Michael Jackson's Former Manager Describes His Longtime Propofol Abuse In New Book.

| Filed under: DrugsR.I.P.Michael JacksonSad SadBookz


This is just heartbreaking.

As the Conrad Murray trial resolved itself this week, Michael Jackson's former manager, Frank Cascio, revealed in a new book about his time with the pop legend that Propofol, the drug that eventually took his life, was introduced to him as early as 1999.

According to an advanced copy of the manuscript, Jackson started taking Demerol in 1984, when he burned his head during a Pepsi commercial shoot. It became more of a regular habit during the 1993 Dangerous tour.

However, it was in 1999, after a stage accident in Munich, when he was introduced to Propofol, and when Cascio approached his siblings about his slowly-growing addiction to the drug in 2001, they tried to intervene, but he "simply pushed them away."

Cascio sadly concludes that Michael "died in his endless quest to attain some inner peace."

We hope that wherever he is now, he has found the peace that seemed to evade him during his time on Earth.

    Hate to break it to you Perez but michael is burning in hell for crimes against children! Holy crap am I the only person left alive without memory los??? You people seriously need to start taking care of who you put on pedestals for your children or take a share of the guilt over the repercussions. He was a peadophile. Fact.

  2. 2

    Michael was a drug addict just like Heath Ledger….

    He contributed to his own death.

    Re: Truth_Is_A-Virus – I absolutely agree with you.

    It is just like the Penn State situation. As long as it doesn't effect a person personally they they don't give a shit…….

    Yes. Michael I can feel is away from this mess here on Earth. He is in Heaven with God. He is at peace. I understand that this site attracts people with a certain hatred for people in general, but I am here to say that Michael is fine. I will also say that he is probably surprised we're still talking about him on this planet.

    I know there is a desperate need to prove that Michael harmed children but he didn't.

    He never would. He was exonerated by the courts And I didn't need that to know the truth.

    Michael is in peace and there are segemnts of the population who will never see their hatred is unfounded. But they all seem to have one thing in common: they are godless people.

    Re: bigbigfanmj – Stating an opinion has not necessarily anything to do with HATE. So, you think we who have another opinion than you are "godless"? Hmm… first of all - didn't your god tell you "do not judge" and second…. tell this to all those priests who abuse children. I am pretty sure these people are way far away from god than some posters here.

    Re: bigbigfanmj – So MJ would never abuse children. You know this how? Were you in his locked alarmed playroom when he had naked sleepovers with little boys? He was not convicted because, like most pedophiles, MJ was very careful in the selection and abuse of his victims. They simply did not have enough evidence. No-one knows what was going on in MJ's head, but I think it is reasonable to surmise, judging by the drug abuse and the plastic surgeries, that he was full of self-loathing. Maybe he had a good reason to hate himself.

    Re: bigbigfanmj – How is a child molester in heaven????

    He is burning in hell moron!

    Re: bigbigfanmjRe: Truth_Is_A-Virus – by the way he was not exconnerated…..he paid them off.

    Did Jackson have ANY friends in the world? It seems anyone with any connection to him felt the need to write a tell-all and exploit the relationship for financial gain, which sheds serious doubts on their character and credibility. No wonder the man was on painkillers, how depressing.

    Truth, MJ being a pedophile is no "fact", it's a rumor. And when you look at what limited "evidence" exists, there isn't anything that implicates him. The fact is that both of his accusers had parents with well documented criminal histories for suing for false claims in the past, which makes them nothing if not scam artists. If one kid took the stand and didn't change their story or have a family with a criminal history, I'd consider taking it seriously.

    Re: CuddlyCarla – MJ purposely chose victims whose families could either be bought, or who wouldn't be believed. All part of being a pedophile.

  12. 12

    always said he was a junky child molester, another of peerexes friends

  13. 13

    Re: bigbigfanmj – bullshit he's in HELL suffering the same way his child victims did.

  14. 14

    And whoever gave him Propfol in 1999 deserves to be in jail too along with Murray.

  15. 15

    & I hope that when Conrad Murray gets out of jail he can find a job & raise all his kids in peace and put this freakshow all behind him. I loved MJ but the man had many problems that no one, especially his family, is willing to admit to now. It is easier to blame this Dr. & the accident in 80's, childhood fame etc. Jackson was an addict plain and simple & is death is 80% his own fault. Sad.

    Isn't this just grand. Now that Conrad Murray took the fall for this pedophile's enablers of his drug habit, the truth will start to leak out. His family and other staff watched him and did not help him and now he's dead everyone's upset and blaming the easiest target. MJ was a sick bastard and had a lot of psychological and psychiatric issues but people just watched and laughed. Sick!

  17. 17

    Just grand. Now that Conrad Murray has taken the fall for this pedophike's enablers and drug addiction the truth will begin to trickle out. MJ was a sick bastard with gender and race identity issues among others, yet no one helped him none of his workers of his fake pseudo-concerned family, He was a joke for the last 30 years of his life and now he's dead everyone is acting sad. Sick!

    Too bad no one ever said no to him. Sleeping with children, propofol…if someone had of stood up to him, including his family, he might not have gone down the road he did. Jermaine and Latoya..fame whores taking advantage of his death..
