Michael Jackson's doctor Conrad Murray pitching his story
Michael Jackson's embattled physician, Dr. Conrad Murray, is allegedly quietly trying to sell his story. With a possible manslaughter indictment and baby mama sapping his assets, Murray is said to be hoping that a book and/or movie deal could be the perfect hypodermic for a quick cash infusion.
Famed writer-producer Lawrence Schiller confirms that he recently got a call from "an interested party" asking for his advice on how Murray's story could be turned into a book and documentary.
Murray's lawyer, Edward Chernoff, denied that Murray is looking to spill what he saw during the few weeks he tended to Jackson. "The doctor has had plenty of offers, but he is not interested in a book deal - he's interested in his freedom," Chernoff told us. "There is no agent out there authorized to make some deal for Dr. Murray (until I make the deal)."
Still, Murray's spokeswoman, Miranda Sevcik, admitted he has "money problems."
