Michael Jackson’s Pianist — Conrad Murray Screwed Me Out of ‘This Is It’ Riches

Michael Jackson’s pianist could have been huge — hauling in nearly half a million bucks — if Conrad Murray didn’t kill MJ … so now he’s threatening to sue Murray for all the money he lost.

Morris Pleasure was in the band for the “This Is It” tour, and last fall — while Conrad was still in jail — he fired off a letter accusing the doctor of robbing him out of what would have been his “highest-paying job.”

Pleasure’s no stiff — he’s performed with Earth, Wind & Fire, Christina Aguilera, Janet Jackson, and Natalie Cole, Roberta Flack and many more — but the MJ gig would have been his pinnacle of his career.

We’re told Mo P stood to make about $400,000 over 2 years of touring with Michael.

By law, Murray had 90 days to work out a settlement — but the piano man’s attorney tells us they’ve heard nothing … so the next step will likely be a lawsuit for the lost wages.
