New York, Sept. 20 (ANI): Michael Jackson's close friend and former physician, Dr. Allan Metzger, has revealed that the late singer wanted medication only when he really needed it.

Metzger, who testified it in a court during Dr. Conrad Murray's involuntary manslaughter trial, also claimed that he refused to give the King of Pop intravenous anaesthetic even when the star requested him in April, 2009, the New York daily News reported.

Metzger's testimony contradicted many accounts of Jackson as an unwell sole, forced to commit to more concerts than he was capable of doing and dependent on prescription drugs in the final months of his life.

He said Jackson was anxious that he might not be able to sleep when he got to London to kick off the 'This Is It' concerts, but when the doc suggested him to consult a sleep therapists, the King of Pop resisted.

The doctor said that during his last meeting with Jackson in April, 2009, the singer asked him for intravenous sleep medication, but he refused to give. (ANI)
