In a bizzare revelation, it has been claimed that Michael Jackson used to consume a 'chemical castration' drug to suppress his sexual urges towards young boys.

Jackson who was twice accused of child molestation took the powerful drug known as 'Depo Provera', which is usually given to sex offenders to cool their sexual appetite, Mirror reported online. http://www.hindustantimes.com/news/images/michael-jackson_250px.jpg

The drug which restricts the flow of testosterone producing brain hormones, was prescribed to the 'King of Pop' by Dr Alimorad Farshchian.

He was the singer's physician between 2001 and 2003. He distanced himself from Jackson after the release of Bashir's documentary, which plunged the star into depression.

The doctor’s spokesman confirmed to the paper that he had prescribed drugs to Jacko to curb his sex drive. "Yes, he was trying to help him," the spokesman said.

Farshchian began prescribing Depo Provera after he became concerned at Jackson's attitude to young boys at his infamous Neverland sleepovers said the report.

Ian Barkley, Jacko’s official photographer for four years said that Jackson started consuming the drugs at the doctor's advice.

"As a responsible doctor, Dr Farshchian thought these tendencies were something Michael might address. He didn’t necessarily think there was abuse going on, but he was concerned there were inappropriate feelings towards minors which could be addressed, Barkley said.
