Michael Jackson killed himself

April 5th, 2010 // 48 Comments

Says the doctor who most likely killed him. TMZ has the timeline Dr. Conrad Murray’s defense will present which essentially has Michael Jackson giving himself a lethal dose of Propofol while the doctor’s taking a leak. No, really:

- At around 10:50 AM, Dr. Murray gave Jackson 25 mg of Propofol from a 20 ml bottle — that’s only about 1/8 of the bottle.
- The dose Dr. Murray administered would keep someone asleep for only 5 to 10 minutes, But the Propofol, along with the Ativan and Versed that was already in MJ’s system, had a synergistic effect that put Jackson to sleep for a longer period of time.
- For the next hour, Dr. Murray stayed in the room and was on the phone for much of the time. Dr. Murray didn’t leave the room to make the calls because MJ liked activity in the room, regularly sleeping with the lights on and cartoons blaring on the TV.
- At around noon, Dr. Murray left the room for approximately two minutes to go to the bathroom. While he was gone, the defense believes Jackson suddenly awakened and was frustrated he had spent nearly 9 hours trying in vain to sleep. The defense theory — Jackson took the 20 ml bottle of Propofol and self-injected the remaining contents through the IV, causing a massive overdose that stopped his heart.
- Dr. Murray walked back in the room and saw Jackson with his eyes open and pupils dilated. Dr. Murray dropped the phone (he was speaking with his girlfriend) and began administering CPR.

A likely story, but if you’re really going to sell this thing, there should probably be some child-touching. You’d just assume that’d be the crux of this defense.

PROSECUTION: Dr. Murray, where were you when Michael Jackson died?
DR. MURRAY: Helping children escape out the window.
PROSECUTION: …. He’s innocent, your honor.

    Que shocking.

    I like the odds – Jackson waking up just as the good doctor was in another room.

    Of course an L.A. jury acquitted OJ Simpson also.

    There is no way that Michael Jackson would have killed himself and what an outrageous suggestion when Michael is not even here to deny such a claim.

    Michael loved life and poured his heart out through his songs, touching millions of people worldwide across language barriers and cultural differences. To even suggest that he would want to hurt his fans, family and friends by taking his own life is just plain ignorance.

    Randal

  4. no matter how this turns out for him, he’s not gonna live down accusing this. shoulda jus went to prison.

  5. If you had to get out of a murder wrap… what would you do?

    Accuse someone who can’t defend themselves of doing something wrong.

    Not sure what anyone expected, this guy is less than respectable as is. Of course he is grasping at straws… nevet the insanity please I am sure.

  6. snarkyscreenname

    I <3 you, Randal. I so look forward to your comments. You really make me LOL

  7. “Helping children escape”: is that your idea of humor? How very Perez Hilton of you. I love good sarcasm, which is why I come here from time to time, and I’m not generally disappointed. You can usually elicit a chuckle.

    This time? Not so much. Comments like that are not only unfair to his legacy, they’re hurtful to his children and those who loved him.

    Do yourself a favor and set yourself APART from the likes of Perez Hilton. Exercise some decorum when it comes to belittling someone who is no longer here to defend himself, even when “everybody else is doing it”. If you’re not part of the solution, you’re part of the problem.

    Be the change.

    You know… for once I agree with Randal!

  9. oooaaahhh

    I just want to thank whoever is responsible!

  10. Mango

    the nerve of this fuckwit.

    outrageous.

    <3 MJ

  11. Mar

    Not funny at all…

  12. Really

    As a doctor, isn’t he still responsible keeping the drugs secured? If he leaves the room with the drugs on the table, wouldn’t he still be responsible for what happens with those drugs when he’s in the john?

  13. Dick Tree

    Michael Jackson is dead?

    When did this happen?

  14. It's Me Fuckers

    ffs, I have been hoping for fuckin YEARS for Wacko Jacko the pedophile to die. Now that he is finally dead, he is even more in the faces of people!

    I liked MJ when I was a teen. Thriller days. I have had no respect for him since the whole kiddy-little boy thing. Most people hated him! Then as soon as the fuckin freak kicks off, so many people act as if he is a fuckin saint! All of you ‘jump on the dead bandwagon’ and MJ sudden sympathizers… get fuckin bent. You’ll find sympathy between shit and syphilis in the dictionary.

    This shit makes me almost wish he was alive again so he wouldn’t be gracing every fucking website or magazine. Almost.

  20. hey if you wished michael was dead why the hell are in this site and pls do ur self a favor shut the fuck up love you mj ur the best

  21. Since we are dealing with the dead King of pop the LA jury who also aquitted jacko of molesting kids will want Dr Murray to fry for killing their KING….of Pedophiles.

  22. Hey idiots he didn’t kill himself. It was accidental and more than likely MJ’s fault. he just wanted to sleep. Anyone in the world that has that issue can understand it is very frustrating. I hate it and so does my wife.

    • Cinnamon

      I understand people are grieving. I do believe MJ is responsible for his own (accidental) death. Period.

  23. Laura B.

    Enough is enough people. All you people that are still saying nasty things about michael jackson you are nothing but a bunch of self righteous morons. Michael Jackson was descent human being with a heart who help kids in need through his charitable work. Donated all his money from his concerts to help these kids and all you can say is hateful negative things. As for him killing himself is bullshit. That doctor knew what he was doing in prescribing that lethal drug to him. That doctor deserves what is coming to him and his license revoked. I did care for life, his family , his kids and his fans. He would never have done that to himself he was preparing to do his This Is It concert and hurt his fans like that. So people, you need to shut up and quit calling this man names. He went through hell during his life on earth. Let him rest in peace.

  24. Laura B

    Let me correct my comment on that last paragraph. He did care for life, his family, his kids and his fans. He would have never done that to himself if he was preparing to his last concert This Is It and turn around and disappoint his fans like that.

  25. missywissy

    If the DR. is found innocent, it is because MJ is really alive. He would never send an innocent man to jail. Look at all the money MJ is raking in. It was a big plan. I know it sounds crazy and there will be a lot of people saying how stupid this theory is or I am, but I think he’s still alive.

  26. nnj

    if it was in “pill” form. how did he inject it into the IV?????

  27. JP

    All of these people defending Michael Jackson need to stfu.

    Regardless of whether or not he actually did have buttsecks with little boys, his behavior around children was UNACCEPTABLE for any man of his age: ANY. No man should hold little boys the way he did, nor treat them the way he did, nor SHARE BEDS WITH THEM. He was weird in that sense, and if he wasn’t a pedophile, he might as well have been. People need to quit defending this man because there is some truth to the pedophile allegations.

    MJ was also a huge hypocrite, singing songs about “We are the world, we are the children” let’s donate to charity and unite people of all backgrounds and all of that messy, stupid bullshit. This man would spend MILLIONS on himself and was so centered on living this materialistic lifestyle that he died owing hundreds of millions of dollars that he spent ON HIMSELF. Granted, celebrities always spend money, but not the the extent that MJ did. Even though Oprah is very wealthy woman, she donates a shit fuck load to people- she opened up a fucking elite school in AFRICA, for fuck’s sake, and MJ would rent hotel rooms for 33,000 a night, buy hundred million dollar homes, and run a fucking ZOO in his backyard. You never heard any news about MJ doing that shit.

    Finally, he always gave us that bullshit answer saying how he was proud to be black and that he had to bleach his skin because he had vitiligo… I’ll buy the vitiligo excuse, but then he kept on fixing his nose to look more European, straightened his hair, AND chose WHITE PEOPLE to have his children… have you seen his kids? They do not look like they have one drop of black blood in them .

    Seriously, FUCK Michael Jackson. FUCK HIM. He’s a self-hating, selfish multimillionaire pedophile that bought his way out of jail.

  28. Michael loved life and poured his heart out through his songs, touching millions of people worldwide across language barriers and cultural differences.

  29. first of all mj was not racist he was not a hypocrite he didnt bleach his skin cos that would make vitiligo worse he also had lupus (another skin disorder which is from his dads side of the family) he could not be in direct sunlight or he will get skin cancer in most of his tours he gave all the money he earned to charitys and hospitals. when he was doing a show called the wiz in rehearsal he fell off the stage and broke his nose thats how he had to have his first nose job the second time he couldnt breath properly so he done it again so with that he only had 2 plastic surgeries. mr. jackson couldnt even have a private life and not every one is perfect we are all rounded people im only 12 but i beleive you should judge this man for his music not for the hurtful, disgraceful words and stories that have been said about him he is a proud african american. r.i.p mr michael joseph jackson the lie will run a sprint but the truth runs a marathon.

  30. captain america

    moving to the “YES-MEN” environment can indeed be DESTRUCTIVE, folks!!

  31. MJ would never touch a child and he was innoccent and infact the father of the boy that said michael touched him he made a suicide after MJ-s death and the boy admitted that he lied ok so shut up and leave him to RIP now at least he had a hard time in his life

  32. Elizabeth

    Michael would never have killed himself. He loved his kids to much and I am sure he didn’t want to die. I think Murray is saying MJ killed himself to get out of the fact he killed mj himself. I wish mj was alive this really sucks. I keep praying he is somehow alive and has changed his identity and is hiding somewhere so the people who wanted to kill him would think he is dead. But I don’t know he probubly is really dead.

  33. another whining hypocrite

    Dear “commenter” of The Superficial.com

    –Shut the fuck up and just report more important lives than your own.

  34. footclan

    Seems plausible he did accidentally kill himself. While giving propofol by itself for sleep is a bad idea, mixing it with benzos is insane. His Dr. knew this and I find it unlikely he would give him more than he normally would require for sleep. And remember all 3 of those drugs are used in surgery for anesthesia, either alone or in conjunction with others. They all have amnesiac effects. He could have forgot how much he had taken and thought he was due for more.

    Or it could be some idea they cooked up since this is the first we’ve heard of this theory.

    thank you that was so briliant and so funny ( I mean the escape of kids) that I burst in laugh , but very quickly apologized to Mj and ask for his forgivnes.Poor guy is probabaly pacing the heaven back and forth trying to tell us the truth , and being tremondously angry with hmmm I dont know if I should ever call that killer a doctor .Doctor is a person who is doing everyuthing to save someones life .Killer is a person who takes that life away ….so what do You thing tough decison …..NOT

  36. bmose

    Maybe he will be reincarnated as a Catholic priest.

    how did this guy ever practice medicine??? Even if, hypothetically, what the dr says is true that MJ injected himself w/ the rest of the bottle, who’s the freaking healthcare professional here who should have, oh i dont know, put away your medicine when you weren’t using it???!! “Hmm, i think ill leave this mostly full bottle of potentially lethal medicine here next to MJ while i step out of the room… MJ is after all, known for being of very sound mind so that medicine is safe on his nightstand….”

    This doctor’s argument is ridiculous!! I can hardly believe he ever had MD behind his name coming up w/ a stupid excuse like this. Even if MJ did inject himself w/ the propofol, the dr is still the liable one here and he was definately still being very negligent…. Aside from the fact that MJ was being given versed, ativan and propofol for…….what??? sleep??? those are all just sleep aids if you have enough money to privately pay a dr to come to your house???

    Versed is given to sedate patients for medical procedures in the hospital (heart catheterizations mainly), (never heard of this ever being given legally in someones home), Ativan is given IV for patients going through violent/out of their head alcohol withdrawals and general combativeness, and oh propofol??? Well its given to keep patients in SURGERY or on VENTILATORS sedated!!!! wtf kind of dr gives all this shit to a patient AT THEIR HOUSE when he is the only medical professional there to monitor them??? Not someone who should actually BE an MD, thats for damn sure.. Just someone who wanted to get paid and didnt think about whether his career was worth it.

  38. anyway……so shame….

  39. thank you that was so briliant and so funny ( I mean the escape of kids) that I burst in laugh , but very quickly apologized to Mj and ask for his forgivnes.Poor guy is probabaly pacing the heaven back and forth trying to tell us the truth , and being tremondously angry with hmmm I dont know if I should ever call that killer a doctor .Doctor is a person who is doing everyuthing to save someones life .Killer is a person who takes that life away ….so what do You thing tough decison …..NOT

    Did not think he really came, she was some panic, go to the station to pick him up, she went to two hours before the car came to her heart beat faster collapse.

  41. I don’t think. Actually he was great……And sometimes that kinda thing happens with many people. He got many pains and he had take too many pills….so you can say it. He is the responsible for his death but it happens……….

  42. No, I don’t think he did that. I hope not, at least, because if he did it, it means he was miserable :(

  43. dfhkjsdf

    witnesses said that the Dr. was hiding the profol midway CPR
    now, you’re probably asking why should I believe that? well whats the reason you believe that the media is right? that Michael was a pedo? they just want to sell news, with people like you all who don’t think for themselves, you are their target market, and its obviously just so damn big

  44. I know people are grieving. I do believe MJ is responsible for his own (accidental) death. My own brother died of an overdose. I believe if he had the fame MJ had, he would of died sooner. I know Dr Murray is not innocent, however it looks like he was hired to do what MJ told him to do.

  45. CCKnows

    ef YOU, MJ did NOT molest anyone, get your facts straight you 1/2 wit.
