imagesThe godfather of Michael Jackson’s children has come forward to say that the King Of Pop drank six bottles of wine a day in the weeks leading up to his death.

His friend Mark Lester has claimed that the troubled star, who died of acute Propofol intoxication in 2009, used to get him to smuggle the alcohol into hotels past his strict security team in a desperate attempt to beat his insomnia.

Mark, who found fame as a child playing Oliver, also went on the claim that the Thriller singer was ‘paralytic’ at the press conference to announce his This Is It residency at London’s The O2, which was scheduled to begin just weeks after he died in June 2009.

Mark, who is godfather to the star’s three children, Prince, 16, Paris,15, and 10-year-old Blanket, told The Sun newspaper: ‘Michael passed out on the hotel bed. His doctor said he’d drunk two-thirds of a bottle of whisky and was paralytic.
