Michael Jackson’s physician Dr. Conrad Murphy never prescribed or gave the singer the drug Demerol, attorney Edward Chernoff told the Associated Press, denying reports that said the doctor may have given Jackson the drug and possibly contributed to his death.
Jackson still had a faint pulse when the doctor reached him in bed, the attorney said, but he wasn’t breathing.
Meanwhile, Jackson’s ex-wife Debbie Rowe, the mother of his two oldest children, Prince and Paris, told News of the World that she was impregnated with sperm from an anonymous donor and not Jackson, Gawker says. “I was just the vessel. It wasn’t Michael’s sperm,” Rowe told the British tabloid. While Jackson was alive, Rowe was legally bound to keep silent about the children.
