MJ turned to ‘self-harm’ before death
London: Michael Jackson intentionally hurt himself in a desperate bid to feed his drug addiction, according to reports.
The King of Pop allegedly turned to “self-harm” in the weeks before his death on June 25 to persuade his personal physician Dr Conrad Murray to give him painkillers, including strong anaesthetic Demerol.
The singer, who reportedly spent 30,000-pounds a month on prescription drugs, purportedly went to extreme measures as part of his drug hell.
His drug induced side-effects reportedly included shaking fits, violent outbursts, hallucinations and bouts of wailing during the night.
“LAPD detectives have interviewed some 30-35 witnesses so far, and it has come to light that Michael was prone to self-harming,” the Mirror quoted a source close to the police investigation as saying.
“He’d bang his head against the wall, hit his fists and arms against furniture, anything to cause a cut or bruise.
“He wanted to convince his doctors that he’d had an accident and was in a lot of pain – a legitimate reason to ask for painkillers.
“This came up as part of the investigation into Michael’s drug-taking. So far there’s no evidence to prove or disprove the claims,” the source added.
A Jackson family source claimed that the music legend at times invented pain or hurt himself and craved attention when he fell ill.
The source said: “Staff had their suspicions that he sometimes invented pain or hurt himself to get attention.
The source added: “Michael self-harmed mainly as an attention-seeking mechanism or to gain sympathy. He enjoyed being cared for. It was a huge cry for help.”
