Former nanny claims she had to pump Michael Jackson’s stomach regularly

June 28, 2009

(ChattahBox) — A woman who worked for ten years as as a personal assistant and latter nanny to Michael Jackson’s three children has revealed some rather tragic details about his life, while confirming his drug problems. Among other things she claims she had to regularly pump the pop star’s stomach “to remove dangerous cocktails of drugs,” a newspaper report, published today says.

Grace Rwaramba, who stopped working for Jackson last December told the UK’s Sunday Times that Jackson had gravitated towards the Nation of Islam in his last years of life.

She paints a grim picture of Jackson, sometimes penniless but deluded about his “riches”, leading a nomadic life, moving from country to country and hotel to hotel, before allegedly falling under the increasing influence of the Nation of Islam, the extremist sect.
Jackson is believed to have been taking up to eight different drugs a day, including three narcotic painkillers. Rwaramba, who is expected to be interviewed by detectives about whether she helped administer the drugs, said: “I had to pump his stomach many times. He always mixed so much of it.” “There was one period that it was so bad that I didn’t let the children see him . . . He always ate too little and mixed too much.”

Miss Rwaramba also claimed that Jackson sometimes hid his money in black rubbish sacks and under the carpets at the Los Angeles house he was renting.

She said she once called in the singer’s mother, Katherine, and sister, Janet, to attempt an “intervention”, trying to persuade the singer to come to terms with his addiction. Instead Jackson turned on her, accusing her of betraying him.

“He didn’t want to listen; that was one of the times he let me go,” she said. Rwaramba, who is from Rwanda, worked for Jackson for more than a decade but was dismissed for a final time last December. She said she had been back to see the children since then.

She said when she returned in April, Jackson was so short of money that she had to buy “happy birthday” balloons for one of the children with her own credit card.
