Late king of Pop Michael Jackson had a "chemical castration" drug to suppress his sexual urges towards under-age boys, if reports are to be believed.

A highly-respected doctor named Alimorad Farshchian claims that he prescribed the powerful drug Depo Provera, which is often given to sex offenders, to the 'Thriller' hitmaker to cool his sexual appetite.

Normally used for birth control, Depo Provera restricts men's flow of testosterone-producing brain hormones.

Farshchian's spokesman has confirmed that the doctor prescribed the drug to the singer.

"Yes, that's exactly it. He was trying to help Michael," the Mirror quoted him as saying.

Sources have revealed that Farshchian began prescribing Depo Provera to Jackson because he was concerned about the singer's attitude to young boys at his infamous Neverland sleepovers.

Ian Barkley, Jackson's official photographer between 2002-06, told the paper: "Dr. Farshchian was trying to help Michael. One treatment and concoction led to another. It was a slow progression to try to help Michael suppress some of his issues."

Although Farshchian has not revealed for how long Jackson had injections of Depo Provera, he said:

"When I heard of his death it was the saddest moment of my life. I'm proud I met Mr Jackson."
