“His demeanor was, ‘I have to have this. I have to have this to sleep. You don’t understand, I have not had a good night’s sleep,’” Lee said.
Lee did not give propofol to Jackson.
AEG Live has called a number of Jackson’s former doctors to testify.
One expert hired by the company, Dr. Petros Levounis, told jurors on Tuesday that Jackson exhibited signs that he was doctor shopping and trying to find medical practitioners who would give him opioid medications.
Attorneys for Jackson’s mother have acknowledged the singer struggled with prescription medications but said he generally received anesthesia and medications during medical and dental procedures.
They rejected the characterization of Jackson as an addict.
