There have been so many false stories surrounding the death of movie icon and global superstar, Michael Jackson. From his actual cause of death to the events leading up to it, many stories have come and gone. Rumors and speculation have taken over social media platforms like Twitter, but now that the world finally has some answers, we can put some of the mystery behind the death of one of music and entertainment’s greatest legends.
Who Really Dumped His Own Blood On Michael Jackson?
It’s safe to say that no one was expecting the death of superstar Michael Jackson. The iconic singer was known for his outrageous, yet impeccably crafted performances which garnered rave reviews and made him a global sensation. He was also an extremely private individual who rarely granted interviews and had very little to say about his personal life. So, the world was shocked when he passed away on June 25, 2009, at the age of 50, from a cardiac arrest incident that was later deemed “sudden and unexpected.”
Jackson was surrounded by the people he loved most in this world, including his niece, Brandi, and nephew, Paris. The singer’s health had been in a downhill spiral for a while, and he had been mostly bedridden for the last year of his life. He was reportedly given morphine several times a day to manage the pain. But despite the illness, Jackson still clung to life, and the medical team tried everything they could to save him. The 911 call reportedly stated that Jackson’s health had taken a turn for the worst, and the nurses attempted to shock him with a defibrillator. After the shock, Jackson’s heart rate returned to normal, but he was still unable to regain consciousness. The cause of death was later determined to be acute heart failure brought on by a congenital heart defect. The autopsy also revealed that Jackson had suffered from chronic sleep apnea, which caused him to stop breathing during his sleep. In the end, it was a tragic waste of an undoubted talent, but one that will never be forgotten.
What Is The Real Cause Of Michael Jackson’s Death?
Aside from the fact that he was one of the greatest entertainers of all time, Michael Jackson was also one of the most famous people in the world for their amazing collection of pop culture memorabilia. He was known to keep possessions of his beloved fans, and often incorporated special, memorable items into his stage shows. Jackson had a unique relationship with the public, and for the most part, kept his private life as well. So, it’s not entirely surprising that his fans were anxious to know the details of his final hours, and all the things that had happened leading up to it. Rumors about the nature of his death swirled online, and within days of his passing, investigators were working to quiet the gossip mill. In the end, only one thing was for sure – Michael Jackson died of cardiac arrest brought on by acute heart failure.
Who Really Murdered Michael Jackson?
The investigation into Jackson’s death lasted many weeks, and as with any other high-profile case, the media frenzy was intense. Police officers and forensic scientists worked tirelessly, scouring the singer’s house and examining his personal effects for clues. The autopsy report was released a few days after his death, and stated that Jackson had died from a gunshot wound to the neck. Police have never officially named a suspect in the case, but the rumor mill churned with stories about who could have been responsible for such an amazing act of villainy. Some have pointed the finger at Michael’s children, Prince and Paris, while others blamed his former girlfriend, the stunning and talented singer/songwriter/executive producer/director/brand manager, Whitney Houston. A few close friends and family members were also reportedly interviewed as part of the investigation. Unfortunately, none of the rumors can be confirmed as true due to privacy laws and the fact that no gun was found at the scene.
Where Did The Gun Go?
Aside from the actual cause of death, one of the most intriguing aspects of Michael Jackson’s untimely passing was the location of the gun that was used to shoot the singer. Since the incident, police have gone to great lengths to keep the public in the dark about the contents of their final, court-ordered briefing. No one knows (including the police) whether or not there was a gun involved in the crime, since the weapon went missing. Police have speculated that perhaps someone stole it from the crime scene before officials could process it. If there was no gun found at the scene, it would be extremely hard to prove that Michael Jackson was murdered. To this day, the location of the missing weapon remains a mystery.
The Man Behind The Mask
At the time of his death, Michael Jackson was engaged in a lawsuit with his former personal assistant, Bubba Brown. The legal proceedings were brought by Jackson’s children, Prince and Paris, who accused their uncle of stealing millions from them. In the end, Brown was awarded $30 million as part of a settlement agreement with the Jackson family. Brown was subsequently placed on a year’s probation and was ordered to perform 300 hours of community service. While the case was in court, Brown claimed that he had been forced to wear a wire during drug deals with Jackson. According to the legal agreement, all recordings made during the course of the suit are to be destroyed. In light of this, it is highly unlikely that we will ever know the full truth about Michael Jackson’s relationship with Brown, or whether or not they were involved in nefarious activities.
More Than Meets The Eye
Aside from all the mysteries surrounding his death, Michael Jackson was also an incredibly talented artist who left a lasting impression on the world with his music and his art. His innovative spirit is still evident today, as his brilliant, yet groundbreaking music still sounds fresh over 20 years after his passing. He is best known for his timeless classic, “Billie Jean,” which has been played at every NBA All-Star Game since it was first performed at the Super Bowl in 1989. Jackson also released a string of classic albums throughout his career, and his last studio album, “Michael Jackson,” was released posthumously in 2011. It debuted at number one on the Billboard Top 200 chart, making it the singer’s 15th number one album. He also became the first artist in history to have all of their studio albums debut at number one.
Even after all this time, Michael Jackson’s music continues to inspire others, and his work continues to be recognized and honored. In 2018, the Music Business Biz Awards bestowed upon him the prestigious title of “Music Icon and Legend” for his immense influence in the industry. Sadly, his untimely death was a tragedy, but one that has helped to shape popular culture. He will be greatly missed, but his music will live on forever.
