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.

Another known fact: Michael was always against the tabloids and most of the press because they distorted everything about him, and he was forever saying that what they said about him were lies. And yet, countless people continue to read the tabloid trash and believe bad things about Michael. And it isn't just Michael that they lie about either - all celebreties are lied about - all for the sake of the almighty $$$$. Learn the truth - don't buy into all the garbage that is printed about Michael - especially from a tabloid site or whatever.

I LOVE seeing how many people realize MJ faked his own death. For whatever reasons( and we can plainly see most of them) ....I AM GLAD HE OUTSMARTED THE EVIL TRASH MEDIA. He and his kids are now left alone, Neverland is back from the brink, and he is raking in the dough. Don't you just love his new mega contract was awarded by his OWN publishing company??? I had NO IDEA MJ was this brilliant!!!

You are delusional. I have a friend who works at Forest Lawn and he is gone. Get over it already. Let him rest in peace.
Say a prayer, light a candle, do something kind for someone other than yourself..... but he is not alive.

Why must people always find someone to blame? Jackson is to blame for his own demise. His parents didn't do him any favors either.

Crazed MJ fans. He isn't dead, he went home with Elvis. Didn't you watch "Men In Black"? We don't have the type of treaty with Jupiter (Elvis' and MJ's home) that allows them to work in that type of capacity with Earth

i agree with the statement, that if the anesthesiologist had been hired - MJ would still be here with us.

There was no necessity to hire nor the stomatologist, nor the anesthesiologist. Therefore Michael hasn't employed them just like another doctor.. There was no dependence from propofol, WASN"'t!

Wrong! The anesthesiologist's job is to monitor and resusitate the patient while under propofol. That is what they do! As well as monitor the amount of the drug being administered at all times.

TMZ, I dont know if your being paid to say Michael was this huge drug addict or what. All I know is you guys try way to hard to tell us that he abused drugs despite his autopsy pointing otherwise.

This doesn't make any sense!
If you go out of your way in order to hire the best anesthesiologist possible, how the hell do you fail to hire an anesthesiologist & instead wind up hiring a cardiologist to administer anesthesia?! There's something odd going on. It better all come out during the trial.

The bottom line is still Jackson was a full blown addict for many years. Had the money and means to get whatever he wanted. This is not a news flash.

If the anesthesiologist was necessary to Michael (if he wanted to sleep with the help of propofol , he would employ that anesthesiologist whom he trusted, which did to him anesthesia repeatedly when it was necassary) . That he hasn't employed him, means he didn't use propofol. Murray says lies!

Yeah...that's all normal behavior...I mean don't most people "INTERVIEW" there own personal Anesthesiologist?

Wow..this guy was a walking (moon walking) dead man for YEARS before he offed himself.

Cut the crap...Murry is a Quack who was there to collect a pay check...if it hadn't been him it would have been some other immoral Dr. looking for the cash cow.

YANK HIS LICENSE FOR SHEER STUPIDITY ALONE AND CALL IT A DAY.
