Michael Jackson

Creepy 'I Can't Sleep' Letter

Yanked from Auction

5/30/2012 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A letter Michael Jackson wrote to Lisa Marie Presley -- complaining about the problem that ultimately killed the singer -- has been yanked from the auction block after Lisa Marie pitched a fit.

Lisa Marie has not said why she wanted the letter pulled, but it's pretty clear -- Michael struggled with sleep deprivation for years until he found a quick fix in the form of Propofol.

The letter -- written sometime between 1993 and 1996, reads as follows: "Smell here [arrow with box] Lisa I truly need this rest I haven't slept litterally [sic] in 4 days now. I need to be away from phones and Business people. I must take care of my health first Im' [sic] crazy for you Love Turd."

As TMZ first reported, Jackson was doctor shopping for Propofol before he hooked up with Conrad Murray.

So Julien's Auction in Beverly Hills -- the same company selling off Elvis' crypt -- has capitulated to Elvis' daughter. Owner Darren Julien tells TMZ, "I'm assuming it's a personal nature, and we wanted to honor the request and continue our good relationship with Ms. Presley."

We can read between the lines.

This is actually for Jimmy Wimmy - check out the 2005 trial official trial transcripts to see how that alarm system worked. Seems as if Jackson ignored the alarms going off and left the door unlocked - not once - but twice so the "victims" brother could walk in and find him molesting his brother. Then you have to figure out why the brother described something entirely different than what the "victim" said happened. But hey you don't need facts like a trial transcript when you can read all the truth you need in rags and sites like this one.

Even if you put aside "color changes" in MJ's face it is still quite evident that he had a lot of work done. His plastic surgery was mentioned in the autopsy. Simply look at MJ's transformation since he became an adult.

I mentioned MJ may not have been physically addicted to drugs but rather psychologically addicted to medical procedures. The autopsy mentioned that the coroner didn't see MJ as a drug addict but you have to take that for what it is. Pharmaceutical drug use is quite different to street drugs. Many of the negative physical attributes of an illegal drug user are due to the quality of the drugs and the method in which they are taken. Pharmaceutical drugs are pure and not cut with unknown substances, dirty needles are not shared and reused etc., this is especially true with opiate based drugs. Many prescribed drugs are given because they have no long term ill effects on the body. No one ever accused MJ of shooting up in alleys and buying crack on the corner.

Murry's frequency of "treating" MJ was evidenced quite heavily in court. Not only was there evidence of many used propofol bottles, but MJ himself held up Murray (and his "treatments") as a savior to "his kids".

Phia, sorry if I phrased that awkwardly.

It was evidenced in the trial that Murray "treated" MJ on a routine basis during the trial.
MJ boasted to "his kids" about Murray and his "treatments".

I use the word "treatment" (in quotes) because although what he did was medical, it wasn't beneficial and obviously quite dangerous.

As you may know I always felt Murray was ultimately responsible for MJ's death but MJ himself had some responsibility for his own care. It would be quite different if it was a one time occurrence or MJ was incapable of understanding what was going on.

Folks, we have a winner! TMZ is pleased to announce that HumanNature, based on number of comments, is Michael Jackson’s number one fanatic! Over seven thousand unique comments, over 900,000 words so far! Over a period spanning an incredible 3 years! To put this in perspective, if we bundled all of HumanNature’s comments together in book form, we’d be looking at something the size of Dostoyevsky’s “Brother’s Karamozov.” His comments now account for over 40% of entries posted on any Michael Jackson story on our website (he also posts under at least one additional alias, Duilama).

And even more remarkable, he is even more obsessed with another topic: pedophilia, or “pedo” as he fondly calls it. Be it an article on any subject at all—football, perfume, real estate, public schools, adolescent girls, baby names, and hairstyles (just to name a few), he is able to deftly weave this topic in.

So to reward HumanNature for his admirable interest in Mr. Jackson, we thought we’d give him our “special treatment” even though we had to send our scouts out beyond our thirty mile zone for this one. With help from our IT department and our web surveillance team we were able to trace his true name and identity:

HumanNature (second web alias Duilama) is a registered Level Three sex offender who currently lives in Sedro-Woolley, a city in Skagit County in the State of Washington. HumanNature was convicted in 1997 of: “rape of a child in the first degree. Victim: 7 year old female daughter of his girlfriend.”

Though for litigious reasons we can’t reveal his real name here, you can read more about him by clicking on:

Why does everyone ASSUME Michael had an insomnia problem because he said he hadn't slept in literally 4 days. How do you know he wasn't in the studio or rehearsing like crazy for a tour, this was back in 93-95. He was working a lot back then. But I think he was simply sick of Lisa and her whining and he even said later all she wanted to do was argue and fight. This was just the nicest way he could tell her to "BEAT IT", because he'd had enough! I think the perfume box was sweet though. Too BAD he wasted it on her.
