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.

To everyone that has listen to the michael jackson song Morphine song- While listening to song on you tube at 1;34 on song you will hear in the background of song a knocking and a voice saying the doctor said but I could not make out the rest of what was said for the music. Is there a message in the song- Has anyone noticed this when listening to the song- If so can you make out what is being said. The title also is strange- blood on the dance floor history in the mix- Did Michael put a little of his history in his music- Remember the childhood song? I like to know if anyone else understands what is being said at 1:34 when listening to the song Morphine.

What a false cappy article - implies a lot - tells one truth - that Jackson took drugs - as we all do - and makes it sound like you discovered something. The reason he took drugs was the flashes of intense pain that comes with auto-immune deseases - something I and those in my family know about personally. May all at TMZ rot in hell for your lack of ethics and morals.

I don't believe this one bit. Now that MJ is dead, every doctor that ever treated him is at risk for getting charged for whatever led to his death. The doctor is just trying to cover his tracks and make it seem like he was the good guy.

The doctor wouldn't stand around and let MJ inject himself. If MJ did anything wrong while injecting himself and anything happened to him, they would trace everything back to the doctor and he would be responsible.

I can understand the intervention part, though. But at the same time, the family says they didn't know his problem was as bad as it is.

Sharpton telling the kids that their daddy was not strange, but it was strange what their daddy had to face. GEEZE! GMAB! Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and Joe Jackson need to take a hike and never come back.

SHARPTON MADE A JACK A$$ OF HIMSELF WITH THAT STATEMENT......SHARPTON IS ONLY CONCERNED WITH BECOMING THE SUCCESSOR TO DR MARTIN LUTHER KING WHICH HE NEVER WILL BE..........HE IS A LEECH AND RACE BAITER.

It had been previously stated that Michael had a fear of needles, which is why he requested to be sedated for even simple procedure so i highly doubt we was self injecting. And as for those who call hima drug addict keep in mind that these were prescription drugs he was'nt a heroin addict or using cocaine like most entertainers. And regardless of anyone else's opinions obviously his children thought very highly of him.

What's really sad is that his brother Marlons question has been answered, not even in death will the media leave him alone. Everyone keeps writing Micheal R.I.P but does anyone know what that means? Let him finally be at peace.

THIS IS A SETUP! IT SEAMS THERE ARE LOTS OF PEOPLE INVOLVED IN THIS WHO REALLY WORKED A LOT OF MONEY FROM MJ. AND NOW THEY ARE TRYING TO SAVE THEIR SELFISH SKIN BECAUSE MJ IS NOT ALIVE TO SAY THE TRUTH SO ITS EASEY TO BREAK IT ON MJ . HOW COULD THEY BY KNOWING THAT THIS THINGS ARE NOT LEGAL STILL GIVE IT TO HIM? ARE THIS DOCTORS TRYING TO SAY THAT NOTHING IS THEIR FAULT AND THEY ARE INOCENT? OR THEY ARE TRYING TO SAY THAT PEOPLE ARE STUPID AND WHATEVER THEY SAY PEOPLE WILL BELIEVE THEM? THERE IS LOT MORE IN THIS THAT WHAT THEY TELL US. I HOPE THE REALL TRUTH WILL COME OUT. THEY TOOK A MAN'S LIFE THIS IS NOT A JK. THIS SO CALLED DOCTORS SHOULD OF KNOWN BETTER THAT TO PRESCRIBE THIS MUCH MEDICINE TO SOMEONE IS HARMFULL NO MATTER WHAT .BUT FOR THEM MONEY WAS MORE IMPORTANT THAN MJ'S HEALTH. THERE IS NO EXCUSE TO WHAT THEY HAVE DONE!

SIMPLY THIS IS A SET UP!

DE DEE you need to relax. How in f^&* name do you know that the Jackson's aren't a loving family? Because
they didn't disclose their personal matters to the ever ignorant and inquring public> WAKE UP-it's all the damn
prying all the comments the judging the delving the expectations that KILLED him,....................we all inadvertantly
had a hand in Michael's death!!! Any one of us who couldnt get enough who were curious or condemning or
accusatory. How was he expected to act normal with a billions prying eyes? I would LOVE to see how you would
withstand the enormous pressure he was under...........regardless of how much talent and damn money he had
because apparently it isn't helping him now..............RIP Michael, terribly misunderstood

Neecee Brown: It doesn't matter whether it was heroin or demoral or Tylenol. He was a drug abuser and an addict. Do you honestly think it's better to overdose on prescription meds or heroin?
