Once again, London is at the forefront of the drama
June 26, 2009
It was only a couple of hours ago that G and I were talking about how long it would take for the world to blame London and the upcoming concert ahead for the untimely death of this man.
Here’s the current update thus far:
*Michael Jackson died from a massive heart attack caused by the pressure to perform atLondon’s O2 arena, his family’s lawyer said today.*
A post-mortem examination was being held today amid claims that Jackson, the greatest pop star of his generation, may have taken an overdose of painkillers before his comeback concerts, due to start in London on 13 July.
Family lawyer Brian Oxman today blamed “enablers” for pushing Jackson too hard physically in preparation for the 50 shows.
He said: “This was something which I feared and something which I warned about. This is a case of abuse of medication, unless there is another cause that I don’t know about.
“This family has been trying for months and months and months to take care of Michael Jackson. The people surrounding him have been enabling him. If you think the case of Anna Nicole Smith [the model who died from an overdose] was abuse then that is nothing in comparison to what we have been seeing in Michael Jackson’s life. Where there is smoke there is fire.”
Jackson’s personal physician —thought to be Dr Tohme Tohme — was with him when he collapsed shortly after noon (8pm UK time).
What do you think about this whole thing? It’s still qute unbelievable that this has happened. The whole world is in pandemonium…
