Michael Jackson’s ex-wife Debbie Rowe has threatened to help a fan of the King of Pop kill his disgraced physician.
Dr. Conrad Murray was convicted of administering the propofol dose that killed Jackson in 2009 and he has spent the past two years behind bars. He was released earlier this month.
And after the medic revealed in a recent interview that he and his former boss would joke about Rowe’s looks, the former nurse, who is the mother of the late pop star’s two eldest children, has hit back.
She tells TMZ.com that Murray should watch what he says and look out, because within 18 months “a Jackson fan will shoot him dead, and I’d buy the bullet. I wouldn’t shoot him but I’d buy the bullet.”
Commenting on Murray’s remarks about her looks, she adds, “If I had a dog as ugly as him, I’d shave its a**, make it walk backwards and put a wig on it… At least I can breed. He can’t even write prescriptions anymore.”
A Los Angeles Court sentenced Dr. Conrad Murray to 4 years in prison for involuntary manslaughter in the 2009 death of Michael Jackson. Four years was the maximum penalty Murray could receive. His lawyer, Ed Chernoff, asked for probation instead of jail, but Judge Michael Pastor slammed the request.
“He engaged in this money for medicine madness that simply is not going to be tolerated by me,” Pastor said.
“He violated the trust of the medical community, of his colleagues and of his patient and he has absolutely no sense of remorse, absolutely no sense of fault, and is and remains dangerous,” Pastor added.
Pastor postponed making a decision on the prosecution’s request that Murray, 58, be ordered to pay $100 million in restitution. The amount is the estimated value of Jackson’s estate had he completed the concert tour he was preparing for at the time of his death.
A jury of seven men and five women convicted Murray of involuntary manslaughter earlier this month after two days of deliberation. Prosecutor David Walgren accused Murray of “extreme criminal negligence” for administering Propofol, a powerful and dangerous anesthetic, to Jackson without proper monitoring. Jackson died on June 25, 2009 of acute Propofol intoxication. Murray waited 20 minutes after Jackson stopped breathing to call paramedics, according to witnesses.

Janet Jackson is determined to attend Dr. Conrad Murray’s upcoming involuntary manslaughter trial, because she wants to “see justice” served for the death of her beloved brother Michael.
The medic stands accused of administering the drug Propofol which killed the King of Pop in June, 2009.
Jackson has previously spoken out against Murray and blamed the physician for the singer’s death, telling talk show host Oprah Winfrey, “Yes, I do (blame him). He’s the one that was administering the drug, from what I do know.”
Murray has pleaded not guilty to the charge and will go to trial on 28 March (11) – and the Nasty hitmaker insists she will be front and centre in the Los Angeles courtroom with other grieving members of her famous family to witness proceedings.
In a candid TV interview with Meredith Vieira, she says, “It’s tough sitting in the courtroom.
“(But) it’s my brother, it’s my blood, he’s no longer here because of X, Y and Z. I think it’s important to every family who’s lost someone (to attend court). You want to see justice.”
A preview of Jackson’s interview aired on the Todayshow on Friday (11Feb11). The full chat will be broadcast on news programme Dateline on Sunday night (February 13).
was dead an hour before his body arrived at the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center in June, 2009, according to testimony from emergency room doctor Richelle Cooper.
The doctor took the stand at an ongoing preliminary hearing which will dictate whether or not Jackson’s physician Dr. Conrad Murray will stand trial on involuntary manslaughter charges relating to the King of Pop’s death.
Cooper revealed she gave paramedics who raced to the singer’s rented Holmby Hills, Los Angeles home the authorisation to pronounce the Thriller singer dead.
However, Murray – who found the star’s lifeless body in his bedroom – insisted they try to resuscitate the King of Pop for almost an hour.
Cooper told the court on Thursday (06Jan10) she authorised paramedics to pronounce Jackson dead at 12.57pm on 25 June, 2009, but they declined at Murray’s request – and because of the singer’s celebrity.
Cooper officially pronounced Jackson dead at 2.26pm after the singer’s body arrived at the hospital.
Murray’s girlfriend Nicole Alvarez, who the doctor called from the ambulance to UCLA, has been ordered to appear in court on Friday (Jan 7). The preliminary hearing began on Tuesday (Jan 4) and is expected to last two weeks.
