Michael Jackson’s Old Manager Says Star’s Addiction Was Far Worse Than It Seemed

A former manager of Michael Jackson’s, Ron Weisner, recently published a book entitled “Listen Out Loud: A Life In MusicManaging Mccartney, Madonna, And Michael Jackson” in which he talks about the plan he had to get the pop icon into rehab. According to the book, Weisner had even discussed the plan with Jackson’s sister, La Toya.

Jackson died in 2009 of cardiac arrest after an apparent intoxication of propofol and benzodiazepine.

Weisner writes in his book that ever since the accident while filming a Pepsi commercial in 1984 in which the singer’s hair caught on fire, Jackson had been addicted to painkillers. Weisner states that by 2006, Jackson was so addicted that “he escaped to Bahrain.” It is said in the book that while Michael was in Bahrain, he was being showered with money and drugs from two Bahrain princes.

The author admits in the new publication that he had thought of a plan to kidnap Jackson and get him into a rehabilitation program somewhere in the middle of nowhere. At one point, after confiding in La Toya about his plan, she begged him not to go through with it, he says.

“There were other people in Michael’s life who attempted interventions, none of whom came close to helping,” Weisner wrote. “That’s exactly what this was, a kidnapping. [He was on] was on the other side of the world.”

He explains in his book that his attorneys were eager to tell him that it was for the best that he never actually carried out with the plan and just kept it in his thoughts.

“There was little question that the law would view this as a kidnapping rather than an attempt to help a colleague,” Weisner says he realized.

The former bodyguard had caught up with Michael Jackson in 2009 just before his death, and he says it was a sad sight. He reflected on the fact that Michael had not looked healthy in a long time, but, claims that this last time he saw his boss, his appearance was worse than ever. Weisner said Michael looked like a “prisoner of war.”

“He had that look in his eyes…a look of resignation, a look that said ‘it’s over’ and it broke my heart,” Weiner concluded.
