Michael Jackson - Michael Jackson 'Iphone' Recording Shocks Courtroom

Michael Jackson's voice filled a Los Angeles courtroom during the first day of Dr Conrad Murray's manslaughter trial on Monday (26th September 2011). An audio clip, recorded on Murray's iPhone, featured the pop superstar speaking about his legacy while slurring his words, report Cbs News.
Jackson's family were visibly shocked by the audio, in which Michael was heard to say, "When people leave this show, I want them to say, I've never seen nothing like this in my life. I've never seen nothing like this. Go. It's amazing, He's the greatest entertainer in the world". Jean Casarez, a correspondent for 'In Session' on TruTV, said the audio stunned the courtroom, saying, "the family was sitting in front of me and there were nine of them altogether.. They started looking at each other, they were concerned. They were shocked. They were stunned. You could tell they didn't know about this tape and they didn't like what they were hearing". Prosecutors claim Jackson was given propofol on a daily basis during the last two months of his life - with Dr Murray ordering hundreds of vials of the powerful drug. However, the defence argue it was Jackson who ultimately killed himself, with attorney Ed Chernoff saying, "Michael Jackson self-administered a dose of propofol that with the lorazapam created a perfect storm in his body that killed him instantly".
Dr Murray became emotional as his lawyers talked of his friendship with the late singer. The jurors are expected to hear testimony from the singer's assistant Michael Amir Williams about the chaos of the day Michael died.
