Murray Claims Jackson Betrayed Him In Controversial Documentary

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — In a controversial television documentary that aired Friday, Dr. Conrad Murray claims that Michael Jackson betrayed him.

The one-hour documentary titled “Michael Jackson and the Doctor: A Fatal Friendship” was shot secretly during the Murray’s trial and contained extensive interviews conducted with Murray, as well as candid discussions by his defense team.

The documentary also revealed that Murray’s defense team was so strapped for cash, Texas-based Ed Chernoff stayed at the home of Murray’s other attorney, Michael Flanagan.

Cameras also captured Murray’s reaction just months after the pop star died and in the months and days leading up to the verdict.

Murray is seen on tape talking about sharing similar grief with Jackson over troubled childhoods, as well as seeing Jackson cry on several occasions.

In the end, Murray said he felt betrayed by Jackson and couldn’t resist his plea for propofol.

The film was produced by Britain-based Zodiak Rights and aired on MSNBC over the furious objection of the Jackson family.

Also revealed on Friday — a driver who drove Murray daily during his trial — claims he witnessed producers of the documentary deliver perks to the doctor and his attorneys.
