Michael Jackson can’t seem to rest in peace!
And apparently, the King of Pop had a hard time resting before his tragic death as well.
We already knew that MJ had major drug abuse issues, but now his close friend and the godfather to his children, Mark Lester, claims that MJ’s wine consumption was also through the roof leading up to his passing.
According to Mark, Michael drank six bottles of wine a day in the weeks before his death. Bottles that Mark brought him.
Mark said the following:
"He sobered up enough to struggle through the This Is It speech, which he just about got away with."
MJ convinced Mark to smuggle him the liquor, saying that he needed it to help him sleep. This is the same reasoning he used to get doctors to give him high-strength medications that would essentially knock him out.
So so sad. We still can’t get over how terrible this whole ordeal has been, and continues to be, as piece-by-piece the whole story slowly comes together.
