MJ"s biographer Ian Halperin has mentioned a phone call that Jackson took in the early hours of the day he died. "He got in a shouting match about finances. That was when Michael said he was calling off the tour. He said some advisers didn't care about his welfare. I've been told he was crying," Contactmusic quoted Halperin as saying. "He demanded an aide call his father. He said his father was the only person who could clean up the mess," he added.
Halperin has also claimed that the 50-year-old star spent his final 12 hours writing frightening poetry while in a drug-induced breakdown at the Los Angeles mansion he had been staying at. Jackson is said to have been given the anaesthetic Propofol and painkiller Demerol on the day of his death.
"He was as high as a kite. What he wrote was dark, sort of frightening. The poems were found, hanging in his room on strings. He was over the edge…. Michael was cracking up. He had been injecting himself for over 12 hours, he said for excruciating pain. He begged to see his father but was told they couldn't get hold of him…. If Joe Jackson had seen him that night, I believe Michael would still be alive," Halperin said.
Halperin has alleged that Jackson ordered his physician Dr. Conrad Murray to give him drugs to "put him out" when he was not allowed to see his father.
