Dr. Conrad MURRAY: MJ NEVER MENTIONED OTHER DOCS
Dr. Conrad Murray Shifts Blame – MJ Never Mentioned Other Docs
Dr. Conrad Murray told police … he had no clue what medications Michael Jackson had been prescribed by other doctors — and although he knew it was going on … Murray says MJ never told him he was seeing other doctors.
In the police interview from June 27th 2009 — two days after MJ died — Murray cites Dr. Arnold Klein as one doctor who regularly prescribed MJ drugs behind Murray’s back.
According to Murray, MJ’s production team often complained about the singer’s visits to Klein — insisting Michael’s worst days on set were after he had been to Dr. Klein’s office … about three times a week.
During the taped interview — played in court today — Murray told police … “When [Michael] came back [from Klein’s office], he was basically wasted and required 24 hours for recovery.”
Murray claims the only evidence of doctor-shopping he saw was a smattering of prescription pill bottles by the singer’s bedside, bearing other doctors’ names.
But Murray insists … Michael never spoke about it.
