Quoted: "...he could sleep in Michael Jackson's old hyperbaric chamber,...

Jackson neither owned nor used a hyperbaric chamber. He purchased one and donated it to the burn unit that bore his name at the Brotman Medical Center before it closed in August 1987.

As a lark, he posed for a photo in the unit. The photo made its way to the National Enquirer. At that time, most news consumers were not nearly as skeptical as they are today, so "Michael Jackson sleeps in a hyperbaric chamber" became the negative news meme that (apparently) will never die.
