Michael Jackson’s doctor has slammed the Thriller superstar’s family claiming they never really knew him and exploited him for his money.
Conrad Murray makes his bold claims in his recent tell-all book which reveals some of the pop mega-star’s darkest secrets, The Daily Star reports.
Jackson’s family have been furious at Murray and his book with Jermaine Jackson calling the doctor’s work ‘the deflections of a guilty, odious man,’ while MJ’s daughter Paris said: “The fact people are actually believing a coldblooded murderer is beyond me.”
Despite this, Murray claims that his book is the truth and that Jackson’s family are the reason that Michael ended up destroying himself, saying that Jermaine was ‘an uneducated lightweight’.
They weren’t around when I was with Michael, they don’t know what I went through. They destroyed their brother and son, and are pinning all the misery on me.
They wanted all his money. He was the banker for the family. He was the ATM machine. They didn’t care about him.
The doctor’s memoirs make a number of sensational claims including that Jackson was forced to take injections that delayed puberty to maintain his voice, wore a clown suit while romping with prostitutes, and had his daughter apply skin lightening creme.
One paragraph reads:
He began talking vaguely, seeming to have more difficulty describing precisely what happened to him. Maybe he was almost at the limit to his cathartic confession that night.
But what Michael said left me the impression that he had been given injections, probably hormones, to delay puberty.
After he had revealed for the first time to someone else his deepest held secret, Michael stopped talking.
Murray’s book also alleges that Jackson intended to marry his 12-year-old goddaughter and claims he was infatuated with then 11-year-old Harry Potter star Emma Watson.
Murray was sent to prison in 2009 for involuntary manslaughter of the King of Pop after Jackson died of acute propofol and benzodiazepine intoxication at his California home.
More of a concept than a journalist, Tom Percival was forged in the bowels of Salford University from which he emerged grasping a Masters in journalism.
Since then his rise has been described by himself as ‘meteoric’ rising to the esteemed rank of Social Editor at UNILAD as well as working at the BBC, Manchester Evening News, and ITV.
He credits his success to three core techniques, name repetition, personality mirroring, and never breaking off a handshake.
