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.

What difference does any of this make?....Michael is dead....and he is just as responsible for his own death. Money had the power in his case to buy whatever was necessary to get through the day, and as talented as he was, and as sad as it is is gone those doctors need their license taken away bottom line...why waste time in a trial, their signatures are on the prescription...and we all closed our eyes but we also all knew something was not right!

Well with all this coming out, then maybe Dr. Murray is not so responsible for MJ's death. For all anyone knows that night he woke up and gave himself some more Propofol. Debbie Rowe spent enough time with him to know what had been going on in his life, I just wish she had not signed the children over to him as it was not in their best interest.

MJ was an addict. I don't know which of the hundreds of drugs killed. I can only imagine what his insides looked like. His body was a total mess. If only, someone had intervened-maybe his parents. The fact that he took propafol is insane. MJ was the King Of Pop, but died the King of Drugs.

Do all you white people think every black man has a drug problem. I am sure our President would love to have Mr. Jackson as a son as well. You white people leave us dead beat, dope head black people alone

Harvey Levin must be a mind-reader llike Tom Sneddon, since Sneddon thought he knew what Debbie would say also. lol

Debbie Rowe is one ugly woman! Of all the White women on the planet to inseminate, Michael Jackson could have picked a better looking one. Thank goodness their kids didn't come out looking like her!

Im so tired of people who vilify others. Much as I loved Elvis, he was a user. Much as I loved Micheal, he was using something the day he died. The children have been dragged thru the mud by others who couldnt give a hoot about them. Enough is enough. Will be glad when this is over and done with so the kids can move on to better way of life, hopefully.

Some things I would question if I were Katherine, and not about money... Why did the autopsy not show drug abuse, Why the public photo of the corpse looked different from they way the ambulance workers and the autopsy stated he looked, why there was doubt that Michael was the actual person at the in the last recorded video and why his corpse showed no caved in chest or bruises from the attempt to save his life? Evidence pictures should not be doctored. There is something wrong here and I do believe Murray can blow things out of the water.

If Debbie said Michael look like he was drugged, isn't it likely members of his team saw the same? Does no one take the e-mails about Michael's condition seriously?

The biggest question is, since Michael lived his life partially in private, who really knows what the real Michael Jackson looks like?

Maybe Debbie was the reason, Michael was stoned 24/7

Rowe is going to say what EVERYONE else in the world already knows and the Jackson family as well. The difference is the Jackson Family's cash cow is dead and they have been banking on him their entire lives. They will point the finger at everyone else but their son who was a drug addict for most of his life. The Jackson Family is not delusional or in denial. They are frauds. Except those children. No wonder they're having issues. They know the truth and children don't know how to cope. It's in black and white. Katherine Jackson should just give up.
