Coroner Gets More Jackson Doctor Files

7/31/2009 3:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael JacksonWe've learned a doctor who was reprimanded for prescribing drugs to Janet Jackson using aliases has been asked to turn over his Michael Jackson-related medical files to the L.A. County Coroner's office.

Law enforcement sources tell us the coroner has subpoenaed Dr. Allan Metzger's files. As we first reported, Metzger was reprimanded by the Medical Board of California for allegedly writing fraudulent prescriptions for Janet Jackson, "using a false/fictitious name."

At the time we broke the story, Metzger would not say if he used aliases for Michael Jackson when he treated him. But we've now learned Dr. Metzger's files were labeled Omar Arnold/Michael Jackson. There is nothing illegal about using an alias if the patient's real name is also used. We're told Dr. Metzger turned the files over a week ago.

When we spoke with Dr. Metzger on July 5, he told us "I have not treated him [Jackson] for ages." At the time he told us he last spoke with Jackson by phone in April and talked about the tour, his children, nutrition and hydration. We specifically asked Dr. Metzger if he talked to Jackson about Propofol and he said he had not.

But now Dr. Metzger's lawyer, Harland Braun, says Dr. Metzger actually went to Jackson's house in April and the singer specifically asked about using Propofol at home, and the doctor advised against it. Braun told us he believed Jackson was asking Dr. Metzger to provide the drug to Jackson but the doctor declined.

Braun says Metzger wrote notes about the meeting in his medical charts, despite what Dr. Metzger told us -- that he hadn't been Jackson's doctor "for ages." Braun didn't know when Dr. Metzger wrote his notes.

This is so sad to know that MJ was a drug addict to this level. He had to beg doctors for prescription medication!
I only hope that doctors don't give away such prescription in return for the big bucks in the future and therefore kill the patient internally!

"406. While I agree with your statement that all too often people are not held accountable for their own actions and that there is always a scapegoat, I must say that your take on a man who you do not know, have not walked in the shoes of, nor have the ability to understand the complexities of a celebrity life - is just as cold and calculating as those who took from him over and over again until there was nothing more to take.

“Stop judging that you may not be judged; for with what judgment you are judging, you will be judged; and with the measure that you are measuring out, they will measure out to you."
-Matthew 7:1-2

How can you call this man 'nothing more than a common junkie'? Did you happen to live/work/know him? As you hide behind the veil of anonymity of the Internet, you sit in judgment over a person who's lifestyle you could never begin to understand.
It is important to remember that Michael Jackson was a human being above all else. He was of flesh and blood. He was both wicked and good. (As all of us are). But, the one thing he wasn't was "common" anything.
Michael was reared from childhood to perform. It is all the man knew - it became a 'human nature' just like it is for you or I to brush our teeth before going to bed.
This is a different situation from someone who is abused as a child and turns to (or over-comes/abstains from) drugs and alcohol. The life of a celebrity is to be constantly under the microscope - everything you do criticized, critic'd, analyzed and put on display in whatever subjective light is deemed 'most inflammatory' or 'most flattering'. And it was not something Michael sought out on his own - he was born into a family who was trying to become famous.

Now I am not saying that his Rx addition is excusable, but it is understandable with all the enablers, pains, stress, allegations, financial issues, family drama, etc - and because of that, forgiveness and empathy should be given to him. Those who aided in his addition, for whatever their own reasons (star-struck, greed, etc) should be held accountable. That, to me, is the bottom line.

And the hate/opinions in which people feel the need to express and direct at this man, who's done absolutely nothing to them (personally) ... should be owned up to as well.
I often wonder, if those who still accuse a man of a crime after he's been acquitted in a court of law either have a shame or a sin they are misdirecting.

Can't blame AEG for covering their assets. They got saddled with one drug addicted loser of a celebrity and his corporate welfare addicted family.

Rx to Mj

Rx to Janet

Just how many "addicts" are there in this family.

They (the Jacksons) make me puke when I see them in total denial when it comes to all the drug abuse going on within them.
