MIchael Jackson's Family

Don't Ask

Michael Jackson
's family is pleading with the judge in their wrongful death lawsuit against AEG Live to EXCLUDE any evidence of the paternity of MJ's 3 kids.

TMZ has obtained legal docs in which Katherine Jackson, Blanket, Paris and Prince argue ... it's irrelevant for a jury to hear evidence about the conception of the 3 kids. Specifically, they believe AEG has no right to delve into their biological parentage. 

The Jackson crew also wants to exclude any evidence that MJ's siblings have financial problems.  They worry AEG might try to argue that the real force behind the lawsuit is the need for cash.

And mama Jackson and the kids want the judge to bar evidence or any mention of child molestation allegations, partly because MJ was never found guilty.

A judge has yet to rule on the motions.

Dose of Dumbness

( I really like your new nic by the way)


Michael was one of the happiest men on earth untill jealousy and greed by others almost destroyed him.

And even then, he still sought to make the world a better place in which to live.

Stop the hatred Michael Jackson fans.
How does your fantasy image of him allow you to be filled with such hatred?


I know the the insults don't hurt you.
When I challenge your fantasy image of MJ hurts a bit, I know.
But what really bugs you is when I post something that deep down, even you can't deny.


Michael Jackson didn't, and would never have, loved you.
No matter what you think, you didn't know him.
When it comes down to it, Michael Jackson's was to blame for all of Michael Jackson's problems.

Paris Jackson questioned about dad's death in lawsuit

STORY HIGHLIGHTS
AEG Live also want to depose Blanket, 10, but doctor warns it would be "detrimental"
Jackson lawyers complain that AEG Live lawyers were too aggressive with Prince, 16
Questions asked of Prince were "legitimate" in a wrongful death suit, AEG lawyer says
Jackson family is suing AEG Live for billions in Michael Jackson's 2009 death

Los Angeles (CNN) -- Paris Jackson, the 14-year-old daughter of Michael Jackson, is being questioned Thursday about her father's last days as part of her family's wrongful death lawsuit against a concert promoter.

In addition, Jackson lawyers told the judge in a court filing this week they were concerned that lawyers for AEG Live, the company accused of liability in Jackson's death, were "behaving aggressively and erratically" in their questioning of the Jackson children.

AEG Live asked Los Angeles Superior Judge Yvette Palazuelos to order Blanket Jackson to appear for a deposition, but his doctor warned it would be "medically detrimental" to the 10-year-old boy, according to the court filing.

When AEG Live lawyers deposed Prince Jackson, 16, earlier this month, they asked questions intended "to agitate the boy, creating serious concern among his guardians and attorneys," the do***ent said.

Prince "testified that he was intimately involved in his father's affairs," an AEG Live lawyer said in an e-mail defending the questioning.

The wrongful death lawsuit is a high-stakes contest. Prince, Paris, Blanket and their grandmother, Katherine Jackson, are suing AEG Live for billions of dollars. The trial is set to begin in Los Angeles next month.

Jackson lawyers complained that AEG Live lawyers engaged in "a concerted tactical effort made to harass and burden the Jackson family through these abusive discovery processes."

While Blanket -- who was just 6 when his father died on June 25, 2009 -- will not be called as a witness in the trial, AEG Live has tried to force him to sit for a deposition, the filing said.

Blanket's doctor provided a letter saying it would be "medically detrimental" to the boy. "Yet defendants still to this day say they may move to compel Blanket's deposition," the Jackson filing said.

Jackson lawyers accused AEG Live lawyers of mistreating Prince when he was deposed on a recent Saturday. They "behaved in a manner designed to agitate the boy, creating serious concern among his guardians and attorneys," their filing said.

"Defense counsel asked the boy completely irrelevant and repetitive personal questions about whether he sends text messages, whether he send text messages from his phone, and whether he 'tweets,'" they said. "Defense counsel also asked the boy about every place he had ever lived, every teacher he had ever had and about his current efforts to start a career in addition to being a full-time student -- none of which have anything to do with the case at hand."

AEG Live lawyer Jessica Stebbins Bina, in an e-mail included in the court filing, defended her co-counsel Marvin Putnam's questioning of Prince.

"My understanding is that the deposition proceeded with appropriate questioning, and that the questions were legitimate questions appropriate to a wrongful death suit," she said.

The Jackson lawyers also complained about the questioning of family matriarch Katherine Jackson, who is 82. AEG Live lawyers deposed her for nine hours over three days and are asking for a fourth chance, they said. The questioning could have been easily done in two or three hours, they told the judge.

The lawsuit contends that AEG Live is responsible for Jackson's death because it hired and supervised Dr. Conrad Murray, who was administering the surgical anesthetic propofol to Jackson each night for a month to induce sleep as he prepared for a series of concerts organized by AEG Live.

AEG Live contends that Michael Jackson chose Murray as his personal physician. The promoter denies having hired or supervised Murray.

A jury found Murray guilty of involuntary manslaughter after hearing testimony that he violated medical standards in his treatment of Jackson

So much hate.
WWMJD?


By the way, I rarely post any actual hate about MJ. I may have written things about MJ that you have perceived as hate but that is because you simply didn't like it. I post questions you wouldn't like to answer. I'll give my opinion and point at how you may be wrong or are simply blind to logic, but most of it is pretty objective. I never actually wished harm on "his children" and I've never praised Dr. Murray.


I'm still wondering how a "king of all music" could not read music and is not known for playing an instrument. How he surpassed the great composers of music that we still hear daily, hundreds of years after their death. How his musical accomplishments, that were not solely his, stack up against the modern digital age, just as he was part of a similar situation with MTV. How his popularity "across the world" ignored so many markets. "KIng of Pop" sure, no problem with that, but I don't have to demonstrate how pop(ularity) is no sign of greatness again do I?


Just say no fans. After all, it could have saved someone you loved.

The music of New York City is a diverse and important field in the world of music. It has long been a thriving home for jazz, rock and the blues. It is the birthplace of hip hop, Latin freestyle, disco, and punk rock as well as the birthplace of Salsa music, born from a fusion of Cuban, Puerto Rican and Dominican influences that came together in New York's Latino neighborhoods in the 1960...s. The city's culture, a melting pot of nations from around the world, has produced vital folk music scenes such as Irish-American music and Jewish klezmer. Beginning with the rise of popular sheet music in the early 20th century, New York's Broadway musical theater and Tin Pan Alley's songcraft, New York has been a major part of the American music industry.


JUST LIKE THE KING OF "ALL" MUSIC, MICHAEL JACKSON
