    London (AFP) - British singer Marianne Faithfull has told an interviewer her former boyfriend accidentally killed iconic rock singer Jim Morrison of The Doors 43 years ago.

    Morrison was found dead aged 27 in July 1971 in the bathroom of his Paris apartment, and no autopsy was performed on his body.

    Faithfull told Mojo magazine that her then-boyfriend Jean de Breteuil, known as the heroin dealer to the stars, had accidentally killed Morrison by giving him drugs that were too strong.

    The couple had travelled to Paris, and on their arrival de Breteuil said he had to visit Morrison's apartment. Faithfull stayed behind at their hotel.

    "I could intuitively feel trouble," Faithfull told the magazine. "I thought, I'll take a few Tuinal (barbiturates) and I won't be there."

    "And he went to see Jim Morrison and killed him. I mean I’m sure it was an accident. Poor bastard. The smack (heroin) was too strong? Yeah. And he died... everybody connected to the death of this poor guy is dead now. Except me."

    De Breteuil himself was found dead in Morocco some weeks after Morrison's death.

    But we knew this already, didn't we?

    I like how she mentions that everyone connected to the guys death is dead but her, as if there is something shocking about heroin users not making it into their mid-seventies.

    Perhaps she is implying that she, the person who got off heroin, is still alive.

    Perhaps the writer is implying that there is a common knowledge that the French based dealer to the stars sold Morrison the heroin that killed him.

    its a new story vis-a-vis, it was published today... the news may be old, but it is the first time Marianne Faithfull has validated it.

    Wow, Morrison died of an OD. I thought that was common knowledge? Who gives a fuck if the dealer was a frog screwing Jagger's old girlfriend?
    No coincidence she co-wrote "Sister Morphine".

    I thought the conspiracy-theory was that Morrison faked his death and assumed a new identity?
