London: A friend of Michael Jackson, Deepak Chopra, has claimed that the singer was trying to get in touch with the afterlife when he took the anaesthetic that killed him.

Chopra, a spiritual adviser, said that the musical legend used Propofol to visit and return from "the valley of death", the Sun reported.

Dr Chopra asserted that the star talked about his drug abuse "very casually".

The allegations came after experts in LA discussed how Jacko`s medication levels were consistent with someone having major surgery.

They said it was "very problematic" to find the hypnotic agent outside a hospital.
