Michael Jackson was known as the “King of Pop” and one of the greatest modern entertainers of all time with a lengthy list of musical accomplishments, including albums, awards, and fans’ legions. He was 50 years old when he passed in 2009 from cardiac arrest. Conrad Murray, Jackson’s doctor from 2006 to 2009, administered the drug, propofol sedative, that was the proven cause of Michael’s early death. He was charged with involuntary manslaughter in the singer’s death after the tragic incident. Conrad Murray is now coming forward with allegations against Michael Jackson’s father. According to Murray, Michael Jackson’s father chemically castrated Jackson to keep his voice pitch high.
Murray, Jackson’s doctor, was sentenced to four years in prison for his role in the singer’s untimely death but ultimately served just two for good behavior. After his release from prison, he published a book called This Is It!: The Secret Lives of Dr. Conrad Murray and Michael Jackson. Reviews of the text refer to it as ridden with typos, errors, and self-serving and paint the doctor as blameless in the singer’s death. In his book, Murray claims that Jackson confided in him that he faced many atrocities at his dad’s hands. Murray accuses Joe Jackson of giving Michael hormone injections at the age of twelve to stop his voice from changing. During an interview with The Blast, Murray said Joe Jackson is one of the “worst fathers to his children in history.” Conrad Murray states that the hormone injections were presented to Jackson to cure his acne problem but instead were used to control the pitch of his voice. The disgraced doctor is bringing questions about the singer and his father back into the spotlight.
Michael Jackson had spoken about the abuse he and his siblings received from their father as children in interviews before the death of Joe Jackson from pancreatic cancer at the age of 89. In detail, Jackson shared the mistreatment during an interview with Oprah Winfrey and a 2003 documentary “Living with Michael Jackson.” Michael said, “It was more than just a belt, cords, whatever was around.” Michael would run from his father, but sometimes his father caught him. Michael said, “But when he would catch me? It was bad. It was really bad.” Michael did have some nice words to say about his father. Jackson mentioned his determination, will power, and picking a path that his father thought was best for his family. Michael praised his father for the relationship he has with his grandchildren. It sounds like Michael had a tumultuous relationship with his father. Conrad Murray chemically castrating Michael to maintain his high-pitched voice is beyond words. However, he hopes Joe Jackson finds redemption from hell.
