Michael Jackson: Do You Want Fries With That?

2/15/2011 10:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Jackson was so worried he couldn't perform his London concerts in 2009 ... he worried out loud he would end up working behind the counter at McDonald's.

Karen Faye -- Michael's hairstylist for a quarter century -- was interviewed by LAPD detectives days after MJ died ... and TMZ has learned what she said to police.

Faye told cops, "He was scared to death because AEG was funding everything.  He said he would have to work at McDonalds if he didn't do these shows."

Faye also told investigators she believed Michael was "self-sabotaging" with drugs because he couldn't do all 50 shows.  Faye said she believed Michael needed psychological help because he was losing so much weight -- adding, "I thought he was under the influence of something."

Faye says Michael's assistant told her MJ was seeing Dr. Arnold Klein 3 to 4 times a week and was exhibiting signs of drug use.  Days before Michael died, when MJ seemed to be more lucid, she asked Michael's manager if he knew why Michael had taken a turn for the better.  His response, according to Faye -- "'Cause Klein is out of town."

Knowing Arnie Klein definately didn't benefit Michael's life.

I have thought this for some time.

Klein has a lot to do with his death. I truly believe that. It will all come out one day. There is a reason why Murray phoned Klein's office the day of June 25th. I hope that reason is revealed in the trial of Murray.

MJ knew AEG was funding everything because he signed the AEG contract using his own company and catalogue as collateral for the advanced money. MJ’s manager was Frank Dileo, so that makes 3 (Karen and MJ’s assistant) that were guessing MJ was using drugs, but did they seek help for him? No. Is Karen going to testify for the defense?

This douche died. One douche less in Holly-freaking-wood. Why can't people forget about the guy. I am sure they would if they knew his antics. And yet he keeps on living in brainless idiots heads with an image which he does not deserve.

What is the deal with leaking all this stuff before the trial. Is this trial by media? Karen Faye and others testified to the police and did not give specifics in television interviews for a reason. The press is clearly thinking they are continue to control the outcome of this trial and it is totally unjust in my opinion. Let a jury decide Dr. Murray's fate, let them decide if he is guilty, and let a judge decide if AEG should be held liable in the wrongful death suit.

I don't know if I believe everything Karen Faye says...she's been talking non-stop since June 25/09...but I do think Klein should be prosecuted right alongside Murray. It's so sad that Michael had very few trusted friends in his life that had his best interests at heart.

Love and miss you forever MJ.
