Conrad Murray Talks
Michael Jackson

Conrad Murray is revealing details about his relationship with Michael Jackson in a new documentary airing tonight on MSNBC.

A controversial new documentary about the relationship between Dr. Conrad Murray and Michael Jackson is set to air on MSNBC Friday night. Michael Jackson and The Doctor explores Murray's trial and goes inside the defense team's struggle — and ultimate failure — to acquit the doctor of killing Jackson with a fatal dose of propofol.

The juicy stuff comes from Murray himself. The convicted doctor shared information about his relationship with the King of Pop, including that Jackson looked like his "Thriller" character the morning of his death.

"I think in many ways, there were some mirror images in our lives," said Murray, adding that he was Jackson's only friend. "I've seen him cry so many times. He lived a life greater than a hundred years of pain of any human."

However, the doctor said he felt used by Jackson.

"I only wish that maybe in our dealings with each other, he was more forthcoming and honest to tell me things about himself," Murray said. "Certainly, he was deceptive by not sharing with me his whole medical history, doctors he was seeing, treatment that he might have been receiving."

Murray also revealed that he was trying to wean Jackson off of propofol in the days before his death on June 25, 2009. However, Jackson kept begging for more "milk" — his nickname for the powerful medication.

"He asked me, 'Please, please, Dr. Conrad... I need some milk so that I can sleep. If I don't get any sleep today, I cannot perform, I cannot do anything,'" Murray said. "He was pleading and begging me to please, please let him have some 'milk,' because that was the only thing that would work."

The revealing documentary gives us more of an idea of Murray as a person — considering that we didn't get to hear his testimony during the trial. However, those close to Jackson are blasting MSNBC for giving the disgraced doctor a platform, calling it "one-sided" and "reprehensible." They are also demanding that the network "exercise proper judgment and refrain from airing" the documentary.

Comments on "Conrad Murray: Michael Jackson was "deceptive""

Typical "criminal" behavior; place the blame on the victim. Apparently, Michael was addicted to the propofol, and as a doctor, and a friend, Dr. Murray SHOULD HAVE exercised the standard. "Just Say NO". But he's greed, and desire to continue receiving benefits of over $150,000 per month from MJ is what moved him. Now, he's calling Michael, deceptive. I hope he rots. It's obvious that he's non-repentant. And people feel sorry for Murray? Hmm
