It seems as if a lot of people want Katherine Jackson’s presence these days. First, it was her grandchildren by Michael Jackson who wanted her to come home after being away ten days.
As if dealing with her family drama weren’t enough, now Katherine Jackson, 82, has been invited by Conrad Murray, the doctor convicted in her son Michael Jackson’s death, to visit him in jail according to ABC news.
Murray is serving four years in a Los Angeles County jail for involuntary manslaughter in Jackson’s death.
Murray’s invitation came via a statement released to CNN through his lawyers, Valerie Weiss and Michael Flanagan.
Murray said he extended the invitation for a special reason. He wanted to “answer any questions she might have.” He said:
“I’ve been told that she has a desire to speak with me before she departs this life. “Seeing that she is up in age and in questionable health, and the fact that she is the mother of a very dear departed friend, it would give me great pleasure to sit with her one on one and answer any questions she might have.”
In his statement, Murray also said, “It would put her at peace. I would do that truly out of concern for her and altruistic love and concern for others. I want to see her. I do not want Mrs. Jackson to suffer. She remains as dear to me as my own mother, unbeknownst to her.”
Murray said he would put Katherine Jackson’s name on the visitor list. A representative for Katherine Jackson said he would present the offer to her, but he doubted she would accept Murray’s offer.
