Nearly four years after Michael Jackson’s deadly overdose on Propofol information about the legendary singer still continues to leak out here and there. Mark Lester was so close to Michael that he served as godfather to all three of his kids and he recently spoke about some of Michael’s addictions. According to Lester he would often smuggle bottles of booze past the star’s security team and bring them to him on the sly. He agrees with the previous reports that Michael has serious insomnia and was desperate to sleep. According to Lester near the time of Michael’s death he was consuming up to six bottles of wine each day and it was not at all uncommon for the staff to find Michael passed out or even paralytic.
He also insists that Michael was found near paralytic right before that infamous press conference that announced his This Is It tour that never actually happened. Somehow he got through the conference by the skin of his teeth. Lester has previously spoken about his relationship with Michael and insists that he quite possible is Paris Jackson’s biological father. Lester claims that he was a sperm donor for Michael back in 1996 and would welcome a paternity test, especially now that Paris could use a father figure in her life.
Are you surprised to hear these new allegations about Michael’s addictive behavior? It sounds like he was a real wreck behind the scenes, but is that really a shock?
