A testimony in Michael Jackson wrongful death trial has revealed that the co-author of a study on propofol addiction funded by AEG Live and used in their defence trial lost his medical license for writing illegal drug prescriptions.
It was revealed that Dr. Torin Finver was hired to help with the concert promoter study after he lost his job at a pizza parlor and took a job driving a Goodwill truck, CNN reported.
The revelation was an odd twist in the trial of the billion-dollar lawsuit filed by Jackson's mother, Katherine, and three children, which is being heard by a Los Angeles jury.

In a bizarre incident, a man from Ireland has been suffering from a chronic condition called 'synchronous diaphragmatic flutter', due to his hiccupping every seven seconds since last July.
The 37-year old Daniel Clavin has had an estimated 5.25 million hiccups since the morning after he attended a stag party, where he had the usual mix of beer and spirits, in July 2012, the Mirror reported.
Due to this problem, Clavin sometimes passes out or stays awake all night, and has spent several nights in the spare room so that his wife Susan can sleep.
The BT software worker, who has undergone endoscopies, a cat scan, changed his diet, taken tranquillisers and seen a chiropractor in search of a cure, added that sometimes, he can't breathe for 30 seconds as it locks up his diaphragm.

Britain said it has fresh evidence of the use of chemical weapons in Damascus even as China joined Russia in opposing military strikes on Syria, saying it would push up oil prices and create an economic downturn. In a related development, Pope Francis urged the Group of 20 leaders on Thursday to abandon the "futile pursuit" of a military solution in Syria and laid out its case for a negotiated settlement that guarantees rights for all minorities, including Christians. British Prime Minister David Cameron told the BBC as he arrived in Russia for the G20 summit that scientists at the Porton Down laboratories have been "examining samples" from Syria's capital and concluded they had tested positive for the sarin nerve agent, he said. Meanwhile, on the eve of the G20 summit, the leaders of the two opposing camps - the US and Russian presidents - set out their positions. US President Barack Obama said he was convinced that the chemical attack in Damascus last month was the work of the Syrian government and the world was obliged to react - with or without UN backing both to prevent further attacks and also to prevent the entire system of "international norms" and rules from being further flouted. Russian President Vladimir Putin dismissed as "absolutely absurd" the idea that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad would risk retaliation by using chemical weapons. Putin added that unless convincing evidence, gathered independently and endorsed by the UN, was forthcoming, any claims against the Assad regime made by the US remained groundless. The Russian foreign ministry warned that any US military retaliation without UN approval would be a "gross violation" of them and "have all the attributes of aggression". The Chinese deputy finance minister, Zhu Guangyao, told a pre-G20 briefing: "Military action would have a negative impact on the global economy, especially on oil prices it will cause a hike in the oil price." The UN special envoy on Syria, Lakhdar Brahimi, is rushing to the summit to update G20 leaders on the state of stalled peace talks. In a sign of tensions before the summit, Putin called the US secretary of state a liar for claiming al-Qaida did not have a significant presence in Syria. He said US bombing of Syria could lead to highly dangerous attacks on Syrian nuclear reactors. EU leaders have expressed concern at the pace of the drive to war. The president of the European commission, Jos Manuel Barroso, said consensus in the international community was needed on Syria and argued that efforts should be focused on a political solution. U.S. Ambassador Samantha Power lashed at Russia at the United Nations, accusing Moscow of holding the Security Council "hostage" by blocking against Syria. Power blamed the structure of the Security Council, which lets five major nations hold veto power Russia, the United States, China, France and Britain. Russia has consistently used its veto power to block action against President Bashar Assad's regime. Power said Russia "Russia continues to hold the Council hostage and shirks its international responsibilities." British Foreign Secretary William Hague reiterated Britain's support for Syrian rebel groups as fresh doubts emerged about whether it was possible to identify a moderate rebel grouping in the event of the fall of Bashar al-Assad. "The people of Syria should be in no doubt that the UK stands fully behind the Syrian National opposition the sole legitimate representatives of the Syrian people," Hague said following a meeting with Ahmad Al-Jarba, the president of the Syrian National Coalition. In a letter on Thursday to the G20 host, Russian President Vladimir Putin, Pope Francis lamented that "one-sided interests" had prevailed in Syria, preventing a diplomatic end to the conflict and allowing the continued "senseless massacre" of innocents. "To the leaders present, to each and every one, I make a heartfelt appeal for them to help find ways to overcome the conflicting positions and to lay aside the futile pursuit of a military solution," Francis wrote as the G20 meeting got underway in St Petersburg.

Miley Cyrus says she wanted to "make history" with her raunchy performance at the MTV Video Music Awards show in New York last week.
"I don't pay attention to the negative because I've seen this play out so many times ... Madonna's done it. Britney's done it. Every VMA performance, that's what you're looking for; you're wanting to make history," the 20-year-old former Disney Channel star told MTV Monday.
"Me and Robin [Thicke] the whole time said, 'You know, we're about to make history right now,'" Cyrus said.
The former "Hannah Montana" star was seen scantily clad, grinding against Thicke and making vulgar gestures with a foam finger throughout her performance at the VMAs.
"They're overthinking it," Cyrus said of those who criticized her song and dance routine. "You're thinking about it more than I thought about it when I did it. Like, I didn't even think about it 'cause that's just me."
