Did Michael Jackson die from an accidental overdose? Weigh in with your thoughts.

King of Pop

Michael Jackson’s cause of death found. Was Michael Jackson’s death caused by a painkiller overdose? Sources report Michael Jackson went into cardiac arrest after an injection of Demerol, a narcotic pain reliever similar to Morphine.

According to TMZ:

Law enforcement sources tell us a BMW belonging to the doctor was towed from Jackson’s home last night. Cops are looking to interview the doc.

A law enforcement source says:

The doctor gave Jackson an injection before he died.

Jackson reportedly may have OD’d on Demerol. As we first reported, family members were concerned that Jackson was taking too much morphine.

A source at the UCLA hospital’s emergency room said:

“Shortly after taking the Demerol he started to experience slow shallow breathing. His breathing gradually got slower and slower until it stopped.”

“His staff started mouth-to-mouth and an ambulance was called which got there in eight minutes “But found he was in full respiratory arrest, no breathing and no pulse. They started full CPR and rushed him to hospital.”

“When he arrived they started resuscitation, giving him heart shocks and inserted a breathing tube and other supportive measures to try and save his life.

“He never regained consciousness.The family was told that he had passed.”

The Jackson’s family lawyer, Brian Oxman, said:

Michael had collapsed at the home he rented in Los Angeles’ Holmby Hills, with his brother Randy Jackson present.

He had been taking prescription painkillers including anti-anxiety drugs Xanax, Zoloft and painkiller Demerol in recent months.

Jackson may have had trouble with prescription drugs as he prepared for his London show.

“This was something which I feared and something which I warned about,” Oxman said on CNN. “I can tell you for sure that this is something I warned about. Where there is smoke there is fire.”

So what exactly is Demerol?

Demerol brand of meperidine is a synthetic opiate narcotic, very similar to Morphine. It is very addictive.

Celebrity Breakups: Marilyn Manson and Evan Rachel Wood

Celebrity Breakup

Shock rocker Marilyn Manson and actress Evan Rachel Wood have split. The couple broke up after a bitter argument on October 23 over Evan’s 21-year-old brother, Ira, who had been living with the celebrity pair.

Evan Rachel Wood issued the following statement:

“Manson and I both decided to take some time apart so we could concentrate on work. Someone used that opportunity to kick us while we were down and sell a completely false story. Manson owns the house he lives in. My brother has never stayed there and the person that said such horrible things about Manson being ‘controlling’ and ‘emotionally abusive’ is certainly no source ‘close’ to me.”

“Manson has been by my side and taken care of me through the best and worst times. I love him as a person and as an artist. I will always be proud to have been a part of that.

“If any more attacks are made on us, it is the act of a desperate, selfish person, who is angry to no longer be a part of my life. No further comment will be made and we request our privacy at this time.”

Meanwhile in an interview with Spin Magazine, Marilyn Manson discusses his split with actress Evan Rachel Wood. Manson says:

“I sing about it on ‘Into the Fire.’ I say, ‘If you want to hit bottom, don’t bother trying to take me with you.’ My lowest point was Christmas Day 2008, because I didn’t speak to my family. My walls were covered in scrawlings of the lyrics and cocaine bags nailed to the wall. And I did have an experience where I was struggling to deal with being alone and being forsaken and being betrayed by putting your trust in one person, and making the mistake of that being the wrong person. And that’s a mistake that everyone can relate to. I made the mistake of trying to, desperately, grasp on and save that and own it. And every time I called her that day — I called 158 times — I took a razorblade and I cut myself on my face or on my hands.”

“I look back and it was a really stupid thing to do. This was intentional, this was a scarification, and this was like a tattoo. I wanted to show her the pain she put me through. It was like, ‘I want you to physically see what you’ve done.’ It sounds made up but it’s completely true and I don’t give a shit if people believe it or not. I’ve got the scars to prove it. I didn’t want people to ask me every time I did an interview, ‘Oh, is this record about your relationship with your ex-girlfriend?’ But that damage is part of it, and the song ‘I Want to Kill You Like They Do in The Movies’ is about my fantasies. I have fantasies every day about smashing her skull in with a sledgehammer.”

Marilyn and Wood began dating in December 2006, following his split from then-wife, burlesque star Dita Von Teese.
