Washington: New York Times best selling author, Ian Halperin, has revealed that Dr Conrad Murray, who is fighting Michael Jackson’s manslaughter case, tapped the pop king 160 times.
Halperin revealed to RadarOnline.com the real reason why Murray audiotaped his former patient in one of the stunning recordings played by Deputy District Attorney David Walgren on the first day of testimony of Murray’s involuntary manslaughter trial.
The recording heard Jackson sounding heavily under the influence at the time of the recording on May 10, 2009 at around 9 a.m.
“I want them to.. I’ve never seen nothing like this in my life. He’s the greatest entertainer of all time. I’m taking that money, a million children, children’s hospital. Biggest in the world. Michael Jackson’s Children’s Hospital,” Jackson can be heard slurring.
Halperin, author of ‘Unmasked: The Final Years of Michael Jackson’, told RadarOnline.com that Murray kept those recordings so that he could release them had Jackson ever turfed him.
“He (Dr. Conrad Murray) has over 160 recordings of Michael Jackson, and this is just the tip of the iceberg, so get ready....He wasn’t planning on using this in court,” he said.
“What he was planning in case Jackson turfed him, was that he would have all these recordings, get some sort of book deal, or release an album of it, and maybe top Thriller in sales. He is only motivated by one word and that is cash....there are no other motives...the only reason was he wanted to cover his tracks,” he added.
