Conrad Murray

MJ Hired Me

And Hated AEG

8/23/2013 5:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE



Michael Jackson
-- NOT AEG -- hired Dr. Conrad Murray and MJ actually kept AEG at complete arms length on issues of medical treatment, because he felt a bunch of snakes ran the concert promotion company ... and these are the words of Conrad Murray captured on tape.

TMZ has obtained a voice mail Murray recently left on a friend's answering machine.  If it were testimony in the wrongful death trial, it could be explosive.  Among other things, Murray says:

-- Michael personally offered him the job of being his doctor on the "This Is It" tour

-- AEG actually wanted to hire a less expensive doctor, but Michael got his way with Murray

-- AEG never ordered Murray to give MJ any specific medical treatment.  All requests came from Michael

-- AEG was not even aware of the medical treatment Michael was receiving.  This point is critical

-- Michael despised AEG and referred to people who worked for the company as "snakes"

-- Michael had particular disdain for "This Is It" producer/director Kenny Ortega.  MJ said he hated Ortega, who had no idea how much pain he was inflicting on Michael with the breakneck pace.

And Michael's venom extended to his family.  Murray claims during the Jackson 5 Pay for View project, Joe (whom he called Papa Bear) demanded $1 million.  Katherine (whom he called Mama Bear) also wanted $1 mil.  And each of the brothers wanted $500k. 

You gotta hear the audio.

Forget about this loser. Prince Rogers Nelson is a musical genius. I love his song "Breakfast Can Wait".

Keep talking "doctor". We know you know a lot of stuff, but finally step up and take responsibility! You put a man to sleep like an old dog, as a cardiologist you had no right or means to perform anasthesia. You had your chance to speak in court, why didn't you?

Why would anyone believe anything this guy has to say? If it weren't for him Michael is still alive and this trial never takes place.

Who knows if this is true......Dr Murray is a proven liar.....HOWEVER I bet the part about MJ's family wanting $$$ is true...sounds about right. During the 2005 trial his brothers/dad all pressured/bullied him to try to go on Jackson 5 tour.....when the guy's life was on the line...they have no shame.

He just wants to revenge from the family putting him in Jail. He is too much an unethical person to be considered anyway he should serve a longer sentence. He should get 35 years not Bradley Manning.

Murderer!!! Michael Jackson NEVER hated Kenny Ortega and much less Katherine. The fact that Michael Jackson wanted this disgusting murderer as his doctor already came out at his trial, unfortunately Michael Jackson trusted him, couldn't know he is a murederer sociopath hungry for money!!!! These are ALL LIES, which he already started to spread during his disgusting do***entary, coming from a disgusting murderer sociopath mentally disturbed who is trying to sell his disgusting lies given NO publisher is interested in. He's trying to convince people he knows "explosive secrets" about Michael Jackson when in reality he knows nothing more than we all know, adding his personal disgusting lies as a result of his sick fantasies. He is already serving such a ridiculous sentence and unrightfully receiving so many privileges, and if he can sell his disgusting voice mails it's only thanks to greedy unnatural mother Katherine who dropped restitution. He should just rot in jail before rotting in hell where this disgusting murderer belongs!!!!

of course MJ wanted Murray as his doctor. Murray was his drug dealer and would do anything MJ asked without question. had MJ had a responsible doctor he couldn't have abused drugs at his leisure, and would most likely still be alive.

Isn't it obvious to everyone that Dr.Murray should have never been sent to jail in the first place?

After all Michael Jackson is the one who killed Michael Jackson,Murray was just the fall guy.
