Question Of The Day: Do You Think That Michael Jackson Killed Himself?

- By Bossip Staff

Dr. Conrad Murray’s lawyers are going to try to convince you that he did.

In a Los Angeles courtroom Monday, attorneys for the doctor accused of manslaughter in Michael Jackson’s death offered some clues as to how they plan to defend him, reports CBS News Correspondent Ben Tracy.

Some of those closest to Jackson say he was weak, thin and desperate for drugs in the months before he died.

Now, lawyers for Dr. Conrad Murray say some in the late pop star’s inner-circle should be forced to testify – for the defense.

Among them, nurse Cherilyn Lee, who went public with claims Jackson begged her for the powerful anesthetic Propofol.

“He said, ‘I want an IV that, when I have this IV, when it drops into my vein, the first drop, I am knocked out,” Lee said in June 2009.

Murray admits giving Jackson the drug, but his defense team plans to argue that Jackson injected himself with the lethal dose.

The judge ruled Monday that two other doctors, who say the singer asked them for Propofol, must also take the stand.

“What Conrad Murray is hoping,” explains CBS News legal analyst Lisa Bloom, “is that these witnesses will corroborate their position that Jackson was a known addict. They’ll still have to link it up that he self-injected, but it makes it more likely.”

We all have a special place in our hearts for Michael Jackson, but do you put any stock into the defense’s claim that MJ did himself in overdosing on his favorite drug?

    I am not hardly surprised that Dr.Conrad Murray will try to use that claim to make himself look innocent,he is so delusional! No,i do not buy this new allegation at all. Yes,Michael Jackson was addicted to drugs but he became dependent on them after suffering from his injuries and scalp burns from the Pepsi Cola incident. I do not think that he committed suicide; Especially he loved his children and family members. The truth will come out soon.

    This is just my opinion but i think michael did it to himself… I dont think he meant to do it, i think he was waking up and he tried to put himself back under but was unaware how much he was giving to himself… Dr murray will take the fall because he was there even though he had no idea michael had woken up and gave himself another dose of propofol… Michael died so they are gonna blame him… But i dont think he did that to mj…
