Uri Geller: I told Michael Jackson drugs would kill him
By Mark Jefferies
Michael Jackson’s close friend Uri Geller has revealed he told the superstar “You’re going to die” – because of his drug addiction. Psychic Uri gives an astonishing insight into his relationship with Jacko in a new ITV documentary.
Referring to when he found him motionless on a bed and high on drugs, Uri said: “You know I shouted, I really shouted. ‘Michael stop it, Michael you will die – you’re killing yourself. Look at you, the world needs you, nobody wants to lose you’.
And he was there in bed and he just stared at me and, you know, I’m sure he knew of course, I’m sure he knew but only God knows now why, why he did this.”
Uri, 62, said that Jacko, who died after collapsing from an alleged overdose on June 25, kept his drug problem hidden away.
He added: “I’ve never seen him take anything but I’ve seen the aftermath – and the aftermath sometimes was devastating.
“I couldn’t wake Michael up one day. I grabbed his body and I kind of tried to wake him up.
“I was really concerned. I said, ‘Michael what have you done, what have you taken? Michael open your eyes. Are you OK?’.”
When confronted, Jacko would say: “Don’t tell me – this is my private life. Stop, stop there.”
