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."

The Question should be how much money is the Michael Jackson Estate willing to spend to defend this baseless lawsuit. Even if Katherine wins this case, it will be tied up in Appellate courts for decades to come.

I don't think you need to call someone to the witness stand to establish pattern and practice. Katherine seems to have a flair for the dramatic. Prince don't play that.

Katherine is completely delusional ... on what ground does she think that this "wrongful death" would be worth anything near $40 billion? That's ridiculous. As for Prince, why she thinks that he'd serve her case when she's off in la-la land showing that she doesn't have the slightest grasp of monetary issues (refer back to the $40 billion lawsuit).

I think TMZ is confused with Prince and his bad experience with THIEVES in the temple John Branca and his dirty law firm life long career of ripping off black musicians. Check Controversy Fanzine article June 1991 "Prince sues John Branca Law Firm". John Branca represented prince when he separated from his 80s management. Unter the table tho they backstabbed thier own client prince giving royalties forever to cavallo rafallo and fargnoli. MJ is not the first time Branca has stolen from his black client rock stars. Life long thief scoundral. So its no surprise he stole MJ's entire estate in his murder by AEG's CEO Randy Phillips. Michael did FIRE his ass in early 90's probably couse he was screwing over his rival in pop music industry but also for embezzling stealing money from Michael! They are life long crooks Branca and McClain. AEG are Murders, Branca/McClain CrookThieves, and Sony the benefactors instead of MJ's children! Good thing Prince has no kids. They would get nothing anyway! Cause of EVIL in high places of music entertainment industry! Hope I see them all in HELL!!!! Oh and u too RANDY PHILLIPS MURDERER!!!!!!!!!!!!

Good luck with that 40 Billion dollar lawsuit ! Michael took those drugs on his own and he had several drugs from several doctors when he died . Good luck with that. Why is it that rich people who do drugs and die have family members who want to blame everyone but the guy doing the drugs ?

GOOD LUCK WITH THAT!!! Michael Jackson was told about the dangers of Propofol and he searched "HIGH & LOW" for someone with the necessary clinical background to administer it!!!


Should AEG have done a more thorough examination of Dr. Murray's professional background -- MAYBE -- MAYBE NOT!!! Michael Jackson brought him on board and insisted that Dr. Murray would function as his "PERSONAL PHYSICIAN"!!! As long as Michael Jackson passed the necessary physicals and performed according to the terms of his contract with AEG, how could they be held LEGALLY LIABLE FOR HIS DEATH??? As long as there wasn't any compelling medical evidence to support the rumors of his addictions -- WHAT ELSE COULD THEY DO??? Micheal Jackson was 50 years old at the time of his death and HADN'T TOURED IN YEARS!!! How in the hell could they calculate he would have EASILY GROSSED $40 BILLION DOLLARS DURING THE REMAINDER OF HIS LIFE WHEN HIS ESTATE WAS DEEPLY MIRED IN "DEBT" WHEN HE DIED??? Michael Jackson WASN'T MAKING THAT KIND OF MONEY AT THE TIME OF HIS DEATH??? THAT DOG AIN'T GOING TO HUNT -- PERIOD!!!
