Jackson Allegedly Racked Up Huge Rx Bills

6/26/2009 6:05 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Jackson RX billsOn the subject of Michael Jackson taking too many prescription drugs...

We went back to our files and found a 2007 lawsuit against Jackson for allegedly not paying a pharmacy bill -- grand total: $101,926.66.

Mickey Fine Pharmacy in Beverly Hills sued Jackson, claiming he agreed to "pay the purchase price of any prescription medications filled."

The case was dismissed a month after it was filed -- that typically means there was a settlement.

This was a compounding pharmacy. He very well could have gotten topical medications there that were REALLY expensive.

That said, he was a drug addict, died of a drug overdose, like many others before him, and similarly with enabling behavior, like many others before him. Nothing new.

I think its tacky to post items like this TMZ. I know ppl get off on reading all the sordid details, but this is no different than if you or I died and someone posted all of our outstanding medical bills, or credit card bills. The amount of prescriptions he used is in direct proportion to whatever ailed him (or maybe his level of abuse). We do not know what health issues he had.

If he abused medicines and his ppl/family/attorneys/handlers did not step in it makes his death all the more tragic; because it was avoidable. And from what I have read his family DID try and was very concerned. But MJ was a master at secluding himself so I am sure he did not make it easy. I LOVED him beyond all reason. I am heartbroken. But dont blame his family. Its not like they fed the man morphine. If that is even what he died of. Lets wait and see. And if it is, sigh....

TMZ I know you guys are the number one source of celeb info, but damn. How do you sleep at nite?

So funny..Micheal Jackson's so called haters..come here to post...If you hate him why are you spending all your wasteful time sitting behind a PC to post comments on him? hmmm Seems you are just as bad as the Worthless "Parents" of the poor "abused" kids that, were in fact never abused! hahah if he really molested anyone plz.. no parent would be paid off..

And I'm sorry to inform you freaks..but get this..Many celebs..pay off to avoid a trial!
shall I mention Kobe bryant? ..umm so many stars that are falsely accused just pay to end the nightmate that could
tarnish their name...

As we can all see..all the "FALSE" claims of abuse didnt tarnish Michael..if so..we'd not all be here now mouring the death of a true gift from GOD.

Haters just want attention..I suggest all of us that love micheal..which out number the very few that spew hate..IGNORE them..and "forgive them for they not know they do"

MOLESTER HATER    

All you ppl that are saying let him rest in peace - are the kids that he violated ever going to rest in peace?????????? Give your head a shake - comparing it to drinking or doing drugs - NOT EVEN CLOSE to the pain those monsters cause and as for his family I do hope they can find peace now.

Demerol and skin bleaching kits must be expensive. His family will make up some story to cover-up the $100,000 pharmacy bill like they did about his whitening skin. The little boys of the world can sleep easier tonight.

I don't believe his family could have done anything to control is drug addiction. He was an adult with his own source of income. It's not like on "Intervention" where parents can cut the child off financially or throw the child out of the house or take away their car or cell phone. His family could not set any boundaries with him that would have upset his world. I suppose they could have said they would have nothing to do with him, but, I think he was already so isolated and deeply entrenched in his addiction that given the choice, drugs or family, the drugs would always have won. It's sad but probably true.

For those who say he was addicted to drugs and think it odd he wears face masks, maybe you should do abit of research into his illness and why he lightened his skin.... this is a good place to start!! http://www.medicinenet.com/vitiligo/page4.htm

his song says it all RIP Michael....YOU WILL BE MISSED

Have you seen my Childhood?
I'm searching for the world that I come from
'Cause I've been looking around
In the lost and found of my heart...
No one understands me
They view it as such strange eccentricities...
'Cause I keep kidding around
Like a child, but pardon me...

People say I'm not okay
'Cause I love such elementary things...
It's been my fate to compensate,
for the Childhood
I've never known...

Have you seen my Childhood?
I'm searching for that wonder in my youth
Like pirates in adventurous dreams,
Of conquest and kings on the throne...

Before you judge me, try hard to love me,
Look within your heart then ask,
Have you seen my Childhood?

People say I'm strange that way
'Cause I love such elementary things,
It's been my fate to compensate,
for the Childhood (Childhood) I've never known...

Have you seen my Childhood?
I'm searching for that wonder in my youth
Like fantastical stories to share
But the dreams I would dare, watch me fly...

Before you judge me, try hard to love me.
The painful youth I've had

Have you seen my Childhood....

I disagree that the abuse allegations didn't hurt him. There are millions out there like me who were totally disgusted by them and lost all respect for Michael Jackson.
