Michael Jackson's Son Prince

I'll Testify ...

With Strings Attached

Michael Jackson
's eldest son Prince -- an eyewitness to the horrific scene in the bedroom where his father lost his life -- does not want to testify in the Conrad Murray trial, but he's telling family he'll do what needs to be done to get justice for his departed dad.

Sources close to Prince tell TMZ ... the 14-year-old is "nervous" and worried that if he's called to the stand he might get flustered and "mess up." 

We're told if Prince is called by prosecutors ... Katherine will ask her lawyers to request that the entire courtroom be cleared during his testimony.  Judge Michael Pastor almost certainly will prohibit the media from training a camera on Prince, but it's unlikely he'll clear the courtroom.

As we previously reported, Prince is on the prosecution's witness list, since Dr. Murray summoned Prince to the bedroom for help during the emergency.  When Prince arrived, he dissolved into tears.

The trial starts today.  We'll be livestreaming opening statements.

What to testify, man? There was no one there with him but Conrad. WTF. Yet, I still believe, no one should go to jail, for M.J was over, unfortunatelly. See here why.

I read somewhere that Prince wants to testify,now i read the opposite,anyway it's natural that the poor child is nervous,who wouldn't be,if they were in his place,he knows that everyone in the courtroom will be hanging on his words,from prosecutors to the defense and of course the judge.D.A and jurors.

I hope they let him say what he lived and don't confuse him with complicated questions.

TMZ, I really dislike how you make your headlines sound like it's a quote straight from the person's mouth, when it's not...it's dishonest and I wish you'd stop it.

I think if Prince wants to testify his grandmother should let him. It's disgusting what Murray did calling him to the room to see his dead father. The jury won't take kindly to that and Murray's despicable character will be out there for all to see. Can't wait until he's sentenced to the full 4 years. Justice for MJ!

Why is Prince worried about saying the "wrong" thing? All he has to do is tell the truth and he can't be wrong.

The only thing the doctor is guilty of is medical malpractice. He should lose his license and that's it. He wasn't out to kill or harm anyone. He showed very poor judgement and ethics, but not malicious intent.

I'm so sick of hearing about what a good parent Michael was. Drug addicts can't be good parents. They are too self-absorbed,

INSTEAD GREEDY-UNNATURAL MOTHER KATHERINE MADE KNOWN IN THESE DAYS THROUGH "A SOURCE" THAT PRINCE AND PARIS WANTED TO TESTIFY... "THEY WANT TO TESTIFY BUT KATHERINE IS SO RESISTING..." AS USUAL SHE TWISTED EVERYTHING TO MAKE APPEAR HERSELF AS "THE GOOD"...!!! IT SEEMED ME STRANGE THAT THEY WERE SO ANXIOUS TO TESTIFY SINCE THEY ARE SO YOUNG!! REALLY HOPE THAT THE PROSECUTION DOESN'T CALL THEM BECAUSE MURDERER'S TEAM OF LOSERS WILL DO ANYTHING TO EMBARASS THEM AND WILL TRY TO MAKE THEM ADMIT THAT MURDERER IS A ""GOOD DOCTOR"" -- MURDERER IS NOT EVEN A DOCTOR!!! INSTEAD OF CALLING MICHAEL'S CHILDREN PROSECUTORS COULD INCREASE MURDERER'S CHARGE BECAUSE INVOLUNTARY MANSLAUGHTER IS NOT FOR THOSE WHO TRIED TO HIDE THE PROOFS THAT COULD INCRIMINATE THEM AND TRIED TO CREATE THEMSELVES AN ALIBI BY CALLING A KID AS EYEWITNESS ---- OF THEIR INCOMPETENCE, INHUMANITY AND LACK OF ETHICS AND SCRUPLES!!!!! MURDERER DOES DESERVE TO ROT IN JAIL MUCH MORE THAN FOUR MISERABLE YEARS FOR HIS WHOLE MISERABLE LIFE!!!!

Michael Jackson wanted Murray as his 'personal' Dr.

Murray had the script pads.

All of this way before Murray. Murray may have gotten propofol, and what ever happened, anyones guess.

Michael Jackson was a pharmaceutical junkie for over 30 years. Jackson claimed he never had plastic surgery, claims he had vitalago. Jackson never had Vitalago, just used it so he can explain getting white. Also, once again, never had plastic surgery, yet...perminant under eye underliner, smaller lips with perminate red lipstick. Jackson had to put on wigs.

Mmmm, Remember, Once you testify, Don't dress it up. Michael was a drug addict, amoung other things. He gave to the poor but he used it to have power with kids. Let's not forget!!!!Our children are safe now, from this man. Let's get the others!!!!!

He may have had a CA Lic. but did he have an active buiss. in CA. If not it is not malpractice it is simple murder either way.
