Michael Jackson’s former doctor has made some outrageous revelations in a book he has written about the superstar, claiming that the King of Pop allegedly fell in love with his god-daughter and wanted to marry British actress Emma Watson when she was 11 years old.
Dr. Conrad Murray, the singer’s personal physician, was found guilty and sent to jail for involuntary manslaughter following the singer’s death in 2011 due to a prescription drugs overdose. He served two years out of his four-year sentence and was released in October 2013 due to good behavior and California prison overcrowding.
Personal Details or Scam?
During the last years, he wrote a sensation tell-all called “This Is It,” in which he unveils very personal details from the pop icon’s life. The book will be published on Tuesday, but some bits and pieces from its content have already made their way online.
Murray says he was not only Michael’s personal physician but also his close friend and confidant and that the star trusted him with his darkest secrets.
Moreover, the doctor claims Jackson himself urged him to write the book so that people could find out the true story of his life. He says it will answer many questions the fans had about the King of Pop.
Emma and Harriet – the brides to be
As it turns out, an entire chapter of the book talks about Michael Jackson’s obsession with very young girls. And apparently, two of them were actress Emma Watson and the 12-year-old daughter of his good friend Mark Lester.
According to the doctor’s claims, the superstar became infatuated with the Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone leading actress when she was 11 years old, by the time she became known for her role in the aforementioned movie.
However, Emma was only the singer’s “second choice for a bride if things did not work out with Harriet [Mark Lester’s daughter].”
Michael fell in love with Harriet when she was roughly five years old. Then, by age 12, he grew to become fixated on her.
The 63-year-old doctor goes as far as to state that the singer wanted to pay Lester a visit and discuss plans for matrimony and that he had looked at possible ways to get away with marrying a girl so young.
Besides these allegations, Murray also recounts other grim details from Michael Jackson’s life, including an episode when the star wanted to go to a strip club but decided to have escorts come to his hotel room instead.
As mentioned above, the doctor says he had the singer’s blessing to write this book and insists that money was not his motivation.
