CNN obtained a confidential document from 2004 stating that Jackson frequently asked his employees to get the prescription meds under their names, and that he was taking as many as 40 Xanax pills a night.

The document came from the Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Department, and it contains confidential interviews with two of Jackson's former security guards, which were used in preparation for the King of Pop's child molestation trial in 2005.

One security guard told the authorities that he expressed his concern about Jackson's use of 10-plus Xanax pills a night to another staffer.

According to the document, the second staffer replied that Jackson "was doing better because he was down from 30 to 40 Xanax pills a night."

According to the document, the guard who provided the bulk of the information quit his job after Jackson "fell on his face" in a hotel room and hurt himself.

The employee told Jackson he was not comfortable getting prescriptions for him and left, and two of the guards confirmed that they (along with 2 other employees) would get prescriptions for Jackson under their names.
