Prince Jackson
just testified ... Dr. Conrad Murray informed them of Michael Jackson's passing by glibly announcing, "Sorry kids. Dad's dead."

Prince has taken the stand in the Jackson family's wrongful death lawsuit against AEG, saying all he and his siblings could do was cry after hearing the news.

Prince said he recalled being in the sitting room of the Holmby Hills mansion when his father went into cardiac arrest on June 25th, 2009. Prince said he heard screams and Murray summoned him upstairs, where Prince saw his father "half hanging out of the bed" while Murray administered CPR.

He said Paris was hit the hardest by her dad's death, screaming that she "wanted her daddy" while Murray was trying to resuscitate him.

Prince said, "She was my dad's princess. She definitely is dealing with [his death] in her own way."

As we reported, Paris has sunken into a deep and dangerous depression recently, stemming from her father and his death.

Just let this be a message to anyone who would continue to label Jackson in a negative light. His kids are the innocent ones who have to suffer for that ignorance. I hope Paris goes to live with her mother , as that is who she needs. Prince Michael II should go with.

Can they make it more obvious that he has been coached???


I am sure Corrad said to him, "Congratulations! you can walk about on the streets without wearing any ugly masks now. Just in case you need money in the future, keep a bottle of this peep!!!"

Just so some of you people know, it is very rare for someone to be pronounced dead "at the scene". It is usually only done if the person has suffered a massive amount body damage (no joke intended), or there are signs that the person has been dead for an extended period of time.


Of course the kid was coached at least to some degree, he is speaking for one side of the case.
The content of the statement has no bearing on the trial.


MJ should have thought of those kids before allowing anyone to give him surgical anesthesia in his own home every night for weeks. Either MJ had responsibility for his own well being or he was mentally incompetent to make decisions about it.


MJ held up Murray to those children as a savior, and allowed them to be put in danger by having all that stuff in the house so he could get the 12-18 hours a day "sleep" he desired.
Sure, what a great "father".

The kid is lying. The kids were told after the death was called at the hospital after a long wait by Frank DiLeo. Katherine was told by Murray. She even said in her Oprah interview that the kids were told by someone else at the hospital.

Arnie Klein's son has zero credibility. And Paris was "daddy's Princess" Of course he wanted little white girl to be his princess. This is just so sick. Black man buys white child to be his princess. Sick freak.

Oh yeah, we haters are heartless to say anything against these brats. But it was okay when they taunted and called Jordan, Gavin and his sister and younger brother horrible names!


Why is that, oh because their fathers were no famous?!

Michael Jackson's son recalls father's tears, fatigue and death

June 26, 2013, 7:03 p.m.


Michael Jackson’s eldest son testified Wednesday that during rehearsals for Jackson's anticipated "This Is It" comeback tour, his father told him, "They're going to kill me, they're going to kill me.'"

Prince Jackson said his father seemed generally pleased when he returned home from rehearsals but wished he had more time to practice before the upcoming concerts.

He testified his father would sometimes get upset after receiving phone calls from AEG Live Chief Executive Randy Phillips, or Tohme Tohme, his sometime manager.


"He would get off the phone, he would cry sometimes," Prince Jackson said.

He testified at one point, Phillips aggressively grabbed Jackson’s elbow during a conversation. He said that incident took place either June 23 or 24 in 2009. Jackson died June 25.

The testimony came in the ongoing wrongful death case in which Jackson’s children and mother contend AEG, which was promoting and financing the tour, pushed the pop singer relentlessly as the tour date approached.

Prince Jackson also recounted his memories of the day his father died.

He testified he was on the first floor of their rented Holmby Hills mansion when he heard screaming upstairs. When he ran to the kitchen to see what was doing on, he said he saw Dr. Conrad Murray run back up to the second floor.

Kai Chase, the family's chef, told him Murray wanted him upstairs.

When he got to the bedroom, he said he saw his father lying half off the bed, his eyes rolled back in his head. He said Murray was giving his father CPR.

He said he recalled his sister Paris was screaming, calling for her “daddy.”

Prince said he followed the paramedics to Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center and learned of his father's death when Murray announced, "Sorry kids. Dad's dead."

He said Murray told them Jackson had died of a heart attack.

"We just cried," the performer's son said.

Prince Jackson is the first family member to testify in the trial, which is nearing the two-month mark

Here's the deal. All the things his "children" are saying...probably never happened. Oddly, I now realize who Michael was shielding them from. It was HIS family
