As Paris Jackson recovers in a Los Angeles-area hospital from an apparent suicide attempt, Dr. Conrad Murray, the doctor convicted of killing her pop star father, reached out to the teen in a recorded message offering his support.
“I don’t know what you’re going through but I’m sure whatever it is, it must be difficult. I can tell you’re not doing well and I don’t know if there is anything I can do to solve your pain, but I wanted you to know that I’m here for you,” Murray said in the more than three-minute long message, confirmed to ABC News by Murray’s lawyer.
Murray is currently serving a four-year sentence for administering a fatal dose of the anesthetic propofol to Michael Jackson in June 2009. Jackson’s death has now led to a high-stakes wrongful death suit filed by the family against the concert promoters who sponsored the ill-fated comeback tour “This Is It.”
The disgraced doctor uses the title of a Jackson song, “You Are Not Alone,” in another part of the rambling recording. Murray also says to Paris, “I too love you, as a precious father loves his own child.”
Paris, 15, was taken to a hospital early Wednesday morning after a police radio dispatcher indicated a girl of the same age at the same address as the Jackson family’s Calabasas, Calif., home had “OD’d on 20 Motrin and cut her arm with a kitchen knife.”
“We are told from people connected to the family that she has done this before,” TMZ founder Harvey Levin told ABC News.
The Jackson family said in a statement that Paris is “safe and doing fine.”
Among the family members visiting the 15-year-old in the hospital were grandmother Katherine Jackson, mother Debbie Rowe, brother Prince Michael Jackson and aunt LaToya Jackson, according to People magazine. Former nanny, Grace Rwaramba, also stopped by.
A source told People that Katherine Jackson and her fellow co-guardian, cousin T.J. Jackson, were discussing what to do after Paris Jackson is released.
