Michael Jackson Allegedly Used Many Aliases To Get Access To Drugs

Note: This article may contain commentary or the author's opinion.

Late singer Michael Jackson, popularly honored as the King of Pop, had over a dozen aliases and allegedly used all to get drugs. This information is according to TMZ’s new documentary scheduled to air in September.

The documentary dubbed “TMZ Investigates: Who Really Killed Michael Jackson?” will start airing on Tuesday, September 6th. A preview of this documentary shows former physician Conrad Murray to Jackson claiming the deceased singer was a drug addict. Murray added that Jackson was also very manipulative and used his fake identities to get what he wanted.

In 2009, the 50-year-old musician was found dead in his home after suffering from a cardiac arrest. The arrest was allegedly caused by anesthetic propofol which Murray routinely administered to Jackson.

Michael Jackson’s death was ruled a homicide then, and Murray took all the blame for this death as officials said he administered a fatal dose of the medicine. The Court found him guilty of involuntary manslaughter and sentenced him to spend four years in prison, but he served just two. 

However, TMZ’s new documentary asserts that Jackson had been a drug abuser for most of his life. It added that Jackson could do this thanks to the physicians he had at his disposal, and Murray was the only unlucky one who spent time in jail.

Murray added that he was unaware that Jackson had other physicians tending to him at the time who could have also been recommending drugs to him.

In addition, the Los Angeles Police Department Detective Orlando Martinez seems to believe that Murray’s prescription cannot be entirely faulted for Jackson’s death. Martinez was the LAPD detective assigned to Jackson’s homicide case in 2009.

He said, “It’s a lot more complicated than just: Dr Murray was at his bedside when he died. Circumstances had been leading up to his death for years, and all of these different medical professionals had allowed Michael to dictate his own terms, get the medicines he wanted, when he wanted them, where he wanted them. All of them are the reason why he’s dead today.”

According to Ed Winter, the assistant chief coroner for LA County, Jackson had also been using propofol in large doses at the time. Reports found that the singer was obsessed with the medicine, which “was the only way he could go to sleep, especially when he was getting ready for a tour.”

Murray added that Jackson had been using the drugs for decades, and different doctors worldwide had given them to him. More so, these doctors allowed him to inject the medicine himself. 

Furthermore, the documentary adds that Jackson was also hooked on other substances. His ex-wife Debbie Rowe testified in support of this. She claimed that Arnold Klein, the famed Hollywood dermatologist who is also late, allowed Jackson to get high on Demerol. 

She added, “There were times he would write prescriptions for things that had nothing to do with what we were treating them for. He would write prescriptions that were not conducive to what a dermatologist would normally write a prescription for.”

His plastic surgeon, Dr Harry Glassman, asserted in this documentary that the late singer was responsible for his demise. However, he certainly got a lot of help from the medical community, having 19 different aliases for getting drugs.
