Lloyd's of London -- Overdose Clause?

7/3/2009 3:41 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

MIchael JacksonA spokesperson for Lloyd's of London tells us she's never heard of a case where her company has insured someone for a drug overdose.

AEG, the company that was promoting Jackson's London concerts, claimed yesterday the policy it took out from Lloyd's did not cover death from natural causes but did cover overdoses.

Louise Shield -- the head of communications for Lloyd's of London -- tells us such a policy is "odd" and that she's never heard the company insuring for drug overdoses.

What's more -- Shield says the company typically requires a "medical assessment" .... a physical before the policy is written.

As we first reported, Jackson's body had dozens of injection sites in various places. So the question -- how could a policy be issued with clear evidence of a problem?

Shield would not comment on the policy, and found it strange AEG discussed it publicly. She's not saying if overdoses were covered or not.

Very very shady!!!! This is almost like a husband taking out a million dollar policy on his wife to cover falling off a cruise ship. Then she just so happens to fall overboard and the husband was no where to be found. Until time to collect. If any of these doctors or anyone connected to them took this policy out I would get many red flags going off... Sounds like murder to collect insurance!!!

When Debbie Rowe got into trouble with Michael the second set of allegations had been made against him, and he was more reticent about letting her see the kids. She became a little apprehensive and decided she might need to file for custody of the kids just in case Michael was convicted, and just in case her kids were being exposed to things that they should not have been exposed to at their age. She stated she didn't know if something was going on with Michael but she doubted it, thinking instead maybe some of the always changing employees might have done something . After those making the allegations were paid off and the trial abandoned Michael was mad about what Debbie had done and thereafter she rarely heard from Michael and he did not allow her much contact. Excuses were made or he would not take her calls. Prior to her filing for custody Michael had made frequent phone reports on the kids progress and arranged with her to see the kids. Debbie said Michael loved Lisa Marie Presley very deeply and when she left him he never got over the hurt. Lisa Marie and her mother ,vampire Priscilla, were every bit the blood suckers. The Jackson family has nothing on the two Presley women. Lisa's divorce settlement started Michael's money troubles. He appeared able to pay off those making the molestation allegations with little to spare, and Lisa's heavy demands put him heavily into debt. Debbie Rowe said she loved Michael but he considered her nothing more than a very good friend because he was so consumed with thoughts of Lisa Marie he could not share himself with anyone else. In some of the pictures of the two together Michael does appear to be enthralled with Lisa Marie. Debbie said she wanted to have his children so she agreed to live in her own apartment, continue working at her job,and see him and her babies several times each week, and sometimes longer. She said she loved Michael and was proud to have his children and had hopes they would eventually become a conventional family living together in love. It didn't happen partly because Michael lost his trust in her when she filed for custody of the kids. Debbie said she feared them being taken into state custody or given to the Jackson family, and she believed she was doing the right thing by filing for custody, Michael viewed her as a traitor and he rarely spoke to her again. She left the impression the children are their biological children. Maybe, because Lisa Marie Presley said they had a real marriage, sex and all.

I posted the prior message to the wrong site . Anyway, I cannot believe any insurance company makes insurance available for drug overdoses. If that is, indeed, so all of Hollywood and much of the remainder of the country should take out a policy. Having such a policy is in a way giving license to use. Very strange, there must have been some under the table dealing if this turns out to be true.

Is it possible that they added the clause because they knew Michael Jackon was a drug addict? Maybe they just put that in there in the event he couldn't make it through the tour. Still shady that the head of communications would have not heard of that type of clause. To me it seems plausible that an overdose clause would be instated given many musicians use drugs and many are full blown addicts.

I just seen the video on the right for "The last encounter we had with Michael Jackson". What the f**k is wrong with those people. Michael, Michael, Can you still moonwalk Michael? F**king idiotic people. I think they are the ones on drugs. Poor man cannot even get in a car in peace without people flocking to him and bothering him. God, F**king annoying people! Should have ran over them. Michael was so kind to not get an attitude with them. If that was me, I would have been like you stupid ass.

In reply to haven here @ 4:28PM, I agree with you that I don't think Michael ever got over Lisa Marie. Look also at the time line, Lisa Marie had her twins in October 2008, just speculation, but maybe that started putting him over the edge because he always wanted kids with her. She said no. Similiar to him saying that he was distraught when Lisa Marie married her first husband because he always felt it should have been him marrying her. Michael had a crush on her since he was 17 yrs. old and even sought her out when she got a littler older, but nothing came of it.

I hear conflicting things about Michael's love life and sexuality, but if you look at the photos of Michael and Lisa Marie when they were married and a few after they were divorced, he does look like he is in love and I have never seen him like that in other photos with women he was dating.

@ poster 46, Marie. My Mom is thinking the same exact thing about him. If he is really dead or not. She thinks he could have possibly faked his own death. If that is true, In time you will see clues given by Michael to let the world know he is still here. At this point, I am hoping that would be true. I can't see a world without him in it. Either way though, It really is so sad because if it were true or he faked his death, We would never seem him anymore. I would still rather have him breathing, In any kind of way!
