$300K Conrad Murray Interview Airs Friday

Filed under : Celebrity News

Friday night will see the airing of the NBC Universal documentary, Michael Jackson and the Doctor: A Fatal Friendship. The TV station paid over $300K to get the interview with Conrad Murray.

It is said that Murray will not profit personally from the interview fee, but it sure helps him out as the money is allegedly going to his team of lawyers and any money left over will go to his girlfriend and baby mama, Nicole Avarez.

The documentary about Michael Jackson’s death will be broadcast on MSNBC on Friday night. It will feature an interview with Conrad Murray talking about the death of his former patient.

Murray was found guilty of the involuntary manslaughter of Michael Jackson on Monday. He was refused bail and is currently in custody awaiting sentencing.

Presumably, that should mean that he cannot profit from his crime. However, the $300K paid for the Conrad Murray interview will go to pay his lawyers, Ed Chernoff, Michael Flanagan, and Nareg Gourjian. Any money left over will go to Nicole Alvarez, his girlfriend and the mother of his young son.

If, like me, you’re confused on how this doesn’t benefit Conrad Murray, as it is then money he does not personally have to find, then you are in good company.

The executors of Michael Jackson’s Estate, John Branca and John McClain have sent a letter to NBC expressing their outrage about the documentary, whose primetime slot will showcase  Jackson’s former personal physician “as if he is worthy of celebrity.”

They point out in the letter that there was a very real victim of Conrad Murray’s crime; Michael Jackson, “a loving father, an incredible talent and someone who had much left to give the world.”

Dr. Murray will be sentenced on November 29, 2011, and could face four years in state prison. He was placed in custody immediately after the jury announced their verdict. He is now on 24-hour suicide watch, kept away from other prisoners for his own safety.

Michael Jackson and the Doctor: A Fatal Friendship is scheduled to air on Friday night. Will you be watching it?  Are you interested to see what Murray says, given that the jury clearly did not accept his view of events leading up to Michael Jackson’s death?

    I think it’s sick that NBC would give $300,000.00 to talk to a criminal. He is a murderer, whether he meant to kill Michael Jackson, which in my own personal opinion HE DID, or not, he is still the hand that killed the King Of Pop and I think IT”S SICK that NBC is going to air this mans lies and garbage and especially pay him $300,000.00 to boot. If Murray wants to tell his story fine, let him get in front of the camera and do it, but NOT get paid for it, that’s like paying Mark David Chapman to give an interview on Dec 8th about John Lennon. It’s ludacris and sick and crosses the line. Conrad Murray DOES NOT deserve to get paid for killing someone, just because he killed MICHAEL JACKSON makes that no DIFFERENT! Air it, and I will personally start a BAN on NBC
