The 10 most shocking Murray trial moments

The 10 most shocking Murray trial moments

#10: Dr. Conrad Murray's complicated love life

The defense portrayed Murray as quite the ladies' man when parading his girlfriends on the stand. Nicole Alvarez is an actress who lives with Murray and is the mother of his most recent child. She testified that Murray shipped propofol to her address. She also told the court she was "speechless" when she first met Michael Jackson. And who could forget when she referred to herself as her "instrument?"

#9: Former patient smooches Murray in the courtroom

The defense called several of Murray's former patients to the stand in an attempt to paint a picture of the doctor as a caring and loving man. One of the patients, who called Murray his "best friend," went to the defense table after his testimony and kissed Murray on the head.

#8: Defense drops its main theory in the middle of the case

Murray's lawyers were originally arguing that Jackson gave himself a fatal dose of propofol by swallowing the anesthetic. But they ditched this theory in the middle of the trial, saying that Jackson actually injected the propofol into a catheter in his leg.

#7: MJ's demands: Horses and a Guinness world record

The CEO of AEG gave us a behind-the-scenes look at the "This is It" tour. Randy Phillips says Jackson originally agreed to do 31 shows (in an effort to out-perform singer Prince) and that it was AEG who asked for more. Jackson agreed, but under two conditions: that he be given an estate outside of London for his family (with 16+ acres, horses and a running stream) and that a representative from Guinness World Records be on hand for the 50th show, because he planned to break records.

#6: Photos of Michael Jackson's deathbed

Jurors took a virtual walk through Jackson's home. Jackson's head of security, Faheem Muhammad, described the chaos at the home the day the pop star died. Jurors also looked at pictures of the scene of Jackson's death.

#5: Expert says there's only ONE way MJ died

The prosecution's expert anesthesiologist methodically ruled out several scenarios for the singer's death, leaving only one: Jackson was hooked up to a propofol drip, which was set up by Murray. The defense says no drip was set up and that Jackson administered the fatal dose of propofol to himself while Murray was out of the room.

#4: Slurred audio of MJ played in court

We've never heard the King of Pop like this before. The shocking recording was made by Murray on his iPhone while speaking with Jackson about his upcoming "This Is It" concert series. Jackson sounded groggy when talking about the tour, and how he wanted to create a children's hospital. The tape concludes with Murray asking Jackson if he is okay and the pop star replying, "I am asleep."

#3: "Don't let them see their dad like this"

We heard about how Jackson's kids found out about their father's death. Jackson's director of logistics testified about rushing to Jackson's bedroom, with Jackson's kids right behind him. He told the court, "Paris screamed out 'Daddy!'" and was crying when she saw her father lying motionless on his bed. Jackson's personal chef said the children and household staff came together in the mansion's foyer and hugged, held hands and prayed.

#2: MJ's medical secrets revealed: Botox, painkillers and tattoos

According to Jackson's autopsy report, the King of Pop had several tattoos on his body, including dark markings on his scalp and both eyebrows, and pink tattoos on his lips. We also got a peek inside Jackson’s dermatology records (which were created under the alias "Omar Arnold"). The defense's addiction medicine specialist Dr. Robert Waldman said Jackson was receiving "large" and "unnecessary" doses of the powerful painkiller Demerol, along with injections of Restylane and Botox. Some of the Botox was injected into his groin and armpits to reduce "excessive perspiration." Jackson also received injections below his right eye, in his cheekbone, and in his chin and nose.

#1: Autopsy photo shocks the courtroom

It's the one moment from this trial that we won't soon forget: A picture of a deceased, naked Michael Jackson displayed for the court. The picture was taken as part of Jackson's autopsy report. One Jackson fan left the courtroom in tears when the picture was displayed.

I have to admit, I never thought I'd be Googling this:  Botox Sweating

I had to really look around for this paragraph.  Seems they don't really want people to know exactly what's in it:

"Botox is made from human plasma (part of the blood) which may contain viruses and other infectious agents. Donated plasma is tested and treated to reduce the risk of it containing infectious agents, but there is still a small possibility it could transmit disease. Talk with your doctor about the risks and benefits of using this medication."

I was under the impression it was a bovine product.  Perhaps that's where it started, but now refined.
All I know is,  it's not going in my body....eekk!
