Kenny Ortega Speaks Up Against Dr. Conrad Murray

kenny ortega speaks up against dr conrad murray

As we mentioned yesterday, a preliminary hearing is scheduled for today, where Dr. Conrad Murray will face his involuntary manslaughter charge for Michael Jackson's death.

As the trial begins, it looks like we've already got two of MJ's crew who are NOT on Dr. Murray's side: Michael's bodyguard Alberto Alvarez and This Is It director Kenny Ortega.

Here's what Ortega had to say about Murray's behavior when MJ got sick during a rehearsal day for the London comeback concerts:

"[Murray] was upset that I had sent Michael home the night before and didn't allow him to rehearse."

And more from Ortega:

“Dr. Murray told me that this was not my responsibility and asked me to not act like a doctor or psychologist … and leave Michael’s health to him."

“It was scary. I didn’t know what was wrong, but I knew there was something going on."

And here's what Ortega had to say about MJ's vastly improved condition during two rehearsals before his death:

“It was like the Michael we all knew and loved."

Sounds strange, and pretty sketchy.

Guess we'll see what happens as Dr. Murray's preliminary hearing gets underway today.

    I would not believe anything out of anyone's mouth that had anything to do with Michael Jackson. MJ created such a fake world around him, no truth, all about MONEY, SHOWS, PAYDAYS. MJ's FAMILY, lie even more, they RELIED, no, IDOLIZED MJ'S MONEY SO MUCH, they would make up whatever story so he would not stop handing it over. EVEN IF MJ were reserrected like Jesus Christ, I would not believe him, because the man was purely delusional, the world he built around him, how he enabled almost all of his whole family, etc. BUT, HIS DEBTS GREW TO TOO MUCH OVER A YEAR AGO, AND IT WAS ABOUT TO ALL CRASH IN. Like it does with EVERYONE NORMAL PERSON. Immortal Michael was not Immortal after all, just like River Phoenix who 'played' with drugs and thought he was above us mere mortals. BUT NO ONE IS. and in the end, no matter what the illusions are, the lies are, the card house comes tumbling down. Everyone has to STOP THE LIES, IT IS OVER..

    Over in all these people, their lies are not lining up with each other. and the people who are not MJ fanatics realize this and the rest of you will later on. Maybe, someday, it will all be sorted out, and people will see a lot of people should have seen MJ was near death, but GREED WAS IN THEIR WAY. (and this includes, especially includes his family). But in the end, MJ was an addict, a multiple addict. Besides drugs, he was addicted to 'stuff', enabling, and collecting. They all contributed to his death as they caused GREAT DEBT. But, his addiction to drugs and his ability, his name to get whatever he wanted, THAT IS WHAT KILLED HIM….

    Re: justtfax – I agree. So many people, including his doctor, contributed to his death, but they were all afraid of being booted off the gravy train. MJ was an addict - and therefore, he is the primary culprit in his own death.

    No surprise that Murray would say something like this! He took desperate measures in order to prevent his house from going into foreclosure. I really hope Kenny is called to testify!
