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.

Prince, God bless you, sweetheart. I pray for you and your brother and sister.

Don't believe that anyone truly *close* to Prince would give personal information like that to TMZ or anyone in the media.

Poor Kid(s). It's a shame that MJ's family will continue to try and milk every penny they can from his name. Every time they bring "his kids" out for photo ops is awful.

MJ was fully aware of the "treatment" the Dr. was giving him. Remember MJ himself held the Dr. up as a savior to the kids.


So what was it stuper fans?
Was Michael Jackson mentally retarded or perhaps an idiot savant living in a Disneyland like place in his mind with complete childlike innocence not at all in control of his own life and actions but dependent and victimized by his handlers and completely ignorant of what was being done to him medically. Therefore he would be completely not responsible for his actions, correct?


Remember stuper fans, he is innocent until proven guilty. If he is acquitted for ANY reason I expect you to be consistent and blindly defend his total innocence of everything he has ever done in his life no matter what, because he was acquitted on one charge. It's only fair.


Let another chapter of the freak show that was Michael Jackson's life begin.

Why not have a live video feed of his testimony? Those kids have been through too much as it is...

These kids should be sent back to their biological parents
and raised in normal homes. The fact that Michael J. died from a drug overdose shouldn't surprise people and if the child has to testify what he saw, then he should also tell about all the other drug abuse he saw before that day.

The whole world is curious to know what Prince saw and heard that fateful day - June 25. If he does not testify now and tell the world what he saw and heard, he will be asked forever and a day what he saw and heard....and who knows, once he does speak publicly about the events that happened, it could have a tremendous positive healing effect on him. May God's strength and courage be with Prince.

Yes the Dr. has SOME culpability, but drug addicts chose to take drugs and usually die way too young. Almost all of the coverage of this story treats MJ like a victim, and he wasn't.

Regarding children testifying, their testimony can be videotaped and then played in court.

mj fan forever regurgitated 3 hours ago

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!!!!

Why is he afraid he will mess up? Is he afraid he will not say exactly what he was told to say?

And yes, of course, Michael Jackson holds culpability in his own demise, but no medical doctor that takes the Hippocratic Oath should behave in the manner that Dr. Murray behaved. It is right and correct that he be prosecuted for his actions.
