Washington: Michael Jackson’s personal physician has revealed that the pop star had self-administered the drugs that eventually resulted into his death.
Dr. Conrad Murray has asked a judge to withdraw the wrongful death lawsuit that was filed by the ‘Thriller’ singer’s father, Joe, and claimed that Jackson was responsible for his own death, reports a website.
Papers filed by lawyers of Murray claimed that Jackson had been taking the drug without the doctor’s knowledge, and on the unfortunate day he ‘clandestinely self-administered or self-injected such medications’.
According to the papers, Jackson must be held ‘comparatively responsible for his own death’.
Dr. Murray’s filing also claimed that Jackson had been visiting other doctors who had given him the medication. Murray said that the ‘Leave me Alone’ star had failed to provide him his full medical history, or a detailed account of which medications he had resorted to.
The ‘King of Pop’ died of acute Propofol intoxication in June 2009 while under Murray’s care at his Los Angeles home.
