Dr. Conrad Murray is writing a tell-all book. Hey, he has to pass the time wasting away in jail somehow. The number of publishers who care is not high, however.
“Dr. Murray spends most of his days writing what he [says] is a tell-all book about what really happened in the final days of Michael Jackson’s life,” a source to him says.
“Murray believes that the public will want to hear about the time he spent with Michael … he says that Michael confided his inner-most secrets about his true feelings.”
“[MJ talked] about his family, the child molestation trial and his three children. MurrayMore >
Conrad Murray is sitting in prison after being convicted of involuntary manslaughter in the death of Michael Jackson.
Yet this doctor somehow thinks he’s the one who can fix the ongoing Jackson family saga, which has centered around contention over the late singer’s will and the whereabouts of his mother, Katherine Jackson, for nearly two weeks now.
Katherine is now back at home with her grandchildren, but even young Prince Jackson is suspicious over why she was taken by other relatives in the first place.
“I’ve been told that she has a desire to speak with me before she departs thisMore >
Dr. Conrad Murray was just shot down in his request to be freed on bail while he appeals his involuntary manslaughter conviction in the 2009 death of Michael Jackson.
Number of disappointed people not named Murray or Nicole Alvarez: Zero.
During today’s hearing, Judge Michael Pastor said Murray is still a flight risk as he does not have significant property or family ties in Los Angeles.
Judge Pastor also believes Murray is a danger to society, citing the MSNBC documentary in which Murray fails to show any remorse for MJ’s death.
Pastor said “it scares me” that Murray believes it’s okayMore >
Despite its role in earning him a four-year prison sentence, Dr. Conrad Murray doesn’t regret for a second filming the now-infamous documentary about his trial.
In said documentary, he said he didn’t regret his actions because he didn’t do anything wrong … a jury disagreed and convicted him of involuntary manslaughter.
The making of the film, which was released after Murray’s conviction but before his sentencing, in the Michael Jackson death trial, infuriated Judge Michael Pastor.
Murray’s lawyers freely admit he needed the money, but the Conrad Murray documentary was made primarily soMore >
Dr. Conrad Murray was sentenced to four years behind bars today, the longest possible prison term for involuntary manslaughter. Needless to say, Michael Jackson’s family is adamant that he deserves every day of that sentence, and then some.
His mother, Katherine Jackson, made that abundantly clear in recent weeks.
In Murray’s official Probation Report, Katherine lashes out at Murray for his documentary, in which he lays blame on Michael and denies any wrongdoing.
Katherine feels Murray’s four-year sentence is “insufficient.”
The report says, “During filming, he repeatedly stated that heMore >

In an interview conducted shortly before he was convicted of involuntary manslaughter, Dr. Conrad Murray says he doesn’t feel guilty about Michael Jackson dying.
“I didn’t do anything wrong,” the cardiologist insists.
The Today Show aired portions of an intense sit-down interview with Murray that was conducted before the guilty verdict was reached by a jury earlier this week.
In it, he completely contradicts what he told police.
During the interview, Murray says he put Jackson to sleep that fateful day, then left the room to talk on the phone,More >
Michael Jackson is not exactly portrayed glowingly in the new documentary centered on Dr. Conrad Murray. No wonder there is outrage among his family and fans.
The controversial film debuted in the UK last night, just three days after Murray was found guilty of manslaughter in the death of Jackson. One major revelation:
Emphatically, the doctor states that AEG Live CEO Randy Phillips told him before the This Is It tour Michael Jackson “does not have a f**king cent” to his name.
Murray claims Phillips pulled him aside after a meeting about the London concerts and angrily said: “What’s thisMore >
La Toya Jackson is irate over the documentary featuring Dr. Conrad Murray to air on MSNBC. She’s demanding it be pulled out of respect for her brother Michael.
The late pop singer’s sister says the controversial documentary, which will air tomorrow, essentially gives “a murderer and convicted felon … celebrity status.”
Murray was convicted of involuntary manslaughter, not murder, but MJ’s estate and fans are still understandably upset about the Conrad Murray documentary.
La Toya fired off a letter to MSNBC, claiming it’s outrageous that Michael cannot defend himself against Murray’sMore >
As previously reported, MSNBC is planning to air a controversial documentary about Dr. Conrad Murray this weekend, and Michael Jackson’s estate is absolutely livid.
The star’s executors issued a statement, saying, “Like so many of Michael’s fans, the Estate is disgusted by MSNBC’s irresponsible and inexplicable decision.”
“Co-Executors John Branca and John McClain are sending a letter to executives at Comcast, NBC Universal and MSNBC to express disdain for their actions.”
Jackson’s fans are understandably up in arms as well, with the group “Justice 4 MJ” trying to organize a globalMore >
The Dr. Conrad Murray involuntary manslaughter trial is just about over.
The defense has rested its case – or what little it seemingly had – and is now gearing up for closing arguments, which are scheduled to begin Thursday morning.
According to reports, the defense won’t be submitting any new evidence, so if they haven’t needled the jury with reasonable doubt yet … it will take a miracle.
Murray faces up to four years if convicted in the death of Michael Jackson.
After closing arguments, the jury will begin to deliberate immediately, and it seems likely they’ll reach a verdict by Friday,More >
Dr. Conrad Murray’s defense received yet another tough blow Monday when his most important witness was held in contempt of court and fined $1,000.
Charged with involuntary manslaughter in the June ’09 death of Michael Jackson, Murray had sought the help of Dr. Paul White, an expert in anesthesia.
White repeatedly violated court orders to by testifying about his private conversations with Murray, however, and the judge came down on him hard.
“Quite frankly, this constitutes direct contempt of court,” Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Michael E. Pastor told White, the defense team’s finalMore >
Dr. Conrad Murray is praying for the prosecution.
Why? The doc didn’t really get into that. But he is!
Murray, who has taken a pounding in court these last few weeks, made the surprising statement last night, leaving a restaurant in Santa Monica.
“I would like to pray for the prosecutor, his associates, and his expert witness,” the late Michael Jackson’s former physician told a photographer.
Murray did not indicate whether it’s because he prays for everyone, because that’s just the kind of guy he is, or due to recent events in his trial.
Maybe Murray means he’s praying because he believesMore >
In their most striking piece of evidence yet, prosecutors showed jurors today an autopsy photo of Michael Jackson, dead and naked, his body lying on gurney.
The photo, admitted in Dr. Conrad Murray’s involuntary manslaughter trial, was taken hours after the star died. MJ’s death, as we know, was ruled a homicide.
The date on the tiles beside his body reads August 25, 2009. However, Dr. Christopher Rogers claimed the date was a simple error, and should read June 25.
This was shown during opening statements. Today’s image is far more graphic.
Rogers said it is extremely unlikely MichaelMore >
Alberto Alvarez just wants the truth to be heard.
The bodyguard summoned to Michael Jackson’s bedroom by Dr. Conrad Murray as the King of Pop’s body lay lifeless on his bed will testify in court today.
Alvarez, who was with Murray before paramedics arrived, was allegedly asked by the physician to put Propofol bottles into sacks before he called 911.
Whether that happened and what Alvarez’s reaction was will come out shortly.
“Alberto has maintained his silence throughout the investigation. He had numerous offers to sell his story, but he never did,” a source close to the caseMore >
