Conrad Murray just keeps digging a hole! The controversial doctor, who was released three weeks ago after being convicted of involuntary manslaughter in 2011 for the death of Michael Jackson, just did an interview with Australia's 60 Minutes -- and we gotta say things got uncomfortable.
When interviewer Liz Hayes asked the disgraced doc if he thought MJ was a pedophile, Murray paused for a good long while then said, "I am not prepared to answer that question not now. And I will tell you now that the reason why is because my interview is quite candid and honest and I will not make up or fabricate anything."
Then why agree to an interview if you aren't going to answer questions?!
Despite being convicted, Murray maintains his innocence, telling the program that King of Pop begged for his help that night.
"He said to me, 'If I don't go to rehearsal I'm going to lose everything' ... When I saw how desperate he was and I knew how much of a destitute he was, what he was facing if he did not do this, it all again, fell on my heart."
Aww -- what a good friend! With friends like that, who needs enemies?!
Murray said, "Michael Jackson accidentally killed Michael Jackson."
Murray seems to be talking a whole lot about his former patient. Over the weekend, he gave another interview with England's Daily Mail. When asked about their relationship, the doc said, "You want to know how close we were? I held his penis every night to fit a catheter because he was incontinent at night." Murray continued to reveal embarrassing details about the Thriller singer, saying, "He wore dark trousers all the time because after he went to the toilet he would drip for hours."
Murray couldn't stop saying odd things said about his relationship with the man he was convicted of helping to kill: "I love Michael. I love Michael Jackson, I love him, I was his closest friend. … You see, I was Michael's doctor, but I spent more time with him as a friend than taking care of him medically."
He continued, "I love Michael, I will mourn his loss forever. I am so sad that he's not here."
Yeah so are we!
