Michael Jackson Bodyguard Fired

3/29/2010 1:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Alberto AlvarezTMZ has learned the bodyguard who says Dr. Conrad Murray asked him to help hide Propofol in Michael Jackson's house the day he died was fired from his job Friday by the Jackson family.

Alvarez had been working at the Jackson family compound in Encino since the singer died last June.

Alberto Alvarez is the bodyguard who called 911 from Jackson's house. Last week it was reported that Alvarez told LAPD detectives ... that before paramedics arrived on scene Dr. Murray asked him to put bottles of Propofol in a bag.

Alvarez -- who is sometimes referred to as Jackson's "logistics director" -- did not tell detectives about the alleged cover-up the day Jackson died, but rather two months later. The story about the alleged cover-up broke last Monday.

As for why Alvarez was fired, the Jackson family isn't talking.

Yeah you're right. It just shows how easy people can be diverted from the truth that they already have in front of them.

Really sad...........

240. Who is the nanny that was with the children at the house when MJ died?

I heard that it was an old lady from the NOI that Germain hired. I really like to know who is the kids' tutor. I don't suppose the nanny is doing that job as well. Perhaps they should really go to a real school so that they could mix with other kids. Its all just part of growing up. I really think they should. Agree?

This claims he was fired for a 'criminal past'. I think that's going a bit far for a DUI and domestic complaint. No idea if it is true. All those who say 'why did he wait so long' to tell about Murray hiding drugs, well, didn't the LAPD take months to interview him? I will defer to others on this topic, as I have not really researched his timeline.

Wow! HOW DO YOU JUSTIFY SOME OF THE CRUEL STATEMENTS ABOUT MICHAEL? YOU JUST DON'T! CRUELTY IS JUST NOT NECESSARY. WHO ARE WE TO JUDGE? DID ANY OF YOU KNOW MICHAEL PERSONALLY? IT IS SO SAD TO CONDEMN SOMEONE TO THIS DEGREE OF CONDEMNATION. I AM THANKFUL THAT WE HAVE A FORGIVING GOD,OR ALL OF YOU WOULD BE CONDEMNED TO HELL. POOF, BE GONE!

i really don't understand why when a person who do so much to help people in need made one mistake in their life and we as humans cant forgive and move on Michael Jackson was on drugs yes but maybe it use to keep him happy cause of how bad we treated him for something he didn't do we will really never know why can we learn from him what he was trying to teach us to love and help each other please people stop dwelling in the past and look at the future

I can't wait to see "Gone Too Soon", the new Ian Halperin documentary. I'm sure he'll reveal many other secrets about MJ.
