In what some are describing as a “bizarre” phone message, Conrad Murray, the doctor who is serving a four-year sentence in jail in the Michael Jackson death case, telephoned Paris Jackson, who was hospitalized Wednesday after cutting herself with a kitchen knife and taking 20 Motrin pills.
TMZ got a hold of the audio message. ABC News confirmed that Murray left the late singer’s daughter a voice mail, and says he was “gravely affected” by her current crisis.
“I can tell you’re not doing well,” Murray can be heard saying. “I wanted you to know that I am here for you. I have never been gone. I always will be available to listen to you, answer your questions or to share with you a plethora of beautiful … untold stories of your father. As well as his venerable thoughts of you that he shared with me.”
He goes on to say, “Paris, when you feel all alone or when your heart feels heavy … just know that you’re not alone. And your Daddy loved you beyond any explanation.”
He added, “Paris, I, too, love you as a precious father loves his own child and I always will.”
Murray mentions a time she consoled him and he was “touched” by her compassion. He tells her he is always available to talk. “I love you Paris. You are my dear daughter in Christ.”
He says, “I’ll be praying for you, I hope that you’ll get well soon and don’t forget you are loved.”
