A registered nurse for Michael Jackson has come forward about the entertainer’s medical condition and what she witnessed for herself. The Associated Press, said that she mentions that he was suffering from intense insomnia. According to the report, Cherilyn Lee is a registered nurse that specializes in nutritional counseling. He wanted the drug, Diprivan, that would allow him to drop off to sleep immediately.
Lee said that MJ said this to her: “All I want is to be able to sleep. I want to be able to sleep eight hours. I know I’ll feel better the next day.” If the statement is true, it appears that he was wearing himself out preparing for the show of shows in London. She also said that he tried to convince her that he had taken the drug (which is administered intravenously) before.
Lee’s reasoning behind her sudden disclosure of this information is that she was tired of the media trying to make him out to be some sort of drug addict. Which she says that he was not. Read her full report on his drug intake here.
