Aw man, this guy is big trouble now…
Michael Jackson’s two eldest children, Prince Michael and Paris, have told their grandmother Katherine they want to testify in the manslaughter trial of the doctor accused of killing the pop superstar with an overdose of a powerful anesthetic, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned.
A Jackson family insider said: “Katherine is resisting the move, because she knows how traumatic it would be for them, but both Prince Michael and Paris have said they want to tell the jury what they saw on the day their father died.”
RadarOnline.com has learned the King of Pop’s sister LaToya has privately declared her support of the children’s stance to take the witness stand against Dr. Conrad Murray.
Murray is charged with involuntary manslaughter in the Thriller singer’s death on June 25, 2009, at age 50.
“Both LaToya and Katherine agree, however, that Blanket should not testify as he is too young,” the source said.
“Prince and Paris are determined to take the stand, though. Ultimately, I don’t believe Katherine will deny them that chance, even though she doesn’t want them to and has told them so. The kids have said they don’t want their father’s legacy to be tarnished by the trial and they believe their evidence will help convict Doctor Murray.
Listen, if these two get on the stand and start telling jurors how they felt the day their father died and the things they saw it’s going to be all bad for ol’ Conrad.
Apparently LaToya Jackson seems to think the same thing.
“LaToya has said it would be good for the children to, ‘Get what is inside them, out of them.’ She feels it is a way for them to release the hurt. Above all though, she believes her brother was murdered and what Prince Michael and Paris could tell the jury, would inevitably help convict the doctor.”
It’s gonna be hella hard for those jurors to look at those sad little faces and not want to throw the book at Murray.
Do you think Paris and Prince Michael should testify or is it unfair to make them relive that painful memory?
