Jackson thought no one loved him
Former manager says Michael cried a lot
Michael Jackson increased his drug use after the child sex allegations piled up and he used to cry often, says the late pop star's former manager Dieter Wiesner who also said that Jackson was in a "pathetic condition" before he died, battling drinks and weakness.
Wiesner claims that Jackson increased his drug use as the child sex allegations piled up, thesun.co.uk reported. Wiesner also reveals that Jackson cried often because he thought no one loved him and that his addiction really worsened after the Martin Bashir documentary in 2003 where he was questioned about sleeping with children.
"It broke him. It killed him. He took a long time to die, but it started that night. Previously the drugs were a crutch, but after that they became a necessity. They got him through his days and insomnia-riddled nights. And the people who gave them knew what they were doing. They should never have been around him," said Weisner.
"Those drugs and the 'Jesus Juice' - Michael's name for wine - began to claim him. I'll never forget the day at Neverland when he walked into the kitchen to eat. He was off his face, he couldn't even bring the fork up to his mouth. It was like watching a clumsy robot. There he was, one of the most talented guys on the planet, unable to even eat because he was so doped up," he added.
Weisner joined Jackson in 1996-97 and says during that time also he used to take drugs.
"There were drugs then. He said they were for stress. I noticed those man-child qualities - the boy who wants to be loved on one side, the business and musical genius on the other. And the drugs moved in to destroy both," he said.
"One day he sat down and just started to cry. He had $500 million in the bank and sold the biggest album of all time. I told him he had everything to live for. There was an inner melancholy to him. Once I asked about the pills. He said, 'I get the best ideas when I'm in this situation'.
"He really thought the drugs made him creative when all they were doing was killing him. When paranoid on drugs, he was scared social services would take his children away," he added.
