Geller, ex-bodyguard tell of Jackson drug abuse

LONDON (AP) - Two of Michael Jackson's former confidantes say
they tried in vain to keep him from abusing painkillers and other
prescriptions, but others in the singer's circle kept the drugs
flowing.
Medium Uri Geller tells The Associated Press on Thursday that he
often had "to shout at Michael, to scream at Michael," as he
tried to confiscate the singer's medications during travels in
England.
Geller says he slept on the floor of Jackson's hotel suites so
that he could keep tabs on his friend's health.
He says: "When Michael asked for something, he got it. This was
the great tragedy."
Ex-bodyguard Matt Fiddes also says the pop idol abused
prescription medications, not recreational drugs. Fiddes says
Jackson took so many prescription drugs that he ended up
incoherent.
