MJ’s Niece Slams Conrad Murray’s Paid ’60 Min. Australia’ Interview

  • Michael Jackson’s family has expressed its anger that Conrad Murray, the doctor convicted of the pop superstar’s death, was allegedly paid for a tell-all TV Q&A.

    In his first full-length interview, Murray claimed he loved Jackson, who died from a drug overdose in 2009.

    Australia’s “60 Minutes” has reportedly paid Murray a six-figure sum in a move slammed by crime victims’ support groups. But a source said the figure was “nowhere near six figures.”

    “It’s not even in the vicinity,” the source said. “More like the fives.”

    Murray, who injected the singer with Propofol, was released from jail last month after serving almost two years of a four-year sentence. He was convicted of involuntary manslaughter over Jackson’s death.

    The interview, which aired in Australia on Sunday night, has made Jackson’s family “sick to the pits of their stomach.” Tanay Jackson, Michael’s niece, said the family could never forgive Murray.

    “No matter what he says and no matter what anyone else says the point still remains the same: he was the physical culprit of my uncle’s death,” Tanay told Britain’s Daily Mirror newspaper. “He had that needle in his hand and he injected Michael. Whether he meant to overdose him or not, he still injected him. He’s the doctor, he should’ve known better. It didn’t matter what Michael told him, he shouldn’t have done it.”

    Tanay Jackson said she feared the interview could harm Jackson’s daughter, Paris.

    “She is trying to find a way to escape and it doesn’t seem like anyone knows what to do. This is a 15-year-old going through a 40-year-old’s problems,” she said.

    1. “No matter what he says and no matter what anyone else says the point still remains the same: he was the physical culprit of my uncle’s death,” Tanay told Britain’s Daily Mirror newspaper. “He had that needle in his hand and he injected Michael. Whether he meant to overdose him or not, he still injected him. He’s the doctor, he should’ve known better. It didn’t matter what Michael told him, he shouldn’t have done it.”———————– And this is a correct statement. Everyone who works in these kinds of fields will say the same thing. There is no excuse. And if Murray thought MJ was addicted to anything, that makes what he did even worst. MJ had a real medical problem and Murray failed him. End of story.

      • Well, she need to tear him down. He open the door for that to happen. MJ was his patient and he has no right. Murray is sick man and everyone in the medical community who spoke on him is upset over this. This just goes to show how unresponsible this doctor was to treat anyone. WHo care if he held MJ private part. Guess what, HE is a doctor and doctors do that to patient when they are unconscious or getting an exam. Ever had prostate exam or a pap smear? However that does NOT mean you are “close” to you doctor. He is just rambling in this interview and making no sense.
