Remember that the legendary singer died in 2009, at the age of 50, as a result of a cardiac arrest caused by a Propofol overdose, as he prepared for a 50-night residency at London’s O2 Arena.
Debbie, who was married to the King of Pop from 1996 to 1999, sobbed as she told cameras that she felt she could have done more during his painkiller addiction.
“I should have done something and I didn’t. A number of people have died as a result of addictions, and I was a part of it in some way.”
According to ex-LAPD coroner Ed Winter, Jackson died of a cardiac arrest in June 2009 with enough of the powerful sedative Propofol in his system to put down a rhinoceros.
Debbie Jackson married Jackson in 1996 and was a surrogate mother to Prince and Paris. She worked as an assistant to dermatologist Arnold Klein, one of the medical professionals who gave him strong pain relief.
“I was basically as bad as him (Klein), and I am so sorry I participated in it,” she told the documentary’s producers.
Debbie refused to discuss Jackson specifically in the documentary, instead focusing on Klein, also known as the “Father of Botox.”
She has also spoken publicly for decades about being Jackson’s nurse and Klein’s assistant while the musician was being treated.
She blamed her former boss for feeding Jackson’s drug habit during a civil trial over Jackson’s death in 2013.
Klein, who was also known for treating other stars such as Elizabeth Taylor, died aged 70 in California in 2015.
