MJ Pushed Dr. To Improperly Give Son Anesthesia

1/13/2011 1:06 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned ... Michael Jackson subjected one of his children to the same risky medical treatment that eventually killed him.

Sources tell TMZ ... Michael cajoled a Las Vegas dentist into performing a procedure on Blanket in July, 2008, that involved putting the boy under anesthesia for 2 hours in a dental office that did not have the necessary permit for anesthesia.

TMZ has obtained internal documents from the Nevada Board of Dental Examiners, which detail Michael Jackson's interactions with Dr. Mark Tadrissi.   According to the documents, Tadrissi told Michael he couldn't perform the procedure on Blanket because he lacked the permit.

According to the Board's investigator, Michael didn't want to hear about permits and told the doctor, "Have an anesthesiologist do whatever type of sedation required."

Tadrissi capitulated and performed the 2 hour procedure on Blanket ... who was 6 years old at the time.  An anesthesiologist had Blanket sedated the entire time.

Now here's where it gets mysterious.  The Board -- which learned of Tadrissi's actions after Michael died -- initiated a disciplinary action against Tadrissi  for allowing Blanket to be anesthetized in his office.  The Board also went after Dr. Tadrissi for allowing Michael to receive Propofol in his office, without the proper permit.

Dr. Tadrissi struck a deal with the Board in 2010 in which he was sanctioned.  In a draft of the report, the Board based the sanctions on his treatment of both Blanket and Michael.  But in the final version of the report Blanket was taken completely out -- there is no mention of the boy or his treatment.

One source connected with the investigation tells TMZ ... pressure was put on the Board to omit Blanket from the report, and when the final version was issued, the discipline was based solely on Michael's treatment.

"An anesthesiologist had Blanket sedated the entire time."

And....? Isn´t that the usual and proper prosedure when you have major dental work done to you?

Twisting and turning facts to make Michael look bad. And yes, someone said that the next story will be something like Hungry Murray Muthaluva saving a kitten from a tree, the "gentle giant". There have been plenty of staged stories along those lines. GAG

Is this from Murray´s PR team? You know what, I think Murray´s PR machine should advise him that it makes him look bad to HAVE a PR team in the first place. People wonder how he can afford it.

And of course the IDIOT Mj lovers are defending him. Is it ever going to end? If this man was a regular guy off the streets nobody would be defending him, when the child molestation case happened it would have been nothing but kill him, rape him, etc comments but because it was Micheal Jackson it is just totally fine and he could have never of done this or that. It was totally okay when he hung his youngest over a balcony several stories up and almost dropped him but hey he is MJ so that is just totally fine, I guess if he had actually dropped the child and killed him it would have totally been fine as well because he is MJ?

What you really have to find hilarious is when MJ lovers post about people not having brains I mean really are they actually serious? They are completely brain washed by this guy that it is really disturbing and sad. The man was a fruit loop and should have never been allowed to have children. I hope the kids grow up to be normal but with the way the Jackson family is the odds are not in there favor. The entire family, this includes Katherine is trying to use MJ's death as a payday and then you got two brothers who were married to the same woman and have kids by her making them cousins and siblings, THAT IS DISGUSTING!

I'm starting to get a clearer picture of Michael but not the one TMZ was hoping for.

See, there is another doctor who treated MJ in Ireland and he said that MJ was offered propofol for a proceedure he had done on his nose.

He said that MJ was in such pain that he was offered propofol BUT that MJ refused because there was no "anesthesiologist".

Now this doctor spoke a while ago but it always struck me as odd that MJ asked that an anesthesiologist do the proceedure.

I thought he was trying to cover up for MJ by saying he wouldn't have done it if one weren't around.

So now TMZ presents this story. And although it's supposed to make me outraged, but if the child was having a painful proceedure that needed to be done, then I could see MJ not wanting his 6yr old in pain.

Some kids are afraid of the dentist and novacane (sp?) isn't going to do.

This makes the case stronger to me that MJ trusted Dr. Murray and that Dr. Murray must have sold MJ a bill of goods that he was capapble of administering propofol.

Murray wanted that money and said he could administer propofol just to gain MJ's trust and money.

Sad.

A patient pushing a doctor for drugs is no excuse. Doctors are 100% accountable for everything they do.

Of course this is TMZ and I don't believe this for a second.

But I'm playing along with them. LOL

If it were true it would have been kept tight to produce by the defense at trial.

The fact that TMZ was able to get it and get this: the Blanket story was omitted!

OH MY!

Tells me MJ probably got the propofol and not his baby.

I've seen TMZ get the story wrong from what actually was said many times.

But I'll still play like its' a true story. LOL

what kind of a procedure is done on a 6 year old that requires him to be knocked out!!

what?? teeth cleaning?? filling??
Michael was passing his ways/phobia/addiction along to his kids it appears

if he did this with the youngest one--what are the odds that he had done this with either/both of the older kids?

quite high I would think!

why do medical personnel have such a difficult time saying no to high profile people-like MJ/Elvis..you can add to that list

really quite pathetic

"And....? Isn´t that the usual and proper prosedure when you have major dental work done to you?"

Sorry but NO. It's not an operation. I had major dental work done with PARTIAL SEDATION which means I was aware of everything around me but I didn't feel pain. You don't need anesthesiologist for that!!! It wasn't a heart operation, it was a dental procedure! You don't need to be asleep for that!
Yet I still hope the story is untrue.

IF the story is even true.

Seems to me like the report is what they were looking for but in the end Blanket probably didn't get the proceedure.

I think it's false.

"Have an anesthesiologist do whatever type of sedation required

And???? Your point TMZ? This quote alone proves that Michael was looking out for his son and not wanting something illegal done. If this story is even true to begin with.

TMZ always has a lot of "sources" don't they? The fact that Blankets name is not even on the do***ents does not show MJ at fault. Again, if this is even true.


Now that Murray is going to trial there is going to be a lot of baseless stories coming out about Michael. After all it is the Defense's job to drag the VICTIM through hell.

It is our job to know the truth!
