A Metro UK report has shown that Dr Conrad Murray, the man jailed for the death of Michael Jackson in 2009, has made shocking claims about the late Joe Jackson.
He alleged that Joe ‘chemically castrated’ Michael as a teenager to cure his acne and to keep his voice high pitched.
‘The cruelty expressed by Michael that he experienced at the hand of his father,’ the 65-year-old said.
‘The fact that he was chemically castrated to maintain his high-pitched voice is beyond words.’
There have been theories that Michael was injected with hormones to delay puberty.
He continued: ‘I knew and cared for Michael very well and he told me of the many sufferings at the hands of his father he encountered, It was dreadful, beyond imagination and words.’
Closing the video, Conrad told the camera: ‘It is said that only the good die young … I hope Joe Jackson finds redemption in hell.’
After MJ’s death in 2009, Dr Conrad Murray was convicted of involuntary manslaughter and served two years behind bars. At the time of Michael Jackson’s death, the singer was said to have had a fractious relationship with his dad, even writing Joe out of his will.
Joe died just two weeks ago on 27 June following a battle with pancreatic cancer.
His family paid tribute following his death, writing in a statement: ‘We want to thank you all for the support you have shown us as we grieve for the patriarch of our family. We mourn the loss of our father and celebrate the life of a man who sacrificed so much to give us the life and success we have today. Thank you for respecting our privacy during this time.’
