Brian Oxman, the Jackson family attorney, called into CNN this evening. Despite the fact that several sources have confirmed that Michael Jackson is dead, Oxman would not, but he did speak candidly about Jackson's troublesome prescription drug use.
Even though Oxman was calling from UCLA Medical Center—where Jackson was brought, and where his family members are convening—he would not confirm his death, which is bizarre. But bizarre has become synonymous with Jackson's life over the last two decades.
Most interestingly, though, Oxman says that Jackson was in fine physical condition, but that he had a very serious problem with prescription medication, and that the people that were surrounding him were enablers. Oxman went on to say, "If you think the case with Anna Nicole Smith was an abuse, it's nothing in comparison to what we have seen taking place in Michael Jackson's life."
