Dr. Conrad Murray is writing a tell-all book. Hey, he has to pass the time wasting away in jail somehow. The number of publishers who care is not high, however.
"Dr. Murray spends most of his days writing what he [says] is a tell-all book about what really happened in the final days of Michael Jackson's life," a source to him says.
"Murray believes that the public will want to hear about the time he spent with Michael ... he says that Michael confided his inner-most secrets about his true feelings."
"[MJ talked] about his family, the child molestation trial and his three children. Murray contends that Michael's kids viewed him as a family member and loved him."
True or not, it all boils down to Murray's boredom. And cash flow problems.
"This is all about money for Murray though ... he is flat broke and desperately needs the cash," the source adds. "He feels that the book could help rehab his image."
Jackson's former physician was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter in connection with the death of the music great and was sentenced to four years in jail.
Attempts to portray himself as a sympathetic figure would be hard enough, but add in the fact that Murray has shown no remorse and it's darn near impossible.
Dude even ripped Katherine Jackson, Michael's mother, for not being there for him.
"Conrad Murray is extremely arrogant and doesn't accept responsibility for the death of Michael Jackson. He truly believes he has done nothing wrong," the insider says.
As a result, when contacted by reps about potential interest in releasing the book by Murray, publishers' collective response so far has been, "no thanks."
Let's all cry a river for that, shall we?
