Conrad Murray reached out to Paris Jackson, 15, from Men’s Central Jail in downtown Los Angeles where he is serving a four-year sentence for delivering the fatal dose of sedatives to Michael Jackson in 2009, TMZ reported.
“I don’t know if there’s anything I can do to solve your pain or help you with your problem but I wanted you to know that I am here for you,” Murray, 60, said in a recorded message posted on the gossip site. “I have never been gone.”
In the bizarre call he described as “a letter” to Paris, he even dared echo the lyrics of one of her dead dad’s hits, “You are not alone.”
“Just know that you are not alone,” Murray said.
“I am here for you.”
A police source confirmed Thursday that Paris took 20 Motrin pills and sliced her wrist with a kitchen knife at 1:27 a.m. Wednesday in the Calabasas mansion she shares with her siblings, Prince, 16, and Blanket, 11, and grandmother, Katherine Jackson.
The pressure of having to testify in the Jackson family’s wrongful death lawsuit against concert promoter AEG became too much for Paris to bear, sources told the Daily News Wednesday.
Other factors in the suicide bid emerged Thursday, as well.
A source said that Jacko’s only daughter had recently felt increasingly isolated from her family.
“Paris has been depressed for a while. She stays in her room all the time and only comes out for meals. She doesn’t interact with anyone in the house,” the source told [email protected] “Prince has his (driver’s) license and his own car and a girlfriend who also has her own car, so he’s not there much. Blanket is too small for her to hang around.”
Paris had also become increasingly overwhelmed by the cyberbullying that followed her every tweet.
Her tweet “I wanna be a fishie,” which accompanied an image of her underwater provides one brutal example.
“Die…lesbian,” responded one troll on Twitter.
On May 29 a Twitter war with another user included a barrage of brutal insults like “you’re such a bully. That’s why your dad is dead,” “ugly bi—” and “your dad touched little boys.”
One of the last heartless messages was simply: “You ugly d— kill yourself.”
Paris remains hospitalized. In spite of it all the source said she “is doing very well.”
As she recovers, Murray wanted her to know she’s in his thoughts.
“I don’t know what you’re going through, but I’m sure whatever it is it must be difficult,” Murray said in the bizarre call.
“I always will be available to listen to you, answer your questions, or to share with you a plethora of beautiful and savored, untold stories of your father.”
Murray was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in 2011, after a jury held him responsible for providing Jackson the lethal cocktail of drugs that killed him in 2009.
The death led to the ongoing high-stakes legal battle that could cost concert promoter AEG billions.
The Jackson family claims the company acted negligently in hiring Murray as Jackson’s doctor for the doomed “This Is It” tour.
AEG has denied any wrongdoing, saying it was the “Thriller” singer who struck a deal with the Las Vegas cardiologist and that they were unaware of the degree of Jackson’s chemical dependence.
Murray’s nearly four-minute message — in which he says he loves Paris “as a father” — was heartfelt, Murray’s lawyer said.
“He felt compelled to make a statement right away,” attorney Valerie Wass told the Daily News.
“I know he’s always been genuinely concerned about Michael’s kids and their well-being. He genuinely loves those kids, and (Paris’ suicide attempt) obviously is upsetting to him.”
