In an interview with ABC’s Robin Roberts, Janet Jackson says she believes Dr. Conrad Murray was responsible for her brother’s death. Murray worked as Michael Jackson‘s personal physician and has admitted to giving propofol to the late pop icon, but denies responsibility for his death. Jackson died from acute propofol intoxication, according to the L. A. Coroner’s Office.
“He was the one that was administering,” Janet Jackson said of Dr. Conrad Murray. “I think he is responsible.” The interview with ABC is the first time Janet Jackson has spoken out publicly at length about the death of her brother.
“It’s been a tough year,” Jackson told Robin Roberts. “You have your days where it’s just really, it’s hard to believe. And a day doesn’t go by that I don’t think of him.” Jackson said her and the rest of the family were in shock when they heard the news Michael Jackson had died.
“It just didn’t ring true to me. It felt like a dream,” Jackson said. “It’s still so difficult for me to believe. It’s, you know, you have to accept what is. But it’s hard.”
Janet Jackson’s interview will air on ABC on Wednesday, Nov. 18.
