Debbie Rowe

To Testify About

MJ's Shocking Drug Use

7/25/2013 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0724-debbie-rowe-article-splash-3
Debbie Rowe will testify in the Michael Jackson wrongful death case that MJ was a SECRET, hardcore drug addict for decades -- testimony that could severely damage the Jackson's case.

Sources connected with the trial tell TMZ ... Rowe will be called by AEG Live Tuesday or Wednesday ... and she'll testify that in the '80s and '90s ... she knew Michael was abusing some prescription meds, but had no idea his habit was so out of control.

We're told Rowe will point the finger at her former boss, MJ's go-to doc, Arnie Klein.  Rowe will testify she learned after the fact that Klein had a standing order ... when Michael came to the office he should be injected with Demerol and Vistaril (which makes the Demerol stronger). 

Rowe will say Michael kept the extent of his drug abuse a secret from her -- something that will clearly help AEG, because the company is arguing it had no reason to know Michael was a drug abuser.

Rowe will say she saw Michael on TMZ coming out of Klein's office days before he died -- looking totally out of it.  We're told she will say she called Klein after Michael died and said, "What the f**k did you give him?  He's dead and it's your fault."  She then hung up on him.

Rowe's testimony will further help AEG because she'll say she had no idea Michael was secretly going to surgical offices specifically for the purpose of getting high and going to sleep.

She'll also say she's the only person in Michael's world who could control him -- that she's the only one (including Michael's family) who would say "NO."

The testimony could be critical.  If the jury believes Michael could hide his hardcore drug use, AEG would have no reason to sound an alarm or take preventative action.

FIRST OFF she was NOT AT ALL part of Michael Jackson's life, she was only a surrogate mother who has offered to have Michael Jackson's children in order to get millions. How dare she say was the only one who could control him when she NEVER had NO say in not even in Prince's and Paris' lives, let's figure in Michael Jackson's life!!! And how dare she say he was a drug addict when the CORONER stated that he was NOT AT ALL?!?!?!! And Michael Jackson admitted in 1993 he was abusing of painkillers but since he went to rehab - on ELIZABETH TAYLOR'S advice - never more abused of any of them. Only in her sick dreams she could control Michael Jackson, she has never been nothing in his life. And I really hope that Paris will see who this opportunist really is and will stay away from her like Prince already is doing. Who knows how much AEG paid her to say that. Disgusting money-grubbers who do ANYTHING for money!!!

"She told me that MJ was very weak, and she told me that she talked about what went down at the practice, they had to hold him up" she said

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 22 Jul
Mrs. Jackson: No, not at all. The children knew her, they wanted her, that's why.

Mrs. Jackson: Kai Chase has been working for me not quite a year yet

Panish: Did you hire Kai Chase so she would testify in your favor?

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 22 Jul
Panish: There was a suggestion in this trial you hired Kai Chase back so she can testify in your favor?


Panish: Did Sister Rose discuss with you about AEG pressuring MJ?
Mrs. Jackson: Yes

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 22 Jul
Regarding the interview, Mrs. Jackson said she just assumed, she didn't know whether MJ had hired Dr. Murray


ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 22 Jul
Putnam asked if Mrs. Jackson spoke with Sister Rose, the kids' nanny.
===
Nanny & Chef both kept their mouths shut all for money. Of course, kids rehired Chef Kai. She told them what they wanted to hear.

I was wondering when Debbie would sell TMZ another story. At least this one doesn't victimize her poor tragic donated egg.

Be wary of Debbie Rowe? Wasn't her evidence on the stand in 2005 at odds with her statements to the police?


Previous evidence in the current civil case has been that Debbie Rowe was on tour with Michael Jackson in 1992 as his nurse, carrying a bag of medications. Rowe wanted to teach Karen Faye how to give injections.


The tour doctor testified Jackson's was so scarred from previous treatments he nearly broke a needle trying to give an injection of Demerol, given to him by Karen Faye.


His mother, his brothers & sisters, his doctors, his ex wife etc all say they were the only one's saying no to Michael, from the evidence it looks like Michael didn't accept no.


Michael Jackson clearly manipulated these people to do his bidding out of a misplaced love for him, they need to come clean, stop the swiping or blaming others and just provide some honest truth in their lifes....if not for themselves, for Michael's children.

BUT BUT the dingbat humannature said he wasnt a drug addict! Wait are you guys suggesting someone that knew him knows more about MJ than some banana online who wishes they did? No way. humannature installed his pedo alarm in his bedroom this has to be true.


Or they are a delusional moron who eats what ever the estate feeds them. Including he was a pedo.

Deny. Deny. Deny.
When you can deny no longer, Blame, blame, blame.
No matter what, nothing negative is ever Michael's fault.
When that no longer works claim that it is all innocent or something you should be sympathetic towards poor abused Michael.
And never forget, Sue. Sue. Sue.
"He" was super rich but had deep financial problems.
"He" was a very sick but completely healthy person.
"He" didn't abuse drugs, except the strong ones from many doctors, for decades. But that couldn't be his fault.

Oh, and I forgot, this is all a global conspiracy against Michael that went on for over 30 years
It all started in anticipation because they knew someday he would own a large part of the Sony catalog.

all about the money    

Seems kind of funny. If Katherine hadn't been so greedy trying to get what is it 40 "BILLION" from AEG because she lost her pay check...I mean her son died then all these potentially damaging testimony wouldn't air the dirty laundry of her family and her son. I actually hope they force Murry to testify and I really hope he does have a "nuclear option" that will shed even more light on the twisted Jackson family. All because the Jackson family clan is so greedy they are trying to profit from their sons death.

She's certainly not mother of the year, but I think she will speak openly and honestly about Michael's passion for drugs. He was, first and foremost, a dug user, and if his family cannot accept that fact, that is on them. Drug addicts lie. Drug addicts, without help, die. Michael knew what his family was all about and ignored them prior to his passing, and didn't think enough of them to leave them anything in his will - talking about his siblings - including the care of the kids. Here they are continuing to go after his money. What a disgrace they are. His mother, in my opinion, is being forced by his darling children, to continue with this facade. Michael was a talented musical genius who was a drug addict for years and years. He looked horrible for years and years, and died due to his NEED for drugs. They have to learn to let him rest in peace as they brought him no peace during his lifetime.
