MJ Was On the Hunt For The Perfect Anesthesiologist

2/17/2011 10:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Jackson was such a hard-core drug addict ... he actually interviewed an anesthesiologist  to follow him to London to "take care of him."

Michael Jackson Doctor

Jackson -- who had a well-documented Propofol addiction for years before his death -- tried recruiting Dr. David Adams, a Las Vegas anesthesiologist, to go on tour with him in 2009.

We've learned Dr. Adams told LAPD investigators that several months before MJ's death ... Dr. Conrad Murray and Michael met with Dr. Adams and said, "We think it would be great to have an anesthesiologist go on the [This Is It] tour."

Turns out Dr. Adams had a history with Michael ... he had put MJ under with Propofol four times in two years for various procedures.

Adams thought about it and texted Murray, "I'd like to be on board.  Let's talk about it."  But MJ and Murray never contacted him again.

Murray's defense team spokesperson Miranda Sevcik says, "Dr. Murray did not know David Adams."  But Sevcik did say the defense has subpoenaed Dr. Adams for the trial.

I just cannot comprehend MJ's addiction to Propofol! I was put under with Propofol for 4 hours (in a hospital - legal and all...) and it feels awful to wake up from that so I just don't get it. It takes over a weeks just to fully come to your senses again... so why the h*ll did he like it???

NOT surprised. Somehow it's a bit comforting to know that MJ had not completely lost his mind & had at least considered the notion that perhaps it would be pretty stupid not to have an anesthesiologist with him if he was hellbent on doing this foolishness but seems if the guy was never phoned back, must have come down to a question of MONEY & Murray probably wasn't willing to forego his $150,000 in order to bring another doc in. Probably had MJ convinced he could do the job himself the greedy f'k.


What I find odd is that this Adams would actually admit to police he really considered DOING THIS?! What the hell is WRONG with these unethical characters calling themselves 'doctor'? What a shame.

How sad MJ had reached such a state of irrational thinking where he really considered all this to be 'okay'. I say this not to judge or blame but out of such a feeling of complete sadness for him. Such desperation:(

Was MJ a drug addict or a sleep addict. I think people confuse this fact. When someone can't sleep and NOTHING WORKS and in this case propofol was it, what else do you do??? A couple of nights with no sleep and you'd go insane, you'd snap. I don't blame him for going for the propofol if nothing else worked as dangerous as it was I'm sure he was well aware of that fact but had no choice. He needed to sleep and couldn't.

This is how illogical these so call fans are with their rabid heads. No, Propofol is not a sleeping aid, you don't get the natural sleep to restore, refresh and repair your body. He need to go to a hospital, go to a rehab clinic, not doctor shopping for drugs!

And you Sandy, has a choice two , get educated, get smart and get over MJ!!!

Boy oh boy the BS is just flowing faster and faster the closer we get to the trial.

Honestly, this is a weak attempt to support Dr. Murray. It isn't even veiled in any way lol.

Pure utter BS.

Michael Jackson is still ALIVE and part of the reason he faked his death was to prove a point that the media (tabloids) and regular media can say anything they want about a person and we automaticly beLIEve it's the gospel, but the truth is that it's NOT. Michael also needed a breather from his life. He was very upset about many aspects of his life he had to deal with and the false allegations he endured really took it's toll on him. Most people could go to a private place to recover from something like that, but he couldn't go anywhere other than home. Michael built Neverland just so he could enjoy going to an amusement park in peace without camera men taking his picture and reporters asking him STUPID questions. You have no idea the hell this guy has been through and if you think for one minute being rich and famous and admirered the world over was enough to make things ok, guess again. He is a human being with feelings, he needs peace of mind, he needs private time and room to breathe and an oppurtunity to decompress after a long hard day. Damn, he sang "leave me alone, just stop dogging me around", so what part of that are people not understanding. If he is actually dead, people are still trying to pick him apart.
Seriously what kind of society of people are we breeding with no caring, no humanity, no concern for our fellow man. Today's world is growing and it's filled with HUMAN WASTE and to be clear the waste is WORTHLESS PEOPLE growing by leaps and bounds.
If people weeped for Michael it's because they realized they lost one of the few people left in the world who was worthwhile.
I know he's ALIVE, but if he decides not to re-enter back into society, I for one don't blame him at all... There's no shame anymore, but people today are disgraceful and they should take a page out of Michael's book, look in the mirror and make a change.

TMZ, you're ridiculous. I'm done responding to or reading any more comments on the negative and fallacious MJ stories you spin. You won't be getting any more hits from me on these character assassination type tabloid garbage articles. Report the facts and stop with the nasty insinuations.

Love and miss you forever MJ.

Hi Ufart. there is a pot of sand outside TMZ's office, you can just put your head in it. So rabid fans are like this, good things about Mj, they buy it up, like oh yeah winning another Grammy, not winning? Oh Grammy is over rated, he got 19 of them. Anything bad about MJ is lies. They will say go do your research (yes, that means read some love poem on a MJ site. Watda???

What there saying in this article is: (apart from the bullsht)
"Michael knew the dangers of propofol" that's why he wanted an
anesthesiologist to be there "ethical or not". I don't buy he
self injected or drank the propofol.If Dr.Adams had been there Michael would be alive TODAY.........................................................
Murray was so incompetent that he didn't even realize Michael had a bronchial infection going on ,which proves to me that
he didn't listen to his heart nor his breathing before putting
him under "NORMAL PROCEDURE"

Why doesn’t supprise me the extremely negative reports from the last days regarding Michael Jackson? Now, AEG = Anschutz = TMZ.

AEG is under pressure because of the allegations in the civil actions brought by Katherine and Joe Jackson. And, because of the pending court dates in the near future

22/03/2011 - KATHERINE JACKSON ET AL VS AEG LIVE LLC ET AL
24/03/2011 - People VS CONRAD MURRAY

attempts are now (once again) not the actual perpetrators but the victims discredit, and it scares you do not even back from false, defamatory reports. But we already know from previous years .....

But it gets even better, because it seems, TMZ quickly forget what they themselves have reported on the same topic but at other times, so I like to help you to remember:

>>> Conrad Murray A Liar, Dr. Claims

Posted Aug 25th 2009 11:50AM by TMZ Staff

A Las Vegas doctor says Dr. Conrad Murray was lying when he told LAPD detectives he watched the Vegas doc administer Propofol to Michael Jackson earlier this year.

Liborius Agwara, the lawyer repping Dr. David Adams, tells TMZ his client never administered Propofol to Michael Jackson in a cosmetologist's office. According to the search warrant affidavit, Dr. Murray told LAPD detectives he was present when Dr. Adams administered the drug "sometime between March and April of this year."

Agwara would not say if Dr. Adams has ever administered Propofol to Jackson.

Not only Murray is a liar - TMZ and Anschutz/AEG also!
