We may soon learn A LOT more about Michael Jackson‘s troubled childhood.
On Sunday, it was revealed that the Thriller singer’s former doctor Conrad Murray is penning a tell all about the late icon, titled This Is It. Oh, how “original.”
According to Murray, Michael confided in him that when he was 13-years-old he took hormone injections in order to delay puberty and maintain his high range. Whoa.
In case you forgot, Conrad is the same physician who was convicted of involuntary manslaughter over the King of Pop’s passing. As he served two years of his four year sentence, we have a feeling Murray has no qualms with breaking the sacred doctor/patient confidentiality agreement.
Anywho, we digress. Reportedly, MJ told Conrad he began taking injections as a youth right before the start of his solo career in 1972. The scandalized doctor dished to The Mirror:
“He began talking vaguely, seeming to have more difficulty describing precisely what happened to him. Maybe he was almost at the limit to his cathartic confession that night. But what Michael said left me the impression that he had been given injections, probably hormones, to delay puberty.”
Oh man. Conrad went on to theorize that these injections may’ve been the cause of the A-lister’s “unusual behavior” and “morphological changes.” We mean, it would certainly explain some things.
While Conrad promised Michael he would never reveal this information after their conversation, the doc has since detailed his convos with his famous client in his upcoming tell all. Tsk, tsk.
To make matters worse, Murray also wrote in extensive detail about the Billie Jean artist’s alleged painful callouses and his chronic fungal infection. He added:
“It turned out he always wore socks because he was so ashamed of the way his feet looked… The fact Michael’s feet, something critical to him, were in such poor condition was a sign not only had he neglected himself but those around him were not keeping a close eye on his well-being.”
Maybe that was something Murray could’ve taken care of?? We guess hindsight IS 20/20.
Nonetheless, we are a tad skeptical about these truth bombs as Murray is a convicted criminal and lost his license to practice medicine in Texas, and had his license suspended in California and Nevada.
What do YOU think? Are you itching to read Murray’s book?
