 Manager Planned to Kidnap MJ to Rescue Him from Drug Addiction

Manager Ron Weisner who managed Madonna and Michael Jackson tried to kidnap the King of Pop to save him from drug addiction, it has been found.

Jackson became hopelessly hooked on painkillers after his infamous accident filming a Pepsi ad, and "there were other people in Michael's life who attempted interventions, none of whom came close to helping," Weisner recalls in his revealing book, 'Listen Out Loud', the New York Post reported.

The showbiz vet, who spoke to Jackson 20 times a day while managing his career through the highs of Off the Wall and Thriller, finally advised La Toya Jackson, "I'd snatch him. I'd get some people to grab him, take him to some rehab facility in the middle of nowhere."

By 2006, Jackson's addiction and spending had escalated "so badly that he escaped to Bahrain," where he was provided with all the cash and drugs he needed by two princes, Weisner wrote.

After discussing the extreme intervention plan more than 10 times over the years, La Toya gave Weisner the go-ahead.

Desperate to save his friend and former client's life, Weinser wrote that this was a "kidnapping" on "the other side of the world" that involved a plane, rehab facility, a team and lots of money.
