I hope you’ve enjoyed your day so far, because it’s about to get gross and dark. Happy Thursday!
Conrad Murray, the shady doctor who served two years for manslaughtering Michael Jackson, is back with a message. And it is not a pleasant one. As you may be aware, the patriarch of the Jackson family, Joe Jackson, recently died. Well, Conrad heard about the death and he had some words to say about it.
The Blast has a video of Conrad where he makes several references to some dark-sided ickiness which Joe was allegedly involved in. Of course we’ve heard about Joe being an abusive asshole monster over the course of his fatherhood, but Dr. Murray brings up a new one: chemical castration. Amid the casual mentions of serious abuse which Conrad alleges Michael told him about, he also reveals that Michael was chemically castrated by father Joe to maintain his high-pitched voice. Horrifying. But if anyone knows about Michael’s penis, it’s Dr. Conrad Murray. Here’s what he said:
“Joe Jackson was one of the worst fathers to his children in history. The cruelty expressed by Michael that he experienced at the hand of his father, particularly the bad treatment and moreover the fact that he was chemically castrated to maintain his high-pitched voice is beyond words. I knew and cared for Michael very well and he told me of the many sufferings at the hands of his father that he encountered. It was incredible, beyond imagination and words. I would not shed a single tear for the passing of this cruel and evil man: Joe Jackson. It is said only the good die young. I hope Joe Jackson finds redemption in Hell.”
“I hope Joe Jackson finds redemption in Hell” is the shadiest drag of a recently dead person I have ever heard. Wonder what he would say about the man if he were still alive? Joe filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Murray in 2010 but ended up dropping the case; Murray apparently is still pissed about it. It wasn’t enough Joe got written out of Michael’s will, he also needed a post-humous verbal dragging.
While Michael’s shafting his father sure makes it seem like he agrees with Conrad’s opinion of Joe, his daughter Paris Jackson posted a tribute to her grandfather and Prince Jackson made a rant video of his own, but with much more positive pro-Joe messaging.
Welp, there you have it: one of the most iconic musical artists of history may have been chemically castrated to sing that way. I’ve heard of bad stage parents but that’s another level. And we thought Kris Jenner was bad? Who knows if this is true though, lets be real: Dr. Conrad seems about as credible a source as Dr. Bootsy, the drug dealer whose phone number is spray painted on an underpass by my apartment. If we really want to get to the bottom of this we’ll need some more information. Detective La Toya Jackson, come out of retirement and get on the case!
