London, Jul 17 (ANI): In an explosive tell-all, the man blamed for Michael Jackson's death has portrayed the King of Pop as a pedophile.

In the book 'This Is It,' Dr Conrad Murray, who was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter of the star and has served half of his four year sentence, claimed that the singer became infatuated with his British god-daughter when she was just five and wanted to marry her when she turned 12.

According to him, the second choice of the 'Thriller' hit-maker, who died of a prescription drug overdose aged 50 in 2009, was Emma Watson, whom he fell in love with when she was 11, according to The Mirror.

Murray said Jackson, who became infatuated with Watson after seeing her in the 'Harry Potter' flicks, had a cardboard cutout of her at his LA home.

Insisting that the money was not his motivation for writing the book, the doctor claimed that the singer had urged him to do so.

He said, "This is the story of who Michael Jackson was. He wanted me to tell this story - now I am fulfilling his wish."

On being asked whether Jackson was a danger to children, Murray, who was the star's private physician for more than three years, said "You must read the book and make those decisions for yourself."

Murray also said Jackson considered him family and maintains he is innocent of the crime he was jailed for. (ANI)
