Debbie Rowe Testifies Michael Jackson Used Propofol as Sleep Aid

While struggling to contain her tears, Jacko's former wife blasts doctors for taking advantage of his 'very low pain tolerance.'


Debbie Rowe took a witness stand Wednesday, August 14 as Michael Jackson wrongful death trial that pitted the Jackson family against AEG Live continued. MJ's former wife got emotional and choked back tears when recounting the years leading to the King of Pop's untimely death in 2009.

Debbie admitted the late music icon used Propofol for years before his death to help him sleep through the nights, but never viewed him as a drug addict. She blamed Michael's doctors for taking advantage of his vulnerability and misusing the anesthetic to solve his sleeping problem.

"Michael had a very low pain tolerance, and his fear of pain was incredible, and I think the doctors took advantage of him that way," she said. "Unfortunately, some of the doctors decided that when Michael was in pain they would try to see who could give him the best painkiller."

Debbie additionally claimed dermatologist Arnold Klein and plastic surgeon Steven Hoefflin would try to one-up each other by prescribing Michael stronger drugs. "These idiots were going back and forth the whole time, not caring about him," she blasted the two doctors.

"Michael was at the end of his rope. He didn't know what to do," she went on. "He was more worried about not sleeping than dying because he couldn't perform (without sleep)." Experts previously testified that being unconscious from propofol is not the same as sleeping.

"He trusted people - foolishly, foolishly trusted a lot of people," said the mother of Michael's two oldest children, Prince and Paris. "I don't remember if it (Jackson's drug use) was worse and worse, but it wasn't better and not lessening."

The Jacksons sued AEG for negligently hiring Dr. Conrad Murray who was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter in Michael's death. The concert promoter insisted the disgraced doctor was employed by Michael himself. They also tried to portray Michael as a drug addict.
