People vs. Dr. Conrad Murray

Michael Jackson's Chef:

Murray Begged Me For Help

9/29/2011 4:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kai Chase -- Michael Jackson's Chef Testifies
Updated 9/29/11 at 2:35PM

0929_girlk_on_standMichael Jackson's personal chef Kai Chase just testified -- claiming a frantic Dr. Conrad Murray begged her for help the day MJ died, ten minutes before anyone called 911.

According to Chase, she was in the kitchen preparing lunch for Michael and his kids -- and between 12:05 and 12:10PM, Murray ran downstairs, yelling for her to "get Prince, get help, get security."

Chase claimed she sent Prince to Dr. Murray and returned to work.

Chase admitted she didn't contact security -- a point highlighted by defense attorney J. Michael Flanagan.

Yesterday, MJ's personal assistant Michael Amir Williams testified ... Murray called him at 12:13 PM, and Williams immediately phoned security. MJ's security guard Alberto Alvarez eventually called 911 at 12:21 -- between 11 and 16 minutes after Murray allegedly asked Chase for help.

While Chase was leaving court today, we asked if she thought her testimony was helpful -- she responded, "Absolutely."

What I said is only based on what I understood of the chief's testimony in court. I've been a juror and I know what getting informed is.

luckiest freak that died. he used his own fans to justify his abusive, dumb actions.
apologists think it's ok that jackson was a childish stupid manipulative criminal who hired a dangerous criminal to take the blame for mj's destruction. he jumped from not feeling like helping himself to worrying about managing his health well then back to not feeling like helping himself.
he wanted someone to go down if he destroyed himself.

hi barbara, sorry for my rude post. I guess i was a bit frustrated that a lot of people on here seem to blame the chef more than the doctor and i can now see you were just commenting on something you found questionable and not trying to deflect blame. You seem really polite and i apologise.

How many times did she mention "love" in her testimony until the judge told her to stop? She sure didn't have any to go around when it came down to it. The DR. comes to her in a panicked state, requests that she get help, security, Prince... and what does she do, she sends Prince to help and GOES BACK TO WORK????? WTF!!

what did she not understand when he told her to get help and get security...she knew something was wrong.. she was too busy making Juice???? . That's some special meal I am sure she got paid well for. seems like know one cared about him, The dr. , security, or the chef...You can have all the money in the world and people don't really care, they just wanted his money and look special because they worked for him.

Barbara!
Obviously Jazz didn'*****ch the Trial and you and me did, and a few others that are posting. Jazz doesn't understand that the Doctor asked the cook to "get help, go get security". But she failed to do both.


Jazz
Instead of talking out your bottom, watch the trial and then add your 2 cents. Then you would be informed.

The defense cross examined the COOK, and did a pretty good job of doing it, but failed to ask KEY questions.

"Did the doctor tell you to call 911 immediately. Yes or NO?
You say the doctor told you the Call for Help. Did you say NO to his request? Because did you Call for HELP? She said she didn't .
The Doctor told you to go get security, did you agree to do that, or did you say "NO, I will not get security".

To an average person , if they are told to CALL for HELP and get security immediately and the person just continued to cook and not CALL for HELP or get security that could have saved MJ. 10 minutes went by without the cook calling security or calling 911.

I am sure the Doctor told her to "call 911 and get security immediately" and she did nothing, she just cooked.

I first began to dislike Kai Chase when i became aware a while ago that she was basically everywhere giving interveiws, some paid for and some not. She stated in court that these interviews were about the cooking, yeah whatever! After seeing her yesterday i disliked her more. She certainly loves herself for sure. I don't care what anyone says, she stated that Murray was frantic, now in my book that means something serious has happened, he asked her in her words in court to "Get help, get security, get Prince. She decided to get Prince!!! Who in their right minds would in that split second make the choice to get a 12 year old boy rather than security, or better still she made several references to the constant need of her cell phone to tell the time, why not just ring 911. Ok some are saying she may not have understood the nature of the problem, but in instances like this you leave nothing to chance. Best part was that after sending Prince she continued working, wouldn't anyone of us be just a bit curious to know what was going on!!!!
Alberto Alvarez although he seems a nice guy and loyal to Michael, unlike Kai he didn't give any interviews, also made a similar bad error of judgement. Picture this, you walk into a room and you see Michael on the bed eyes and mouth open and obviously something is wrong, what any rational person would do is call 911, ask questions later. Instead he just did as he was told by Murray, hiding the evidence. He stated he thought the stuff was being pcked up to take to hospital, as Michaels security his job should have been first and foremost to help Michael, worry about the other stuff later. I think it is so tragic that Michael paid these people a lot of money to look after him and when he really needed them they all in their own way let him down big style. Just to add am very suspicious too about the extra security that Alvarez mentioned were hired a few days before Michaels death, why?

Conrad Murray is screwed, doesn't stand a chance with this trial. He should have NEVER given him the "sleep aid" but I'm not convinced these witnesses are being truthful. I guess $$$$$ really does talk. In my opinion, farce and I don't recalls.. Where the Hell was his family, and all the people who claim they loved him so to let him end up dead, and in my opinion reliant on drugs?

The defense had a good question, though it still doesn't help their client: Why didn't this chick go and get security after she got Prince? Were her fresh juices and Mahi Mahi tuna steaks more important? Even when the doctor was "frantic" and she believed there was something very wrong with Jackon? Guess she has Farina for brains.

The Cook and Security Staff were responsible for calling 911. The Doctor told them to call 911.
What happened is they were in "shock".
The Cook was told point blank, "call 911 and get security right now!". And she didn't do anything but cook.

Now someone working in security are TRAINED to respond in emergencies. That is their JOB. They are to serve and protect their client.

At this point , we don't know what exactly the doctor did, because his side has not yet been presented in court. But we will in time hear what the doctor did.

But the cook and security personal have been on stand, and they failed to do the most obvious thing, "call 911".

The doctor ordered them to, and they "failed to do that".

All you people Ranting in all Capitals , you are spewing out garbage, what you are saying hasn't been brought out in court yet and cross-examined. You are just reading tabloid media and talking non-sense.

She claimed she sent Prince (CHILD) and went back to work??? She was asked to call security from a man who came running down the stairs yelling, and she just went back to work.. Was this the norm in that house? Sounds to me it must have, she didn't follow through and call for security, anymore than he 911..
