Jackson's Death -- Demerol OD?

6/26/2009 9:54 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Micheal Jackson DemerolThere are reports ... Michael Jackson may have died after getting a Demerol injection.

The Sun is reporting shortly after the injection, Jackson's breathing got "slower and slower until it stopped."

We cannot confirm this story. We can say, however, that after Jackson was badly burned during the filming of a Pepsi commercial, he became addicted to painkillers and ended up at the Betty Ford Clinic. As for the painkillers, there are reports he was given Demerol.

In addition, during the child molestation trial, cops seized syringes and drugs, including Demerol.

We can all take a lesson from Michael, he said it best when he said "It doesn't matter if your black or white" He will be missed by so many, even by those who claim to not have liked him. I whole heartedly believe he was miss-understood. That he was truely a kind soul who led a unique lifestyle none of us can understand. With his money he could do anything, that makes it very hard to do anything at all. Take a lesson from the Beatles and "Let It Be". Goodbye Michael, you were greatly loved. And love is stronger than hate.

WHAT BUGS ME ABOUT THIS POST IS THE FACT THAT THE DOCTOR KNEW THERE WAS AN ANTIDOTE FOR THIS OD OF OF DEMEORL, AND THE MEDICINE WOULD HAVE BEEN OBTAINED AND GIVEN TO COUNTERRACT IT. I THINK HE WAS TRYING TO HIDE THE FACT THAT THIS IS WHAT HAD HAPPENED. I HAVE SEEN EPISODES OF THIS, AND AFTER THE ANTIDOTE WAS GIVEN, THE PERSON WAS AS IF THEY HADN'T HAD A NARCOTIC. WHY HIDE, IT GET THE HELP THE PERSON NEEDS.

Another celeb OD's on drugs, is this a big surprise???? Hell no, but thats all we will here about now for months. He was a great entertainer in his prime, but like so many before him became a junkie. And it will just be awhile before its someone else, will people never learn? He had children, he should have thought of them...And family should have known for years he wasn't right, they should have done something. INTERVENTION!!!!!

WHEN ONE IS SUCCESFULL AND YOURE ON TOP EVERY ONE WANTS TO BRING YOU DOWN, MICHAEL JACKSON TO ME WAS THE GREATEST ENTERTAINER OF ALL TIME. HE WAS A GIANT. i TRULY BELIEVE THAT HE ACTUALLY LOST TOUCH WITH REALITY BUT THE NEGATIVITY ABOUT HIM WILL BE OVERSHOWED BY THE GREAT THINGS HE DID AS A HUMAN BEING. HE HAD AN ENTOURAGE THAT DIDNT HAVE HIS BEST INTEREST, INSTEAD THEY GAVE HIM BAD ADVICE AND TOOK HIS MONEY ...............................BUT MICHAEL I SIT HERE AND CRY , BUT THANK YOU IMMENSLY FOR KEEPINGME ENTERTAINED AS A CHILD AND AS AN ADULT! MY THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS TO YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS!

My deepest sympathy to the Jackson family. Life isn't easy and everyone finds a way to cope with their problems whether they are prescribed or not, healthy or not and everyone dies. At least he didn't have to suffer like Farrah did and die by inches. If it was an accidental drug overdose then Michael will join the ranks of many other artists who self inflicted their own death. His life and lifestyle was his choice and along with that comes the consequences. The media coverage is entirely out of proportion and not until every detail has been exhausted will people finally find something else to feed on.

I am truly sorry that Michael Jackson has passed, I will pray that he finds peace , He was never proven to be a child molester, and he was and forever will be the King of Pop.... I only wish that he would have been proud to have been born a black man , instead he did everything he could to try to make himself look White... He was a very good looking black man but he was a awfull looking White Man... Why couldnt' he just be proud of who he was and what God gave him. That was and is the only thing I ever disliked about Michael Jackson that he wasn't PROUD of the race he was born too. Now he will have to explain it to GOD...... May he rest in Peace .....

For those of you who find it necessary to drag this man in death I wish upon you a horrible death to your spouse, girlfriend, boyfriend, parents or children. When one of those people die, I want you to come back on here and tell us the dirt on their life. You are too stupid to actually take up air on this earth. I don't mince words and will not go back and forth with you. You are not worth the time. The computer makes for a great place for you to hide. Your life is trash and so you find solace in tearing Michael down. May he rest in peace.
