Los Angeles — The woman Dr. Conrad Murray phoned when he realized Michael Jackson was dying has broken her silence about the fateful day, revealing the medic “didn’t sound like himself” and was clearly troubled.
Former cocktail waitress Sade Anding, who Murray was pursuing romantically at the time, is set to testify for the prosecution at the doctor’s upcoming trial for involuntary manslaughter. He stands accused of administering the dose of the drug Propofol that killed the King of Pop on 25 June, 2009.
Murray, who denies the charge, told investigators he was talking to someone on his cell phone for five minutes before he noticed Jackson was in serious trouble.
But, in a candid TV interview with breakfast show Good Morning America on Thursday, Anding contradicts the medic’s version of events, claiming he hesitated when she asked him if something was wrong during their phone conversation on the day Jackson died.
Anding says, “He called me out of the blue. He sounded like something was wrong. He didn’t sound like himself to me at all.
