Michael Jackson's Doctor Blames His OTHER Doctor For Drug Dependency

conrad murray blames drug dependency on other doctor

As has been the case for some time now, the Jacksons are currently in the midst of a wrongful death lawsuit against Dr. Conrad Murray.

Now, Murray's lawyers have filed legal documents which claim that Dr. Arnold Klein, Michael Jackson's longtime doctor/friend, got him addicted to Demerol and "another powerful narcotic."

Here's what the legal docs say about it:

"Due to Mr. Klein's actions, Mr. Jackson became physiologically and psychologically dependent on Demerol."

We can accept the fact that Dr. Conrad Murray wasn't THE ONLY ONE at fault, but as we said before, Dr. Murray still had no business treating MJ the way that he did. He took an oath to treat patients carefully and safely and it still seems to us like he did neither.

Who do U think is at fault? Dr. Klein? Dr. Conrad Murray? Both? Someone else?

    While I don't condone the actions of corrupt doctors who will do anything for money, Michael Jackson was an adult. There must be some responsibility placed on him. He wanted drugs, he found a way to get drugs.

    They were both enablers and should both go to jail.

    Klein is a shady charcater and i think he did wrong but Murray directly killed michael whether it was intentional or not. Murray administered the propofol and michael had not other drugs in his system other than what murray gave him. Bringing up demerol is irrelevant because it did not contribute to his death.

    Re: rosebud99 – Exactly. Most people don't want to place any blame on MJ.

    Michael Jackson killed himself. His family needs to man up and accept the fact that it was his own fault, no one elses. I am a recovering alcoholic, so do I get to blame or sue the liquor store that sells me alcohol? I used to drink myself to sleep, but if I could have afforded a Dr. Murray that would have been quite nice. Stop the blaming!

    there is a big difference here, Propofol, the drug that Murray gave Michael is not available to buy in stores, as is alcohol, it is only supposed to be available for use by someone who is trained to use it and in a hospital, not somebodys bedroom!
    what Murray done was illegal, what your local store sells you isnt!!!

    Unfortunately the music industry is run by shady individuals. MJ thought he was above them. But you do what they say or you are done, usually ending your career, not life. But in those few rare cases, MJ being one, a life is taken. That doctor did it. But he was paid to do so by high level music executives because MJ wouldn't sell the Beetles catalog. It is just a shame that these people are not punished and continue to live their lives as though nothing happened.

    Mj was a great star, he deserves credit for all he did. However he was also an addict, he did not have to score his drugs on the street like most addicts he just told a manager, assistant, errand person, ect… To score for him. Rich famous people live by different rules, but when something bad happens they r the first to start the blame game!!!! Mj got his drugs because he was rich and famous and lived by different rules. But he overdosed just like regular addicts do everyday!! Who goes looking for regular addicts killers???? In the end he was just a junkie
    Sad but true, he could sing and dance, his own fault not doctors he paid to prescribe

    MJ was an addict long before this guy got sucked into MJ's drug scene. Leave the man alone he no more killed MJ then I did. He did not make MJ an addict that is for sure.mj made MJ a drug addict and no one else and I would bet the MJ bought lots of pain killers off the street too. They need to try to stop sucking other peoples money up for what mj did himself.

    This whole thing is such a nasty business. Enter drugs = big problems.

    That sounds like a solid defense claim…who's next on the list? the pharmaceutical company?…Murray knows he's going down and has to come up with something… If the jury doesn't buy that, maybe they can say the trash man snuck in and administered it! Smart one, Murray!
