 his throat cause he wasn't there when mike died Dr Death was who head is so far up his ass that he couldn't pay attention to what he was doing not even for one second. mike needed to be in rehab not trying to do some stupid ass comeback tours cause it wasn't even worth his life. that's how i feel about it


What the fuck. This is all bullshit. Is Michael so stupid that he can't work in a big company( as their bullshit story told) ? He's never desparate like that. Losing weight and all is normal when u r stress and so much work. And yes, Jackson family r very weak. The main point is , fucking conrad did bring propofol at home. That is the number 1 totally wrong, againts law. And 2nd,propofol can't be mixed with other sedatives. I'm not a doc but still know it. Michael never self sabotage. What kinda friend r u karen?. There's no way Michael give up. I know him. In my life, the srongest woman I've seen is my grandma and my mother ,the strongest man I've seen is Michael Jackson. Shut all the bullshit FUCKING MEDIA!!


MJ'S immune system broke down that's why his lungs were chronically inflamed.


You lose weight when your lungs are Inflamed.
