Source says Jackson wanted shorter tour Claims he tried to make himself sick Says Jackson wanted 'note from the doctor'
MICHAEL Jackson accidentally killed himself while trying to become sick enough to cancel upcoming concerts, a prominent author claims.
Author Gerald Posner, claims that a top member of the pop singers entourage told him that Jackson wanted to cancel several shows without having to pay out his touring company.
According to the advisor, who was not named in the report, Jackson intentionally took a large amount of prescription drugs to induce a trip to hospital.
"Like a child who doesnt want to go to school Michael thought he could get away from his obligations if he had a 'note from the doctor'," the advisor reportedly said.
Jackson's contract with the company handling the 50-show tour stated that if the singer cancelled any concert, he would have to pay a penalty to the promoters, according to The Daily Beast.
But most contracts have a medical infirmity clause, whereby if a performer is hospitalised no penalty needs to be paid.
It was also reported that at least six other sources supported the claim that Jackson was looking for ways to reduce the number of concerts.
The advisor also said that Jackson's use of painkillers had increased over the past decade and he believed the performer mixed his pills in order to be sick enough to go to hospital.
The pop singer died last Friday and questions still surround his doctor's involvement in prescribing him painkillers.
Posner has published 10 books examining a variety of subjects including the JFK assassination; the history of Motown; and the relationship between the US and Saudi Arabia.
His books, based on controversial subjects, have been highly praised by prominent reviewers and experts from around the world.

I must be the only one in the country that doesn’t care. Jackson news is everywhere.
Posner isn’t a crank, but his source might be. Caveat lector.
Very plausible, or he just accidentally took just too much when he thought he hadn’t. It often happens when soemone takes some sleeping pills, can’t sleep right away and decides to take more..then they all kick in.
the other thought I had which is very dark is that the promoters, ie people close to him, figured out the concerts would be a bomb, and deicded he was worth more to them dead.
He did the same thing in his criminal case because of his fear. He claimed he was sick to avoid court. He had some many vultures trying to get his money he essentially killed himself. His family is digusting.
PR parasites are like cockroaches.This is only the beginning.
Personally, I could care less.
The man is dead.
There comes a time for remembrance and then the time to simply move along.
Didn’t he die on Thursday?
I guess killing yourself is one way to reduce the number of concerts he had to preform. Little farther than Id go but hey to each his own.
Believe me, you’re not alone.
I despised Jackson. His whole family is loathsome.
He was a creep and weirdo besides being a pedophile and psycho.
No sympathy here.
Jackson is still dead.
The whole thing with the doctor (hired by the promotion company) is very strange, and the possible substances Jackson may have had in system that should not have been available to him. From a suspicious point of view, it would be awfully convenient for some to just chalk it up to “accidental suicide.”
You could? I couldn't.
In one of the more bizarre twists of this story...there is a claim that Jackson had a secret long term relationship with a GIRLFRIEND
“I guess killing yourself is one way to reduce the number of concerts he had to preform”
I guess calling in dead is even more effective than calling in sick.
“the promoters, ie people close to him, figured out the concerts would be a bomb, and decided he was worth more to them dead.”
As if part of a real life sequel to The Godfather had occurred, that thought crossed my mind too right after I heard he was about to tour...and again now with reports that he was trying to cancel shows and wiggle out of paying.
Not really plausible as all 50 of the shows were sold out.
Millions of us don't care. To glorify the King of Pedophiles? It's like a big Jerry Springer trailer park party. Creepy.
