Michael Jackson's doctors fueled addiction?

Aug 14 2013, 8:24pm CDT | by Bang Showbiz

Debbie Rowe claims Michael Jackson's doctors competed to supply him with "better" drugs.

The former nurse, who was married to the King of Pop for three years until 1999 and is the mother of his two eldest children, Prince Michael, 17, and Paris, 15, accused her late ex-husband's medical advisors of fueling his addiction by trying to outdo one another.

Debbie testified in the Jackson family's wrongful death lawsuit against concert promoters AEG Live in Los Angeles on Wednesday (08.14.13) that her former employer, Dr. Arnie Klein, and Dr. Steven Hoefflin, held a "p***ing match" to see who could supply the 'Thriller' hitmaker with "better" drugs, according to the MailOnline website.

She said: "Michael had a very low pain tolerance and his fear of pain was incredible. I think the doctors took advantage of him that way."

Michael allegedly trusted them to prescribe him with medication but they did not act in his best interest as they consistently tried to outdo each other by giving him stronger doses of painkillers, such as Diprivan and Demerol.

She said: "These idiots were going back and forth the whole time, not caring about him," adding that Dr. Conrad Murray then "got in there and killed him."

She said: "The only physician who ever did anything, the only physician who cared for Michael was Allan Metzger.

"I was probably one of the only ones who said no to MJ."

The Jackson family are suing AEG Live, as they believe the company negligently hired and supervised Dr. Conrad Murray, who is currently serving four years imprisonment for involuntary manslaughter as he administered the lethal dose of Propofol, which killed Michael in 2009.

In its infinite wisdom to cover its ass over fucking up the Ray Rice debacle, the NFL pulled a Rihanna song from its Thursday night football coverage so people wouldn’t think about Rihanna being punched in the face by Chris Brown.
