Jacko-Ex feels responsible for his death

She fulfilled the King of Pop's greatest wish, was closer to him than almost anyone else. But she also often looked away. And Michael Jackson's ex-wife († 50) regrets that to this day …

Debbie Rowe (63) looks back regretfully on the last years of Michael Jackson's life in a new documentary. The mega star died in 2009 at the age of 50.

Rowe was married to Jackson from 1996 and 1999 and gave birth to their two children, Paris and Prince Jackson. The medical assistant got to know the singer in the practice of her employer Dr. Klein, a dermatologist who often treated Jacko - and prescribed him strong painkillers. The start of a downward spiral...

Today, Rowe thinks she could have done a lot more to help Jackson through his drug addiction. In the new documentary, TMZ Investigates: Who Really Killed Michael Jackson?, she says, "I should have done something, but I didn't."

Of her experience in the practice, she says, "There are a number of people who have died from addiction, and in a way I was a part of that." Rowe had previously accused her former boss during a civil trial over Jackson's death in 2013 for feeding Jackson's drug addiction.

Today, Debbie Rowe is looking to take responsibility: "I was basically as bad as he was (Dr. Klein, ed.) and I'm so sorry I got involved."

Klein treated many stars during his lifetime, besides Jackson, for example, also Elizabeth Taylor. The doctor died in 2015 at the age of 70.

Michael Jackson was dependent on strong painkillers for years and ultimately died of cardiac arrest after an overdose.

There was enough propofol in his system to kill a rhino, says former LAPD coroner Ed Winter in the new documentary. Jacko's personal physician, Conrad Murray, gave him the dose.
