Thoughts on Love, Sex & Entertainment

Michael Jacson’s drug addiction – IS JANET FOLLOWING IN HER BROTHERS FOOT STEPS?

One of the doctors who has treated Michael Jackson, Dr. Allan Metzger, went on tour with Jackson and even videotaped Jackson’s wedding to Debbie Rowe, mother of two of his alleged children.  He has already been reprimanded once by the Medical Board of California for writing fraudulent prescriptions for Janet Jackson, Michael’s sister.

Dr. Allan Metzger received a public letter of reprimand from the Medical Board in September, 2000. The letter states, “You engaged in fraudulent medical practice based on prescriptions written for an international entertainer, using a false/fictitious name.” Dr. Metzger reported that the entertainer that he wrote the false/fictitious prescriptions for was Janet Jackson.

Michael Jackson reportedly had Lupus and Dr. Metzger is a lupus specialist.  Dr. Metzger also traveled with Michael during the History Tour in 1996.

Dr. Metzger reported that in the late 90s, he wrote prescriptions for Janet Jackson using the name of her private chef, Ricardo Macchi. Dr. Metzger stated that the prescriptions were for diuretics. He also wrote a prescription for a hepatitis B injection.   He states that  he wrote it because Janet was going on tour and wanted to guard against the disease. Again, the name on the prescription was Ricardo Macchi, even though it was for Janet.  Dr. Metzger reportedly said, “I had done this for Janet for her anonymity.”

My question is, neither of these drugs were embarrassing to receive and one was actually for preventative measures.  Good thinking, right?  So why would they have needed to been written for her anonymity?  Not only is it illegal and morally wrong to write a prescription using someone else’s name, it is also illegal to release medical information to others without written consent; according to HIPPA regulations.

Macchi sued Dr. Metzger but the Dr. says the suit was dropped and no money was paid out.

As for Michael, Dr. Metzger says, “I have not treated Michael Jackson for many years.” Metzger says he has talked to Jackson on the phone over the years, even giving him medical advice. As for whether Dr. Metzger prescribed medications for Michael, he wouldn’t say: “I am not at liberty to discuss Michael’s medical care.”  From what I understand, once a patient, in this case Michael Jackson, dies,  the restrictions against discussing their medical care is dissolved. 

He was asked if he ever prescribed medications to Michael using an alias. His response: “I have not treated him for ages.” Metzger said he last spoke with Michael in April. The doctor says he talked to Jackson about the tour, his children, nutrition and hydration.

These were “yes” or “no” questions.  So basically he refused to answer them.  To me, refusal to answer = guilty.

Dr. Metzger added, “I have nothing to do with this tragedy with Michael. I have not prescribed any medication in relation to what happened to him.”

The bigger question at this point I think, is Janet traveling down the same path as her brother Michael?  I am actually a bigger fan of Janet than I am of Michael, although I love them both.  I just hope that she gets help before her life ends as his did.

    • Jumping the gun is what we do here — it’s a gossip site, dumb ass — or do you want to tell us you have first hand knowledge of Janet’s personal state of affairs? Geeze…

  2. I love Janet and I hope that she’s not on drugs. She and Michael were very close however and they are both very much alike. Just the fact that she felt the need to hide the fact that she was even receiving meds along with the fact that she was willing to receive them under her employees name without his permission, raises some questions…

    I just hope that if she is, and I hope that she is not, that she is able to get help or that her loved ones will help her before it goes too far.

  3. Janet on drugs? Big surprise. After the tit slip, I’m underwhelmed. I’ve heard of 2 or 3 different aliases now that Michael used frequently, and there’s probably many more. Now that the DEA is involved, I’ll bet there’s a whole slew of doctors that could use a valium or two…
