I’m actually a little surprised that it took this long for an interview with Conrad Murray to hit the internet – guess prices had to be negotiated carefully. He was released last month after serving two of his four year sentence in connection with Michael Jackson’s death by Propofol and opted to speak with The Daily Mail just a few days later to speak on the record. As Murray fights to try and get his medical license back he now insists that he never gave Michael a fatal Propofol dose, but that the troubled singer likely broke into his stash and shot himself up with it too fast causing cardiac arrest.
In fact, to hear Murray tell it he actually came to Michael’s drug party late and was trying to wean him off of the Propofol, not continue the abuse of the high-powered, short lasting drug. Murray claims that at the end of his life Michael was living in distrust of everyone and considered his family tree to be incredibly small in spite of the actual size of the Jackson family. Michael supposedly told Murray that he and Michael’s three children were the only real family that he believed that he had. As for those kids, Paris, Blanket and Prince Michael, Murray goes on the record to claim that none of them were biologically Michael’s kids, but I think we all kind of figured that much, right?
Because of Michael’s insistence that they were all family, Murray to this day claims to feel a strong responsibility to the kids because he insists that Michael would have wanted him to have a part in their lives, especially now that he’s not here to protect them. Do you think that Murray is telling the truth about his relationship with Michael and his attempts to wean him from the drug that eventually killed him? Or is Murray just telling a good story because the price was right? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below!
