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.

What a pickle to get into, and AEG snd all their cronies want us to believe that he was in a fit enough state to perform. In my mind the sad pathetic person portrayed in the This is it movie bears no resemblence to the once great Michael Jackson. Anyone who had seem him live in the last 20 years could attest to that. I think it is fairly obvious that Michael would never make old bones. However, he chose to medicate his life away and use artificial aids to help him sleep. Ever wondered why he couldn't sleep and why he was so broke? He squandered his money on an indulgent, extravagant lifestyle and died 400 million in debt. Who knows where all that money went, he sure made some big "donations" to families of little boys. Sad but true.

Hey Ladies!

Was watching TMZ on tv a short time ago. And on it - Dr. Murray said that he felt that the trial was "Unjustified"! "Unjustified"? Is he F***ing Kidding? After all the things that he did and didn't do - How in the Devil can he possibly say that his trial is "Unjustified"? What a Piece of S***! I hope and pray that someone takes his miserable a** out permanently! The JackA**!!

There is... It is called the *autopsy report*. Maybe you should read it. Also look at the drugs they found in his house outside the reports in media outlets (this is well do***ented, just like in any other criminal investigation), not to mention that anyone who knew Michael Jackson (from familily, bodyguards, people he closley worked with) have stated that they knew he was (ab)using prescription drugs and even staged interventions (why would they do that, because he was abusing pepsi cola???)
________________________________________________________________
All the drugs found at Micael's house were prescription drugs with aliases or torn off labels. Several of the bottles had pills in them that were several months old. That's do***ented in the autopsy report. The vials were left there on purpose by Murray after he cleaned up the crime scene. The security guard admitted to this at the prelim.
Michael admitted to dependency on pain medication on national television back in the early 1990s. Michael was a burn victim and required multiple procedures on his scalp. He sought therapeutic treatment to end his dependency.
Everybody knows michael suffered with vitiligo and showed physical signs and symptoms of Lupus. Michael acknowledged having pleurisy back in the 80's. Michael stated this in his book Moonwalk.
No one is denying that Michael used prescriptions medications. No is denying that Michael was dependent on pain medications. Michael was always under the care of one or more DOCTORS for his medical ailments.
I still can't believe anyone is so thick that they cannot see this. Michael had multiple medical diagnoses. Only an idiot would blame someone who suffered with life long pain due to his ailments.
Only and knumb skull would blame a person for seeking relief of the physical pain. Michael was not using street drugs. It was not illegal for Michael to consult and obtain medical treatment from as many "doctors" as he needed.
Blame the damn doctor who took advantage of Michael's vulnerability and murdererd him!!!!!!...........pleaszzzzz!!!

HI mymjj5!!! You are very smart!".... I can't see where murray makes a claim that michael complained of sleeplessness during the previous six weeks...and so on.
!!!!!!!!!!!!
He likely has again forgotten ( because he is forgetful ) to tell? Ah, no! After all, Michael was healthy, therefore he drove Michael away on rehearsal.

Hi Ulja

Murray lies so much he doesn't know which end is up! Murray is a confident liar because AEG or some other powerful people are covering his crime, paying for his living expenses and legal fees. Murray's story is full of holes yet only the fans are calling him out about it. The legit media does not care. If Murray does not go to jail for killing Michael the billion member fan base needs to drop one account or downgrade some services. Just dry your weeping eyes with all the money you're not putting into the pockets of the powerful culprits. Michael's children, grandchildren and greatgrand children are already set for every. The interest on the millions that PPB currently have will never run out.

Ortega, AEG, Murray they all talk out of both sides of their mouths. One moment Michael can't rehearse. Next moment nobody saw any indication that michael was using medications. Travis Payne stated that he and michael rehearsed at Holmby Hills everyday at 2pm. Rehersal would run until 3:30p or 4:30p. THey would reconvene at the staples center after 6pm. Travis never gives an account of michael missing rehearsal or being too tired to work. Per Travis the camera's were always on during rehearsal at Holmby Hills. Also TII footage went all the way to 6/24/2009. The opening credits claim footage was taken from April to June as we all know.
IMO: Michael doesn't look like someone who's having procedures to his face multiple times per week. The mainstream media would backtrack a few days later and say the footage went all the way through to 6/23/2009.
That's okay I believe their first claim of 6/24/2009 because the footage is comparable to the stories and claims made by Dorian Holley, Michael Bearden, and a few others w/n two days of Michael's passing.....versus one year later by the ASSociated Press...and the culprits....jmo!

I can't imagine the pain he was under to sleep. Something we take for granted. I really don't blame him for going to such lengths to try to sleep.

I love you with all my heart and wish you were here - a day doesn't go by where I don't think of you. Though am living it, its still hard to believe the world is without Michael Jackson.

Love and Miss You!!!

As for michael visiting klien's office, he must have had the procedures/treatment before murray was on board or before rehearsal began in april. otherwise there's no way michael could do it. forget pain and recovery. once rehearsal started in april, the hours are not available for him to vist klein's office several times per week and maintain his daily work schedule..............jmo

Greetings! mymjj5, I share your point of view. Murray wants to justify himself as if Michael would ask for propofol for sleeping as if he couldn't live without it no day. And he finally has given himself a superdose. But at the same time he justifies himself, speaking that all with Michael there was ок and he always was in a good condition for rehearsals. All these arguments lead to thought that Michael did not use propofol within two months just like earlier upon a regular basis for a sleep. It all is continuous improvisation. History with propofol for a sleep is real fake.

Murray does not tell truth because anybody in court yet does not expose his lies.
Why? CM covers some up, and they do the same for him in turn. It is more favourable to them to accuse him of negligence, and Michael in narcotism.
and to set on this the point.

Michael would take the kids with him from time to time whenever he went to Klien's office. Although there were multiple visits, Micheal still found time to shop, celebrate the children's birthday, attend meetings and other activities around the rehearsal schedule. Michael did not go to Klien's office 3-4 times per week. To my knowledge only two rehearsals were at the staples center 6/23 and 6/24. Everything else was either at Center Stage or the Forum. Anyway to the best of my knowledge thus far, the dates that Michael saw Klien are as follows:

January 14
February 07
February 13
March 23
April 1
April 27
May 11 (AEG hires Murray)
May 17
May 20
May 25
June 01
June 11
June 16
Sometime around the 18th or 19th the fallout came about Michael missing "a" rehearsal due to what the heck ever Arnie Slime was giving to him.

hi ulja
i agree! the fans just have to continue questioning the nonsense that just does not add up. they cannot have it both ways. i've never ever heard of anyone admitting to cleaning up a crime scene and delay calling 911 to save someone's life as simple negligence. it's just absurd. the fans have to stand up for michael and put the murderer and culprits on blast. last but not least don't buy anything of michael's that falls under that seven year deal with sony.
