Michael Jackson Doc

His Butt Was So Scarred...

It Nearly Broke My Needle

Michael Jackson
's buttocks were so scarred and infected from long-term drug injections ... the singer's thickened skin nearly broke his doctor's syringe -- this according to the doctor's testimony.

Dr. Stuart Finkelstein -- who cared for MJ back in 1993 during his "Dangerous" tour -- sat for a deposition earlier this year in Katherine Jackson's wrongful death lawsuit against AEG, describing the signs of MJ's drug addiction, and the testimony was just shown to the jury this week in court.
 
We got video of the depo and the details are crazy -- Finkelstein described one incident, saying, "I attempted to give [Michael] a shot of Demerol [a painkiller] but his buttocks were so scarred up and abscessed that the needle almost bent."

Finkelstein said the scarring resulted from "significant, extensive" shots of drugs over time.

He also describes his bizarre interactions with MJ back in the day, including squirt gun fights. You gotta see it.

Gross!! If his but looked that bad in 1993, what in the world was it like in 2005, or whatever year he died. Michael Jackson, the world's most famous pedophile, was truly a hideous mess.

I just wish for once in their life that TMZ could be honest and not sensatalize a story and play the whole thing and don't break it up into bits and bits to fit their agenda. Everyone who wasn't hiding under a rock in 1993 knows MJ came out and make a public statement he was going into rehab. That was in 1993 and this was the timeframe that this doctor was referring to. It's **** like this that is part of the problem of why he daughter tried to commit suicide. Give this man a f'cking break. I guess we need to go and see what is hiding in Harvey's closet.

The basis of this story is related to Dr. Stuart Finkelstein's treatment of MJ in 1993.
During the Dangerous Tour, when MJ had already endured at least 8 years of CRONIC PAIN from procedures initiated by plastic surgeon Stephen Hoffelin's barbaric, inhuman, and totally ineffective treatment of a very serious scalp burn.

Continuing treatment, He inserted a balloon pump in MJ'S scalp which was counter-productive due to MJ's Lupus, and to the severity of his condition, the wound/ scarring does not heal.
This left him dependant on Pain meds, obviously.
MJ cancelled the remainder of his tour, REALISED HE NEEDED urgent TREATMENT and entered Rehab in the UK.
-
This is the TIME PERIOD (1993 .. and NOT 2009)…..Of Dr. Stuart Finkelstein's deposition which he gave early this year.
