Michael Jackson's Son Will Not Be Witness at Prelim

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.

For these reasons alone Dr,Murrary is quilty, he is the one who gave these drugs to Mr. Michael Jackson. He is responsible for these actions alone. Not to mention not calling 911 right away.


"Maybe that small amount of propofol was enough to harm him when taken with other drugs," says John Dombrowsi, MD, a Washington, D.C., anesthesiologist and member of the board of directors of the American Society of Anesthesiologists, who reviewed the statement today for WebMD.

Although the official statement does not say how the drugs contributed to Jackson's death, Dombrowski and other experts say that the propofol, with its sedating properties, plus the sedative properties of the multiple other drugs detected, could result in respiratory arrest.

he is a liar just like Wacko Jacko. He knows he is a white boy and that Arnold is his real daddy but he is pretending to be Jacko's kid. I would be embarrassed to be part of that family. Those kids are pathetic.

don't think they should put him on the stand because he cannot tell the truth.

HA, I noticed that too. Also, "Dr. Conrad Murray has said after administering CPR", HAS SAID, it's just 'said' not has said. TMZ internals are so damn stupid. They all need to go back to school and get their GED or somethin'. What a joke and half the BS they post is just BS........
(so on and so forth)....maybe they could use some the money he gave to charities for further education, etc..
LOSERS!

HA..
katie10......
TMZ use of "has said" is not incorrect.
The "laying" was probably a typo.
TMZ writers would be wise to proof their copy a bit closer.

You must be a tremendously unhappy person katie10.

I like Prince a lot. I like what I've seen of him so far in photos (he gets more handsome with each passing day), and especially in person (funeral, Oprah show). He displays the same dignified, noble mien as his father, despite his young age. You can really see Michael's spirit in all three of those children. That boy is going to do something meaningful with his life someday. He seems very mature for his age. I hope that he takes what will surely be a huge inheritance from his father and uses it to make the world a better place, which is what I think his father would have wanted. I believe that Prince will be a responsible steward of such largesse. If he gets a good academic education, in addition to any creative pursuits, he will be an unstoppable force for good in this world.

Debbie Rowe stated that donor sperm was used to conceive the two children she bore for Michael. She would know.It's her body. She would have to give legal consent. Google it. She has no reason to lie. Why does it matter anyway? Couples engage surrogates to bear children all the time. If the children want to have their DNA tested in the future, it's their choice. They had a father who loved them very much and now he's gone. Leave them alone.
