Former Michael Jackson maid calls him a ‘depraved’ drug addict

A former maid to Michael Jackson is thumbing her nose at any nondisclosure agreements she might have signed with the King of Pop by openly calling him a loser and drug addict.

“Michael was not a pop hero, but a messed- up, depraved junkie, who was manipulative, twisted and demonic,” Adrian McManus told the UK’s Daily Mirror.

Unfortunately she doesn’t go into detail about the “demonic” or “depraved” stuff (shoot!), but she does allege that he nearly died at least twice and was often found completely passed out around his property. She also said it was difficult to call for help in those situations because Jackson had strict rules about bringing in “outsiders.”

Good thing Bubbles the chimp was certified in CPR.
