All Signs Lead to Demerol As Cause of MJ’s Death

- By Bossip Staff

Reports are now starting to confirm that MJ’s death was most likely caused by a large dosage of Demerol:

That is exactly what a source told The Sun happened shortly after Jackson was administered an injection of the drug. “Demerol has a tremendous amount of side effects,” Dr. Patrick Annello, an anesthesiologist and pain management specialist at St. Francis Hospital on Long Island told “It can cause rapid heart rate, arrhythmias — and given in high enough doses — it can cause respiratory depression or shallow breathing.”

“After taking the Demerol, he started to experience slow, shallow breathing,” the source told the newspaper. “His breathing gradually got slower and slower until it stopped.”

There are also reports the icon was taking a cocktail of prescription drugs including antidepressants.

If antidepressants are accidentally given in conjunction with Demerol, it can cause a very bad hypertensive reaction, and the patient can have a heart attack and stroke as a result, Anello said.

Dangerous reactions can occur if Demerol is administered while a patient is taking other narcotic pain medications, sedatives, tranquilizers, muscle relaxers, or other medications that can make them sleepy or slow respiratory function.

Brian Oxman, Jackson family attorney, confirmed Jackson’s use of other medications when he told CNN Thursday that they had gotten in the way of doing rehearsals.

“His injuries, which he had sustained performing, where he had broken a vertebra and he had broken his leg from a fall on the stage, were getting in the way,” Oxman said. “I do not know the extent of the medications that he was taking.”

Damn. R.I.P. Mike.

    Wow… I’m not surprised. I hear Demerol is highly addictive, but I won’t believe this 100% until the toxicology reports come in.

    It is so sad that Michael Jackson, this icon, this living legend, could bring so much joy and happiness to millions of people all over the world, yet he was so tormented and sad.

    He is in no more pain now. Maybe now he can has the joy, peace, and happiness he so deserves. His legacy and his music will continue to bring joy and happiness to people till the end of times.

    Rest In Peace, Michael. I will always love you!

    This just goes to show that you can’t always hire black folk when you have money. Grant it, anybody can be shady but it’s just worse knowing that he was black and what’s even sadder is that he didn’t have any “real” friends or people that he could trust with his health or finances.

    May Michael rest in peace.

  • Mrs. Rance

    Mike doesn’t deserve debt. Go out and buy a Michael Jackson or Beatles CD this weekend. We gotta get those bills paid off before the vultures come for his catalog rights. Mike Jr., Paris and Blanket need to be taken care of.

    He earned it the right to have generational wealth.

    But this doctor who administered these drugs to him, didnt he know he was taking antidepressants, he must know. Unfortunately this doctor is black, his pix was shown on CNN today. If he knew he was on antidepressants why would he give him large doses of this Demerol. He needs to clear some things up.

    people are grand idiots to believe that the owner of The Beatles catalog and the Michael Jackson catalog was broke

    No one said he was broke. He has debt. The catalogs are most valuable if units are moving. Surely someone as intelligent as you knows that. Be careful about calling people idiots.

  • gmommy


    this world should be ashamed of itself. This man gave everything he had in him and more to this world selflessly, only to have it thrown back in his face.

    RIP King Of Pop. The greatest gift God gave you was to take you out of this disgusting and cruel world.
    So very true. Michael Jackson was the greatest entertainer that ever lived. Truly a gift from God. Now God has taken him back.

  • oooo

    I wish no child goes through what mike jackson went through… he was such a beautiful child, his eyes tell the whole story. RIP MJ
    Black people need to stop singing and dancing for these white folks cause they use you up and kill you so they can make more money off of you when you are dead. Bob marley is another good example cancer in his toe bullsh*t
    Amazon, and other shopping networks sold out of MJ stuff. people there is a serious problem and this must be addressed. Who is going to profit off of his death
    not you, not his fam, but people like clive davis and other exects behind the curtain

  • gmommy

    I pray that the Jackson family finds comfort in the kind words, thoughts, and memories from Michael’s fans who are conveying their heartfelt messages from all over the world.

  • oooo

    The greatest gift God gave you was to take you out of this disgusting and cruel world.

    you are so right

    I feel like I lost my 1st love. A love that I had not connected with in years cause of personal differences but I still thought of from time to time & smiled. MJ was that first love that I thought of at every class or family reunion cause his presence was always felt through the music. The opening bass line to “Don’t Stop Til You Get Enough” was always the party starter. Friends & family would always gather around to discuss how BAD my 1st love use to be before all the madness in his life started. No matter how disturbing the later years were, I will always have fond memories of my 1st love.

    People want to blame the doc but an adult has the right to make their own decisions.and if the doc informs the pt of the consciences of the request and the adult accepts then the doc is not to blame…look at all the overweight people who refuse to slow down!!!!

  • facefacts

    Glok9: I have to holla at you for a moment. U never miss the opportunity to call into account a conspiracy of white versus black. Have you marched on any of the issues that could make a change? Did you vote to let ur voice be heard so change could come about? Basically what have you done to contribute to CHANGE!!! ITS EASILY TO SIT ON THE SIDELINES AND ADD COMMENTARY ABOUT THE GAME, HOW ABOUT GETTING IN THE GAME!!! UNTIL THEN NOTHING YOU SAY MATTERS!!MJ is the top selling artist of all time 750million before death!! Showing support after his death is not a problem!!

  • facefacts
