Lawyers for Michael Jackson’s physician Conrad Murray blame the King of Pop’s skin doctor for addicting him to Demerol and another powerful narcotic.
Dr. Arnold Klein, Michael Jackson’s longtime doctor and friend, administered 51 Demerol injections to his client in the three months leading up to his death.
“Due to Mr. Klein’s actions, Mr. Jackson became physiologically and psychologically dependent on Demerol,” the documents say.
Murray’s lawyers now ask that the skin doctor hand over all of his medical records, insisting that “Dr. Klein is a relevant and highly material witness to the defense,” reports TMZ.
