Dr. Conrad Murray: The Strip Club Story is BS

6/23/2010 11:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A rep for Dr. Conrad Murray's defense team tells TMZ Joe Jackson's lawyer is flat-out wrong when he claims Dr. Murray was drinking at a strip club hours before Michael Jackson died.

TMZ broke the story ... Joe Jackson's lawyer, Brian Oxman, has served Murray with legal papers as a prelude to a wrongful death lawsuit.  In those papers, Oxman claims Dr. Murray was at Sam's Hofbrau -- a strip club -- on June 25, 2009, prior to treating Jackson. 

The rep for the defense team tells TMZ Dr. Murray was not at a strip club when Oxman claims, nor was he there the night before.  As the rep put it, "In the weeks before Michael died, Murray barely had time to take a shower."

The rep also says Oxman got it wrong when he claimed Dr. Murray was drinking, because "He does not drink."

As for whether Murray has ever frequented the club, the rep did not know one way or the other.  But one of the waitresses at the club tells TMZ Dr. Murray was at the club sometime in June of last year.  A stripper who works at the club tells TMZ she vividly remembers the night before Michael died because she's a big MJ fan, and says, "It was dead that night.  Dr. Murray definitely was not there."

The club's owner tells TMZ ... at least twice in the last 6 months, a private investigator came to the club and asked various employees a bunch of questions about Murray and if they remembered seeing him at the club.

Interesting note -- we're told Quentin Tarantino liked Sam's Hofbrau so much, he used it in the movie,  "Jackie Brown."

Hahahaha yeah no kidding. There's so many people on here that say "oh my god, Michael was so beautiful". Like, are we all looking at the same pictures of the wacko?! So to all those people...if you can look at that freakshow and think beautiful, you need a psychological evaluation and a punch in the teeth.

Idiot!    

Joe jackson is a douchebag; his case doesn't hold water. This is why our court system is so screwed up; idiot pimp assh*les like joe jackson file ridiculous lawsuits, hoping for a quick settlement. I am not a Dr. Murry supporter, but I hope he countersues for this ridiculous lawsuit & wins money & attorney fees from pimp daddy joe...

...The waitress at the Hof-Brau knows Conrad wasn't there that night because she's an MJ fan and it was dead? Nobody knew then that Murray was his Dr.....what am I missing? I look at this and say,"geez, a year and a half ago, MJ and his kids were moving into Holmby Hills to start a new adventure. So tragic. Then I say...I really believe Michael didn't have it in him to pull off this concert series. You know there would've been cancellations, rumors, could you imagine if he had a Whitney Houston night, because of the drugs...don't say that wouldn't happen. He hadn't been on stage in years. The concert was so much noise, fireworks, distraction, special effects. I'm not being disrespectful when I say we didn't get to see ALL the footage of rehearsals. I heard the original soundtrack played behind MJ at the Staple's Center on a few occasions during the film. Didn't you guys? As much as we miss him, and this whole thing isn't fair, Michael Jackson had a huge ego. To go out and be any less than he was back in the day would ruin him. For his career and his legacy, maybe God did him a favor. All the broken stuff around him now is either fixed, on it's way to being fixed, or just doesn't matter anymore. The guy was a genius in the entertainment world, a great father, a great business man who let idiots handle his affairs, a spoiled brat, a drug addict. Can you imagine what it would have done to him to fail onstage, in front of the kids no less? Maybe he thought that too. I got a hunch that he was freaking the f--k out about 50 concerts, and his dope, and the kids there in London and it all.

THERE IS NO WAY THE OWNERS OR EMPLOYEES OF THIS BAR ARE GOING TO ACKNOWLEDGE THAT MURRAY WAS THERE. IF IT GOT OUT THAT THEY CONFIRMED MURRAYS PRESENCE, IT WOULD HURT THIER BUSINESS. PEOPLE, HUSBANDS, CHEATERS WHO MEET THERE MISTRESSES THERE AND OTHERS WOULD NOT FREQUENT THAT BAR ANYMORE. ITS LIKE A CASINO, NO PHOTOGRAPHS ALLOWED. AND AS FOR MICHAEL HE'D HAD ENOUGH! BEING CALLED WACKO-JACKO, FALSE ACCUSATIONS FROM EXTORTIONIST TRYING TO LIVE A LIFE OF LUXURY OFF OF MICHAEL. THE MEDIA BEING SO EXTREMELY CRUEL. MICHAEL HAD NO OTHER CHOICE BUT TO FAKE HIS DEATH. AND WHO COULD BLAME HIM? AND DONT FORGET MJ'S CONCERT WAS THREATENED BY TERRORIST. IT REALLY WOULD HAVE KILLED HIM IF ONE SINGLE FAN WOULD HAVE GOTTEN HURT BY TERRORIST. SO QUITE FRANKLY THE FBI COULD HAVE EASILY HELPED HIM FAKE HIS DEATH. THINK ABOUT IT MJ WAS ALLEGEDLY LOOKING WELL AND PRACTICING ON STAGE JUST HOURS BEFORE HIS ALLEGED DEATH. SO WHY NOT SHOW HIS BODY AND GIVE FANS SOME REAL CLOSURE? OTHER STARS FAMILIES HAVE NOT HAD A PROBLEM WITH IT. BECAUSE HE IS ALIVE, THATS WHY. THAT BELOVED MAN SPENT HIS WHOLE LIFE LOVING EVERYONE, BEING EXTREMELY GENEROUS TO EVERYONE, AND TRYING SOOOOO HARD TO CONVINCE US ALL TO LOVE ONE ANOTHER, SAVE OUR EARTH, AND CHERISH OUR CHILDREN. BUT THE PRESS WOULD NOT LET HIM. THE STRESS FROM THIS WAS MUCH MORE THAN OVERWHELMING. MICHAEL MAY OUR HEAVENLY FATHER BLESS YOU AND SUSTAIN YOU, I WOULD HAVE DONE JUST EXACTLY WHAT YOU DID. YOU ARE SO TRULY LOVED AND YOU ARE DEFINATELY NOT ALONE. WE MISS YOU TERRIBLY MY FRIEND.

Where in God's name do you think Michael Jackson would hide. Some back alley in the Ukraine? I'm really curious what you people think he did AFTER UCLA? How many branches of gov. /and or the service are involved? Is it like Witness protection? Plastic Surgeons? I keep seeing these articles about MJ sightings. Do you think he looks the same? Had surgery, is now a woman? Or, is he hiding with Bin Laden, or Like Bin Laden? Please enlighten me, oh, and he left his kids....not. You think all these people are going to keep quiet? How old are you? Boy, that chick at the hotel sees you coming with your debit cards. Whatever gets you thru it.

I'd personally like to hear Charles's opinion on Dr. Conrad Murry. I get the strange feeling that Harvey is trying to silence him. Would you allow him to speak please, sir?

Whether Conny was or wasn't at the drinking/strip club doesn't alter the FACT... The FACT is that Conny wasn't with Michael when he died. Conny gave his patient a lethal dose of an anaesthetic and then left the room. Conny was reckless and negligent and as the Coroner has stated, Michael was killed. Conny is 100% guilty. Many other people have Michael's blood on their hands and they too should be charged but nothing alters the fact than Conny gave the final lethal dose. As for the silly statement that Conny was "so busy, he didn't have time for a shower".... he had time to father at least 8 kids !!! Maybe he SHOULD'VE taken a shower then instead......a VERY cold shower.

According to Billboard, Jackson’s estate earned over one billion from music sales (429 million), film and TV rights to his concert do***entary This Is It (392 million), music publishing (130 million), a recording contract (31 million), and licensing and touring (35 million).



Most interesting is the amount of money the Jackson estate made by something that never even happened. Jackson’s 50-date This Is It shows at London’s O2 Arena brought in huge revenue despite being canceled, since 5 million was made through merchandising and 6.5 million was brought in through tickets not refunded by fans who wished to keep it as a souvenir.
