So Awkward! El DeBarge Mad Dr. Conrad Murray Is His Jailmate?


So Awkward! El DeBarge Mad Dr. Conrad Murray Is His Jailmate?

Crooner El Debarge and Dr. Conrad Murray are just a few feet away from each other at L.A. County Men's jail. And why is this a problem? According to TMZ, Debarge, whose brother James was once briefly married to Janet Jackson, isn't reportedly happy about Murray's location, because he considered Michael Jackson a brother.

DeBarge, once a “pretty ,” was the lead singer for the successful five-family '80s group DeBarge.  After James and Janet eloped in 1984, they were married less than a year. At the time, all fingers pointed to Jackson patriarch Joe the one who put the kabosh on the relationship

Although El and his siblings had a string of successful R&B and pop hits, drugs eventually split the successful family unit up.  Over the years, El has been arrested several times and has battled drug addiction. He was most recently arrested yet again for assault a deadly weapon and drug charges.

Murray, who was Michael's personal physician, was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter last November in the death of the pop icon and is expected to serve about two years of his four-year sentence.  The cardiologist had been giving Jackson nightly doses of propofol to help him sleep as he prepared for a series of comeback concerts. Propofol is supposed to be used in hospital settings and has never been approved for sleep treatments, yet Murray acknowledged giving it to Jackson then leaving the room on the day the singer died.

Murray is serving out his sentence in a county jail rather than a state prison. Under a recent California policy, those convicted of certain non-violent crimes, including involuntary manslaughter, are not required to serve their time in prison.

Ironically, now the two men have to catch glimpses of each other in a jail that holds approximately 4,000 inmates.  Reportedly, both DeBarge and Murray have been placed in Administrative Segregation, the place where famous inmates are housed to keep them from associating with the general prison population.

El, once referred to as the “second coming of Michael” and who was lovingly given the name of “Elf” by his superstar in-law, is, according to lawyer Spencer Vodnoy, ”really upset” he's so close to Murray.
