Michael Jackson - Michael Jackson's Former Maid Alleges He Suffered Near-fatal Drug Overdoses

Michael Jackson's former maid has alleged the pop superstar suffered two near-fatal drug overdoses before his death in 2009.

The King of Pop died after suffering an overdose of anaesthetic Propofol at his California mansion just weeks before his comeback concerts were due to kick off in London, and his doctor, Conrad Murray, is currently serving four years in prison on an involuntary manslaughter charge stemming from his death.

However, Adrian MCManus, who worked as the singer's personal maid in the 1990s, has now come forward to suggest her boss suffered a near-death experience in 1993.

She tells Britain's Sunday Mirror, "I knocked on his door, but got no answer so I went in to clean. He was lying on the bed, ­motionless, looking very pale. I called several times, but he didn't answer. As I got closer his eyes were open and he appeared not to be breathing. My heart sank as I thought he was dead. I called his name for several ­minutes. I feared that he was gone for ever, but then he came to suddenly. He didn't say a word, but burst into tears... It is a shock that people didn't realise he had such issues, as it was common knowledge in the 1990s."

MCManus reveals a similar incident took place just a few weeks later when a security guard found the star collapsed close to his swimming pool. She explains, "The guard thought he was dead. He feared the worst, trying to wake him by shaking and ­shouting at him. He couldn't find a pulse and he didn't appear to be breathing... Michael made his guards train in Cpr so they knew what to do."

The news emerged just a day before Jackson's mother Katherine is due to face executives of concert company Aeg in court in Los Angeles on Monday (29Apr13) for the first day of a wrongful death trial.

She claims bosses of the firm behind her son's comeback shows should take responsibility for hiring Murray to look after the troubled star.

@ reniatko, Just like every other "friend" or "Co-Worker" that he had around him, Disgruntled Ex Employees the same one that came out in 2005, with bull shit lies, Michael was right for firing her lying,stealing ass, she even sold some of the stuff from Michael even his dirty clothes, that's where them underwear with the supposed semen,blood,cocaine came in from her stealing Michael's dirty clothes, and she put them in his closet so they would be found by snot tard and crew. I'm so sick of people lying about him for money, it was the same while he was alive, so why should his death be any different? it's sad really that these people all use Michael as a meal ticket instead of getting real jobs. LEAVE MICHAEL ALONE, DO YOU ASSHOLES EVER ONCE THINK ABOUT HIS KIDS?????????? Leaches all of them, Her,Jason Pfeifer,Mark Lester,Stacy Brown,etc,etc,etc. Every day it's someone new and I'm sick of it LET HIM RIP AND THINK ABOUT HIS KIDS AND MOTHER FOR ONCE.
