Jackson's Maid -- He Binged On Drugs

7/14/2009 7:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael JacksonOne of Michael Jackson's former housekeepers told law enforcement the singer was often in such bad shape from drugs, his eyes would roll back in his head.

We've obtained documents from the Santa Barbara County Sheriff Department's 1993 investigation into allegations of child molestation. Kristina Fournier told deputies back then ... she saw syringes while she was employed at Neverland. Deputies asked her if she ever saw Jackson inject himself with a hypodermic needle -- she said no.

Fournier told deputies she was aware Jackson was under the influence of drugs and "under a doctor's care." Fournier said she saw doctors "come and go" at Neverland.

And Fournier said, on the subject of Jackson's drug addiction, "I think he had good periods and bad periods, and when he had a bad period, he had a bad period. Then he would get off (referring to drugs) and then it would start again."

Fournier said it was "well-known" among the Neverland staff that Jackson had a drug problem -- "Yes, and people would say, his eyes were rolling in the back of his head and he wouldn't know what he was talking about."

I wonder if he was so whacked out on the drugs if he even remembers fondling the children..... probably half his issue.

His employees saw everything, but were blinded by the money and still are. It's easy to accuse someone who is half of the time of the world because he is doped. If he's then playing innocence in interviews and the court room and just answering 'I don't know' then it is because he really doesn't know. Give people drugs and they do crazy things like overpaying employees and giving their money away. Do you really think Michael is such a financial idiot to go minus 400 million dollars ? Buying antique, yeah right, where is all that antique then ? The only antique I saw is the antique he bought in Bashir's interview and the most of this antique he had already. On those Neverland photos I only saw the Bashir's interview antique.

Half of the things that people are saying now are false. I belive hehad problems, with drugs but not that much as people are saying.Lookat his kids, they said Michael was the best daddy in the world,idunno if he would be in condition to care for them if he was so on drugs. So stop posting crap, have respect for his children and for his family!

at this moment in time everybody has something to say about Michael and drugs, but when he was alive nobody spoke, i think that a witness that does nothing is as guilty as the perpetrator, don't you? The should remember that KARMA is a bitch and will bite them in the ars!!!!

Yeah ok Katie... MJ never had a drug problem.... that's why he died.... from a drug overdose.

And I'm sure his kids absolutely loved MJ.... he let their friends sleep over whenever he wanted.... and whatever they wanted he could buy for them...... meanwhile he was too off his face to be keeping an eye on them so they could do whatever they want.

Just because the kids said they loved him as a "dad' doesn't mean he was a good one.

Jackson was a grown man, but that does not by any stretch of the imagination absolve Doctors from their duty of care, which is first to DO NO HARM. A plethora of doctors did exactly that. They knowingly provided a man who had been in rehab with powerful, addictive medications. The plastic surgeons who worked on Jackson should have referred him for counseling, not more surgeries. Dr Murray administered drugs that should have only been given in a hospital and to compound matters was not even an anesthesiologist. The pharmacies were owed huge bills by Jackson, which means they knew that all those prescriptions under false names were his, since they were billed to him.

All these parties hold responsibility. These people are breached some serious ethical issues. A lot of you say that it was his own responsibility, what if it was your family? These healthcare providers are held to a higher standard. It is different than some questionable actions of an assistant, bodyguard or friend. If we can't trust doctors to care for us when we can't make the right decisions for ourselves, we need to be extremely worried. Money should not be able to override the doctors responsibility to act in our best interests.

Why is it such a surprise to everyone that MJ was a drug addict? For the past 15 years or so you could tell he was a drug addict! And a plastic surgeon addict, etc. I don't understand why people are so shocked. Even his own family knew he had a drug problem. They tried to intervene more than once but MJ wasn't ready to get clean.
