By Sandra Rose  | 

Former Michael Jackson nurse, Cherilyn Lee, who specializes in herbal or alternative medicine, is telling anyone who will listen that her friend was not a prescription drug addict.

She claims Michael was simply an insomniac, a tormented soul who just wanted to get a good night's sleep.

She also claims that Michael recently begged her for Diprivan, a powerful short-acting sedative that is only administered intravenously in a medical facility. This was her proof that Mike only needed a little rest.

Nevermind that there are many powerful sedatives available by prescription that don't require starting an IV every time they're administered.

Note to Cherilyn: We don't believe you!

People don't spend $48,000 a month on sleeping pills. And they don't obtain thousands of scripts using aliases and employee's names unless they're addicts. Good try though.

From TMZ.com:

Michael Jackson used a slew of aliases to score prescription meds, and we know the two names that could unlock the key to gross abuse by Jackson and some prominent doctors.

We've learned Jackson frequently used the names Omar Arnold and Jack London to get powerful drugs, including Demerol. Jackson also used the name of one of his bodyguards, as well as the name of the office manager for one of his doctors.

The DEA, which is joining to assist the LAPD in its investigation of several doctors who prescribed drugs to Jackson, will be hunting down these names and others.

Sources tell us the prescription abuse was so egregious, one doctor would call the pharmacy and say Jackson was coming down to get Demerol. The pharmacy would then fill the prescription, leaving the patient's name blank.

    I don't recall her being the one to say he had a 48,000 rx bill.

    The little I heard her say I believed :shrug:

    the pharmacy and all those drs need to be sued, they knew what they were doing.

    Money talks...and its a shame thats why so many celebs die from Rx overdoses...they are given whatever they need but dont require them medically....its a shame....

  • pointhimout

    true LJ, but ultimately it's up to the individual to do what's best for them. you have to know when to pull away, or in the case of any addiction, seek help. as i've said before, nothing will bring him back. this is just a sad, sad story from every angle.

  • pointhimout

    i had to come back and post this. over time tboz has been saying she can't sleep either and has insomnia. i wonder what causes this for long periods of time. years even.

    SMH@ people thinking the MJ's death is getting too much coverage, he was the biggest celeb greatest entertainer ever...

    WHERE and WHEN are they gonna bury this man

    Further still between all 300 Jacksons why cant they get they ish together and get Neverland up and running and bury him there..to hell with the neighbors, this is Michael fucking Jackson

  • Krysi J

    UUUUgh! :mad: , I just want this to be over.

  • Daisy

    @Point MC has been on record for years talking about how hard it is for her to sleep

  • Kat

    i still can't believe that mike is gone.... :sad:

  • anti-PC

    This is so reminiscent of Anna Nicole Smith and all the enablers who surrounded her.

    Mike was surrounded by leeches whom he thought he could trust, but instead they enabled him to basically kill himself. I feel so bad about everything. Especially those three kids who are now without a dad.

    But I have to agree with what someone else on here said: ultimately, Michael is the one who is responsible for himself.

    I honestly feel like crying right now. He is dead and it could have very well been prevented.

  • iscream

    I'M SO SICK OF PEOPLE SPECULATING. He told her he couldn't sleep and inquired about something that most all the Dr's interviewed said is darn near impossible to get outside of a hospital setting. SHE NEVER SAW HIM USE IT!!!! Yet she is all over the TV bumping her gums.

    How many damn people in Hollywood abuse PX drugs and are cocaine sniffers? 99.99% of they arses that's how much. All this talk about drugs. Were drugs found in his home? Were drugs found on his person the time of his death? Were niddles hanging out of his arms? & the track mark rumors are False.

    Maybe he just died. Point blank period! Can't wait till the coronors report comes out. What are people going to say if his blood comes back clean. NOTHING that's what they'll say because they have already painted him to be this drug user. :mad:

  • Krysi J

    I just wish we could celebrate the GOOD, and bury the man respectfully without all this BS.

  • Krysi J

    I honestly feel like crying right now. He is dead and it could have very well been prevented.

    ---------------------------------------------------------

    I wouldn't be surprise if Michael wanted to die, look at how people are talking shyt bout him even in death....just imagine how hard it was to live in the middle of everybody making a mockery of you alive. I know I played my part, but at least I have respect for the dead, DAMN!

  • anti-PC

    Krysi J, you are so right.

    The only reason he was living was for his kids. I doubt he wanted to leave his kids, though because I know he wanted them to see him perform live.

  • iscream

    & lets be real $48,000 a month worth of pills. He would've been dead a looooonnnng time ago with that much drugs.

    If the px's were in other people's name whose to say that he was the one ordering it? He could've been associated with someone who was selling drugs and not have known it. People just want to paint him with the worst brush in the paint kit.

    I'm not saying he didn't use any drugs at all. I'm saying he didn't do what most all celeb's & non celeb's do everyday. So don't try and single him out like he is the only one. Shyt put everybody in Hollywood on blast then. This case probably has so many people going thru withdrawals because the drug dealers are on high alert and can't get them their supplies.

    Thank goodness I live in NY & can still get my :smoke: Ganja! With no problem :D

    ~~~~~~~~~~~
    I have this problem. It's anxiety/stress. Your mind is going a million miles a minute wordering if you called that person back or put that ceck in the mail, turned off the stove, iron, locked the doors. Being a cig smoker to relieve stress it's also a stimulant so smoking, caffeine or alcohol before bed defeats the bodies natual ability to rest. Yes I know the answer but it's hard to stop the obsessive worry.

  • SunnyPA

    @Anna I also have that problem
    I'm an insomniac...I've been taking sleeping pills for years. I know there are natural remedies and alternatives. But, it takes constant effort and a lot of time.

    Personally, I don't want to take the time to make sure everything is just right (lights off, meditation, do not drink/eat certain foods hours before going to bed, etc) ... it's easier to just take a pill 30 minutes before I want to go to sleep.

    I'm sure that at superstar level, the adrenaline and stress levels are off the charts making it that much harder to sleep.

  • luvly1957

    @ Sandra did they get the report back saying he abused drugs? Did any doctors get arrested yet? Has someone come fwd and said I SAW Michael doing drugs? I'm working so I may have missed this breaking news.

    & if it comes out that he didn't abuse drugs will you post an apology? Or do like the rest and move on to the next story.

  • SunnyPA

    I take ambien (in fact, I on my way to pick up a refill). It's the only sleeping pill that doesn't leave me groggy in the morning.

    But, you do have to be careful...they are lying about those bouts of amnesia. My daughter said that I walked the dog at 3:00am one morning and I don't remember that at all.

    & I never said he didn't do any drugs. But you all are trying to make him out to be a hard core drug addict with no proof just to sell a story.

    Oh, pardon me. Let me rephrase that just for you: 50-year-old healthy men -- who just passed a rigorous health exam for an insurance company -- with no past history (including family history) of cardiovascular disease or cardiac problems, such as hypertension, high cholesterol, coronary artery disease, arterial blockage, arrhythmias, etc. -- don’t just up and die of cardiac arrest.

    But men with a 20-year history of prescription drug abuse, who just moved a doctor into his home so he could have 24-hour access to IM and IV prescription drugs that he can't get outside of a hospital -- do.

    Hope that helps.

    @sandra

    Have you ever considered doing tv?

  • iscream

    Sandra please stop it. The doctor already said he didn't give him any Rx. Now is he lying? I don't know. But I will have to believe him over TMZ since he was the one actually there.

    & this doctor has stayed with him before. Nor was he the only person Michael invited in his home. I guess Lou Furino was also supplying him with drugs since he was training him to get back in shape for the tour.

    Again, he may have been on some type of Rx to cope with the pressure but so is everyone in Hollyweird. I hope it is found out he was abusing drugs the Feds step in and lock Hollyweird down. Then we'll have some real news to report. You'll see all kindve celeb's on your local corner trying to get a taste.. Bunch of crackheads.

    But since many have died b4 him and nothing was done. I doubt the will go after the real culprit. They'd rather go after Mookie on the corner trying to fed his baby.

  • Krysi J

    OMG, yall this has me in TEARS... :sad: Jermaine just broke my heart with this interview

    FEDS GET IN ON MJ's DRUG POSSIBLE DRUG ABUSE:

    With the federal Drug Enforcement Administration now joining the investigation into Michael Jackson's death, Jermaine Jackson says he would be "hurt" if toxicology reports show that his younger brother abused prescription drugs."In this business, the pressures and things that you go through, you never know what one turns to," Jermaine Jackson said in an interview broadcast Thursday on NBC's "Today" show.
    The circumstances surrounding Jackson's death last week have become a federal issue, with the DEA asked to help police take a look at the pop star's doctors and possible drug use. Allegations have emerged that the 50-year-old entertainer had been consuming painkillers, sedatives and antidepressants.
    Asked if he would be shocked or surprised if Michael's drug use was proven, Jermaine Jackson said, "I would be hurt." He said he had heard about prescription drug use in the 1980s when his brother was hurt in an accident filming a commercial but did not know if drug use was a possibility more recently.
    "I don't know about these things, because I hate anything with drugs," he said, adding that it hurts the family for people to say things about drug use "because we don't know."
    Psychic entertainer Uri Geller, a former Jackson confidant, said Thursday he tried to keep Jackson from abusing painkillers and other prescription drugs, but others in the singer's circle kept him supplied.
    "When Michael asked for something, he got it. This was the great tragedy," Geller said in a telephone interview with The Associated Press from his suburban London home.
    Jermaine Jackson said he would like Neverland Ranch to be his brother's final resting place. A person familiar with the situation who spoke on condition of anonymity told the AP that permits for a burial at Neverland could not be arranged in time.
    Jackson said in the "Today" interview that he wishes he had died instead of his younger brother, and that Michael was "a gift from Allah."
    "He went too soon," he said. "I don't know how people are going to take this, but I wish it was me."
    When asked why he felt that way, he said that he always felt that he was Michael's backbone.
    He said it was a friend who told him last week that his brother had been rushed to the hospital. He called his mother, Katherine, who told him that Michael was dead.
    "To feel and hear the tone in her voice, to say her child is dead, is nothing that anyone can imagine," he said.
    Jermaine Jackson said he rushed to UCLA Medical Center. He asked to see his brother's body. He hugged and kissed him and said, "Michael, I'll never leave you. You'll never leave me," he said.
    The Los Angeles Police Department asked the DEA to help in the probe, a law enforcement official in Washington told the AP on condition of anonymity because of the investigation's sensitivity.
    While the investigation into the singer's death deepened, passionate Michael Jackson fans spent another day in an uneasy limbo, awaiting word from the King of Pop's camp about where and when a memorial service might be held for their hero — and if they're even invited.
    Speculation about the potential location of a memorial ricocheted during the day from the Staples Center to the Los Angeles Coliseum to the Nokia Theater. Jackson family spokesman Ken Sunshine said a public memorial was in the works but that it wouldn't be at Neverland.
    The elimination of the proposed Neverland memorial came as a blow to many Jackson fans who had already descended on the estate in the rolling hills near Santa Barbara with the hope of attending a public viewing.
    "We're terribly disappointed," said Ida Barron, 44, who arrived with her husband Paul Barron, 56, intending to spend several days in a tent.
    Many of Jackson's die-hard fans refused to believe that the family would bury their most famous son without acknowledging the supporters who helped propel him to superstardom.
    "I can't believe they wouldn't do something for his fans," said Rosie Padron, who had roped off a spot just outside the Neverland gates. "Michael loved his fans."
    New Yorkers weren't willing to wait. The weekly Amateur Night at the Apollo Theater turned into a Jackson celebration, with impersonators emulating his outfits and mimicking his dance moves.
    Allison Hector, who wore a T-shirt with the image of the "Thriller" album cover, ecstatically did steps that she learned watching Jackson's music videos.
    "Nobody moves like him," the 19-year-old said, her eyes filling with tears. "I feel it in my blood — I just can't help it!"
    On the legal front, Jackson's 7-year-old will was filed Wednesday in a Los Angeles court, giving his entire estate to a family trust and naming his 79-year-old mother Katherine and his three children as beneficiaries. The will also estimates the value of his estate at more than $500 million.
    Katherine Jackson was appointed the children's guardian, with entertainer Diana Ross, a longtime friend of Michael Jackson, named successor guardian if something happens to his mother. A court will ultimately decide who the children's legal guardian will be.
    Jackson's lawyer John Branca and family friend John McClain, a music executive, were named in the will as co-executors of his estate. In a statement, they said the most important element of the will was Jackson's steadfast desire that his mother become the legal guardian for his children.
    "As we work to carry out Michael's instructions to safeguard both the future of his children as well as the remarkable legacy he left us as an artist, we ask that all matters involving his estate be handled with the dignity and the respect that Michael and his family deserve," the statement said.
    The will doesn't name father Joe Jackson to any position of authority in administering the estate. Also shut out is ex-wife Debbie Rowe, the mother of his two oldest children.
    The executors moved quickly to take control of all of Michael Jackson's property, going to court hours after filing the will to challenge a previous ruling that gave Katherine Jackson control of 2,000 items from Neverland.
    Paul Gordon Hoffman, an attorney for the executors, told Superior Court Judge Mitchell Beckloff his clients are the proper people to take over Jackson's financial affairs. He called Katherine Jackson's speed in getting limited power over her son's property "a race to the courthouse that is, frankly, improper."
    Judge Beckloff urged attorneys from both sides to try to reach a compromise. A hearing on the estate was set for Monday.
    The will, dated July 7, 2002, gives the entire estate to the Michael Jackson Family Trust. Details of the trust will not be made public.
    Jackson owns a 50 percent stake in the massive Sony-ATV Music Publishing Catalog, which includes music by the Beatles, Bob Dylan, Neil Diamond, Lady Gaga and the Jonas Brothers.
    Jackson, who died June 25, left behind three children: son Michael Joseph Jr., known as Prince Michael, 12; daughter Paris Michael Katherine, 11; and son Prince Michael II, 7. Rowe was the mother of the two oldest children; the youngest was born to a surrogate mother, who has never been identified.
    Rowe, who was married to Jackson in 1996 and filed for divorce three years later, surrendered her parental rights. An appeals court later found that was done in error, and Rowe and Jackson entered an out-of-court settlement in 2006.
    Neither Rowe nor her attorneys have indicated whether she intends to seek custody of the two oldest children.

    Really Daisy. You are the first person I heard say that drugs were removed from his home. & what drugs would those be? Like I said I'm sure he was on some type of meds JUST LIKE THE MAJORITY OF CELEBS AND SOME NON CELEB'S. That doesn't mean he didn't need them. & when Dr. Dre's son died it took the report a few weeks to come back. Same with Heath. & again you are the only person I heard report that.

    & I thought you worked in some type of management or something. First time hearing you work in a lab.

  • Shauny

    Thanks Krysi (wiping away tears at my desk). Damn Jermaine is hurting, so sad. I barely click on any story anymore because it's always something so negative. Like I said yesterday, the media is so quick to jump on the bad chit but even if it's not a confirmed story but never report any of the good. When the bad chit is disputed or proven wrong...NOTHING.

    I heard a man on CNN yesterday call MJ's kids his EXACT words his "quote" children, trying to be sarcastic as hell. I was like WTF does that mean? He's raised them since birth you old wrinkled bastard.

  • Daisy

    @Ice it was on CNN last night you know I LOVE me some AC360..lol

    I work in Project Management for Clinical trials and research so the lab is downstairs and alot of the studies I manage have toxicology panels. I am back in school so I can move into non profit or govt where I can HELP try and SAVE the world..lol

  • iscream

    @ Krysi thanks for that update. I will look for interview when I get home.

    What I want to know is why the Feds are getting involved? If it comes back he was hocked up on a million drugs. He is dead they can't go after him. So does that mean they are going to go after the drug dealers. In this fvcked up economy? I doubt it. They just want another reason to tarnish Michaels name.

    It's not about tarnishing Michael's name. Wouldn't this simply be prosecuting the ppl who supplied the Rx.

  • goat76

    @Iscream.....but the Dr. are still alive....they might as well been selling him cocaine....

  • Shauny

    Isc - The DEA too. SMDH. They just want all this chit attached to his name. I bet you Nancy Grace is dancing a jig EVERY night since his death. They're LOVING it.

    Jamie said THEY are going to do a job on him. Some of US are too.

  • coaretained

    LMAO @ iscream... inconsistencies everywhere rigt?LMAO

    @shauny... they aren't gonna let this shyt rest...

  • iscream

    Daisy I also have been glued to CNN.

    I need to relax bc this topic has me HOT AS HAIL!!!!!!

    I loved MJ and I'm still hurting over all of this. & I'm sick of people with their BS stories after the fact. Or because they were fired. Same like the court case.

    I forgot that little boy & his family also swindled Chris Tucker (who I heard is messed up over this) out of some money.

  • Krysi J

    It’s not about tarnishing Michael’s name. Wouldn’t this simply be prosecuting the ppl who supplied the Rx
    ---------------------------------------------------------

    Yea I think, this is why they have launched a DEA investigation to prosecute whoever did wrong by supplying life threatening drugs to Mike.

    Did Nancy even update the Ohio little girl who was found In San Diego County with her mom and moms sex offender bf?
    You know Nancy is loving the MJ story because she likes to yell/argue, I kind of wish she would go back to missing kids.

  • Daisy

    @Ice I feel you and that is why I keep saying it does not matter what they say he will FOREVER be an ICON, KING,LEGEND all that.

    @Shuany That damn Nancy grace IRKS me to know end :mad:

  • Krysi J

    WTH is Nancy Grace??

  • coaretained

    I am leaning towards the rx theory as well.. but thats b/c after listening to nothing but MJ ( literally) for the past 7 days.. I hear the pain.. he asked for folks to leave him alone ( literally) on several songs and the media kept pressing him and greedy folks kept lying on him and him and his naivete believed in people ( how silly of him) allowing those kids in his house and he finally broke....(deep breath).. he wanted to be numb... I can hear it in his music and it makes me so sad...

    I read about Chris Tucker too... you have all of his friends coming out the woodwork saying how good of a person he was.. and then you got Quincy Jones azz... that interview burned me up.

  • Anna

    Krysi J Says:

    WTH is Nancy Grace??

    ~~~~~~~
    She is an ex prosecutor who has a show on CNN M-F @ 8 and repeats @ 10.

  • coaretained

    oh and iscream.. there are some MJ bloopers on youtube.. watched them last night...shed a tear or several...he was human.. he was loving and he was a mess LMAO. At some point his skin was thick ( don't nobody say NATHAN) because he even cracked on himself.

  • iscream

    :rofl: @ the idea that anyone will be arrested. Don't yall see that's the wool to further tarnish his name. Who got arrested after Marilyn Monroe? Heath Ledger? Kirk Cobain (sp), Anna Nicole (did her lawyer go to jail) And the countless others who has lost their life to OD'ing.

    Was the damn DEA called for any of these people.

    That damn Mel Gibson, Charles Barkley, Britney Spears, Nicole Richie, Paris Hilton, Lindsley Lohan should've been enough to launch a full investigation to lock Hollywood drug dealers down.

    Can someone give me the code for that budda smoker up there. No mouse today.

    & Fvck Nancy I can't find a man to knock me up Grace.

    On topic who gives a fuck he's been a druggie and the drugs killed him its a shame that drugs meant more to him then his kids it is what it is and he got what was coming to him this isn't a new story

    *andy gibb*

    So can we move on??

  • Shauny

    Wait, Chris Tucker had to pay some money for a MJ case? I missed that.

    Anna, as soon as she's done with the MJ case she's going back to Caylee Anthony and that Aruba girl. My hubby use to be like Nancy is going to be like, "It's been 1,357,268 days since the (forgot that girls name) vanished. Yet Shepha Henry got 1 day. I can't stand that thin haired biotch.

    I tried to listen to morphine but couldn't download it..never heard of it until he died.

    Give me some facts Chuck and I will take them... it's all speculation until it comes out.

  • wiggy2272003

    Can someone please tell me what happened with Christ Tucker? My bil went to school with him so he is big time with my inlaws.

  • Daisy

    I think Quincy spoke the truth no matter how ugly it is. He knew MJ personally for years like he said he has seen it all. I am sure Q did his share of drinking and drugging as well

  • coaretained

    @krysi

    My home boy is ADAMANT they killed him on purpose... he's too powerful across the globe... only person in the world that can make a person faint by touching them ( his words..not mine..lol)

  • coaretained

    What bothers me is how everyone has so much to say now that he's gone... why you ain't say that shyt while he was alive Q?? When's the last time he was talking to folks anyway??

  • iscream

    :blunt:

    Its sad that when people are ignored in their real life they come to blogs and try to stand out by saying the stupidest shyt just to get attention. How can you have somebody figured out that you don't know. I can't eve say that about people I work with because we all have different faces at work. You can assume but you don't know if half the shyt people type is made up for fun of passing the day.

    Here's an example: Charles I think you are a gay man. I honestly do. Either that or a teenage girl posing as a gay man. Only a queen would be obsessed with a woman and not talk about fvcking her.

    & Quincy Jones is the poster child for cocaine abuse. He almost died from sniffing so much cocaine.

    @ Shauny Chris Tucker didn't have to pay for the MJ case the fam that tried to swindle Michael swindled him first. He was the one who introduced Mike to them.

  • coaretained

    SHAMON!

  • coaretained

    Jia's got some nice pics of him too for those of you who are MJ fans.

  • Shauny

    :clapping: (hope that works) for Isc...speak it!

    Oh and thanks for the Chris Tucker update because I was like WTH?

    maybe one of these

  • Krysi J

    …” Jermaine Jackson said that when he rushed to UCLA Medical Center last Thursday, where the 50-year-old pop singer was pronounced dead, “I wanted to see Michael, and I wanted to see my brother, and see him there lifeless and breathless was very emotional for me, but I held myself together, because I know he’s very much alive.” “His spirit is, and that was just a shell, but I kissed him on his forehead and I hugged him, and I touched him and I said, `Michael, I’ll never leave you. You’ll never leave me.’” On Wednesday, Jackson family spokesman Ken Sunshine said a public memorial was in the works but it wouldn’t be held at Neverland. A person familiar with the situation told the AP that permits for a burial at the sprawling Santa Barbara, Calif., estate could not be arranged in time. The person was not authorized to speak for the family and spoke on condition of anonymity.

    Jackson said Neverland was Michael’s home. “He created this. Why wouldn’t he be here? I feel his presence.”

    ---------------------------------------------------------

    this is so sad.

  • goat76

    Didn't know about QJ cocaine abuse.....where's google...

    How would you go about getting MJ the help he needs....remember this is Michael Jackson......He has to want to help himself too......

  • Charles

    @93

    Do tell

    @96

    Here's a fact, michael jackson died of a drug overdoes, michael jackson was a druggie we all miss him but it is what it is, no different than marilyn monroe, anna nicole , elvis the drugs catch up to you eventually and you die that's how it is, sorry michael but it is what it is

    @101
    Girl boom what the hell are you talking aout?

    ignored??
    Gay man??

    What substantiates any of your claims against me?

  • Shauny

    Everytime I read one of Charles rants when he's going off for some reason it always sounds like Kyle from College Hill in my head.

  • dcwife1622

    Will it ever end?

  • iscream

    @ Coa

    So if I google MJ bloopers will it come up. Is there a certain search I should do.

    @ Krysi

    I don't know if its a set up or not. I'm just saying they are going overboard with these drug allegations. The very people reporting probably took a hit before the director said action. Being a druggie is a huge part of being a celeb so why make Michael seem like he was the only one. Because he was the greatest?

    I'm getting teary eyed again. I just want him to have in death what they wouldn't give him in life. His respect. He has pumped money in this failing music industry and still.... again fvck Quincy Jones. He is mad MJ dropped his arse at the height of his career. & him saying Mike wanted to be white... smh. I better not find out he was marrried to a yt woman.

  • coaretained

    What substantiates any of your claims against MJ? Autopsy results have not been released saying it was DEFINITELY drugs.. when they do THEN you can play fact checker of SR.com but until then..the only fact so far is he is dead and one of the greatest entertainers in the world.
    *FINAL THOUGHT*
    By saying "girl boom"... yeah... that's evidence right there of the "claims" against you.

    Chile you know I ain thinking about Charles and all the figments of "ITS" imagination.

  • coaretained

    @iscream it came up after I watched moonwalker on you tube.. there are three parts to it I know that much. The actual info is on my home PC.

  • goat76

    Um....maybe if he was caught with it or maybe he admitted to a drug problem...like Mike did....it would be found using a search engine........

    Tha LA county coroner said at the press conference that Mike was on Rx medication....so police still investigating the death, live in Doctors......thats enough right there for possible drug overdose.....

    Shamon Goat.. POSSIBLE was the operative word... I'm with you on POSSIBLE.. not DEFINITE.

    @Coa....I feel ya....I don't understand why ya'll getting so upset about the drugs and lies(could be reality)......I blocked that sh1t out, and remember and celebrate MJ for the good he has done and will continue to do(through his Will)....Jesus was lied on, talked about,and crucified, so you know MJ ain't gonna get a pass....

    RIP MJ

  • iscream

    Yep HIV & Aids in the black community is high....

    Because.

    Black men are afraid to admit they are :gay: and then come back home and give us what their boyfriends gave them.

    Mind as well come all the way out the closet.

    Going to look for the Quincy Jones problem. He wrote about it. If you look at his head its the way it is because he had a brain aneurysm from so much sniffing.

    true dat brotha goat true dat...I'm always for the underdog I guess...I'm sure you know that ;)

  • wiggy2272003

    I remember them doing the same thing to Elvis(not that he's as big a star) but I remember his fans being on tv and in the magazines complaining about how they only showed pictures of him at the end of his life at his worst and kept harping on the drugs only and the media wasn't half as powerful back then. Now I know how his fans felt. At this point it is all speculation and everyone trying to get thier 15 minutes and a dollar because their dollar generator is gone.

    IMO I don't think there is any conspiracy, I don't think he was murdered. He was a sad man and not in good health. If he took Rx meds so what? I do believe the FDA is going to prosecute because he is too big of a star. If they weren't involved that would be wrong. I believe it was just his time and he knew it and he also knew how if you believe his exwife.

  • goat76

    I knew about his brain aneurysm, i just didn't know it was because of cocaine use.....

  • iscream

    @ Goat its possible it could've been a rumor. Just like him saying Michael wanted to be white. When Mike said out his own mouth that wasn't true. But it didn't stop Q from saying something like that after his death.

    @ Wiggy are you speaking of Lisa Marie? That was an eerie story she told.

  • wiggy2272003

    Yes I believe MJ and Lisa Marie loved each other maybe even were meant for each other just other stuff got in the way.
    I think he knew how his end would play out. And sad to say he was right.

  • goat76

    @Iscream.....MJ said that he used his own sperm for his kids...That was in an interview...and that Blanket mother was a Black lady..........that came out of MJ's own mouth....so is that true or false

    I ain't trying to dog Mike at all....but to think Mike didn't have any self-issues is outta this world

  • goat76

    @Wiggy....it didn't have to end that way...unless he wanted it to end that way.....

    @ Goat 129

    Now you good and darn well I can't defend that mess. :rofl:
