Michael Jackson's maid is claiming that the late King of Pop was nothing more than a junkie.

Adrian McManus worked as Jackson's personal maid in the 1990's. In a revealing interview with United Kingdom's The Mirror, Jackson's former hire shared how the singer was found dead almost twice. In one instance, she knocked on his door in 1993 but heard no response. She later found him lying in bed and said he did not appear to be breathing.

"My heart sank as I thought he was dead. I called his name for several minutes," she said. "I feared that he was gone forever, but then he came to suddenly. He didn't say a word, but burst into tears."

McManus did not call for help since she had been previously ordered not to allow outsiders onto Jackson's property. A few weeks later, Jackson was once again found unresponsive by the pool. His bodyguards had to revive him, according to McManus.

"Michael made his guards train in CPR so they knew what to do," she said.

Jackson's maid said that he would keep drugs around the house and in his clothes. She was angered that he has remained still so revered despite his addiction.

"It is a shock that people didn't realize he had such issues, as it was common knowledge in the 1990s,'" McManus said. "Michael was not a pop hero, but a messed-up, depraved junkie, who was manipulative, twisted and demonic. I still have nightmares thinking about Neverland."

TMZ revealed years ago court documents proving that another one of Jackson's maids, Kristina Fournier, told law enforcement in 1993 she saw syringes on Jackson's Nederland property. She spoke about doctors coming and going into the house.

"I think he had good periods and bad periods, and when he had a bad period, he had a bad period. Then he would get off (referring to drugs) and then it would start again," she said.

Fournier also said the drug use was well known. She added, "Yes, and people would say, his eyes were rolling in the back of his head and he wouldn't know what he was talking about."
