Prince

Could Be Called to Testify

in MJ Wrongful Death Suit

3/31/2013 8:58 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0331_prince_mj_gettyPrince and Michael Jackson never worked together in their illustrious careers ... until now ... because TMZ has learned Katherine Jackson intends to call Prince as a witness in her wrongful death lawsuit against AEG.

As TMZ first reported, MJ's mom and three kids are seeking $40 billion in damages from AEG for its alleged negligent hiring and supervision of Dr. Conrad Murray.

According to docs filed earlier this month, Katherine's legal team plans to call nearly 100 witnesses ... with one of them being Prince. 

It's curious, since Prince and MJ never collaborated, but we're hearing Katherine's legal team believes Prince had a bad experience with AEG in the past that could be relevant.

Can you imagine Prince on the witness stand? 

"Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth."

I thought the Mikey J fambly had already taken out the MD aka an employee of Mikey J who was a drug addicted pedophile, who died looking like an anorexic white woman having a bad hair day. How far will a fambly go to eke the last $$$ out of the system for a VERY talented sick man that they raised poorly and bled dry at his peak??

40 billion??! Knowing TMZ they got the amount wrong, but that notwithstanding, how greedy this family has showed itself as since his passing. But seriously, there's no WAY MJ would have made NEAR that amount....ever. He was rich, but not nearly that rich. Constantly having to pay off lawyers for reasons I need not detail here. But let the guy RIP, I mean for his kids sake if nothing else.

You don't have enough money? At some point you have to realise that while his "doctor" was ultimately held responsible for his death, Jackson had a little something to do with it too. You can't just sue everybody you can think of because your upset and angry. I'm upset and angry too, Should I be able to sue you because YOU negligently allowed him to sign up with AEG? How about because YOU deprived me of all the music he could have created had YOU checked into all the details. How about because the intervention YOU,(his family) staged for him didn't work? Should Micheals' fans be able sue each family member individually because none of you could save him from himself? I am not entirely sure why the insurance company hasn't sued you. He obviously didn't tell them he was hooked on these drugs, but you all knew and we know that because you tried to hold an intervention. I loved the guy, and his death was tragic, but like thousands of other overdoses every day, it is one that HE could have prevented.

Jacko should have just said No. He killed himself.

are you guys sure you haven't mixed up the picture / storyline here? Michael has a son named Prince ... rumor has it that it's his son Prince Michael Jackson Jr who would be taking the stand ... is Prince (aka. Prince Rogers Nelson) also taking the stand in addition to Michael's son Prince?

This Jackson family is ALWAYS looking for free money and publicity. I wish they all had Dr. Murray as their physician.

Conrad Murray killed Michael Jackson. MJ couldn't have killed himself with PROPOVOL even if he wanted to.
The Fact is..
If MJ wanted to or had the inclantion to kill himeslf, he would have after or before that malicious, abomination of a trial that nearly killed him as he went through it, in the first place.
Said no?? To what???
