Michael Jackson’s killer doctor claimed the star had to wear condoms to stop him wetting the bed every night – and he had to put them on for him.
Disgraced Conrad Murray served half of a four-year sentence after giving the music icon a lethal dose of anaesthetic Propofol in 2009. Conrad Murray made some extraordinary claims about the late singer in a 2013 interview.
But fresh out of jail, Murray unleashed a number of bizarre allegations about the late singer and their relationship.
“You want to know how close Michael and I were? I held his penis every night,” he told the Mail On Sunday.
“I had to put a condom catheter on him because Michael dripped urine. He had a loss of sensation and was incontinent.”
He added: “Michael didn’t know how to put a condom on, so I had to do it for him.”
Murray was not afraid to dress his claims with further detail, telling the paper in 2013: “He wore dark trousers all the time because after he went to the toilet he would drip for hours.”
During Murray’s trial it was said that Jackson “took hours to urinate” and had been prescribed Flomax, which shrinks the prostate, to help him pee more easily.
The former cardiologist claimed Jackson was a “drug addict” who called Propofol his “milk” and would beg Murray to inject him so he could sleep.
Jackson had in fact hired Murray only weeks before his death.
Murray said he worried that Jackson had become dependent on the drug as a sleep aid, and was trying to wean him off it.
He also made the sensational claim that Michael had given himself the dose that killed him after waiting for Murray to leave the room. But prosecutors at his trial refused to believe the doctor’s claim that he’d left the room only for a couple of minutes, and he was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter in November 2011.
Jackson’s life is currently under intense scrutiny after a documentary exploring sexual abuse allegations premiered at the Sundance Film Festival.
Leaving Neverland airs on Channel 4 on March 6 and 7 in two parts, starting at 9pm on both nights.
