Disturbing Slurred Michael Jackson Audio Released In Conrad Murray Trial: ‘I Hurt’

On America Live this afternoon, Megyn Kelly played a disturbing voicemail from pop star Michael Jackson recorded on Conrad Murray‘s iPhone May 10th, 2009, six weeks before the singer’s death. “I hurt,” a barely comprehensible Jackson is heard saying. “You know, I hurt.”

JACKSON: “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. ‘Heal the World,’ ‘We Are the World,’ ‘Will You Be There,’ ‘The Lost Children.’ These are the songs I’ve written because I hurt. You know, I hurt.”

Prosecutors in Murray’s involuntary manslaughter trial played the full audio recording for jurors Wednesday.

Lawyers argue that Murray was criminally responsible for Jackson’s death due to medical negligence in giving the singer propofol as a sleep aid for the singer.

Kelly, who was clearly spellbound by the lurid audio, shook her head in disbelief.
