Conrad extended the invitation Tuesday night in a statement released to CNN through his lawyers, Valerie Wass and Michael Flanagan.
“I’ve been told that she has a desire to speak with me before she departs this life,” Conrad said. “Seeing that she is up in age and in questionable health, and the fact that she is the mother of a very dear departed friend, it would give me great pleasure to sit with her one on one and answer any questions she might have.”
Conrad was sentenced to four years in prison last November after a jury convicted him of involuntary manslaughter in Michael’s June 25, 2009, death.
“It would put her at peace,” Conrad said. “I would do that truly out of concern for her and altruistic love and concern for others. I want to see her. I do not want Mrs. Jackson to suffer. She remains as dear to me as my own mother, unbeknownst to her.”
He added, “Although I am not permitted to see the news in jail, there are times when intermittent snippets are seen before a channel change occurs. I recently saw Katherine Jackson in one of those snippets. She appeared to be extremely sad. I also heard she is having a difficult time.”
A representative for Katherine said he would present the offer to her, but he doubted she would accept.
