Jackson Slams 'Illegal Drugs' Report

Troubled superstar MICHAEL JACKSON has slammed a newspaper report claiming he has been obtaining prescription drugs illegally.

British newspaper The Sun also reported yesterday (30NOV05) traces of cocaine were found on Jackson's underwear during a police raid and his former aides allege the THRILLER singer is taking up to 40 pills a day.

The Sun alleged Santa Barbara District Attorney TOM SNEDDON - one of the prosecutors in Jackson's child molestation trial earlier this year (05) - is investigating allegations Jackson is transporting anti-depressants and painkillers from the US to his new home in Bahrain.

The publication quoted court papers of a police transcript with former Neverland security guard CHRIS CARTER, who alleged he would pick up prescriptions for Jackson under various fictitious names.

In response to the claims, Jackson's lawyer BRENT AYSCOUGH says, "Mr Jackson uses an amount of prescription drugs, but does not take anything illegal or obtain anything in an illegal manner."

Your link to Chris Carter is wrong. It should be to here: http://abcnews.go.com/GMA/LegalCenter/story?id=607996&page=1The man is in jail. It is obvious who is planting these erroneous stories about Michael Jackson. Some people need to get a life.

Jacko has every kind of prescription drug he can get his hands on. He was probably using them to drug little boys so he could molest them as well. news://alt.music.michael-jacksonhttp://groups.google.com/group/alt.music.michael-jackson?hl=enhttp://www.childrenhatemj.nethttp://www.fluttergirl.com/michaeljackson/http://www.petitionspot.com/petitions/jacksonBTW, I love the fact that you little nutjobs are circling your wagons. www.mjj2005.com is now closed to the general public. The only people they allow there are silly little MJ loving creeps who profess their undying love for the serial molester.BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Req killed www.mjj2005.com.

What do you mean "troubled?" Michael is absolutely FINE! Stop Making stuff up - and embellishing - WRONGLY. He is NOT troubled. He looks great. Why you try keeping up with the times before writing a story about Michael. He he deserves respect. Don't forget, he IS the King! Thank you!
