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 sounds crazy to put Michael Jackson’s personality on trial. “MJ was a demanding celebrity who wanted what he wanted when he wanted it, even if it posed a danger to himself. Jackson was a guy who wanted instant gratification.” The things media portray him was far from the truth!!! Michael Jackson in ‘reel and real’ life is perfectionist, he doesn’t care how much time and money he spent in making just one album just to get ‘perfectionism’ he wants. If he’s the kind of person who wants instant gratification, he will not spent ‘months, years’ just to finish ONE ALBUM!!! THESE THINGS ARE JUST ALLEGATIONS!!!

If this man was that stupid, he wouldn't need Murray now would he?

The mans autopsy report says he did not self administer.

The dumbest think Michael Jackson did was trust Murray.

Addicted to Coca-Cola? Please! MJ was a health food nut. He didn't even let his kids eat and drink junk foods. MJ only drank natural juices, no sodas. His cook, Kai Chase even said that he only wanted natural juice straight from the blender every morning.

Murray's lawyers are such jerks! LOL!

They are grasping at straws. The doctor was negligent. Michael hired him and paid him all that money to insure his health and well being, not to kill himself. Wish I could sit on that jury.
