*Michael Jackson’s youngest brother Randy released a written statement today saying he is on the mend after being hospitalized last week with chest pains. However, he would not specify the nature of his ailment.
“I am feeling much better, invigorated and spiritually strong,” he wrote.
Most of the statement expressed the family’s disappointment with the recent ruling allowing Dr. Conrad Murray to keep his medical license in California.
Murray, Michael’s personal physician, faces an involuntary manslaughter charge in Jackson’s death nearly a year ago. He has pleaded not guilty.
“The recent court proceedings have been difficult for us as a family,” Randy wrote. “However, it is a necessary process that we are well prepared to endure in our fight for justice for Michael.”
The statement went on to express support for the California Attorney General’s office, which sought to suspend Murray’s medical license until his case is decided.
“Despite our strong feelings about the outcome, we have continued respect and faith in Judge Michael Pastor, the Deputy District Attorney David Walgren and our judicial system,” the statement read.
Randy, who was hospitalized the day after last week’s court hearing, also thanked doctors and fans for their support.
