Michael Jackson opened up to Jewish Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, an author of several self-help books. Boteach taped over 30 hours of the King of Pop’s personal confessions. The interviews were taped between 2000 and 2001, which revealed Michael Jacksons words of misery. Boteach sensed Michael felt that the end of his life was coming to an end. His interviews with Michael Jackson were very personal and he felt Michael’s depression. He said he decided to reveal Michael Jackson’s confession to the world, because he wanted everyone to get a vivid image of Michael Jackson. He said Michael Jackson began avoiding him when he began instructing him to stay away from children, except for his own kids and monitoring his awakening hours. The friendship ended after Michael Jackson was arrested twice.
