According to reports, Conrad Murray, Michael Jackson’s physician revealed that he abused drugs throughout his life and music career in an upcoming documentary TMZ Investigates: Who Really Killed Michael Jackson. In the documentary, the LAPD detective, Orlando Martinez, assigned to Michael Jackson’s death said:

“It’s a lot more complicated than just: Dr. Murray was at his bedside when he died.” 

Orlando Martinez continued:

“Circumstances had been leading up to his death for years, and all of these different medical professionals had allowed Michael to dictate his own terms, get the medicines he wanted, when he wanted them, where he wanted them.” 

Orlando Martinez added:

 “All of them are the reason why he’s dead today.”

According to the assistant chief coroner for LA County, Ed Winter, Jackson had been taking propofol in ‘Gatorade’ size bottles at the time of his death. Conrad Murray stated that propofol “was the only way he could go to sleep, especially when he was getting ready for a tour.” Murray shared:

“It was not a big deal — he had been using it for decades, different doctors had given it to him from all around the world … and they allowed him to sometimes inject the medicine.” 

Murray, who routinely administered it to the singer shared:

 “He was able to push the propofol himself, and the doctors allowed him to do it, and that was OK.” 

According to the documentary, the “Thriller” singer began his drug addiction in 1984 when he suffered second and third-degree burns to his scalp amid a pyrotechnic disaster while filming a Pepsi commercial and was prescribed painkillers to recuperate. Following the incident, Jackson alleged that at that point, the drugs took over his life. In archived audio, he explained:

“I became increasingly more dependent on the painkillers to get me through the days of my tour.”

Jackson confessed:

“I don’t like it … I go through hell touring.”

Things took a turn for the worst in years to follow when Jackson became acquaintances with Hollywood dermatologist Arnold Klein, who died at 70-years-old from natural causes. Arnold Klein admitted to giving the superstar opioid Demerol along with other substances. Reports state that Klein confessed in an interview in 2009 that it was a “routine” for Jackson to get high on Demerol for hours throughout the day. The pop star would take 300 milligrams of Demerol at a time. A source said:

“Dr. Klein was more than happy to oblige and he justified with minor procedures.” 

The source continued:

 “And he did this over and over and over again.”

Jackson’s ex-wife, Debbie Rowe, worked as Arnold Klein’s assistant for years. Debbie Rowe said that Klein was known for doing unethical things while on the clock. Debbie Rowe shared: 

“There were times he would write prescriptions for things that had nothing to do with what we were treating them for.” 

In the documentary, Rowe admitted:

“He would write prescriptions that were not conducive to what a dermatologist would normally write a prescription for.”

She added that her former boss was “a person that you want to hang with because you’re going to be able to get something in return.”

The documentary shares that the Grammy-award winner made up 19 false aliases to collect different drugs. Klein kept a special book to jot down which prescriptions went to each fake identity. Jackson’s plastic surgeon, Dr. Harry Glassman claimed:

“The way that Michael went about getting all these drugs was doctor shopping. He had multiple, different doctors that he was involved with and he would go to ‘Doctor A’ and ask for a sedative, and then he would go to ‘Doctor B’ and may ask for the same one.” 

Dr. Harry Glassman added:

“Michael is responsible, to a great extent, for his own demise, but he certainly had a lot of help from the medical community.”

Murray admitted to caring for Jackson so much and was disappointed that none of that information had ever been shared with him. Murray said:

“He made it look as though I was his sole physician … If I had known that Michael was going to a dermatologist’s office or any doctor and being shot up or dripped up with opioids on a daily basis, there would be a two-step dance. One, he has a problem; two, I’ll take you to where you need to be treated — and if you fail to do that, I am out.”

Murray added:

“Michael Jackson was a drug addict and he was a master at manipulation because I was manipulated by Michael, I did not enable him at any time in his addiction.”

In June of 2009, Jackson passed away at 50-years-old after he was found unresponsive in his Los Angeles home. He suffered cardiac arrest after taking anesthetic propofol, a drug that was routinely administered by Murray. The pop singer’s death was ruled a homicide, and Murray took accountability for it. Murray was convicted of involuntary manslaughter and was sentenced to four years behind bars, only serving two.
