Following the successful conviction of Michael Jackson’s doctor, Conrad Murray, by a Los Angeles court, prosecutors have confirmed that they are intending to bring the pop star’s plastic surgeons to justice for the 'appalling acts' they committed.
Anxious to maintain their fee income base, attorneys have filed suits against a leading nose specialist and are planning to add Michael Jackson’s close friend and fellow victim David Gest to the action. Once they have pursued the rhinoplastician, they have confirmed their intention to prosecute Jackson’s skin consultant, hairdresser and ultimately, his clothing consultants.
‘It’s time for these people to face the music,’ said Deputy District Attorney David Walgren. ‘In many ways, their crimes committed were far worse than Dr Murray’s felonies. Whilst the outcome in his case was terminally fatal, at least poor Michael didn’t have to live with the consequences of his incompetence.’
Jackson suffered for years following after a series of botched operations which dramatically changed his appearance and left him open to public ridicule. Evidence for this can be found throughout his work according to veteran commentator Paul Gambaccini.
‘Many people don’t realise that the entertainer’s album ‘Bad’ was inspired by one of the first things that Michael uttered after the bandages were lifted after one operation. Early titles for the record were ‘Jeez’ and ‘What the hell have the motherfuckers done to my nose?’ but these were felt to be less ironic than the final title.’
‘The feature track ‘Man in the Mirror’ was about the person that poor Michael no longer recognised,’ concluded Gambaccini. ‘Jackson’s plastic surgeons literally changed the face of pop music.’
