The 60-year-old former cardiologist was sentenced to four years in prison for his in Michael Jackson's death, but got released two years early because he was given an additional day of credit for each day he served.
In spite of the fact that his licenses have been suspended in California, Nevada and Texas, amazingly enough, now that he’s a free man, Murray hopes to practice medicine again. His attorney told reporters that they hope to have Murrays licenses reinstated now that he’s been released.
By the way TMZ’s reporting that Murray is looking to make some money from his experience. Find out how below with Tha Wire.
What’s more, another blow to the Jackson family is the fact that Quincy Jones has filed a $10 million lawsuit against Sony Records and Michael Jackson Productions for unpaid royalties. The legendary musician/producer worked closely with Jackson on many of his best-known releases including Bad, Off the Wall and the iconic Thriller album.
That being said, Jones claims Sony and MJJ used music from all three releases, to which he owns rights, and went around paying him by remixing compositions for Jackson-related entertainment projects like This is It, the 25th Anniversary edition of Bad, and Cirque de Soleil stage shows.
As previously reported Michael's estate leads Forbes' 2013 "Top-Earning Dead Celebrities" list, raking in $160 million between June 2012-July 2013 and it looks like Q wants his cut.
In other news, in an update on the Chris Brown incident this past weekend, the singer spent 36 hours in a D.C. prison for a fight, was released without bail and charged with a misdemeanor instead of a felony on Monday afternoon. He and his bodyguard, Christopher Hollosy, were arrested on Sunday morning after getting in a “physical altercation” in front of the W Hotel in D.C. Chris is being accused of hitting a man following a party at the hotel.
The two men appeared in front of a full court, where the singer was ordered to report to his probation officer within the next two days and stay at least 100 yards away from the man he hit. Both men are scheduled to appear in court again and on that, listen to Tha Wire below.
After the court hearing Breezy’s attorney released the following statement.
“Christopher Brown committed no crime. We understand that his security acted to protect Mr. Brown and his property, as he is authorized to do under District of Columbia law. We are confident that Mr. Brown will be exonerated of any wrongdoing.”
Finally, 50 Cent was sentenced to three years probation and 30 days of community service this past raping up the domestic violence charges the rapper/actor was facing for trashing his girlfriend Daphne Joys apartment over the summer.

Lastly, rapper Guerilla Black was sentenced to more than nine years in prison for credit card fraud last Friday (Oct. 25), according to KarenCivil.com. Black, Who’s real name is Charles Tony Williamson, reportedly made $20,000 a month from the international scheme and was originally facing up to 30 years. So I’d say he got off easy. In the meantime, he got some additional time once he’s released.
