Michael Jackson remains one of the most beloved entertainers of all time because most choose to recall the pre-’90s MJ — the one who set the unbreakable records, hijacked the charts and pop culture and revolutionized album making and music videos.
But the man lionized as the King of Pop is portrayed in a starkly different light base upon these disturbing bedroom photos released to the public during the contentious lawsuit filed by Katherine Jackson against AEG Live.
The bedroom where MJ died in 2009 was a mess — littered with bed covers, oxygen tanks, prescription pill bottles and other medical supplies, photos newly released by the Los Angeles Police Department show.
The King of Pop died on June 25, 2009, at age 50 — with lethal levels of drugs in his system.
Jacko’s doctor, Conrad Murray, was convicted of involuntary manslaughter for giving the troubled superstar a lethal dose of the anesthetic propofol as a sleeping aid.
The images of the room where Jackson died are photo exhibits from Murray’s 2011 trial. They show Michael’s unmade bed, with what appears to be a doll partially visible under a white sheet.
They also show several metal oxygen tanks and a hanging bag for intravenous fluids. Take a look at the rest of the photos:
