Conrad Murray spent 2 years in jail after being convicted guilty of Michael Jackson’s death. However, the disgraced doctor continues to assume his innocence on the pop icon’s passing.

In an interview with TMZ, Murray explained that he did not administer medication that would harm Michael. To prove his innocence, Murray claimed that Jackson did not tell him he was taking other drugs besides Propofol, which Murray admitted to have given the artist.

“He never told me he was abusing narcotics,” Murray said.

Moreover, Murray points his finger to other doctors who could have caused the negative effects in Michael’s health.

“He never shared to me that Dr. Arnold Klein was pumping him up on a daily basis, so that 900 sometimes also 1000 milligrams of Demerol,” Murray revealed.

“But I will tell you this,” he added. “Michael never complained about pain that required that kind of treatment.”

Murray served as the pop icon’s doctor and confidant for three years. When the megastar collapsed in his home in Beverly Hills, Murray admitted he was not with Michael at the time. However, he claimed that when he found Michael, he did his best to resuscitate him.

Furthermore, as reported by Daily Mail, Murray insisted that MJ still had signs of life when he was brought to the hospital. ER medics, however, pronounced that Jackson was clinically dead and the singer did not have any pulse when he arrived at the hospital.

The coroner in the case ruled Michael’s death as the result of acute propofol intoxication in combination with sedatives. Murray, who admitted administering Propofol, was convicted of involuntary manslaughter. He had his medical licence revoked and was sentenced to four years' imprisonment.

Now, Murray continues to defend himself, insisting that his medical prescriptions did not cause Michael’s death, but more so by other factors combined.

“Michael Jackson did not die from propofol,” Murray stated. “Nothing that I gave Michael Jackson should’ve harmed him.”

While defending himself, Murray continues to disclose personal details of Michael Jackson and has even authored a tell-all book titled "This is It!"
