​Conrad Murray Claims Michael Jackson Was 'Chemically Castrated' By Father

There have always been many stories doing the rounds about the famous Jackson family - some worrying, some wonderful, some downright weird.

Well, the latest one comes from Conrad Murray - the disgraced doctor who was Michael Jackson's personal physician before being jailed for involuntary manslaughter, after the late singer died from a significant overdose of the anaesthetic propofol.

Conrad served four years for involuntary manslaughter, although still maintains that he is innocent.

But now he is speaking out about Michael's father, Joe, who died last month.

In a clip obtained by The Blast, Conrad not only slammed Joe's parenting, but also made claims that the father and manager of the sibling pop band 'chemically castrated' son Michael to maintain his high-pitched voice.

Conrad said: "Joe Jackson was one of the worst fathers to his children in history.

"The cruelty expressed by Michael that he experienced at the hand of his father.

"The fact that he was chemically castrated to maintain his high-pitched voice is beyond words."

Conrad's allegations stem from claims made in 2016, when he said that Joe had given Michael hormone injections to stop his voice from getting any deeper.

He's also made similarly controversial claims about the King of Pop and his family before, having self-published a tell-all book in 2016 called This Is It! The Secret Lives of Dr Conrad Murray and Michael Jackson.

In the book, Murray writes that Joe was 'obsessed' with preserving his son's voice, saying: "[Jackson] began talking vaguely, seeming to have more difficulty describing precisely what happened to him. But what Michael said left me the impression that he had been given injections, probably some hormones, to delay his puberty."

Many of Jackson's family members have leapt to Joe's defence following his recent death.

The Sun reports that Michael's son Prince hit out on Instagram, saying in a video: "One of the things I'm going to talk about today is my grandpa about what y'all got to fucking say about him.

"So y'all can keep on talking all this shit, saying he abused my dad and all this and you'll make a YouTube video about it for sure.

"But he raised these kids right, otherwise they would have been in gangs or fucking dead.

"So go ahead, keep talking shit, but you won't ever be as great as one of that man's fucking balls."
