Michael Jackson and Dr. Conrad Murray tried to recruit an anesthesiologist to join them on his comeback tour, according to testimony in the AEG Live wrongful death trial.
Murray arranged the meeting in March 2009 in which Jackson asked Dr. David Adams to travel with him to London, Adams testified.
Adams said that after he offered to take the job for $100,000 a month guaranteed for three years, Murray stopped communicating with him.
“I texted basically, you know, ‘what’s going on, I’m on board,” Adams said. “And no response.”
Just weeks later Murray accepted an offer from an AEG Live executive to be Jackson’s personal physician on his “This Is It” tour for $150,000 a month.
