Landlord: 'Jackson Would Still Be Alive If He'd Stayed In Ireland'

MICHAEL JACKSON's one-time landlord insists the King of Pop would still be alive if he'd spent more time in Ireland.
Businessman Paddy Dunning opened his Coolatore House to the pop star and his kids while Jackson was working on new material during the summer of 2006 - and he feels sure his famous friend would not be dead if he'd stayed a little longer.
Dunning reveals the singer was "fit" throughout his stay and ordered staff at the retreat to keep his meals simple and plentiful - he ate traditional Irish porridge for breakfast and fish, chicken and vegetables throughout the day.
The landlord says, "The guy was fit - he was getting stronger, and I reckon if he had lived here and stayed here, he wouldn't have died."
But Dunning has many happy memories of the brief time he did spend with Jackson, including one special studio session.
He recalls, "One night we ended up in the studio (on the estate). Michael was on the drums, I was playing guitar and (producer) Nephew was on the keyboards and we just started getting a rhythm together.
"Slowly but surely Nephew just creeped the song into Billie Jean. It was just mad playing Billie Jean with Michael Jackson - I never thought I'd do that."
Jackson died in June 2009.

Bohdi go *uck off!!You dont know sh*t so get off this Michael Jackson's fan chat!!We all believe he would still be alive had he ahd a real DOCTOR NOT DR.DEATH MURRAY He killed him he didnt even know CPR and that was a critical error that caused his death Muray was too interested in hiding his evidence, what an a**hole. People like Murray should Pay for what they do & that is he killed our "KING OF POP" Michael Jackson Now his children are without a DAD & his family lost their Son & Brother, I dont know how Murray could even lie about his actions..I'm so done with all the bullsh*t ppl say, and all the a**holes that come out of the woodwork to get a piece of his Estate Shame on all of them. Now its all in the hands of Judges I hope they have a concious & lots of Morals to do the right thing and put all these ppl to REST & LEAVE MJ'S $$$ to his children..They seem to be very bright children just like their Dad MJ was very well educated as well as talented,,RIP MJ, I will always L.O.V.E you, my Heart still hurts that you are really gone. GONE TO SOON!!!!!!!

Namaste reader(s) of this comment,I don't know. Murray said in defending himself that Michael had used Propofol for the last ten years. It won't surprise me that to be true. If he had stayed in Ireland there was less pressure of a concert tour, the media and all the endless other problems he had. But you how it went with Mike. In the end there would have been another circus. Or sleepingproblemes or whatever. And he would have grabbed his "milk" Propofol. As he called it. He could have died in Ireland. He could have died every time he took that garbage. No matter how fit he was getting. The nurse, Lou Ferrigno told how healthy he was eating. The autopsy revealed he was healthy for a man of his age. Still he decided to use all kind of medicine. Where were all those medicine for if he was that healthy? For a hidden drugaddiction? The police found marihuana and a secret closet full of bottles and medicine. All registred on another name. To much. Why was he taking all that crap if he wanted to live that healthy? You know it is very bad for you? And on top of all freaking Propofol? No junkie in the world was ever crazy enough to use that garbage. Only Michael jackson, only Michael Jackson. I'm sorry to dissapoint you. I loved Michael art. But during the 90's and after I began more and more to realise that the dude was losing his grip of reality more and more. Michael died of his own stupid actions. And at that time the docter Murray was an idiot for folloing him blindly. All a bunch of wacko's there in Hollywood Babylon.

annie777: Please enlighten us, please. I want to know the truth. Do you have any facts???____________________________________________________Bodhi: You behave like someone who was abused & neglected as a child. It's really sad, but I can also sense that you have a learning disorder, maybe even mild to moderate mental retardation. You write like someone who's functioning on a 3rd grade level & it's obvious that you have a difficult time comprehending what you read. You really need to pray & seek help for your issues. Hating on Michael will not heal you or take away your pain. It just makes you look like an enraged psychopath, who is jealous because you can't get the love & admiration that Michael gets. STOP, THINK, READ, THEN TRY TO UNDERSTAND!!!! MICHAEL JACKSON WAS A GENIUS!!!!! I REPEAT, A GENIUS!!!!!! THERE WAS NOTHING WACKED ABOUT HIM!!!! THE ONLY ONES WHO CALL MICHAEL WACKO ARE PEOPLE WITHOUT THE BRAIN CAPACITY TO UNDERSTAND HIM. HE TOLD THE NURSE THAT HE HAD TAKEN PROPOFOL BEFORE. THERE WAS AT LEAST 1 Dr. WHO WAS INTERVIEWED ON THE NEWS THAT WAS BEING INVESTIGATED FOR GIVING HIM PROPOFOL IN THE PAST. MICHAEL WAS SMART ENOUGH TO HIRE SOMEONE THAT HE THOUGHT WAS A PROFESSIONAL TO ADMINISTER THE DRUG & MONITOR HIM. HE DIDN'T KNOW THAT MURRAY WAS AN A$$HOLE, WHO WAS ONLY IN IT FOR THE MONEY & HAD NO INTENTIONS OF DOING HIS JOB. SINCE HE HAD TAKEN PROPOFOL IN THE PAST WITH NO PROBLEMS, HE ASSUMED THAT HE WOULD BE FINE THIS TIME AS WELL. THIS IS A PRIME EXAMPLE OF HOW PEOPLE JUST DISAPPOINTED & TO ADVANTAGE OF HIM THROUGHOUT HIS LIFE. I JUST WISH HE DIDN'T HAVE TO DIE BEHIND IT. R.I.P MY PRECIOUS ANGEL & THANK GOD YOU NO LONGER HAVE TO DEAL WITH THE LIKES OF A bodhi!!!!!

I know that's right muscles!!! If he had a real friend, with a brain that he could trust & confide in at the house with him, he probably would have still been alive. I will always love you Michael(;.)

MJLover4life Lots of thanks come to you from me for being there for MJ. I have strong convinction that you love him, and that is what matters. Nothing would have described Bodhi better than what you have said. Bodhi needs sympathy! He seems sick in the heart and head. We dont blame him. Do you blame a sick person for being sick? No. You just sympathize with him. R.I.P Michael. I love you forever more

I'm sorry Bohdi, but f**k YOU! f**k you a thousand times over! How dare you say he was stupid? He was suffering from sleeping problems, because he's just one of those people who has a lot on their mind..therefore cannot sleep properly. And I'd like to point out, Doctor Conrad Murray, should not still be allowed to treat people in his profession..it's wrong. He killed Michael, and even though it was an accident..he should of known better! Michael admitted himself into rehab for percribed drugs in the 90's so every god damned doctor should of known that he needed carefully weening off. Not with six f**king sedatives, because the last one didn't work. What a stupid man.

Bodhi is wrong, 1st there was not marijuana found that was Michael's. That has been proven. I take medicine & I am healthy. Most people I know take medicine, healthy or not. The reason why some of them are is because they take medicine. Michael was healthy & ate well. He was the best man in the world. I had a medical procedure procedure recently & stopped breathing on propofol too so I do know. I think Bodhi has lost his reality. I will always love you Michael & I know that you were a kind generous man & noone can compete in any way with you
