Dr. Conrad Murray, the terrible physician convicted of involuntary manslaughter in the 2009 death of Michael Jackson, is still not showing remorse.

Moreover, he’s taking new shots at MJ’s mother.

In a phone interview, Conrad Murray accuses 82-year-old Katherine Jackson of letting him down and “failing to be there” while he was alive.

Asked if he’d ask forgiveness from Katherine for giving the insomniac star a cocktail of drugs that led to his death, Murray was incredulous.

“Mrs Jackson does not have to forgive me because I am not responsible for his death,” he said. “There is nothing for her to forgive me for.”

“I would say this: Is anyone willing to ever forgive Mrs. Jackson for failing to be the mother she could have been for her son? Would Michael forgive his mother for not being the mother that he wanted to be there all the time?”


Now serving four years at Los Angeles County Jail, Murray said he would be more than happy to sit down and talk with Katherine Jackson.

Somehow we don’t see that invite being extended.

In the telephone call, Murray again professed innocence and said he was closer to Michael Jackson’s children than the star’s own family.

Murray also alleged that Michael’s 85-year-old father, Joe Jackson, could be receiving money from his son’s vast fortune via Katherine.

Joe, who has been accused of beating his son as a child, may be enjoying payouts from Katherine’s allowance, according to the doctor.

“She is probably handing out funds to his father,” said Murray. “[Michael] would roll in his grave if he knew Joe Jackson spent a penny of his money.”

Last month police were called to Michael’s kids’ home in Calabasas, Calif., when Randy, Jermaine and Janet Jackson tried to take them away.

Katherine Jackson had been reported missing at the time, a possible victim of a long con involving a trip to Arizona she did not consent to.

Jermaine and Tito have backed off their threats against the estate, while Janet Jackson’s statement on Michael’s will offers no such olive branch.

Despite strongly insinuating that she was kidnapped as part of this failed coup attempt to oust Michael Jackson’s executors, Katherine Jackson has no plans to sue her own children. That’s good to hear at least.
