Jackson Self-Injecting Demerol, Doctor Says

7/10/2009 1:08 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Jackson Self-Injecting Demerol,A doctor who treated Michael Jackson claimed the singer self-injected Demerol into his system.

We've combed through tens of thousands of pages of the official file for the 2005 molestation trial. In the Santa Barbara County Sheriff's notes, a member of Jackson's security detail -- retired L.A. County Sheriff's deputy Michael Laperruque -- said some doctors were trying to get Jackson off of Demerol, and that one of the doctor's in Santa Barbara "was upset with JACKSON because he had been self-injecting."

Laperruque told detectives he had picked up Jackson's prescriptions for the singer, usually under the name Chris Carter. Carter was one of Jackson's bodyguards.

Laperruque also told detectives one time when he was at Neverland his job was to keep Jackson's family out because they were planning an intervention.

this is the man who sheila jackson lee wants to put through a bill and had a moment of silence for? i feel sorry for those kids because they are already messed up from living with a drug addict. we are living in a very mixed up world. where we idolize failed people and bash good and decent people........it says in the bible at the end of the world that good becomes bad and bad become good.

Man, he was a dope head, case closed! When someone O.D."s it's over. Everyone new he was an train wreck looking for a place to happen.
I think this is what he wanted, to go out with a smile on his face. Man, let it go, Please!!

Is there anything this guy was not addicted to? How in the hell did he live so long? What a complete waste of space. The only thing he was good for was keeping the drug companies in business.

I just keep reading this lately that his family was planning an intervention few years ago, as they were alarmed with Michael's state. What if all this is THE intervention of his family? He was so on the edge, maybe they thought these concerts gonna kill him and they intervened. The memorial was so staged, their attidude was so staged during the memorial...

BTW, it is being reproted by Radaronline that MJ's body is being held at Berry Gordy's crypt in Forrest Lawn until the family decides where to bury him.

True? Decide for yourself. But makes sense to me.

Yeah and just to think this all started from the molestation trials in which he was framed and acquitted of. How sad. He admitted then that he was going into re-hab for pain killers. One thing I hope happens is Michael's vindication and that Evan Jordy Chandler family admits they lied to get money.

I don't belive in this, It's sad that TMZ is bashing Micheal in every possible way. Stop it already!. It's perfectly clear from the rehearsal videos nothing wrong was with Micheal!. And how about to infrom us s,omething about his unrealesed songs?, Something about his children?.

Since the Memorial it seems that we have not heard one word about anything other than the drugs and custody. What happened to all this praise about his talent and his music. The drugs are really disturbing. Injecting himself when he was so terrified of needles, yes. But really not that surprizing. The man was on drugs. Bigtime. It's very sad but a fact and there is nothing they can do to hide it. Why didn't they try harder to save him when he was still alive?

If I lived in LA, I would be a little concerned about the slow response of the DA's office in bringing charges forth. It's as if the discovery of the distribution of these extremly dangerous narcotics is more common to the authorities than we realize. why haven't they charged 1 person in a crime yet? I have seen enough evidence myself to conclude that NUMEROUS crimes have been commited by these enablers. An investigation should not take this long.
