Report: Conrad Murray's "Flat Broke" and Writing Tell-All About Michael Jackson's Last Days

David McNew-Pool/Getty ImagesSentenced to four years in jail in the death of Michael Jackson, Dr. Conrad Murray is hoping he'll win big writing a book about the pop star's final days, according to the website RadarOnline

RadarOnline quotes a source as saying that "Murray contends that Michael's kids viewed him as a family member and loved him," but it's not love but finances that are motivating MJ's former physician.  "This is all about money for Murray though because he is absolutely flat broke and desperately needs the cash.  He feels that the book could help rehab his image and help him to get his medical license back," the source says.

In preparation, the source tells RadarOnline, "Dr. Murray spends most of his days writing what he is telling friends will be a tell-all book about what really happened in the final days of Michael Jackson's life."  The source goes on to explain "Conrad says that Michael confided his inner-most secrets about his true feelings about his family, the child molestation trial and his three children," the website reports.

As for his feelings about the conviction, the source tells RadarOnline, "Conrad is extremely arrogant and doesn't accept any responsibility for the death of Michael Jackson.  He truly believes he has done nothing wrong."  With Murray's current appeal of the conviction pending, the insider speculates, "Murray is confident that it will be successful, even though legal experts say that it's very unlikely that he will get a new trial," the website reports.

Despite Conrad's interest to share, it's not looking good for the book.  According to RadarOnline, recent inquiries to publishers have not yet yielded any takers.
