Prince Jackson – Michael Jackson’s eldest son – has testified in the ongoing hearing about the wrongful death lawsuit filed against AEG, claiming that his father was pressed so hard by the concert promoters that he cried.
The 16-year old told jurors of how MJ would cry and say, ‘They’re gonna kill me … they’re gonna kill me’ after AEG hard-pressed him over his This is It tour. He said that his father wanted more time to rehearse … something AEG apparently never gave him.
Prince went into further details … telling jurors about how AEG head Randy Philips came over to their house several times and grabbed MJ’s jailed doctor Andy Murray’s elbow in an ‘aggressive’ way.
‘He was grabbing his elbow,’ Prince said. ‘It looked aggressive to me. He was grabbing by the back of his elbow and they were really close and he was making hand motions.’
Prince also said that he saw his dad ‘half-hanging on the bed’ during the time Murray was trying to revive him after he went into cardiac arrest, claiming that after his dad gave up the ghost, Murray came out and simply told them, ‘Sorry kids. Dad’s dead.’
He also admitted that his sister Paris was worst hit by MJ’s death – as has already been seen by the world, thanks to her recent suicide attempt caused by a dangerous bout of depression – saying that she was screaming ‘I want my daddy’ while Murray tried to resuscitate him.
‘She was my dad’s princess. She definitely is dealing with [his death] in her own way.’
The Jackson family is suing AEG for mercilessly pressing the King of Pop and neglecting his health, which led to his untimely death in June 25, 2009.
