Conrad Murray claims to be holding an explosive secret about Michael Jackson that would do irreparable harm to both sides of the wrongful death trial the Jackson family has waged against AEG, reports TMZ.
The shady doctor, currently serving a prison sentence for manslaughter stemming from his involvement in the death of the King of Pop, left a voice message for Katherine Jackson and AEG lawyers threatening to reveal a "nuclear secret" about Jackson's real relationship with his family if he's forced to testify.
"Please stop. If you don’t, let this serve as my final warning to both sides," he says. "Don’t incite me to testify. Consider this as an imminent nuclear warning. Enough is enough." The former doctor, who has been stripped of his medical license, was subpoenaed to testify in the trial, but pleads the Fifth Amendment, claiming he does not want to incriminate himself before his appeal to overturn his manslaughter sentence.
This is the second time Murray has threatened to reveal a deep, dark secret about Jackson, who died in 2009. The music icon has already been accused of child molestation, prescription drug abuse and other forms of bizarre behavior before his untimely death.
MJ's mother Katherine Jackson, along with several members of the Jackson family, are suing concert promoter AEG for $40 billion (yes, billion) and claim the company is primarily responsible for Michael's death.
The hitmaker's daughter Paris Jackson, 15, is reportedly currently receiving treatment at a live-in rehabilitation facility following a suicide attempt in June. Sources say Paris will remain away from the public eye until the conclusion of the wrongful death trial.
