Special to the NNPA from The St. Louis American


Fresh out of prison, Conrad Murray has been making his rounds on the interview circuit and tainting the memory of his former boss Michael Jackson in the process. He reveals graphic claims about treatment and fuels the fire regarding allegations that the late pop star committed sexual abuse.

Released three weeks ago, after serving only two years of his four-year sentence,  the 60-year-old former cardiologist and personal physician to late pop star Michael Jackson is sharing appalling intimate details in interviews with UK’s Daily Mail and “60 Minutes Australia.”

“You know, for the rest of your life and my life our names will become inseparable,” Murray claims Jackson said. “‘I asked him, “Michael, what do you mean?” and he smiled and said, “I am clairvoyant.” ’

Murray talks about Jackson’s perilous physical, mental and financial state and the singer’s secret addiction to prescription drugs. And while he still contends he gave Jackson “nothing that would have killed him,” and tells the Daily Mail that instead he believes the entertainer “woke up, got hold of his own stash of Propofol and injected himself.” “You want to know how close Michael and I were,” Murray said. “I had to put a condom catheter on him because Michael dripped urine. He had a loss of sensation and was incontinent.

“Michael didn’t know how to put a condom on, so I had to do it for him.”

While proclaiming his own innocence, Murray quietly throws Jackson under the bus by exposing alleged secrets and personal demons.

“I tried to protect him but instead I was brought down with him,” he claims, as he continues to share about Michael’s filthy bedroom; his ultimate desire to have “flawless, porcelain skin” how he really felt about his mother; and the admission that Jackson thinks he may have been sexually abused by one of his doctors.

In his interview with “60 Minutes Australia,” Murray was asked if he feels Jackson was a pedophile. He takes a dramatic 15-second pause before refusing to give a straight answer.
