Dr. Conrad Murray will testify in the Michael Jackson wrongful death lawsuit filed by Katherine Jackson, who is looking to collect damages from AEG.

Michael’s mother wants Murray to testify about comments he made in his documentary, in which Murray said AEG honchos told him MJ was on “death skid row.”

AEG, Murray claimed, boasted in 2009 that it owned “the toilet paper he wipes his ass with” and “the f**kin’ popsicles that his children are sucking on.”

Referring to his ill-fated This Is It concert dates, the promoter allegedly told Murray, Jackson’s physician, “if he doesn’t get the show done he’s over.”

Katherine thinks Murray’s comments will help her convince a jury that AEG played fast and loose with her son’s life, and showed no concern for his welfare.

Dr. Conrad Murray was reckless too, of course, but he’s already doing time for manslaughter and more or less broke. So AEG, his employer, is KJ’s target.

Murray was fighting the subpoena he was given demanding he be deposed, but a judge ordered him to do it; now he’ll have to take the oath next month.
