Dr. Conrad Murray, who was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in the death of Michael Jackson, claims the late Joe Jackson‘s alleged abuses of the singer included “chemical castration.”
“Joe Jackson was one of the worst fathers to his children in history. The cruelty expressed by Michael that he experienced at the hand of his father … the fact that he was chemically castrated to maintain his high-pitched voice is beyond words,” Murray, 65, claimed to The Blast in a video released Friday.
The “chemical castration” theory stems from allegations that Joe had Michael receive hormone injections when he was 12 years old in an effort to cure his acne and prevent his voice from deepening, an allegation Murray previously made in his 2016 self-published book “This Is It! The Secret Lives of Dr. Conrad Murray and Michael Jackson.”
Michael, who died in June 2009 from a lethal mix of propofol and other sedatives, had claimed throughout his life that Joe was physically abusive to him and his siblings while growing up, but never mentioned undergoing any sort of hormonal treatments.
Still, the conspiracy theory has stuck somewhat, with Reddit threads and even podcast episodes devoted to the claim that Joe was determined to have his prodigal son hit high notes through adulthood.
Joe passed away at 89 in June.
Since the Jackson patriarch’s death, grandson Prince Jackson defended his honor, fuming on Instagram, “Keep talking all the s–t you want that he abused my dad. He raised these kids right, otherwise they would have been in gangs or f–king dead.”
Still, Murray, who maintains his innocence despite serving four years for involuntary manslaughter, insists that Michael’s children were brainwashed and that Joe was a monster.
“I would not shed a single tear for the passing of this cruel and evil man, Joe Jackson,” he said in the video. “It is said only the good die young. I hope Joe Jackson finds redemption in hell.”
