Reports say Jackson, who died of a suspected cardiac arrest on June 25, was desperate to see his father, Joe Jackson, because he wanted to call off his 50 comeback shows in London and was afraid his staffers weren’t taking proper care of his money.
The star’s biographer, Ian Halperin, claims Jackson took a phone call in the early hours on the day he died.
“He got in a shouting match about finances. That was when Michael said he was calling off the tour. He said some advisers didn’t care about his welfare. I’ve been told he was crying,” said Halperin.
“He demanded an aide call his father. He said his father was the only person who could ‘clean up the mess.’ “
Halperin also claims Jackson spent his final 12 hours writing frightening poetry while in a drug-induced breakdown at the Los Angeles mansion where he had been staying.
“He was as high as a kite. What he wrote was dark, sort of frightening. The poems were found, hanging in his room on strings. He was over the edge,” added Halperin.
“Michael was cracking up. He had been injecting himself for over 12 hours, he said for excruciating pain. He begged to see his father but was told they couldn’t get hold of him.
“If Joe Jackson had seen him that night, I believe Michael would still be alive.”
When he couldn’t talk to Joe, the singer told now-under-suspicion-of-homicide Dr. Conrad Murray to give him drugs to “put him out”.
Meanwhile, Jackson’s friend Mark Lester claims he was misquoted over stories he is the biological father of the singer’s 11-year-old daughter Paris.
A source said: “His words have been twisted around. He’s not claiming to be the father of Paris Jackson.”
Reports which surfaced Sunday that Lester had donated his sperm so Jackson could become a father.
