  3. Dr. Allan Metzger treated the superstar singer for more than 25 years and became a trusted confidant and “father figure”.

    Metzger said Jackson claimed he wrote the lyrics of ‘We Are The World’  in a 24-hour burst of creativity before the song’s 1985 recording session with the era’s biggest stars, including Billy Joel, Bruce Springsteen, Cyndi Lauper and co-writer Lionel Richie. “It was very special to Michael because of the famine,” Metzger said.

    Metzger, a rheumatologist and internist who first treated Jackson in 1983 for discoid Lupus, said he admired his “buddy” for his generosity and “positive nature.”

    He chuckled at a photo showing him with Jackson in a fat suit and full makeup for the singer’s role as the white mayor of a fictional town in the short film “Ghosts.”  He said they visited a Baskin-Robbins ice cream shop together that day, and nobody recognized the incognito idol.

    Metzger called Jackson an “extremely loving” dad whose heart was in the right place when he put masks and veils on his three kids — Prince, 16, Paris, 15, and Blanket, 11.

    “I think he did a wise thing in the early years, not exposing their faces so they could go out in public,” he testified. “We went to a few movies together, and nobody knew who they were.”

    Metzger said that Jackson seemed “desperate” in April 2009 — two months before his death — when he asked for intravenous sleep medication during a private meeting at his rented mansion. He said the singer indicated he was having trouble sleeping in the run-up to his doomed “This Is It” comeback concert series in London.

    The doctor said he told Jackson such treatment was potentially life-threatening in a home setting.

    He never saw the superstar alive again.

It was written by Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie, and produced by Quincy Jones and Michael Omartian for the album 'We Are the World'. With sales in excess of 20 million copies, it is one of the fewer than thirty all-time singles to have sold 10 million (or more) copies worldwide.
