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."

On TMZ live the other day, Harvey and his offsider were really pushing the 'Murray looks like a nice, innocent guy' routine.
Would you believe such b.s.?
Now they're putting up all these pro-Murray stories. What's going on Harvey? Is it true that Anschutz owner of AEG also owns TMZ?
The media spent years stirring up hate against Michael, now they've switched to his father. I know Joe isn't everyone's cup of tea but read this excellent blog which gives an interesting background to Joe, Katherine and the family, and ask yourselves why the media's sudden interest in Joe. Maybe he's getting too close to the truth?

BTW, Geraldine Hughes has been saying for a couple of months that Murray was at a strip club with a call girl that night. I hard her repeat it when she was being interviewed at the courthouse last week.

C'mon...Dr Murray is a pawn, he provided the drugs that MJ wanted...MJ was a junkie, and Dr Murray is a broke Dr. It does not take a brilliant mind to figure this out. And Joe, and jermaine (whatever his name is) are both losers, they should both get a job. Jermaine, how much did you sell your interview at the grave for? Have you no shame? seriously....GET A JOB, WE ALL HAVE TO WORK.....

I would NOT put it past Joe Jackson to have made some sort of shady agreement about this - The club gives Joe $100,000 in return for naming them in this case - because face it, they just got a million dollars worth of advertisement. The owner probably told a couple of the employees he sleeps with (you KNOW it happens) to "remember" Murray being there.

Joe can't be helping the DA's case against Murray. The DA needs to talk with the Jackson family before he blows the whole thing and the case against Murray gets dismissed. Murray's lawyers want him to sound like a christian chartiable busy wonderful doctor. I have seen pics on TMZ with Murray in party clothes with a girl in each arm. He's no saint. How many babies, and baby mama's does he have? Don't be fooled by the innocent act. HE IS LIEING. Michael couldn't have given himself the profonol all the autopsy experts agree to that fact. It said injection by another (MURRAY). HE KILLED MICHAEL and don't let anyone tell you different.

Bunny, I read the blogspot link/article you posted in your post. I am still on the fence about this whole affair. But I do have several questions. I did a 'Google' search on 'who owns TMZ'? What comes up is AOL/Time Warner, not Anschutz owner of AEG. Also, did Geraldine Hughes see Conrad Murray at that strip club on that very night of Michael's death with her own eyes? Or is that from another 'source'? Sources don't mean anything, but real names of real people who are reputable do.



The medias sudden interest in Joe Jackson is because he has put himself in a position for the Media to ask ‘why is he doing this? And the answer in my opinion is to somehow find a way to get on the receiving end of some $$$, weather it be from the estate of Michael or through Katherine or some other venture he is trying to kick up. Where does he think he is going to get all this money to create a Museum dedicated to Michael in Gary, Indiana. I know Gary, it’s in my home state and it’s the armpit of Chicago…dirty and full of crime. Does he or anyone else think that venture would be a success? I somehow doubt it even though it would be a shot in the arm for the area. I also know that Michael came to Gary, his hometown sometime in 2003 and talked to the then Mayor about such a venture however it never came to pass because of the 2003 accusations and the subsequent trial.
I hope you check back on your post and see my questions and hopefully you might have some answers as well. Thanks for the information it is thought provoking.

Dr. Murray told the authorities he was not living in Michael Jackson home over the six weeks that he was staying with his girlfriend which is the stripper that had Dr. Murray’s recent baby and where the Pharmaceutical Company deliver the drugs that Dr. Murray administered to Michael Jackson.




Dr. Murray had time to shower.




Dr. Murray drank alcohol and needed to go to the restroom so badly he left sedated Jackson unattended.

If his family witnessed him fainting onstage
on his precious Christmas worship day,
(after Propofol injections)
he would've been suicidal.
