Quinn was testifying for the defense in a negligent hiring lawsuit filed by Jackson’s mother against AEG Live LLC, the promoters of the singer’s ill-fated comeback concerts.
Dr. Quinn claims that Jackson asked her to give him propofol while he was staying at a Beverly Hills hotel in 1998 or 1999. She said she refused the request and told Jackson it wasn’t appropriate to use anesthesia as a sleep aid.
“I told him that the sleep you get with anesthesia is not real sleep, not restful sleep,” Quinn said.
The doctor said that Jackson responded by saying his time under anesthesia was the best sleep he had ever had.
