Emails Found Reveal Michael Jackson Was ‘Drunk And Despondent’ The Last Few Days Leading Up To His Death
Just before Michael Jackson died he was about to start the biggest tours of his life called the This Is It what was going to be his comeback tour but before it stated he passed away.
New emails released have shown that the company of the tour may have been trouble from the start.
Michael was said to have drink himself into an unmanageable mess as AEG’s Randy Phillips write to his boss:
“MJ is locked in his room drunk and despondent. I [am] trying to sober him up … I screamed at him so loud the walls are shaking. He is an emotionally paralyzed mess riddled with self loathing and doubt now that it is show time.”
There was 250 pages of leaked emails from the king of pop what will be used as evidence in two current lawsuits against the AEG.
The singer disappeared just before he was scheduled to appear in London in March 2009 and the Jackson family could have a very strong case AEG Live exec Paul Gongaware writes:
“We are holding all the risk. We let Mikey know just what this will cost him in terms of him making money…. We cannot be forced into stopping this, which MJ will try to do because he is lazy and constantly changes his mind to fit his immediate wants. He is locked. He has no choice … he signed a contract.”
Jackson missed a lot of his rehearsals and his erratic behavior on tour Kenny Ortega was asked about his psychiatric evaluation:
“There are strong signs of paranoia, anxiety and obsessive-like behavior. I think the very best thing we can do is get a top Psychiatrist in to evaluate him ASAP. It is like there are two people there. One (deep inside) trying to hold on to what he was and still can be and not wanting us to quit him, the other in this weakened and troubled state. I believe we need professional guidance in this matter.”
On June 25, 2009 Michael stopped breathing in his home after suffering cardiac arrest.
