Michael Jackson’s former doctor and former brother-in-law are reportedly on the same cell block in a Los Angeles county jail.
The King of Pop’s personal physician, Conrad Murray, is said to be neighbors with singer James DeBarge at Los Angeles County Men’s Jail. DeBarge was famously married to Janet Jackson for a year in the 1980s.
Murray has been behind bars since he was convicted of involuntary manslaughter last year for administering the fatal dose of propofol that killed Jackson in 2009.
TMZ is reporting that DeBarge is currently jailed on assault and drug charges and is being housed in the Administrative Segregation along with Murray.
DeBarge’s lawyer, Spencer Vodnoy, tells the website his client is “really upset” by the coincidence as he was previously close to the King of Pop.
