The King of Pop’s kids — Paris, Prince and Blanket — have endured a lot of pain at such young ages. And now a new report says they could be asked to testify if things heat up for the trial of their father’s death.
Michael Jackson‘s manslaughter trial resumes Sept. 30 after a dramatic sequence of events when Michael’s bodyguard, Alberto Alvarez, testified as a witness.
Alvarez was the first of Michael Jackson’s bodyguards to rush to Michael’s bedroom after Dr. Conrad Murray allegedly attempted to bring Michael back to life on the morning of June 25, 2009. And the next witnesses to take the stand could be his children, according to E! News.
“All the Jacksons were on the list to testify,” Michael Flanagan, one of Murray’s defense lawyers told E!.
While the news outlet says this would be very unlikely, it’s not completely out of the question considering the children did play a large role in the events of Michael’s death.
When Murray testified yesterday, he said: “I heard Paris scream out, ‘Daddy!’ ‘Don’t let them see their dad like this, don’t let them see their dad like this.’ I kind of ushered them out… ‘Kids, don’t worry, we’ll take care of it, everything is going to be OK.”
Considering their age and the emotional stress they’ve already been under it seems like it wouldn’t be the best idea to put them on the stand.
What do YOU think Hollymoms? Even though Michael’s kids are eye witnesses, do you think it would be right to have them testify? Weigh in and vote below!
