Conrad Murray sends 'love' to Paris Jackson
The convicted former physician of Michael Jackson, Dr. Conrad Murray, has recorded an audio "letter" to the King of Pop's daughter Paris following her hospitalization on Wednesday because he cares about her, Murray told CNN in a statement via his attorney.
His lawyer confirmed to CNN that Murray provided TMZ with the taped message, in which Murray told the 15-year-old: "I don't know what you're going through, but I'm sure whatever it is, it must be difficult. ... I don't know if there’s anything I can do to solve your pain, or help you with your problem, but I wanted you to know that I am here for you."
The motivation, Murray's lawyer said, was his love for Jackson's children, which also includes sons Prince, 16, and Blanket, 11.

Lindsay Lohan's dental debacle
Lindsay Lohan’s teeth are causing quite a stink. People reports that the starlet’s smile was looking shabby on a red carpet in Los Angeles on Wednesday, and LiLo’s rep is firing back at media reports, defending his clients’ looks.
"Lindsay is widely recognized as one of the most beautiful women on the planet, and is regularly sought-after by some of the top photographers in the world to appear on covers of magazines around the globe,” Lindsay’s rep Steve Honig commented to CNN regarding the widely distributed (and disturbing) photos.
Honig would also like us to avert our gaze: “There are so many more important issues the media should be focusing on, such as homelessness, lack of funding for public education and relations between America and its allies."
