Michael Jackson, Dr. Tohme, Elvis Presley and the Las Vegas Doctor to the Stars’ “Sleep Diet” – Part Two

October 20, 2009
By LBG1

In Part One, we outlined the ties between Dr. Tohme R. Tohme and Sig Rogich, one of the three “principals” in Tohme’s TRW Advertising. It was through those ties that we discovered the “tie” between Sig Rogich and Dr. Elias Ghanem, “Las Vegas’ Doctor to the Stars”, a doctor that had both Presley and Michael Jackson as patients.

In Part II, the eerie similarities between Jackson and Presley’s “treatments” for insomnia. In Jackson’s case, the surgical anesthetic drug, propofol, and Presley’s “Sleep Diet”: A “diet” that consisted of Presley heavily sedated for a period of “up to three weeks”, administered by Ghanem, Ghanem’s Las Vegas home.

We discovered other similarities in Michael Jackson and Elvis Presley’s lives. Of both men being “devoutly spiritual” and a distaste for drinking, incurable insomnia, and abuse of prescription drugs. Of both Presley and Jackson’s cause of death related to a “combination of drugs”, and the physicians that had “enabled” the King of Rock N Roll and the King of Pop. And the deepest “tie”: the marriage between Jackson and Presley’s daughter Lisa Marie. Lisa Marie’s claim that Jackson had once “predicted” he’d “end up” like her father, and that she’d ended their marriage after she realized she couldn’t “save” Jackson from the same “destructive behavior”.

Las Vegas’ Doctor to the Stars, Dr. Elias Ghanem, Elvis, and Michael Jackson

On August 8, 2001, the Las Vegas Review published an article on the death of Dr. Elias Ghanem.

“Dr. Elias Ghanem, a Lebanese immigrant who moved effortlessly among the diverse worlds of medicine, politics and boxing, died at his Las Vegas home Monday after a tenacious battle with cancer first diagnosed in 1998. He was 62. In his waning days, the Nevada Athletic Commission chairman was visited by myriad friends from all three worlds, including former President Bill Clinton, who visited him Aug. 21. Known for his skills as a physician as well as his charm and generosity, at one point in his medical career he was dubbed “the physician to the stars.” Among his patients: Elvis Presley, Liberace, Michael Jackson and Clinton’s mother, Virginia Kelley.”

The Review Journal also reported:

Longtime friend Sig Rogich described how during Clinton’s last visit to see Ghanem, in the intensive care unit at MountainView Hospital, a crying nurse told Clinton how she had worked at one of Ghanem’s clinics 15 years ago and had higher aspirations. “Elias said if she was serious about becoming a nurse, he’d take care of it,” Rogich said. “He was a profile in courage,” said Rogich, a political consultant and image maker. “They gave him a few months to live and that was nearly four years ago.”

On March 15, 1976, People published an article on Ghanem, ‘Call Doctor Ghanem,’ Elvis and Other Stars Gasp When They Get Las Vegas Throat .

“Swabbing talented throats may not win Nobel prizes, but the victims tend to be very grateful. Presley alone has lavished upon Ghanem the $32,000 Stutz, a Mercedes, two watches, a $60,000 diamond ring and a gold medallion inscribed “TCB.” (“Elvis’ people say this stands for ‘Take care of business,’ ” Ghanem chortles. “I say it stands for ‘Take care of broads.’ “

In 2003, two years after Ghanem’s death, Contact Music published an article about Michael Jackson in Vegas and a call to a doctor for treatment for Jackson’s “cold and sore throat”. From ContactMusic.com:

MICHAEL JACKSON’S GUARDS BULLIED DOCTOR

A doctor has claimed he was intimidated by Michael Jackson’s bodyguards when he refused to give him prescription drugs during the singer’s stay in Las Vegas in 2003. Michael Jackson’s bodyguard tried to threaten a doctor into giving him prescription drugs.

The unnamed physician visited the Las Vegas hotel suite where the late pop superstar – who died of a suspected cardiac arrest last month – was staying in November 2003 after being told the singer had a cough and sore throat. However, when the doctor arrived he could not find anything wrong with Jackson. He said: “The whole thing was staged. It was all a lie. They just wanted drugs. They wanted me to call in all these pills under someone else’s name.

Dr. Ghanem died in 2001 at age 62. According to the Review Journal, Ghanem began working as an emergency room physician in 1971, began a family practice in 1976, then opened his first clinic behind the Las Vegas Hilton where Elvis Presley became a patient. At the time of Elvis’ death at age 42, in 1977, Dr. Ghanem was 38. More from People:

There he met a princely entertainer with a frog in his throat, removed same—and thus began to acquire a reputation as physician to the stars. Before long he had a Stutz Bearcat, a fleet of jets, flashy jewelry and a mirrored canopy over his bed. He went around saying things like “Fast cars and beautiful women are my hobbies.’ ” He owned real estate and restaurants. He was divorced. There is one big problem with this scenario. The Vegas headliner Dr. Ghanem treated to get his start in showbiz medicine actually was Elvis Presley. But it would not be difficult to find a substitute star or even to cast an entire movie from Ghanem’s roster of patients.

And,

Moving to Las Vegas in 1971, Ghanem was the $3,600-a-month director of the emergency room at Sunrise Hospital when he got a call one night about a raspy voice at the Hilton. It belonged to Presley. Robert Goulet consulted him not long after, and soon Ghanem was the hottest doc in Vegas since Severinsen. “I think it’s the personal touch they like,” says Ghanem. “They call at 2 o’clock in the morning and I go.”

Despite the glitz, by 1976, Dr. Ghanem was in the process of building an outpatient clinic where 50% of the proceeds where to be donated to the University of Reno Medical School. The article stated, that at the time, the doctor was “on call” for nine casinos. Even so, in the Las Vegas Review Journal article on Ghanem’s death, the Journal cited Ghanem’s previous troubles:

Ghanem received extensive press coverage over his medical treatment of Elvis, his unlucky business investments and an FBI investigation into his clinics’ billing practices. He was never charged with a crime. Although he didn’t carry through, Ghanem threatened to sue ABC News’ “20/20″ for reporting that he was one of the doctors who provided drugs that contributed to Elvis’ death.

On March 6, 2003, the Nevada legislature passed a resolution memorializing “prominent physician and philanthropist Elias Ghanem”:

Excerpt:

Whereas, After serving as the hotel doctor for the Las Vegas Hilton, Dr. Ghanem became known as the “physician to the stars” because he became the personal physician to such celebrities as Elvis Presley, Liberace, Michael Jackson, Bill Cosby, Ann-Margret, Wayne Newton and Virginia Kelley, the mother of former President Bill Clinton; and….”

The resolution stated that Ghanem, while serving as the “hotel doctor” for the Las Vegas Hilton became known as the “physician to the stars” then “personal physician” for Michael Jackson and Elvis Presley. Ghanem died in 2001 after battling cancer. In an ironic twist, in 2004, Tom Barrack and Colony Capital purchased the Las Vegas Hilton.

According to the Las Vegas Review, Jackson’s “relationship” with Vegas began during the Jackson Five era in 1974 when Jackson and his brothers performed several times at the original MGM Grand. On May 27, 1974, Lisa Marie Presley, then five, met Michael Jackson, 11, for the first time when Elvis brought Lisa Marie to a Jackson 5 show at the Sahara in Vegas.

Jackson, 15, began a long-term friendship with the magicians Siegfried and Roy, “supplying” the theme song to “Siegfried and Roy at the Mirage”.

Jackson was a frequent guest during the 90′s of hotel mogul Steve Wynn, where Jackson spent “long stretches in the poolside villas of the Mirage”. In 1994, NBC taped the special, “The Jackson Family Honors” in front of a live audience. The occasion: to honor a tribute to Motown Records founder Berry Gordy. The show occurred after Jackson encountered his first round of accusations of child molestation. The audience “erupted” in cheers for Michael as he stood on stage and attempted to pay tribute to Gordy. According to the Review Journal, Elizabeth Taylor, who was a guest, had to quiet the “screaming” and “cheering” crowd before Michael could continue. Michael later joined the group finale. It would be the last time Michael Jackson performed in Las Vegas.

Here’s where the story gets interesting, the eerily similar circumstances between Michael Jackson and Elvis Presley’s last days and deaths, and the special “Sleep Diet” Dr. Ghanem prescribed for Elvis Presley. A “diet” that seemed to be somewhat in the “same vein” as Michael Jackson’s penchant for preferring the powerful anesthetic drug propofol as a “sleep aide”.

According to About.com, it was October 21, 1974, when Dr. Ghanem prescribed the “Sleep Diet” to Elvis Presley:

“Elvis flies to Las Vegas for recent “health problems” that have caused him to miss recent shows, where Dr. Elias Ghanem discovers an ulcerous stomach and begins treating the singer with a special diet and sleep regimen in his home.”

From VisaMagOnline:

“The Sleep Diet was made famous by Elvis Presley. When Elvis became very overweight, he turned to celebrity physician Elias Ghanem in Las Vegas. There were many facets to Ghanem’s treatment, but only the sleep part has remained buzzing around the celebrity network. Essentially, you are sedated for two weeks at a time, resting and sleeping, and fed by tube. It didn’t work for Elvis who gained 10 pounds in the two weeks. It’s not likely to work with anyone because while sleeping and resting your body turns energy use down to 50 to 60 calories per hour. Even if only body fat was lost in those calories, and you were kept unconscious the whole time, it would take three days to lose a pound.”

More on Elvis and Dr. Ghanem and the special “Sleep Diet” from the book, “Me and a guy named Elvis: My Lifelong Friendship with Elvis Presley” by By Jerry Schilling, Chuck Crisafulli:

“Elvis was worried too. During his hospitalization, he’d gotten off all his medications and had tried to get his body to function without the sleeping pills he’d relied on for so long. Doctors had hoped that without the medications, he’d get physically tired enough to reset his body clock. It didn’t happen. In the hospital, Elvis had wanted to get well. He didn’t complain. He didn’t ask for any pain relief or sleep medication. But he couldn’t sleep….

…….

In November, Elvis decided to try and get thin and rested using a new therapy he’d heard about-a “sleep diet” that could reset his metabolism and his sleep cycles through a three-week regimen of liquid nourishment and carefully monitored sedatives. This therapy had been created by Dr. Elias Ghanem, a Las Vegas “doctor to the stars” who had previously treated Elvis during some of his Hilton engagements. In mid-November, Elvis moved into the upstairs bedroom of Ghanem’s home.

…..

“None of us were sure whether or not Dr. Ghanem’s therapy accomplished anything, but the time Elvis spent at his house gave him a chance for deep rest that he found hard to get anywhere else. In December, he checked back in with Ghanem for a second round of the sleep diet.”

According to About.com, on December 30, 1974, due to Presley’s “erratic behavior”, manager Colonel Parker was forced to contact Ghanem:

“For the first time, Colonel Parker is forced to cancel an entire engagement, not just a show here and there, due to Elvis’ increasingly erratic behavior. In writing, the Colonel directs the management of the Vegas Hilton to contact Dr. Ghanem for “the proper interpretation for the appropriate press release.”

The “Strongest” Tie between Michael Jackson and Elvis Presley

“He Knew. Years ago Michael and I were having a deep conversation about life in general. I can’t recall the exact subject matter but he may have been questioning me about the circumstances of my father’s death.” “At some point he paused, he stared at me very intensely and he stated with an almost calm certainty, ‘I am afraid that I am going to end up like him, the way he did.’ I promptly tried to deter him from the idea, at which point he just shrugged his shoulders and nodded almost matter of fact as if to let me know, he knew what he knew and that was kind of that.” Lisa Marie Presley, June 26, 2009

One day after Michael Jackson’s death, Lisa Marie Presley, only child of Elvis Presley and Michael Jackson’s ex-wife, posted on her MySpace page what she considered her “biggest failure to date”: Presley’s inability to “save Michael Jackson” fourteen years ago:

“I became very ill and emotionally/ spiritually exhausted in my quest to save him from certain self-destructive behavior and from the awful vampires and leeches he would always manage to magnetize around him. I was in over my head while trying. I had my children to care for, I had to make a decision. The hardest decision I have ever had to make, which was to walk away and let his fate have him, even though I desperately loved him and tried to stop or reverse it somehow. After the Divorce, I spent a few years obsessing about him and what I could have done different, in regret. Then I spent some angry years at the whole situation. At some point, I truly became Indifferent, until now. As I sit here overwhelmed with sadness, reflection and confusion at what was my biggest failure to date, watching on the news almost play by play The exact Scenario I saw happen on August 16th, 1977 happening again right now with Michael (A sight I never wanted to see again) just as he predicted, I am truly, truly gutted.”

On August 16, 1977, at 1:30 pm, girlfriend Ginger Alden discovered Presley’s lifeless body on the floor of his Graceland bathroom. Alden alerted Presley associates Joe Esposito and Al Strada who arrived then called the fire department. Presley’s father Vernon and Lisa Marie, 9, “see” Presley in the bathroom then Lisa Marie was “quickly removed from the scene”.

Michael Jackson and Lisa Marie Presley married in May, 1994, three months after Jackson appeared on the Jackson Family Honors NBC special taped in Vegas. In her MySpace note, Presley stated that the marriage “wasn’t a sham”-a rumor that swirled around the couple, who divorced 20 months later. Presley stated that she believed Jackson “loved her”, as much as Jackson “could love anyone”, and that Presley “loved him very much”.

In an August 17, 1977 article by the Las Vegas Sun the stunning news that Elvis Presley had died at age 42 was reported. Mentioned in the article, Dr. Elias Ghanem:

“Elvis Presley collapsed and died at his home in Memphis, Tenn. Tuesday and the tragedy sent a rippling shock through Las Vegas where he made his show business comeback and attained a popularity peak from which he never descended.” Doctors at Baptist Hospital in Memphis, where the dead entertainer was initially taken, issued a statement in the late afternoon which said he died of an “erratic heartbeat.”

………..

“Presley apparently collapsed in a bathroom of his Graceland Mansion in Memphis and was found face down on the floor by his road manager, Joe Esposito, at 3:3 p.m. Memphis time. However, Shelby county Medical Examiner Dr. Jerry Francisco said Presley may have been dead more than five hours before he was found. Francisco told reporters after an autopsy Presley died of “cardiac arrythmia,” which he described as a severely irregular heartbeat. he said it was brought about by “undetermined causes.” Both Francisco and Dr. George Nichopoulos, Presley’s physician in Memphis, emphasized there was “no evidence of any illegal drug use.”

…………..

“Dr. Elias Ghanem, Presley’s Las Vegas physician who was also a personal friend, expressed extreme surprise when told of the entertainer’s death from heart failure. “Why, he was in perfect health,” Ghanem said in news interviews. “I personally gave him a physical examination for insurance reasons only recently. I can’t understand this,” he exclaimed.”

More on Ghanem:

“Ghanem cancelled all late afternoon appointments at his office on Joe W. Brown Drive in the shadow of the Hilton Hotel and flew to Memphis for a firsthand review of events. The Las Vegas doctor last year was a recipient of Presley’s well known generosity. After treating the entertainer for pneumonia, Ghanem was gifted with a $42,000 Stutz racing car and a $16,000 Mercedes sedan. Ghanem’s claim that Presley’s health was good contradicted other reports which alleged fame and wealth had taken its physical toll long before the singing idol’s death Tuesday at the age of 42.”

On August 16, 2007, reporter Scott Conroy “looked back 30 years” to Elvis Presley’s death and funeral. Conroy recalled “vivid” memories of the thousands who lined Elvis Presley Boulevard in Memphis outside Graceland, gathered together in “genuine grief” and “disbelief” over the unexpected death of Elvis Presley at age 42.

Conroy related that many had stories of how Presley had touched their lives and that Conroy had been “amazed” at the amount of people who told him how generous Presley was. Conroy also related that, to reporters, the “big part of the story” was Presley’s cause of death. Conroy interviewed the sheriff of Shelby County who reiterated that Presley had died of died of cardiac arrhythmia — irregular heartbeat. The sheriff was also “emphatic” that “drug abuse was not a factor”. Conroy wrote that “to this day he smiled at rumors that Elvis had been spotted at a Burger King or gas station” as Conroy, as a reporter, was allowed to view Elvis’ body as it lay in state in the foyer of Graceland, Elvis’ home:

“Without fear of contradiction, I can say that Elvis did not leave a handsome corpse. He looked bloated and his complexion was an unnatural grey. But he was well-dressed in a cream-colored suit and wore his medallion with the lightning bolt and the letters “TCB,” for taking care of business — the words that had been his mantra — before we knew what a mantra was.”

In the 1976 People magazine article on Ghanem and Presley, one particular gift caught our eye, a gold medallion with the inscription, TCB
:

“Swabbing talented throats may not win Nobel prizes, but the victims tend to be very grateful. Presley alone has lavished upon Ghanem the $32,000 Stutz, a Mercedes, two watches, a $60,000 diamond ring and a gold medallion inscribed “TCB.” (“Elvis’ people say this stands for ‘Take care of business,’ ” Ghanem chortles. “I say it stands for ‘Take care of broads.’ “

Taking Care of Business

Immediately after the stunning news of Presley’s death, Ghanem was interviewed by a reporter at Vegas’ KSHO. When questioned about excessive drug use and Elvis, Ghanem stated, “Absolutely not. I’ve never known Elvis to take any hard drugs whatsoever. When asked about a “drug overdose”, Ghanem said: “It could be but his father told me it was a heart attack”. When asked about the possibility of suicide, Ghanem said, “He is a very religious man and wouldn’t thing of suicide at all”. Source- When Elvis Died, by Janice Gregory

Another eerie similar parallel, the “cause of death” of both Presley and Jackson and role that drugs played. According to About.com, the official coroner’s report for Presley listed “cardiac arrhythmia” as the cause of Presley’s death yet it was discovered that this was a “ruse” to cover up Presley’s “real cause of death”:

The official coroner’s report lists “cardiac arrhythmia” as the cause of Presley’s death, but this was later admitted to be a ruse entered into by the Presley family along with autopsy physicians Dr. Jerry T. Francisco, Dr. Eric Muirhead and Dr. Noel Florredo to cover up the real cause of death, a cocktail of ten prescribed drugs, taken in doses no doctor would prescribe: The painkillers Morphine and Demerol. Chloropheniramine, an antihistamine. The tranquilizers Placidyl and Vailum. Finally, four drugs were found in “significant” quantities: Codeine, an opiate, Ethinamate, largely prescribed at the time as a “sleeping pill,” Quaaludes, and a barbituate, or depressant, that has never been identified. It has also been rumored that Diazepam, Amytal, Nembutal, Carbrital, Sinutab, Elavil, Avental, and Valmid were found in his system at death.

The site, Fred’s Corner, has an interesting write-up on Presley’s chronic health problems including insomnia, that Presley first began to turn to medication such as placidyl in 1962 to “combat severe insomnia in ever-increasing doses and later took Dexedrine to counter the sleeping pills’ after-effect. That Presley felt that since he was being supplied drugs by a doctor, he wasn’t the “common everyday junkie getting something off the street. He… thought that as far as medications and drugs went, there was something for everything.” While Presley wasn’t a “common everyday junkie”, investigations found where Presley’s physician, Dr. Nichopoulos, prescribed “more than 10,000 doses” of drugs in the “first eight months of 1977 alone”. Sixteen days into the eighth month of 1977, Presley was dead from what was later termed, “Combined Drug Intoxication”:

According to Guralnick: “[D]rug use was heavily implicated… no one ruled out the possibility of anaphylactic shock brought on by the codeine pills…to which he was known to have had a mild allergy.” In two lab reports filed two months later, each indicated “a strong belief that the primary cause of death was Polypharmacy,” with one report “indicating the detection of fourteen drugs in Elvis’ system, ten in significant quantity.” It appears he died of Combined Drug Intoxication.

According to an article at Liveleak.com, Presley’s Doctor, Dr. Nichopoulos, “Dr. Nick”, took measures to try to control Presley’s intake of drugs, going as far to make placebos to give to Presley in lieu of the real thing and would “suck” the liquid from capsules then refill them saline solution. During one “raid” on Presley’s bedroom Dr. Nick and Presley’s road manager Joe Espisito discovered a large cache of drugs:

One time when he was in the hospital, Dr. Nick and Elvis’s road manager, Joe Esposito, raided Elvis’s bedroom at Graceland: they found three giant pharmacy-sized jars, each containing 1,000 high-dose Seconal (a barbiturate), Dexedrine (an amphetamine) and Placidyl (a tranquilizer). There were even vials of pills hidden in the seams of the curtains.

Dr. Nick claimed that if he turned Presley’s request for drugs down, Presley would fly off to Vegas or other cities, stay a few days, then return with what he wanted. An interesting read, the Liveleak article gives far more details into Elvis Presley’s drug use.

Three years after Elvis’ death, Dr. Nick was indicted on 14 counts of “over-prescribing drugs” to Elvis, singer Jerry Lee Lewis, and 12 other patients. According to Wikipedia, the district attorney “ruled out murder charges” relating to Elvis’ death. Dr. Nick was acquitted on all counts. In the same year, the Tennessee Board of Medical Examiners imposed a three months suspension and three years probation, concluding that Nick was guilty of “over-prescribing medication” but acted in the “best interests” of his patients.

“This was a person who was not on drugs. This was a person who was seeking help, desperately, to get some sleep, to get some rest.” Cherilyn Lee on Michael Jackson and Jackson’s propofol use

On July 3, FOX News reported:

“The powerful sedative Propofol — also known as Diprivan — was among several narcotics found in Michael Jackson’s rented suburban Los Angeles mansion, a law enforcement source tells FOXNews.com. Given intravenously, Propofol is used as part of inducing general anesthesia in the operating room, and for heavy sedation of patients who are intubated in the intensive care unit.”

FOX News reported that nurse Cherilyn Lee, who “worked” for Jackson, claimed she was contacted by a “member of Jackson’s staff” just “four days before his death”:

“Cherilyn Lee, a nurse who worked for Jackson, claims the pop star begged her for the drug, and that just four days before his death, a member of Jackson’s staff called and said “‘Michael needs to see you right away.” She says she heard Michael in the background saying, “One side of my body is hot, it’s hot, and one side of my body is cold. It’s very cold.” Lee’s description of Jackson’s condition mirrors a 2007 FDA alert to healthcare professionals detailing “several clusters of patients who have experienced chills, fever, and body aches shortly after receiving propofol for sedation or general anesthesia.”

According to court documents, Jackson’s personal physician, Dr. Conrad Murray, had been “treating” Jackson’s insomnia “every night” with 50 mg. of propofol for a period of six weeks prior to his death. According to the documents, Murray allegedly began to try to “wean” Jackson off the propofol “two days” before Jackson’s death.

On August 28, the Los Angeles Coroner’s Office released a statement ruling Michael Jackson’s death a homicide:

The Los Angeles County coroner has ruled that Michael Jackson’s death was a homicide involving a combination of drugs. “The drugs propofol and lorazepam were found to be the primary drugs responsible for Mr. Jackson’s death,” said a news release issued Friday by the coroner. “Other drugs detected were: midazolam, diazepam, lidocaine and ephedrine.” The release said Jackson died from “acute propofol intoxication,” but said “other conditions contributing to death: benzodiazepine effect.”

Lorazepam, midazolam and diazepam are benzodiazepines.

While Elvis’ personal physician’s Dr. “Nick” was later charged with “over-prescribing” medication to Elvis, then acquitted by a jury, Michael Jackson’s personal physician, Dr. Conrad Murray, has yet to be charged with a crime relating to Jackson’s death.

Both Dr. Murray and Dr. Ghanem were residents of Las Vegas’ Red Rock Country Club community, while Ghanem’s residence “overlooked” Murray’s. It was upstairs in an addition to Dr. Ghanem’s home, specially built for patients, that Dr. Ghanem administered his “sleep diet” to Elvis Presley-a diet of drug sedation that allegedly lasted for up to “three weeks”. It was in an upstairs bedroom of Michael Jackson’s rented home in Los Angeles where Murray allegedly administered propofol in combination with two powerful sedatives in order to “treat” symptoms of Jackson’s insomnia.

Fortunately for Presley and Ghanem, the only alleged side-effect of the “Sleep Diet” was Presley’s unintended weight gain. As for Dr. Murray, to date, Jackson’s personal physician hasn’t been charged with any crime connected to Jackson’s death. Even so, on July 28, Reuters reported authorities had searched Murray’s Las Vegas residence and office. On August 11, the Hollywood Scoop reported DEA, LAPD, and the Las Vegas PD had searched a Las Vegas pharmacy, Applied Pharmacy Services. According to the article, “Federal agents are now looking into Jackson’s possible interactions with at least six other doctors.”

On October 4, Examiner.com reported that a report had found Dr. Murray had propofol shipped from Applied Pharmacy Services to the “home he shared with his girlfriend in Santa Monica”.

On September 25, Radar Online reported Murray’s girlfriend Nicole Alvarez had testified for three hours before a Los Angeles grand jury on Thursday, September 24.

On August 24, the New York Daily News reported Alvarez was Murray’s “ex-stripper girlfriend” who had Murray’s “love child”, and whom the married Murray had “stashed” in a “love nest beachfront apartment” not far from Jackson’s home.

It was in Las Vegas in 2008 that Jackson purportedly met Dr. Conrad Murray when Murray allegedly treated one of Jackson’s children for an unknown ailment. In 2008, Jackson and his children were residing in Vegas.
