“This is the story of who Michael Jackson really was,” says Murray speaking from his home in Florida. “He wanted me to tell this story – now I am fulfilling his wish.”
The book This Is It, serialised in the Sunday Mirror, incredibly claims that Jackson wanted to marry a famous British child actress – after falling in love when she was just 11 years old.
But that was Jackson’s second choice...his first, Murray claims, was the 12-year-old daughter of a British friend who was aged just five when he set eyes on her. Murray also says Jackson was “betrayed” by one his closest relatives – and begged Dr Murray to protect his own family from the person should anything happen to him.
Despite the astonishing nature of the claims Murray refuses to say whether he considered Jackson to be evil or a danger to children.
He says: “You must read the book and make those decisions for yourself.”Asked if he would leave his own son with him, he replies:
“Read the book. It answers all those questions.”Murray was Jackson’s private physician for more than three years and, often, live-in companion. He was blamed for the singer’s premature death and served two years of a four-year prison sentence in 2011 for involuntary manslaughter.
