Murray told girlfriends of Jackson's unconscious state
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA (AHN) -- Two of cardiologist Conrad Murray's girlfriends who testified before the Los Angeles court on Tuesday shared that the doctor informed them of Michael Jackson's unconscious state on the day the pop icon died.
Sade Anding, a cocktail waitress in Houston, told the court that Murray called her at 11:51 a.m. on June 25, 2009. In the middle of an 11-minute conversation with her boyfriend, she realized Murray was no longer on the line, but she could still hear voices and coughing.
Anding said the phone could have been in Murray's pocket. She said she did not recognize the voices and eventually hung up. She tried to call and text him after the incident, but Murray did not call or text back.
By that time, Murray was attempting to revive the 50-year-old singer and accompanied his patient to the UCLA hospital where Jackson was eventually declared dead.
Prosecutors accused Murray of injecting Jackson with a lethal dose of propofol but the doctor insisted the pop icon administered the sedative on himself without his approval.
The second girlfriend who testified was 29-year-old Nicole Alvarez who has lived with Murray and their son in a $2,500 Santa Monica apartment since 2009. Murray has six other children by different women, according to court documents.
Alvarez and two other Murray girlfriends knew he was treating Jackson, which is a breach of doctor-patient confidentiality. Alvarez recounted that Murray introduced her to Jackson at the singer's residence and the pop icon noticed her pregnancy at the time of her visits.
She admitted receiving FedEx shipments of propofol addressed to Murray at their apartment in April, May and June 2009.
The third Murray girlfriend, Bridgette Morgan of Los Angeles, testified on Monday that she called the doctor at 11:26 a.m., but he did not pick up the phone. The fourth girlfriend, Michelle Bella, an employee of a Las Vegas nightclub, said Murray texted her at 8:35 a.m. on June 25 to set a meeting with her before he left for London with his famous patient.
A fifth witness, Tim Lopez, operator of a pharmacy, disclosed that Murray often ordered a cream used for treating vitiligo - a condition that Jackson suffered from - and eventually propofol. Lopez said Murray ordered a total of 225 vials of the sedative from him which he shipped to Alvarez's apartment in LA.
While the trial of Murray is ongoing, four of Jackson's siblings are holding a concert in Cardiff at the Millennium Stadium on Saturday. The concert by Marlon, Tito, Jackie and LaToya Jackson have been criticized by two other siblings, Jermaine and Randy, as ill-timed.
Tito defended the concert as a tribute to their brother who was an entertainer and dedicated his entire life to others. Performing with the four Jackson siblings are the Black Eyed Peas, Christina Aguilera, Beyonce and Cee Lo Green. Randy, Jermaine and Janet Jackson said they will not attend the Saturday concert because they want to focus on getting justice for Michael.
