Conrad Murray, the doctor convicted of Michael Jackson’s death sat down with the Australian news show “60 Minutes” for a disturbing and revealing interview.
The show, which airs tonight, touches on if Murray believed Michael Jackson was a pedophile and other intimate details.
Murray, who spent two years behind bars for Jackson’s death after being convicted of involuntary manslaughter, refused to deny the claims Jackson was a pedophile.
Channel Nine host Liz Hayes asked, “Do you think he was a pedophile?”
The disgraced doctor paused for what seemed an eternity before stating, “I’m not prepared to answer that question, not now. And I tell you the reason why – because my interview with you is candid and honest, and I will not make up or fabricate anything.”
Hayes pressed him saying, “As a friend, someone that was his closest friend, I would have expected you to say ‘absolutely not'”.
“Well, sometimes expectations are not always satisfied,” Murray admitted. “One thing I will tell you is this: I may have formed an impression of an individual based upon certain things I have seen or encountered.”
Hayes said, “The reason I’m pressing you is because by saying what you’re saying, you are deliberately muddying the waters here, because that’s what you’re doing – you’re leaving it unclear about your thoughts. Is that fair to Michael Jackson or do you have something that you know?”
The 60-year-old replied, “I’ll never be unfair to Michael and I’m not here to destroy Michael. You asked a question and I’m not prepared to answer – not now.”
Here’s a snippet of that part of the interview (obviously recorded by Australian viewer):
The former doctor still insists he was not responsible for pop star’s death, claiming Michael himself administered the lethal dose of Propofol that killed him.
Murray said, “I am saying Michael Jackson died, unfortunately, from an accident, based upon his actions. I was not present when Michael Jackson took matters in his own hands. Michael Jackson, as you have realized now, is a drug addict.”
Murray went on to claim he did his best to save the star, whom he loved and considered to be a brother. He stated, “I love Michael. I love Michael Jackson, I love him. I was his closest friend. You see, I was Michael’s doctor, but I spent more time with him as a friend than taking care of him medically. I love Michael, I will mourn his loss forever. I am so sad that he’s not here.”
In fact, they were so close that Conrad Murray claims he “held his penis every night.”
Murray said Michael Jackson barely had control over his bodily functions. He claimed, “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.”
The ex-physician goes on to say, “Michael didn’t know how to put a condom on, so I had to do it for him.”
During the interview, Murray made some odd statements, which included being in contact with Michael from the other side.
He stated, “The last time Michael spoke to me was the day the verdict came from the civil trial. Michael touched me, he put his hands on my shoulder and he speaks to me. He does.”
When asked what he says, Murray became emotional, adding, “It’s too emotional to go into at this time.”
