Michael Jackson -- Plain Old Dad

Michael Jackson
-- who was so elusive and freakish during his adult life -- was privately a doting dad who was adored by his kids -- at least based on the family pictures that were shown to the jury.

Prince Jackson testified Wednesday about MJ and how loving he was when no one but the kids were around.  The photos that went along with Prince's testimony seem to prove the point.

Check out the pics.  It may change your opinion about Michael.
