Michael Jackson's Son Will Not Be Witness at Prelim

1/3/2011 9:27 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The prosecutor in the Michael Jackson manslaughter preliminary hearing -- which begins tomorrow -- will not call Michael's eldest son, Prince Michael, to testify about what he saw the day his dad died ... sources tell TMZ.

Dr. Conrad Murray has said after administering CPR he ran downstairs and asked the chef to send up Prince Michael, who saw his dad's lifeless body lying in the bed.

In fact, we're told no one from MJ's family will be called to the stand during the prelim.

As TMZ first reported, prosecutors plan to call 30 witnesses during the 2-week prelim ... many of whom will be medical professionals offering opinions about the standard of care administered by Dr. Murray.

There will be no "star witness" in the prelim.  Sources tell us the various witnesses will form building blocks, making the case that Dr. Murray acted recklessly by administering Propofol and other drugs to Jackson the day he died.

MJ is the Greatest of all    

The kid looks exactly like MJ to me! Always has! Not sure what some other dumb blind fools are seeing! Go look at photo's of MJ when he was a child and compare them to PJ! PJ is just a lighter version of young MJ!

-RIP KING MJ-

I'm trying not to be disrespectful as well, but really? And your proof of this is what? More likely MJ was broke because he was surrounded by shady people who kept him drugged because it was easier to steal money from him.

There is something wrong with (Dr.) Murray's mental state if he is frantically asking for the little son of MJ to come upstairs to see his father's lifeless body. A well behaved licenced doctor (in a normal state of mind) would have explained to the family downstairs that their father has passed. This guy is really sick.

Seriously, there are some real ignorant people commenting here, 1st of all, what business is it of yours if these children have Micheal's DNA or not, he raised them from infancy and is their father. Would you be so rude to go to someone's home and if the children did not look like their parents, question if these are really their children? Well, probably some of you idiots would, but you do get my point. Why do you feel it is OK to question and make disrespectful remarks about Michael and his children. Are you also going to question whether Quincy Jones daughter, Rashida, is really his daughter because she does not have her fathers color, or Mariah Carey, is her father REALLY not her father. RADICALRED, CHRISTINE, and (OHWELL, you are beyond ignorant, you seriously need therapy)so ignorant you sound and shamelessly are proud to post your ignorance on the web. Try reading a real book or news magazine instead of tabloids and comics, grow up and try to become a real human with some pride and dignity.

Once again everyone getting riled up over a dead alledged child molesting junkie ugly white woman looking freak. He is dead move on. Why do you care how he died? Is knowing how he died or who was responsible going to make your life any better? Its not like you knew him personally. You wouldnt give this a second thought if this was anyone but MJ so who cares? Once less pedo in the world.
-----------
exactlly if this was the pedo next door the people praising MJ would be calling him s*** telling him to rot..but since its MJ its ok to be a pedo

Why are people making this article about MJ's kids?

Hello people......there was a death here of a man who happened to have a drug issue but was mishandled by his physician.

With all the pressure MJ was under to perform (at his level of self imposed perfection) in an attempt to pull himself out of debt, it is no wonder he sought a doctor to help with his anxiety and restless nights. Remember this man was at the pinnacle of his career when he got ripped apart by the media and the media's followers.

Imagine trying to regain your momentum after 12 years off stage and suffering the most humiliating of all allegations(child molestation). Just try for one moment to think about the pressure you would feel having to perform in front of millions of doubters and haters who would be inspecting you under the microscope to see if your face caved in while on stage or if you dropped dead or missed notes/dance steps while performing (think Whitney Houston's last tour) or God forbid touched a fan that happened to be a child.

Only in America do we raise a celebrity to a deity and godlike status at levels unheard of and then tear them down the mere moment they appear untouchable.

Dr. Conrad Murray needs to face justice and justice equals jail for improperly administering lethal amounts of a drug under unsupervised conditions. It does not matter one iota whether MJ may have had a drug issue or not and it most certainly does not matter whether his children resemble him or not.

To Kevin,

To answer your question, I care, and so do millions of others, how many give a damn about you. Now, I have a question for you. Why do you troll every web site that carries Michael Jackson news, you and OHWELL are obsessed with Michael, but not in a good way like us fans are, you both come across as demented, I think you may even be one and the same person, scary!

i can't believe anyone would say this young man looks like arnie klein. i totally saw MJ when i glanced at that pic. also, for those saying Michael killed himself - if he did, why couldn't murray save him since the "bathroom" trip only took 2 minutes? and, how do you explain the hours elapsed from the time murray injected Michael and the time the 911 call was made? i've read all the articles, but i've never seen the nay-sayers explain any of this.

i wish murray would just be a man and tell what happened and face the consequences, whatever that may be.

You people ranting about how this kid looks like MJ need to look at Michael's REAL pictures -- the ones taken when he was dark-skinned, afro-haired and had a flat nose. You're looking at pics of him after the surgery nightmares started and thinking that's the real thing. YOU need to get real.

Dr. Murray did what MJ paid him to do. He sedated MJ at MJ's request. He should have known better, but money talks and MJ was paying him a lot. He deserves to lose his license, but I don't believe he should be held solely responsible for the junkie's death.

The more I read of this Dr. Murray, the more convinced I am that as for him being a doctor his actions to everything seemed very odd. Nothing makes any sense of any of the reports or media to me. I mean Doctor's usually dont freak out like he was and he as a doctors knows giving CPR you do it on flat surface. I know I taught it. All of this is very uncertain. I expect both sides of the legal battles will pull out both barrels but I still say Murray's actions were neglegent and harmful. RIP MJ
