I'm going to make an update about Paris's responses to interrogatories / written questions
Paris states Michael was happy about the ticket presales for TII tour & excited about the tour & he wanted concert footage to be 3D
Paris also states that Michael told her schedule for TII was "too much" for him and "Phillips and them were out to get me"
Paris says she saw Michael drinking red wine (making him sleepy), taking Tylenol & Advil, medicine before he flies, IV fluids& herbal shakes
Paris says she believed IV fluids for nutrition and she's only familiar with Internet rumors about Michael's alleged "drug addiction"
Paris says Michael told her not to take drugs because it would keep them from being healthy and productive.
