Jackson's Demanding Personality On Trial

4/5/2010 10:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

It sounds crazy, but Michael Jackson's Coca-Cola addiction may become a building block in Dr. Conrad Murray's legal strategy.

TMZ broke the story that Dr. Murray's defense will be that Michael Jackson caused his own death by pumping a lethal dose of Propofol into his own body during the time the doctor was out of the room.

Sources familiar with the defense strategy tell us one of the missions is to show that Michael Jackson was a demanding celebrity who wanted what he wanted when he wanted it, even if it posed a danger to himself.

One of the ways the defense will prove its point is with the famous soft drink. Jackson consumed massive quantities of Coca-Cola, knowing full well it was laden with caffeine and would make it next to impossible to fall asleep.

Our sources say the defense has numerous examples of situations where Jackson hyped himself up with caffeine from soda and then used drugs -- including Propofol -- as the ultimate sleeping solution.

The upshot -- Jackson was a guy who wanted instant gratification ... so the notion that he would wake up when Dr. Murray was out of the room, become frustrated and self-medicate with Propofol is consistent with his personality.

IT SEEMS MJ IS STILL A CASH COW FOR THE MEDIA EVEN IN DEATH. OBVIOUSLY THEY ARE DOING THEIR BEST TO MAKE UP WHATEVER JUICY STORY THEY CAN COME UP WITH.......I DO THINK MJ ATE WAY TOO MUCH CANDY WITH COULDN'T HAVE HELPED HIM SLEEP, BUT HIS ADDICTION TO MANY DIFFERENT TYPES OF PRESCRIPTIONS IS WHAT KILLED HIM ALONG WITH THE INCOMPETENCE OF A ONE DR. MURREY. IN THE END MURRAY WILL TAKE THE BLAME BECAUSE HE WAS IRRESPONSIBLE AT BEST IN HIS CARE. THE FACT HE TOOK PRECIOUS TIME TO HIDE THE MEDS INSTEAD OF DIALING 911 IS REASON ENOUGH FOR HIM TO NEVER PRACTICE MEDICINE AGAIN. WHAT ABOUT THE OATH MURRAY??? FIRST DO NO HARM!!! BUT BOTTOM LINE, NO IT WASN'T ADDICTION TO SODA THAT KILLED MJ OR HIS DEMANDING PERSONALITY. I DON'T CARE WHAT HE SAID TO MURRAY. MURRAY STILL HAD A RESPONSIBILITY TO PROTECT THE PATIENT. ALSO, JUST A SIDE NOTE, THERE WERE MANY DOCTORS THAT TURNED MICHAEL DOWN FOR THESE CRAZY DRUGS HE WAS LOOKING FOR. IT'S MURRAY'S PROBLEM THAT HE GAVE IN. HE NEVER SHOULD HAVE DONE THAT. TOUGH LESSON!

. 407. @Tellit...please do not speak as if you know Michael Jackson or his sex life. Perhaps you don't realize that it makes you look very foolish. Perhaps you get off on belittling others, and one has to wonder what is so wrong with YOUR life that you felt the need and/or had the time to post that ridiculous comment #398. You must be a very lonely person & I'm sorry for that.

Seriously do you know how stupid that statement is,you do not own the name tellit or Tellit or anything in this forum.They might tell you they are investigating it and then they laugh at you if you seriously believe that.Do you think they really care if someone is using umm.... your name...I think they have better things to do besides that.

Rubbish !! Another lie ! Michael could not wakeup after Murray administered Propofol 25mg (he told). In the body of Michael were others sedatives, Midazolam, Ativan etc. In combination with these sedatives, if Michael “ wakeup, he must be out of control, groggy, “ he could not reach a bottle of propofol to inject himself, and after that to drop the bottle. The fact is that with all the medications he admitted giving to Michael on top of the propofol, there was no way that man awoke and was coherent enough to administer more of this anesthetic to himself. As we learned, paramedics found a drip IV in the leg of Michael. How could he wakeup, walk around to find a bottle of Propofol, inject himself, and capable lying in bed, all these with a drip IV in leg ? This doctor think that we all are idiots? Propofol knocks out a patient in less 20 seconds. Murray, had changed his statements 5 times … when he will tell the truth ? And we learned too, that his mistress “ Baby Mama” knows more about Michael`s death.

This story is completely bogus. Michael Jackson was allergic to caffeine, thus didn't drink soda (even when he advertised for Pepsi). More TMZ BS.

@Tellit, "wacko jacko" AND ALL THE HATERS: YOU SAD, SAD PEOPLE!

let me see.....hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

how many millions have YOU donated to charity???
how many lives have YOU saved??
how many people have YOU inspired??
How many smiles did YOU put on people's faces??
How many records have YOU broken??
in other, more simpler terms: what have YOU done in your SAD and PATHETIC LIVES that would be worth any recognition??.................. oh, why don't i answer that for you: NADA, NILL, NOTHING!!
what a surprise.....................NOT!

no wonder ALL you do is hide behind you little computers to BELIITLE, BAD-MOUTH AND ACCUSE a person who HAS ACHIEVED (& still continues to) MORE THAN YOU EVER WILL, AND IS BETTER THAN YOU WILL EVER BE.

NEWSFLASH - MJ IS:
- INSANELY TALENDED
- BREATHTAKINGLY GORGEOUS
- AND UNDENIABLY INNOCENT (OMG, :O there does exist GREEDY people in this world, who are willing to taint someone’s name FOR MONEY :O)

HE IS A TRUE HUMANITARIAN, WHO HAS CHANGED THE WORLD (& you know it too, btw ;) so, what have YOU done??

BLINDED BY YOUR JEALOUSY??? LOL

a bit of advice: you ought to start looking up to HIM FOR INSPIRATION; maybe then, u will start to contribute something USEFUL to this society, and do sumthing actually WORTH living for.

OUR LOVE (the fans, lovers and supports of this BEAUIFUL HUMAN BEING WE CALL MJ) OUTWEIGHS YOUR POINTLESS HATRED.

LOOK IN THE MIRROR..........SERIOUSLY!!
