    Did Michael Jackson die ?

    KING OF POP Michael Jackson died last night after a massive heart attack.

    He collapsed and stopped breathing after an apparent injection of a powerful painkiller named Demerol.

    Jacko was said to be addicted to the drug – similar to morphine – and it is feared he took an overdose.

    Today, questions were being asked over the star’s reliance on medication in the run-up to a series of eagerly-awaited gigs due to start at London’s O2 next month.

    More than 750,000 tickets had been sold for the 50 “This is It” concerts, which were scheduled to continue into next year.

    The Jackson family lawyer said the star’s painkiller addictions had become “life threatening” and feared this, along with his inner circle pushing him hard in preparation for the gigs, had contributed to his death.

    Brian Oxman – who was at the hospital when medics failed to resuscitate the star – said Jacko had been taking the drugs to cope with pain caused by previous injuries.

    He said the singer had fallen from a stage several years ago and cracked a vertebrae in his back and broken a leg, leaving him severely injured.

    But he slammed the singer’s continued use of the pain relief.

    He told reporters: “I have been very critical of the use of pain medications.

    “I have told people in no uncertain terms that if Michael one day woke up and he was dead I would not be silent, I would not permit this to go unchallenged.

    “If you will also remember many many years ago his hair caught on fire while he was doing the Pepsi commercial.

    “That started the use of pain medications in Michael Jackson’s life so they’ve been to treat actual pains he’s had, but the use of these medications I felt had become life threatening.”

    Jacko’s opening tour dates were postponed last month after concert promoters AEG said Jackson, who had not performed since the 1990s, needed more time to rehearse complex dance routines.

    But after The Sun revealed that he was suffering from skin cancer there were fears that he was not fit enough to complete the tour.

    Experts found spots of skin cancer on his upper body and pre-cancerous cells on his face.

    The singer was left fuming after concert promoters booked 50 gigs.

    He told fans earlier this month: “I don’t know how I’m going to do 50 shows. I’m not a big eater – I need to put some weight on.

    “I’m really angry with them booking me up to do 50 shows. I only wanted to do ten, and take the tour around the world to other cities, not 50 in one place.

    “I went to bed knowing I sold ten dates, and woke up to the news I was booked to do 50.”

    Yet Jacko, who had been blighted by a string of previous health problems – including rumoured heart trouble – had still vowed to perform the £150million comeback shows.

    Mr Oxman compared Jacko to Playboy pin-up Anna Nicole Smith, alleging that Michael had “enablers” just like her.

    He said: “This (Jackson) family has been trying for months and months and months to take care of Michael Jackson. The people who have surrounded him have been enabling him.

    “If you think the case of Anna Nicole Smith was an abuse, that is nothing compared to what has taken place in the life of Michael Jackson.

    “I do not know what medications he was taking, but the reports that we have received within the family are that they were extensive.”

    California Attorney General Jerry Brown previously said Ms Nicole Smith’s former boyfriend was the “principal enabler” in a conspiracy with two doctors to provide the “known addict” thousands of prescription pills in the months before she died of an overdose.

    Paramedics who raced to Jacko’s home after a panic-stricken emergency call found he had no pulse. And frantic attempts to revive him failed.

    Authorities have scheduled a post-mortem examination for today. But they warned it could take weeks to determine a cause of death, which will likely have to wait for the return of toxicology tests.

    Those tests will determine if Jackson had any drugs, alcohol or prescription medications in his system.

    Shock

    The Thriller star, who had been fighting skin cancer, was due to start a series of comeback concerts in London next month.

    Instead, millions of shocked fans around the globe are today mourning a legend.

    The dramatic call from the superstar’s Los Angeles home was made by a member of staff last night at just after 8pm UK time.

    Fire Department medics responded to the alert and arrived to find the singer collapsed and not breathing. He had suffered a cardiac arrest.

    The emergency staff rushed him to hospital in their ambulance, as an on-board computer screen gave chilling details of his condition.

    A record of the call-out read: “50 year old male. Not breathing at all.” It gave the time of the alert as 12.21pm local time.

    Desperate medics gave the stricken star heart massage and oxygen along the route. But they were unable to revive him.

    Jacko’s family were informed of his collapse and rushed to his bedside as weeping fans began massing outside the city’s giant UCLA Medical Centre.

    There were screams of “You’ve got to save him, you’ve got to save him” as the star was stretchered in.

    Mum Katherine made it to the hospital shortly after her son, although his father Joe was in Las Vegas when told the news. Close pal Elizabeth Taylor also rushed to the hospital to say her goodbyes.
