In a revealing interview with The Daily Mail, Conrad Murray, 60, shares intimate details of his relationship with late singer Michael Jackson, once again insisting that he’s innocent of all wrong-doing in his shocking death.
“I never gave Michael anything that would kill him,” said Murray. “I loved him. I still do. I always will.”
Murray goes on to break any semblance of friendship code by reminiscing on things that would definitely have embarrassed the singer.
“He wore dark trousers all the time because after he went to the toilet he would drip for hours.
“You want to know how close Michael and I were? I held his penis every night. 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.”
In addition to talking about how filthy Jackson’s room was because he was too paranoid to allow maids in to clean, Murray also claimed that the superstar wanted “porcelain, flawless skin” to distance himself from his family.
“Michael told me that Liz Taylor was more of a mother to him than Katherine ever was.
His father Joe Jackson was one of the destroyers of Michael, and Michael told me his mother was an enabler.
“The Jacksons only ever wanted money from him. Three weeks before Michael died, Joe turned up at the house and was pummeling on the gate wanting Michael to sign an agreement for a pay-per-view television show for the Return Of The Jackson 5.
“Michael said to me, ‘I’m not in the Jackson 5. That’s a thing of the past. I don’t want to be a bank for my family any longer.’ “
Murray also says that he believes Jackson accidentally killed himself:
“I received a phone call at 11.07am, and when I left Michael at 11.20am, he had a normal heartbeat, his vital signs were good.
“I left the room because I didn’t want to disturb him.
“I believe he woke up, got hold of his own stash of propofol and injected himself. He did it too quickly and went into cardiac arrest.”
As previously reported by NewsOne, Murray was released early from jail after serving two years of a four-year sentence for his role in Jackson’s death.
After a highly publicized trial in November 2011, Murray was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter for administering a fatal dose of the anesthetic propofol to Jackson in his home, allegedly to help with his insomnia.
At the time of Murray’s sentencing, prosecutors said that it was appropriate under the circumstances and noted it was unlikely he would serve more than half that time.
“Michael Jackson died because of a totality of circumstances directly attributable to the defendant,” the motion said. Murray had practiced “a form of highly dangerous and experimental medicine that directly resulted in Mr. Jackson’s death,” it added.
“Based on his failure to accept responsibility for the decisions he made, his complete lack of remorse and lack of insight into the danger of his criminally negligent conduct, he remains a danger to the community,” the motion stated.
During the trial, it was revealed that Jackson referred to propofol as his “milk” and insisted that he could not sleep without it.
Murray consistently denied any wrong-doing, calling Jackson “desperate and deceptive“ for not telling him that he had a history of addiction.
“I only wish maybe in our dealings with each other he would have been more forthcoming and honest to tell me these things about himself,” he said in a ‘Today’ interview days before his conviction.
