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.

Sad but true... MJ was a Junkie..... It happens all the time..

He just OD'ed , But Who gave Him the Med ??

The reports of where He was in the house have changed since that first day..
I heard at First that MJ was in the Living room when He went down... His Son thought He was playing..
Also Joe was first reported to be in las Vages. But The Guards say that Joe was at MJ's the Night
before His death, The guards say that MJ was Upset that joe was there and told them close the
gates and not let him in.. But he some how he got in...

So what REALLY happen .... Joe wants a third Autopsy ,,, WHY !!!!!

He should have let Janet perform an intervention! She would have paid good money to get to him. Another complicit aide? Did he care more about being close to a global icon, or about the life of a human being? At least Janet cared. Ok MJ would have been humiliated by a conservatorship - he would be alive though. In UK we can have people committed if there is evidence of horrific abuse like this. Dreadful, dreadful position for Janet to be in, poor Michael.

thanks for the correction dee dee...what is amazing is that the LAPD knew about all these drugs since 2002 and nothing was done back then...seems like the family tried but he fenced them out. ...it is so sad but maybe he wanted it to end like it did....

Yeah, junkies make GREAT fathers. It's plain that they were being completely raised by nannies throughout their lives.

i guess i dont understand why his family, his attorneys, etc....why didnt some seek conservatorship or guardianship over him...he is apparently stoned out (incapcitaed because of his addiction) of his mind and unable to properly help himself. Natalie Cole's mother did it for her and it saved her life. Britany Spears father did it for her. When an attempt at intervention.failed..why didnt some advise the family about these options? Like the attorney who kept warning them this day would come....why didnt someone seek these options out? The man didnt have to die a slave to dr's and promoters...who doled out drugs like candy. how incredibly sad. no one, not even an addict should be allowed to destroy themselves...no dr demanded that he be hospitalized...nothing. how very sad an existence.

TMZ, is there NOTHING going on other than MJ's untimely death/ Seriously? Apparently, the day Mj died was also the day other news stories died as well.

How on the hell did he live so long? He killed himself because no way was he able to do 50 concerts and he knew it.He even said so when he first met his dancers. He said 'I don't know if I can do it'. Hooked on all this stuff and doing 50 concerts get a grip people. He was terrified and killed himself.

lawry, from France    

Poor guy MJ, he had to become junkie, due to his childhood, diseases, depression, dysmorphophobia and media pressure.
I understand all that, i know how hard it is to face it, & suppose his child were protected by all the nurses etc.

Here in france we've been told Mr Joe Jackson cries for murder, is that true?

And just for joke, Laperruque is from the french "la perruque" and means "the wig".

(sorry for my english, i'm french, as you understand)
