Michael Jackson - Michael Jackson's kids saw him overdose

Michael Jackson's children found him collapsed from an overdose eight years before his death.

The late singer's eldest children, Prince and Paris, were just four and three when they saw their father laid out cold in the hallway of their hotel suite at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida, in 2001.

However, bodyguard Michael La Perruque saved the 'King of Pop' by performing mouth-to-mouth resuscitation until medical assistance arrived and stabilised him.

La Perruque's revelations surfaced at Los Angeles Superior Court where the singer's mother Katherine Jackson and her family are suing AEG live for £100 million, as they believe the concert promoters wrongly hired Dr. Conrad Murray, who was later convicted of involuntary manslaughter for his role in Michael's death.

However, AEG claim it was Michael who demanded Dr. Murray and his own fault he died from an overdose of hospital grade anaesthetic Propofol in 2009.

The security guard insists he never found medication in Michael's room, but there was always empty bottles of alcohol lying around, and he feared the star would eventually overdose.

He told jurors: ''It was my concern that, yes, he may overdose.''

La Perraque said the star would ring him up ''at least 30 times'' some nights.

He told the court: ''His speech would be very slurred. There would be a lot of mumbling and I wouldn't be able to comprehend what he was saying. I think he was just lonely and wanted to have somebody to talk to.''

If Lisa Marie Presley wouldn't have been such a liar and had his kids I believe he would still be alive today. I want to call her something besides a liar but I am trying to be nice.

I just wish the people who he had hired to help him would have done more to protect him from destroying himself and looked out for his well-being and his kids.

Love Michael and his wonderful music but Michael was also a very unresponsible person. He always was saying that he had loved his kids and would do anything for them so the first thing he should have done to go to reh. and get some help. Mike was also a very stubborn person and didn't want to listen anyone because he thought that he kbew averything which it wasn't true. He was so lonely and misarable too. He was loved by so many people, fans etc but he really only needed one person (an honest woman) who would loved him for him not because he was Michael Jackson.Michael kept saying that he loved pp but he didn't loved them at all. They were just strangers who admired him, loved him it was just fans love nothing else.Michael once said to one of his friend, her name was Glanda or something that he knew that people loved him but he didn't loved them because he didn't know them. They were just people.It so pity Michael never met a woman who would loved him. If he had met this woman I am sure his life would have been a very happy one with a bunch of his own kids and Michael would have been with us now.
