Michael Jackson - Dr. Conrad Murray 'Distracted By Women'

Subscribe to Michael Jackson alerts

Prosecution lawyers claim Dr. Conrad Murray was preoccupied with calling women on the morning Michael Jackson died.

Phone records show the doctor - who is to be tried on charges of involuntary manslaughter - sent a text to a stripper, spoke to a cocktail waitress, and received repeated calls from a third woman on the morning of June 25, 2009, the day his patient died from acute Propofol intoxication.

Papers filed by prosecution lawyers state details of Dr. Murray's relationships with the three women should be heard by the jury as they are "relevant to show Dr. Murray's level of inattentiveness and distraction while he was responsible for the care of Mr. Jackson."

On the morning of the singer's passing, Dr. Murray had administered a number of painkillers to the 'Thriller' hitmaker, including lorazepam and the sedative midazolam before giving him a dose of Propofol. He said to have texted Michelle Bella, a dancer at the Spearmint Rhino gentleman's club in Las Vegas, at around 8:30 am, then spoke to cocktail waitress Sade Anding at 11:51 for around 11 minutes, a call which he is believed to have terminated when he realised the singer wasn't breathing.

Dr. Murrray - who was living with exotic dancer Nicole Alvarez at the time - also received two missed calls from a third woman, Bridgette Morgan, he met at a Las Vegas strip club in 2003, according to the prosecutors.

Brigette was trying to reach him to discuss a plane ticket he promised to buy her during a lunch date earlier that month, court documents stated.

The prosecution claim: "He was receiving personal phone calls during The Hours when he was supposed to be completely focused on the care of Mr. Jackson," and that the calls - 11 in total - should be admissible as evidence as they feel it shows a pattern of "inattentiveness and distraction."

Dr. Murray neglected to mention the phonecalls during his first interview with police after Jackson's death.

His defence team have previously made moves to bar evidence involving "sexually scandalous information", including Murray's visits to strip clubs.

They argued: "This evidence has no rational bearing on any issue in this matter and is presented merely to harass and discredit Dr. Murray."
