He claims Murray cost him money...
TMZ reports that Michael Jackson's pianist Morris Pleasure is threatening to sue Conrad Murray for the money he lost after Michael Jackon's death.
Murray was convicted of killing Jackson with a lethal overdose of the anesthetic propofol. Pleasure sent him a letter last fall while Murray was in jail, accusing him of taking money from him.
He was in the band for the "This Is It" tour, which he says would have been his "highest-paying job." Pleasure has previously performed with Earth, Wind & Fire, Christina Aguilera, Janet Jackson, Natalie Cole, Roberta Flack and more. He was set to make around $400,000 from touring with Jackson for two years.
Murray had 90 days to work out a settlement but nothing has happened, so a lawsuit is likely.
