For Today in Conspiracy Corner we go to Neverland! You know, Neverland – as in the world of the late, great Michael Jackson and his illustrious family. Rolling Stone just interviewed the King of Pop’s 18 year-old daughter Paris Michael Katherine Jackson. In the interview she revealed a real thriller of an accusation. Some smooth criminal had murdered her father.
Back in 2009 the world was rocked by the news of the Man in The Mirror’s death. At the time investigators said that Jackson died of “acute propofol and benzodiazepine intoxication” at home. This led to his personal physician Conrad Murray being convicted of involuntary manslaughter for giving Jackson all the sleepy drugs. Basically Jackson couldn’t sleep and was paying his doctor to get him juiced up on hospital grade anesthetics at night –he couldn’t stop until he got enough.
Now it seems Paris wants to be starting something. She says Murray was just the fall guy who got the manslaughter charges but couldn’t beat it. There was actually whole conspiracy to have MJ offed so everyone could cash in on the hundreds of millions of dollars’ worth of music publishing rights owned by Sony Music.
So why does she now feel that Michael Jackson was murdered?
“Because it’s obvious. All arrows point to that. It sounds like a total conspiracy theory and it sounds like bullshit, but all real fans and everybody in the family knows it. It was a setup. It was bullshit.”
So who would moonwalk all over the corpse of one of the most beloved pop icons in history? In a post fact world it doesn’t see like you need much evidence to go on, but Paris is holding out for justice. Conspiracies like this can make you want to scream. When asked if she wants revenge she says;
“I definitely do, but it’s a chess game. And I am trying to play the chess game the right way. And that’s all I can say about that right now.”
