Michael Jackson’s death sort of like if Anna Nicole and Heath Ledger put their drugs in one big pile

The Superficial / June 26, 2009

An autopsy on Michael Jackson’s body will be performed today, and early reports from his family and friends are indicating the King of Pop had a drug problem not unlike Anna Nicole Smith. He was taking large amounts of Xanax and sleeping pills (which were the cause of Heath Ledger’s death), along with a daily shot of Demerol (a morphine-like narcotic) that was administered by a live-in doctor who has since gone missing. TMZ reports:

Law enforcement sources tell us a BMW belonging to the doctor was towed from Jackson’s home last night. Cops are looking to interview the doc.
A law enforcement source says the doctor gave Jackson an injection before he died.
Jackson reportedly may have OD’d on Demerol. As we first reported, family members were concerned that Jackson was taking too much morphine.

According to People, Michael’s family attempted to stage an intervention in Las Vegas which ended in Michael getting furious and attacking them with a giraffe. Okay, maybe that last part didn’t happen, but the man was constantly high and owned zoo animals. Is it really that big of a stretch?
