Famed MJ Lawyer -- Michael Was NOT Suicidal!

1/3/2011 8:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The mega-lawyer who successfully defended Michael Jackson in his molestation case is coming out swinging at Dr. Murray's defense team -- blaming MJ's death squarely on Murray because the singer was "not suicidal."

0103_mesereau_video_msnbc
Thomas Mesereau went on MSNBC today -- and stated, "The defense lawyers have to do something and what they're gonna try and do is reflect attention away from their client and onto Michael Jackson."

He adds, "The reality is Michael Jackson was not suicidal, he was not self-destructive in the way they're trying to say, and hopefully their defense will not succeed."

For the record, Mesereau's "suicidal" statement is not accurate -- because according to our sources, the defense will argue that Michael MAY have accidentally killed himself after trying to self-administer Propofol ... but he was not suicidal.

Perhaps Mesereau's strongest comment -- "I'm sorry that the defense is going to have to bash Michael Jackson to try and divert attention from their guilty client."

Dr Murray needed the cash and knew MJ was a weird drug addict. He used poor judgment by accepting him as a client. MJ was going to die soon anyway.

well far from that Murrey is not guilty but in fact drugs were the substitue to MJ for litte boys
police reports has proven MJ is gay and loved to take *** in his ass, thats why they found sperm from 2 other male persons mixed with his facal on his mattres during Chamblers investigation

MJ was a drug addict, so you know, he didn't much care if he lived or died. Addicts more often than not don't get it that they're one overdose away from death.

I do not believe for one second that MJ woke up and injected himself. Murray was desperate enough for cash to assist MJ,even though Murray KNEW it was illegal and extremely dangerous. So IMO he's at the very most guilty of manslaughter, possibly negligent homicide. But MJ was an addict so he bears most of the responsibility for his own death. He could have stopped doping at any time, even if it meant rehab and embarrassment. I got sober sixteen years ago, my husband got sober twenty-two years ago, my mom thirty, etc etc. No it wasn't comfortable, it was embarrassing, but we did it, so can these stupid celebrities.

Kinda like how Mesereau bashed the molestation victims to try and divert attention from HIS guilty client A.K.A. Michael Jackson.

The pot calling the kettle black.

Michael Jackson is the most guilty in BOTH of these cases.

I am surprised they are even going to try this defense. It is IMPOSSIBLE for ANYONE to self administer propofol. I wonder where Dr. Murray bought his doctor degree, maybe there is some medical university in USA that teaches its students to administer anesthesia on their patients at home with no proper apparatus

EVERYONE knows MJ was a hypochondriac who wanted to live FOREVER.

The defense is a joke.

SONY/AEG START THINKING ABOUT A NEW PLAN CAUSE YOUR PLAN A IS FAILING BADLY. NOBODY IS BUYING YOUR CONCOCTED STORY ONLY THE USUAL DUMB ASSES ON HERE THE OH WELLS AND COMPANY WOULD BUY THAT CRAP, WE KNOW MICHAEL WAS KILLED BECAUSE OF THE ATV SONY CATALOGUE AND THATS A FACT. ITS MURDER AND NOT SECOND DEGREE MANSLAUGHTER!!! THINK THE CIA SHOULD STEP IN THERE AND START DIGGING UP SOME NASTY STUFF ON THE MAIN PLAYERS THAT ARE REALLY ENVOLVED WITH THE KILLING OF MICHAEL J. JACKSON, MURRAY IS JUST THE LITTLE GUY. DON'T BE FOOLED AS USUAL AND BELIEVE THE FORCED FED BULL**** STORY ABOUT DRUG ADDICT - IT AIN'T TRUE, THAT'S WHAT THEY LIKE YOU TO BELIEVE TO MAKE A CLEAN GET AWAY. BILLIONS OF DOLLARS ARE ENVOLVED HERE NOT JUST THE MEAGER 750 000 THOUSAND THAT YOU KEEP HEARING ABOUT. THAT CATALOGUE IS WORTH 7 BILLION DOLLARS AS OF TODAY AND RISING. SONY DRIED OUT MICHAEL FINANCIALLY OVER YEARS FORCING HIM TO TAKE OUT LOANS WITH SUCH HIGH INTEREST RATES FROM SONY THAT ALL THE ROYALTIES ARE PAYING BACK THE INTEREST ONLY. BUT NOW THEY WANT THE 50 PERCENT MJ SHARE AND HIS OWN CATALOGUE. YOU WATCH OUT PEOPLE YOU'LL BE SURPRISED!!!
