In a voice message obtained by TMZ, Murray lets Michael Jackson’s daughter, Paris, know she is not alone. “Paris, this is a letter to you,” Murray begins. “I don’t know what you’re going through, but I’m sure whatever it is, it must be difficult.”
While Murray admits he doesn’t know how to directly assist her, he ensures Paris he has her back:
I can tell you’re not doing well, and I don’t know if there’s anything I can do to solve your pain, or help you with your problem. But I wanted you to know that I am here for you.
Murray then says he’s always been around for Paris, and would be willing to share stories about her father:
I’ve never been gone. I always will be available to listen to you, answer your questions or to share with you a plethora of beautiful and favored untold stories of your father, as well as his venerable thoughts of you that he shared with me.
Murray then shares one of those stories, which is an instance when Michael left something special for Paris:
I once remembered having your dad write you the only letter I’m aware of. And I always hoped that you were able to save it.
Perhaps the most interesting part of the conversation comes next, when Murray makes a surprising admission:
Paris, I too love you as a precious Father, relative, or child. And I always will.”
According to TMZ, Murray used a pay phone to leave the message. He is currently serving four years in Los Angeles County Jail on involuntary manslaughter charges after using propofol, an anesthetic, to help Jackson sleep without monitoring equipment. Jackson fatally overdosed from the drug.
