Conrad Murray has broken his silence about NOT testifying in the Michael Jackson wrongful death trial … and he did it by SINGING on live TV.
Murray — who is serving a 4-year sentence for killing MJ — called into “Anderson Cooper 360” moments ago from jail. At first he sang the same old tune … insisting he was innocent and in the process of appealing the case.
But then he did something really, really weird — belting out his version of “The Little Boy That Santa Claus Forgot” (better sung by Nat King Cole)!
Murray seemed to be explaining how much he and MJ had in common … and why he’s chosen to plead the 5th in Katherine Jackson’s $40 billion suit against AEG — but you gotta watch it, because his singing is super awkward … and awful.
TMZ is also reporting Dr. Conrad Murray believes his testimony in Michael Jackson’s wrongful death lawsuit would lead to catastrophic consequences for one side — and he’s not saying which — so it’s best to leave him the hell alone.
Murray made the veiled threat last night in a bizarre, rambling voice mail he left on a friend’s machine — obtained by TMZ.
The doc who’s serving time for manslaughter says, “If I am compelled to speak [in court] I can cause one party or the other to experience the impact of an immediate seismic shock” resulting in “a total and complete debacle” for both sides.
Murray — who was subpoenaed to testify in Katherine Jackson’s $40 billion lawsuit against AEG — has pled the 5th because he doesn’t want to incriminate himself in any upcoming legal proceedings stemming from his appeal to overturn his manslaughter conviction.
Which begs the question … what’s he NOT saying?
