Conrad Murray: Michael Jackson's kids were 'brainwashed'

Conrad Murray says Michael Jackson's kids were "brainwashed".

The former doctor - who was convicted in 2011 of involuntary manslaughter for his part in the 'Thriller' hitmaker's 2009 death - is convinced the star's three children Paris, 18, Prince Michael, 19, and Blanket, 14, were "trained" to hate him.

Conrad penned a book called 'This Is It! The Secret lives of Dr. Conrad Murray and Michael Jackson' and it was slammed by Paris, who tweeted when it was released: "The fact that people are actually listening to and believing a cold blooded murderer is honestly beyond me."

And speaking about Paris, he told Page Six: "[Paris] is a child. She's a young adult. She's been tainted. They've trained her to be dishonest. I'm not responsible for that.

"You can be 18, but if you're tainted with the wrong thoughts, sometimes it depends on how strong one's mind is. She may be a different person when she passes 25 and she really is mature and her frontal lobes and faculties are truly developed with her own judgment, and she clearly may have a different impression."

Meanwhile, Conrad's tome made revelations about Michael's life such as he bleached his skin to "erase his memory" of his alleged abusive father Joe Jackson.

Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz about the reason behind Michael's cosmetic surgery, Conrad said: "In the book we talked about him running away from his memory. I used the word morphological changing and basically of course he was morphing himself, it doesn't matter that his skin was bleached or whether his structural face is good or whether his nose it like a northern athlete. That may have been a mixture of things.

"But many times when he on his own he had more because he was trying to erase his memory."

Conrad says Michael even contemplated undergoing a brain operation to be at peace with himself.

He said: "But he could not erase his memory so that's when he talked to me about the brain operation."
