Debbie Rowe

To Testify About

MJ's Shocking Drug Use

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.

She really is ugly. What did MJ see in her? Oh, that´s right, she was an egg donor for his test tube baby experiments.

Stay Away From My Kids: Debbie Rowe Threatens Man Who Claims To Be Paris Jackson’s Real Father

Posted on Jul 26, 2013 @ 15:44PM | By Alexis Tereszcuk - Entertainment Editor

Debbie Rowe has recently reunited with her daughter Paris Jackson and is supporting her during her troubled times and while she usually stays out of the spotlight she has taken a stand against the man who says he is the real father of Michael Jackson’s daughter, beating down his claims.

Former child star Mark Lester revealed in a recent interview that he believes he is the father of Paris and Prince Jackson and that his close friend Michael never wanted Debbie to have a relationship with the children.

Lester started a vicious Twitter war with Debbie this week, writing to her: “Hi Debbie I think we need to talk for the good of Paris. We have strong family ties here it can only be for the best x.”

According to Showbiz411.com Debbie’s account was protected but she eventually opened her Tweets to the public to show what her responses were to Lester’s claims.

“Why don’t you go to hell,” was Debbie’s first response, and when Lester wrote “Why so aggressive? I come in peace,” and Debbie amped up her response and wrote to him: “BTW surprised your family speaks to you after all the crap you spew.”

The mother of Michael’s two older children made it clear to Lester that she wants nothing to do with him, writing: “Good for you stay away from me and my kids.

As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Debbie is considering moving to Los Angeles temporarily to be closer to her daughter during her treatment.

Yeah, she had control over him. What's Paris going to say to her "mother" when she finds out what she's said about Michael? Bottom line she took the money before he died and again after and then left town. Good Mother!!

Snake is the best word I can find to describe this woman. An opportunist of the worst kind, I've always said it! Never fooled me. Isn't this the same woman that sent a tape to TMZ crying because people were commenting negatively about Michael? And trying to build a relationship with her daughter? And now she's going to testify that Michael was a hard core drug user? Blaming everyone else and portraying herself as the naive victim? I would feel more respect for her if she came out and told the truth plain and simple. She knew what was going on in that office, she was the one who injected Demerol to Michael on Klein's orders and saw the frequency of the injections. And she knew exactly what the deal was when she accepted to be the surrogate for Michael's children. She knows way lot more, but she's mumz. Waiting for the best opportunity to make money with it.

So many people on here are just ranting about things they think they know without doing their research. Read into things before writing 12 paragraphs of nonsense.

I keep an open minded! You did this before! At the 2005 trial you as well expected from her to go against him and say how horrible of a father he is and so on and in the end all this noise was much a do about nothing because she only said gold things about Michael! And now that she re-bonded with Paris and now in her last condisionts believe me she will consider words and action! Stop enter words into people's mouth! I wanna hear her direct words and now what TMZ thinks she might say!

If she's going to testify for AEG for sure is not going to be to glorify Michael. And for sure AEG will make her compromising questions that she will have to answer. If she was subpoenaed she could very easily take the fifth, like Murray did.

As much as DR is the most honest of the Jackson mob, she still has to blame someone other than Michael for his drug use.
It wouldn't be so disgusting if at least ONE of this group would place just an ounce of blame on Michael......but every problem is due to someone else.
Zero self responsibility.

Really people? You have no idea what Debbie Rowe will say in her testimony. As for being able to control him, I don't think anyone had the power but......he did trust her probably more than any other woman in his life (other than Katherine), but Michael Jackson had been screwed by so many people over the years that trust was a word found only in the dictionary. I believe that Michael did have a very serious problem with prescription drugs, but he took them not to get high, but to cope with pain from the serious burns to his head, various injuries over the years, especially a traumatic back injury as a result of a state prop failure during a concert in Munich, Germany. Perhaps also, he sought relief from the constant and vicious attackes by the media as they tried desperately to de-humanize him. Remember, he was a human being and we certainly didn't treat him very well.

they can say they didnt know all they want, but if they did any exam on him to see if he was fit they would have seen the signs of drug abuse on his body.
