LONDON - Michael Jackson tried to hire a personal anaesthetist for his London concerts because his drug addiction was severe, it has emerged.
The King of Pop, who died aged 50 from an overdose of sedative propofol in 2009, was desperate for someone to “take care of him” on tour, reports the Daily Star.
He contacted Las Vegas doctor David Adams, who had previously given him injections, about the job.
Despite Adams admitting he was interested, the post never materialised, it is claimed.
Now the doctor is expected to act as a defence witness for Dr Conrad Murray, who is facing a charge of “unintentional killing without malice” over the singer’s death.
“Dr Adams’s testimony will prove just how severely addicted to prescription drugs Michael was,” a source said.
Dr Murray’s lawyers are sure the evidence will help the jury realize Jacko was “his own worst enemy”.
The doctor is to stand trial in LA next month. (ANI)
