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."

35. 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?

I find this strange also Bunny. When the story first came out about Murray giving him this lethal injection, both Harvey and Mike said on Tmz live that Murray was a bad doctor, bad guy, etc. and they would not let him near them as their doctor etc. Now they are painting him in a good light? Seems odd don't it?

Also, has any noticed that this story is older than the ones below it but still gets the top spot?

Is someone promoting Murray at TMZ or what? I believe so. And this isn't the first time either. They do it until people call them out on it and than they move it.

Joe Jackson is totally out of control, that old fart needs to go back under whatever rock he was under while his son was alive.

Wow, there are around 10 stories about MJ a day on here. He is dead and we already know how he died. Wheres the intrigue and mystery? I dont get it. The possibility that his drug dealer a.k.a. his doctor might get charged for giving his customer drugs? This is getting pretty boring. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

You people are missing the point. read the do***ents! massive nostrils murdering murray found michael at 10:40 HAD HE CALLED 911 STAT MICHAEL JACKSON WOULD BE ALIVE TODAY. 911 was not called until 12:20. if massive nostrils was not a doctor (can't believe anyone that stupid is a doctor) criminal charges would have been filed already. murdering murray stopped cpr to hide drugs!!!!!!!! whether your a fan or not that is murder. Joe Jackson is uncovering evidence by his filings becaused murdering murray has to answer and the move suits filed against him the more evidence comes out that will help the presecution in thier case. obviously the suit was not filed for money but to get evidence by way of locking murray into his statements which at this point are several and all completely different. murray will have to do depositions and answer ALL KINDS OF QUESTIONS THAT HE WOULD NOT HAVE TO IN THE CRIMINAL TRIAL. THIS IS A BRILLANT MOVE ON JOE JACKSON'S PART! UNDER LAW MURRAY DOES NOT HAVE TO BE INTERVIEWED BY THE DA BUT HE WILL HAVE TO ANSWER IN THE CIVIL SUIT. YES MICHAEL JACKSON FANS DESTROY CA IF MURRAY WALKS! I'M COMING FROM ARIOZNA AND WILL SHOOT THE PIECE OF **** MYSELF IF GIVEN HALF A CHANCE! READ THE DOCS - THIS PIG HAS TO DIE AND I'M TIRED OF TMZ TAKING HIS SIDE. THAT UGLY MASSIVE NOSTRIL PIG JUST SMILED LIKE HE WAS A CELEBRITY WHILE GETTING HIS HAIR CUT. WHY HASN'T SOMEONE THROWN ROCKS AT HIM OR DRINKS ON HIM? IF I WOULD HAVE BEEN THERE AND SAW THAT LOSER SITTING GETTING HIS HAIR CUT I WOULD HAVE HURT HIM! MURRAY HAS TO DIE - NOT JUST FOR KILLING MICHAEL BUT BEING SUCH A PIECE OF **** HE IS NOT EVEN SORRY FOR WHAT HE HAS DONE!!!!!!! DIE PIG DIE

What Joe Jackson is doing is brillant because a defandant does not get interviewed by the prosecution. By filing a civil suit Murray must answer and be grilled in depositions which that evidence will then be turned over to the presecution. It does appear tMZ is being paid off by someone to post feel good stories to make Murray look good. After the trial I am never watching tMZ or going to their website and I hope all MJ fans do the same. Harvey you are a hypocrite and are being paid to suppport Murray.

All MJ fans should hurry and post their complaints so that TMZ will know they will be losing money if they don't stop the BS. It is illegal for anyone including a doctor to lie to the police and Murray hindered MJ getting the help he so despertly needed. MJ would be here today if Murray would have CALLED 911 AS SOON AS THE DEADBEAT CAME BACK INTO THE ROOM. LET HARVEY & TMZ KNOW WE THE FANS ARE NOT GOING TO TOLERATE HIS FEEL GOOD STORIES ABOUT MURRAY

Maybe Joe just got confused about what HE was doing that night and thought it was Murray! Ha-ha.
I agree that TMZ has changed their tune about Murray's guilt since this began. I wonder if they know something that they're not sharing or if they're just trying to stir up controversy?

I don't think Joe is B/S for a minute, he and Oxman can be ridiculed all TMZ wants and those that follow, TMZ may fool many b/c they feel as though they are the know-it-all tabloid sight.

Joe Jackson wants to be deemed as the devil and the horrible father/husband, well at least he is doing something about his sons death.

GO JOE GO if it takes your last days of your life to find out the truth!

Joe is right! Murray belongs in prison and some other people behind him too.

Leave Murray Alone! He's NOT guilty, because Michael Jackson is ALIVE.

That explains it    

I'm no advocate of Murrays, but this sounds like bull to me.

Joe Jackson is looking for money and nothing else. Michael cut Joe out of his will and Joe is trying anything and everything he can think of to get money. He doesn't care where the money comes from. Right after Michael dies Joe was at a awards show and on the red carpet he was promoting something that had nothing to do with Michael.
