It’s another day so that means there’s another story chronicling Conrad Murray’s drama-filled life behind bars. Radaronline is now reporting that his attorney Michael Flanagan has just jilted the disgraced former doctor of Michael Jackson.

A source told Radaronline, “Flanagan will inform Murray during his next jailhouse visit that he will no longer be representing him.” The lawyer was repping Murray in his fight against the California Medical Board to get his medical license reinstated. 

Flanagan was also assisting Valerie Wass, his co-counsel, and Murray's other attorney. Flanagan will now refer Murray to other attorneys that can help him with his case.

Exactly one week ago, Flanagan and his son got into a jailhouse physical and verbal altercation with Wass while visiting Murray. Just days after that, a weeping voicemail message from Murray was leaked to the press. It’s now been reported that Murray’s girlfriend, Nicole Alvarez, was the source of that recording. She allegedly sold the voicemail message to a website so that she could pay her rent.

In other King of Pop association news, Michael Jackson’s former doctor is being sued for sexual misconduct with a female patient. TMZ is reporting that Dr. Allen Metzger, who went on tour with Jackson and testified at Murray’s manslaughter trial, got inappropriate with a patient named Victoria Oliver.

During one of Oliver’s 2010 medical visits she claims Metzger described her body as “delicious” after a physical exam. Then in 2012, the touchy feely doctor allegedly placed his hand under her blouse. Metzger then asked, “Why don’t we close the door and really have some fun?” He later snuck behind her and groped her breasts while pressing himself against her body.

Oliver, who filed her lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court, is suing for unspecified damages. So far, Metzger has no comment on the matter.
