London: Michael Jackson had reportedly anticipated his own death by getting shot on stage, several weeks before the fatal drug overdose and even said his final goodbyes to friends and family, a confidante has revealed.
According to Jason Pfeiffer, who worked for the 50-year-old singer`s dermatologist, the star suspected his own death and said goodbyes to everyone in the office, the Sun reported.
He also revealed that it was like the drug-addled star knew he was never coming back, and he would often say he thought he was going to be shot on stage.
Pfeiffer, who was also a close friend of the ` Beat it` hit maker, said that `Jacko` chose the UK for his long-awaited stage return as he thought there was less chance of being gunned down than at home.
The 39-year-old clinic worker added that Jackson also said that the comeback was in England due to the gun laws there and that`s why he ditched a US comeback as people had access to guns here and would shoot him.
He further added that it was chillingly clear that the biggest danger was the pop star`s addiction to the drugs that did finally kill him on June 25 2009.
