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.

Now TMZ are you trying to distract attention from Murray's
reckless behavior with crazy tabloid reporting? Michael just
wanted to sleep and also suffered with pain and needed the
anaesthetist to administer the propoful. That is why he is
gone because he didn't have the proper hospital setting under
Murray's care. Michael was trying to get the proper hospital
setting and that's all it was. Stop using sensationalism in
your writing. Murray is a misleader(lies)leads to think what
is not so;deceives.

To LC4Michael & mymjj5 - You are so right. Not just TMZ, but all these other tabloids and newspapers, etc. Such as the The Globe, The Sun, The Enquirer, Etc. They just will not stop distorting the truth, and dragging Michael's name through the mud. And so many idiots read all this crap, and believe it to be the gospel truth when in reality it is all a bunch of made up lies to get people to come there "anything for money"! And they know that if they bad mouth Michael in any manner - that the true fans will rise up to defend him with the truth. Unfortunately however, there are some people who do not wish to believe in the truth - instead they prefer to believe in the lies and promote the filth.

Hi Pegasus
You are so right. The tabloids minus TMZ could care less one way or the other. They know that there's a market of millions that will always spend at least .99 cents every single month on those lying trash mags.

btw: to anyone who says michael is alive, too bad the same cannot be said about your brain...............good grief!

Yes ohwell,it`s going to be fun,BECAUSE CONNY WILL GO DOWN!

Ever heard of Dr. Friedberg? He`s a anesthesia expert and he says Connie doesn`t stand a chance!
Among others he said:"The only thing more reckless Murray could have done was taking Jackson up in an airplane and pushing him out without a parachute.".
Surch for him on the net and read what more he has to say about Connie.

Hi mymjj5, Pegasus ,LC4Michael!
*********
I support your point of view in whole in this case.

And nevertheless I can't believe that Michael would use this damn propofol FOR sleeping and within two months when murray was with him. It is necessary to prove it. Murray all time says untruth. It is necessary to be the full fool to believe him! some found vials don't prove anything. I am assured that they were thrown up by CM for his version.

Thomas Mesereau (Michael Jackson's lawyer 2005):

"I met Micheal Jackson during a very dark period. The forces of evil were trying to take him away from us. The man I came to know was a kind, gentle soul who wanted to heal the world through music, art, love and decency. He succeeded. It was an honor and a privilege to defend him.

Rest in peace, Michael"


"The man's innocent. He always was."
(Tom Mesereau, following the verdict, June 13, 2005)

*******************

But Conrad Murray isn't innocent !!

Murray bought 255 vials of propofol just before Michael Jackson's death.

Murray is guilty for

1. Treatment of insomnia with an anesthetic

2. Use of this anesthetic, contrary to the clear provisions (in the home)

3. Absence of the required safety precautions (eg, monitoring, etc.)

4. Deliberate concealment of medications administered

5. Deliberate attempt to remove evidence

6. Unprofessional and inadequate CPR

7. Lack of supervision / monitoring of anesthetized patients


*******************

"It was not Michael Jackson's time to go. Michael Jackson is not here today because of the negligence and reckless acts of Dr. Murray."
(David Walgren, Los Angeles County Prosecutor, 4 Jan 2011)

To - MJ_poor_guy

Thank you for publishing the article about Michael. It does show how the news media and others distort/omit/etc. the very truth surrounding Michael. Sadly however, you have way too many people who prefer to believe the lies and continue to boast these lies over and over again when it goes against the facts and the truth. As is evident on these boards by some people. Thank God that Michael's true fans know the truth and remain committed to spreading that truth.

I am glad that the trial will be televised, because in that way (hopefully) the facts will not get distorted or omitted or anything else - and the world will see the truth come out with regards to what actually occured that day and all of Murray's mis-deeds. JMO

I love how the haters who clearly have no recollection regarding the history of the Jacksons think they know the truth. Everyone of their posts are based solely on a tabloid portrayal of the last 20-25 years. Just pathetic and empty headed post after post after post by the Hateration!!
The biased tabloid/trashloid media know there's a market of millions that will spend at least .99cents each month on their garbarge. Then rely on the dumbing down effect of those feeble minds to spread malicious rumors and ongoing stupidity....

btw: Murray has no Defence!

hi Pegasus
Murray's lack of a defense will be nothing more than diluted hogwash with unrelated facts to the case regarding Michael's medical history. It's remains to be seen if real men stand up for justice for the prosecution or if they too are in someone's back pocket with a watered down one count attack.......hhhhmmmm

the charge of involuntary manslaughter (one count) is BS in itself(jmo).

To mymjj5 - My thinking exactly! I just wonder who is paying off who in all of this. Still think that the charges should be changed to Murder 1 or 2. But at least it will be televised - and I hope that the news media doesn't omit any parts of the trial (like the parts that will discredit Murray's claims, etc.).

Michael was a total junkie and called the shots, no pun intended, about the drugs he consumed. Murray might have screwed up grandly on the monitoring, but it wasn't his MEDICAL DECISION to give MJ propofol-he was "persuaded" by the money offered.

Michael Jackson always was and still is a liar, a thief, and a coward.
