Court Hears Shocking Recording of Incoherent Michael Jackson
It was a breathtaking moment at the manslaughter trial of Dr. Conrad Murray. The court listened to a barely coherent Michael Jackson, apparently stoned on medication, says he never had a childhood in an explosive tape recording just played in court.
Jackson said, "My performances will be up there helping my children and always be my dream. I love them. I love them because I didn't have a childhood. I had no childhood. I feel their pain. I feel their hurt. I can deal with it."
"You okay?" Murray asked.
"I am asleep," Jackson said.
It's a previously unheard portion of that same recording of Michael Jackson that has already shocked the world. Jackson said, "When people leave this show, when people leave my show, I want them to say, 'I've never seen nothing like this in my life.' "
The explosive tape recording was made six weeks before Michael Jackson died. Dr. Murray recorded the conversation on his iPhone and forensic experts were later able to retrieve it.
The King of Pop can also reportedly be heard on the tape calling his own family "greedy" and "uncaring," and says he felt he was being used for money by the Jackson family.
"This is going to be the ugliest part of the trial for the Jackson family because first, they have to hear Michael Jackson in this woozy, incoherent state, and then they have to hear him say not-so-nice things about them, and that's got to be so difficult to hear this knowing that this man has passed away and there's no way to heal whatever he said or find closure with that," says HLN's Jane Velez-Mitchell.
As brother Jermaine arrived at court Wednesday, INSIDE EDITION's Jim Moret asked him about the bombshell recording. He was caught him by surprise that it even existed.
"Are you worried about more tape of Michael talking being played in court?" Moret asked.
"What?" said Jermaine. "No."
Now the Jackson family is devastated that we're hearing a side of Michael that they never wanted the world to know.
