A BLOOD-STAINED IV drip from Michael Jackson’s death bed – which may have administered his final fatal dose of drug propofol – is going under the hammer.
A Las Vegas memorabilia expert hopes to get at least $2,500 for the fluid bag, which was used by MJ and administered by Doctor Conrad Murray in June 2009.

The disturbing item comes from Jackson’s cousin Marsha Stewart – and is up for sale as part of an auction of materials from the estate of the star’s father, Joe Jackson.
Marsha admits that she took the bag from the King of Pop’s bedroom days after his death during a visit with dad Joe.
She said the drip had “white milk fluid” inside that “later dissolved”.
Marsha claims that the IV is the “last one he had in his arm when he died” – although it is understood LAPD detectives removed medical equipment from the crime scene hours after MJ passed away on June 25 2009.

Jackson’s doctor Conrad Murray was later convicted of involuntary manslaughter after it was found he gave the star excessive amount of drugs including the surgical anesthetic propofol.
“I was able to go in and go to the bedroom. When I went in the bedroom there was a bed there with some juice, it looked like a sandwich… and I noticed this.
“This was over by the stand and what I did was took it and put it in my purse.
“This actually belonged to Michael Jackson and it had some white like milk fluid inside of it, which later on dissolved, but this is actually Michael’s DNA on it – that’s what made me grab it, the blood.
“This was one of the IVs – the last actually – he had in his arm when he died.”
Joe and Marsha kept the medical equipment in his home until his death in June 2018 and it is now being sold by Memorabilia.Expert.

Memorabilia.Expert founder Kieta, who goes by just one name, said: “This is the IV bag that was taken from Michael Jackson’s room after he passed and it’s important to note that this has come directly from Michael’s cousin.
“It’s from Joe Jackson’s estate the provenance is really important with this piece.
“For me I feel that with Michael Jackson we have to embrace all of him, that’s his iconic pop status as well as the troubles that he had with addictions and not being able to sleep, pushing himself to perform for his fans and his artistry.
“The IV bag – although maybe morbid to some – I don’t see it as that I embrace it as part of Michael Jackson.
“Addiction is close to many families – it knows no age, race, gender.
“The IV bag is significant to Michael Jackson and how he ended up dying.
“It is a controversial piece but it’s still part of Michael.”
The website reads: “Now, could this be the IV that was used to administer the lethal dose of Propofol to Michael Jackson?
“This IV probably was not the one that was used to administer that dose, however, could more than likely have been used during his many treatments with Propofol.”
