Michael Jackson Sells

8/4/2009 10:14 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Jackson SellsThe new documents in the Michael Jackson estate case show the special administrators of the estate expect to haul in money in the "high eight figures" for merchandising and other Jackson-related stuff.

The docs mention the $5.5 million the special administrators already collected from Dr. Tohme Tohme. In addition, the administrators have collected "millions of dollars of tangible personal property throughout the country, including memorabilia and art."

The docs say the special administrators are deep in negotiations to market all things Jackson.

The docs claim the special administrators have resolved three lawsuits.

Your statement is correct! Mike knew that his will would be challenged...Don't you think?? So the people on his team had to be strong and not push-overs of suckers of sorts.

Oh absolutely. He was smart enough not to put any family member as an executor. He also put in the no contest clause, and if contesting, would not get anything. That means he suspected that someone named in the will would contest.....his family

The lack of sleep was because he was rehearsing and he has said in past interviews that after concerts or rehearsal it was hard for him to relax enough to get sleep.

Michael has complained of insomnia his whole adult life. Also, when you take a large amount of opiates, as he did, one of the side effects is insomnia and restlessness.

OBVIOUSLY most of the Propofol addicts are anesthesiologists and doctors.

“It’s not a subtle drug,” Dr. Earley said. “It’s not like fentanyl or narcotics, where you can be slightly inebriated on the drug and even show up for work. Most of the time, you inject it and pass out.”

Talbott has seen a growing number of propofol abusers over the last two years, Dr. Earley said. Almost all of them have been anesthesiologists; the majority appear to be women. Many have admitted to a history of psychological or physical trauma, such as rape or childhood sexual abuse—which may help explain the drug’s appeal, Dr. Earley said. “What it’s best at is why it’s used in anesthesia—making people unconscious. It’s somewhat dissociative, and can lead to an out-of-body sensation.”

“Propofol is a drug that in a sense doesn’t get you high,” said Omar S. Manejwala, MD, associate medical director at the William J. Farley Center at Williamsburg Place, an addiction treatment clinic in Virginia that, like Talbott, also focuses on physicians. “It blocks out the world,”

It's not a street drug. The abusers of Diprivin is mostly anesthesiologists themselves. They have the access. And death rate for the abusers is approximately 40%.

Can you name anyone Hollywood or otherwise that has a know addiction association to this drug (or has OD'd from it)?? And furthermore, unless you have some serious cash flow or medical access just how do you obtain it....

In his experience, Dr. Manejwala said, nearly every propofol addict started injecting to overcome persistent insomnia. That aspect of the medication fits neatly with the link both Drs. Manejwala and Earley have observed between propofol abuse and a history of trauma. “One of the hallmark symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder [PTSD] is hyperarousal. Folks with PTSD want to block that out,” Dr. Manejwala said.

What’s puzzling, experts said, is the strength of the connection. “I don’t know of any other drug where the perceived incidence of trauma, particularly of sexual trauma [in abusers], is so high,” Dr. Manejwala said. “It’s really quite remarkable.”

In fact, Dr. Earley suspects that the psychological factors that push certain people to misuse propofol may also underlie the difficulties they face in overcoming the addiction.

“I think we’re going to learn more about how to treat it, but there’s a window of time when our skill set is not what it could be,” he said. “We’re just now on the learning curve of figuring out how to treat these folks.”
