Dr Murray added:
This is about setting the record straight. Many things have been written about Michael by people who didn’t know him or understand him or his life.
For just over three years, I spoke to him every day and was with him every week. He said to me: ‘I have four members of my family Conrad; you, Paris, Prince and Blanket. You are all I have.
This Is It [which is the name of the book] is the true story of Michael’s life that has never been told. It is the final word. It is the story of who Michael Jackson really was. It’s the truth. Everything else out there is entirely speculative. Everyone thinks they know the story – but they don’t.
As friends, Michael and I shared a lot of secrets that have never been shared with anyone else. When you are friends, your colleague speaks and tells you things he doesn’t tell others.
Murray was charged with the involuntary manslaughter of Jackson and served two years of a four year suspended sentence.
