London, July 2 (ANI): Michael Jackson had a secret girlfriend, and he died from excessive drugs provided by corrupt doctors, the star's bodyguard has claimed. Matt Fiddes alleged that his and guru Uri Geller's efforts to hide drugs and needles from the singer's room often failed because the King of Pop managed to get some more from the doctors, who he said billed fans up to 10,000 pounds for introductions to their idol.
"I never witnessed him actually taking drugs but I knew they were there and I confiscated packages, and Uri did too," Sky News quoted Matt as saying. "And Uri confiscated injection equipment from his room ... Uri would scream at Michael, you know, intensely, to stop doing this but we were getting pushed out.
"The doctor had such an influence over Michael that we felt our efforts were falling on deaf ears. As far as I'm concerned they have Michael's blood on their hands, they know what they've done and there's people out there who could have helped, could have stepped in but didn't do for financial reasons.
"We went to great efforts to keep the doctors away. But as soon as we said anything and it gets back to Michael, Michael would have a screaming fit that we were interfering with his private life, that he knew what he was doing and he was in denial," he added. The 29-year-old further slammed reports that the Thriller hitmaker was gay, insisting that he met his secret love on various occasions.
He said: "I'm not going to name who she is but I think the family were aware that there was someone special in his life who he loved and adored and had his ups and downs with. I don't know how long they've been a couple. I know she's been with him for some time in different capacities but...it's up to her if she wants it to come out or the family to speak about this very private information."
Matt, who owns a network of martial arts schools around the UK, further said that Jackson was far from taking hard drugs. He said: "Michael Jackson was not a druggie. There was no cocaine or anything crazy like that. It was prescription drugs and painkillers from what I understand." Speaking about the childe abuse claims, Matt said: "The guy was so naive and so trusting ... we never doubted Michael, we knew he was innocent right from the start and what the real reason was, as far as we were concerned, was financially motivated."
