Given that he was a very "controlled addict", world-famous self-help guru Deepak Chopra believes his friend Michael Jackson could not have died of drug addiction.
The Telegraph quoted Chopra as saying: "It was caused not by the drugs he had been taking for years.... He was a very controlled addict. But by him being given a particular drug that is so powerful that I have never heard of it being used anywhere but in an operating theatre with breathing tubes and a ventilator."
AdvertisementChopra, who is also called "the spiritualist to the stars", wants a criminal investigation into the King of Pop's death and blames doctors for his easy demise.
He said: "There is a plethora of designer doctors who will give patients anything they want as along as they are paid.... That's why I'd like to see a criminal investigation. That way some good would come out of Michael's death. But no one seems to be prepared to do anything about it - even when the drugs these doctors are prescribing are killing people."
MJ had contacted Chopra after reading one of his books on mind, body and spirit and the two had always been in touch since then.
