Conrad Murray, Michael Jackson’s Ex-Doctor, Says The Singer Was ‘Chemically Castrated’ By His Late Father Joe Jackson
Joe Jackson allegedly “chemically castrated” his then 12-year-old son Michael Jackson in order to cure his acne and prevent his voice from changing. This comes from Conrad Murray, Michael Jackson’s ex-doctor, who served two years in prison for the involuntary manslaughter of the legendary singer.
The former cardiologist, who has lost his license to practice medicine in three states, called the patriarch “one of the worst fathers to his children in history” in a video discovered by The Blast. He said Michael revealed to him the “many sufferings” he endured “at the hands of his father.”
Murray’s points made in the video echo those of his 2016 book This Is It! The Secret Lives of Dr. Conrad Murray and Michael Jackson.
In the clip released just days after Joe passed away from pancreatic cancer, Murray said, “I hope Joe Jackson finds redemption in hell.”

In 2003, Michael divulged some scary details of his childhood with Joe in the documentary Living With Michael Jackson.
“It was more than just a belt — cords, whatever was around,” the singer recalled. “[He’d] throw you up against the wall as hard as you could. He would lose his temper. … I was so fast, he couldn’t catch me half the time. But when he would catch me? It was bad. It was really bad.”
However, the Jackson family remembered the patriarch in a heartfelt statement, “We want to thank you all for the support you have shown us as we grieve for the patriarch of our family. We mourn the loss of our father and celebrate the life of a man who sacrificed so much to give us the life and success we have today. Thank you for respecting our privacy during this time.”
