Joe Jackson -- Dr. Murray Held MJ Drug Intervention

8/25/2010 12:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Joe Jackson has re-filed his wrongful death lawsuit against Dr. Conrad Murray -- and now claims Dr. Murray and AEG staged an intervention with Michael Jackson one week before he died.

According to the new documents, Dr. Murray and representatives from AEG went to Michael Jackson's home on N. Carolwood Drive on June 18, 2009 -- and said they were there for a "drug intervention."

The suit claims during the meeting AEG demanded Michael "stop seeing Dr. Arnold Klein and stop taking the drugs Klein gave to him." They wanted Michael to "take only the medications being given to him by Conrad Murray."

According to the suit ... the intervention was intended to get Michael to adhere to Dr. Murray's drug regimen so he could get more sleep.  AEG thought Michael was missing rehearsals because of medications from Dr. Klein and other doctors.  

The suit also alleges that in the days leading up to Michael's death it was apparent he was getting weaker and weaker, at times seeming "drugged and disoriented."

The upshot of the lawsuit -- the intervention and general concern over MJ's drug use is proof Dr. Murray had no business administering Propofol and other drugs to the singer and that Dr. Murray knew he was playing with fire.

so sick of the so self righteous people who come on here, condemning Jackson. Maybe he did do these things you mentioned above...maybe he was trying to find a quick fix so he could sleep, function, rehearse and get ready to throw himself back into the ring so he could perform 50 frckn shows, ya think? the weight of the world on his shoulders since the age of 5 years old.

I have no right to judge Michael Jackson because I have not walked in his shoes.But his death is tragic and it could have been prevented.I wish the bad people around him had left him alone.

MJ did not deserve this. He died as he lived. ALONE. Others get to die surrounded by family and friends but not MJ who had the entire world mourn him but no one around, not even the doctor he hired. How sad.

@289 Vana how can you say Michael didn't believe he had a drug addiction when half the world saw him admitting it on TV and admitting going to rehab???????

@306 Back in the mid 90's he did admit a drug addiction problem and went to rehab at the insistence of then wife Lisa Marie, what I speak of is more recent. I don't think a decade and a half later he wanted to admit he had a drug problem AGAIN. He had no wife to insist he go. And it was mentioned at the last family intervention that he stated that he didn't have a drug problem. In order to be cured, you have to admit you have a problem and MJ would not admit that. This is why all those interventions failed.

Admitting it meant going to rehab! AGAIN!!
