When you’re found responsible for the death of one of the most popular people on Earth, chances are the rest of your life will result in you being the polar opposite. And while many of you may not know how the world of publishing works, let me tell you: Being hated to that degree isn’t really going to do you any favors. But bless Dr. Conrad Murray’s heart, though.
Michael Jackson’s ex-physician wants to write a book under some odd presumption that people want to pay more than $20 to read about the guy who helped the world lose the King of Pop.
The reality check has apparently come a few times other from multiple publishers. Alls well that ends well.
“Dr. Murray spends most of his days writing what he is telling friends will be a tell-all book about what really happened in the final days of Michael Jackson’s life,” a source close to the situation tells Radar. “Murray believes that the public will want to hear about the time he spent with Michael.Conrad says that Michael confided his inner-most secrets about his true feelings about his family, the child molestation trial and his three children. Murray contends that Michael’s kids viewed him as a family member and loved him.
“This isn’t all about money for Murray though because he is absolutely flat broke and desperately needs the cash. He feels that the book could help rehab his image and help him to get his medical license back.”
Jackson’s former physician was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter in connection with the death of the King of Pop and was sentenced to four years in jail. However, because of jail overcrowding in California, Murray, who has served less than a year of the sentence to date, is expected to only serve two years behind bars.
“The conviction is being appealed and Murray is confident that it will be successful, even though legal experts say that it’s very unlikely that he will get a new trial. Conrad is extremely arrogant and doesn’t accept any responsibility for the death of Michael Jackson. He truly believes he has done nothing wrong,” the insider says.
Meanwhile, reps for Murray have reached out to publishers to test the waters to see if there is any interest in releasing the book, and so far, the response has been, “no thanks.”
“Several publishers have been contacted and have expressed little to no interest in publishing any book written by or about Dr. Murray,” the source says. “One publisher said that even if Murray were to take full responsibility for the death of Michael Jackson there was no interest. Dr. Murray just isn’t an empathetic person and the public doesn’t want to hear from him, period,” the source says.
