Last fall, we reported that Michael Jackson's children may be asked to testify on behalf of Dr. Conrad Murray, as the embattled physician's lawyers seek to establish that the late, great King of Pop had longstanding drug addictions.
While that says little about Murray's actual care, Jackson's kids apparently thought highly of him in that regard too, because their famous father did.
The children refused to believe that their dad died of a heart attack in June 2009, since MJ raved that Dr. Conrad Murray was the best doctor on Earth.
For what it's worth, Michael and the kids loved Murray.
Jackson's former nanny, Grace Rwaramba, has described his addictions in detail, and spoke with LAPD investigators about how Dr. Murray became a "regular" around the house when the singer lived in Vegas, visiting at least twice a week.
Grace said Michael would constantly praise Murray in front of the kids, and that's why after he died, the kids would say, "There's no way daddy could have died of a heart attack because Dr. Murray is the best doctor in the whole world."Grace also said Michael first met Murray through a member of MJ's security team.
As she explains it, Jackson felt he could trust Murray in large part because the security guy claimed he had some sort of mysterious leverage over the doctor.
Grace offered no further explanation about the mysterious leverage, but like everything else related to Michael Jackson, truth is often stranger than fiction.
On an unrelated, but equally peculiar note, Grace says on a family trip to Florida, the kids called 911 when they discovered MJ "passed out" in their hotel.
It's unclear when the incident took place or what caused it.
