Debbie Rowe, 63, the ex-wife of Michael Jackson, believes that she is to blame, at least in part, for his death in 2009.
Rowe has a part in the recently released doc Who Really Killed Michael Jackson? from TMZ. She describes working with the famous Hollywood dermatologist Dr. Arnold Klein, who prescribed the pop king the powerful opioid Demerol.
There are tears in her eyes as the ex-wife admits she “should have done more” to stop Jackson’s painkiller abuse.
To paraphrase, “I should have done something and I didn’t. In reference to the singer’s death, she admitted, “There are a number of people that died from addictions and in some way, I was part of it.”
Debbie Rowe claims she watched helplessly as Michael Jackson’s doctor unethically prescribed the superstar dangerous painkillers. The Sun reports that Jackson’s relatives are “bewildered” by the allegations.
Katherine, the late singer’s 92-year-old mother, and Randy, the singer’s 66-year-old brother, are both devastated by her remarks.
“Debbie’s decision to speak to this show about what she knew about Dr. Klein… has dumbfounded some of the older Jackson family members,” an anonymous insider told the Sun. What Debbie is saying on a TV show is puzzling because she has not been this open with some of the brothers.
