Conrad Murray Legal Team

We Didn't Get a Red Cent

From Doc Murray Doc

11/10/2011 6:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Dr. Conrad Murray
's legal team didn't get any money -- directly or indirectly -- from the Murray documentary that's about to air on MSNBC ... this according to sources directly connected to the Dr.'s defense team.

There are reports out today that MSNBC funded Murray's legal defense, but our sources say it is "absolute B.S."  

We're told Murray's lead attorney, Ed Chernoff, is about to leave the case -- possibly before an appeal is filed -- because he needs to get back to his practice in Houston and make some money, because the Murray case almost put him under.

We're told Murray got $1 for his participation in the documentary.  But the people who are saying he got a buck will not say if he'll share in profits from selling the show.

its not like the lawyers don't have a lien on any future earnings... very hard for him to collect huge amounts of money and them not take it.. come on TMZ report the whole story

Why do they keep calling him Dr. Conrad Murray? He is not a doctor, he is a murderer. Conrad Murray is his name. Doctor is a privilege that people earn when they save other people's lives not when they take them!!!

Chernoff needs to get back to work cause he has child support to pay to his baby momma no. 1 and keep his current trophey wife and baby momma no. 2 happy, cause if she don't see any money coming in, she might leave him. Current wife is Channing Dry. Google her. She used to be a fitness model. Did you guys know that he was once married to playboy model Mickey Chernoff?

Before the Jacksons were interested in the $$, he was bragging about how many millions he was getting for it and it was being "shopped around". You dont shop around for $1.00. Sorry...another Murray lie....probably went to the current baby mama or she would leave him...

You can't slur and shuffle your way through through the last few years of your life -


Then blame the doctor.


The doctor you sought out to supply, deliver and administer highly toxic drugs.


I think it's called recognizing you - or somebody else - has a problem.


The Jackson Family's just like my own - irresponsible.


Then tragedy predictably happens and they're all passing out at the funeral(s).


As if it's all really surprising.


Sick people need to get help - period.
