As if they haven’t been through enough since their father’s death last year, it seems two of Michael Jackson’s kids, Paris and Prince, will now have to speak about their dad in court. According to RadarOnline, Doctor Conrad Murray, will call the 12- and 13-year-olds to the witness stand, in hopes of getting himself off the hook for involuntary manslaughter.
Murray, who has been charged for providing Jackson with a lethal dose of a sedative, believes Paris and Prince will testify that their dad had a drug addiction that was unrelated to anything Murray may have provided the pop-star. According to a source, the kids made some statements–in the presence of others–following Jackson’s death that could help Murray in his trial–which is set to happen next year.
“After saying goodbye to her dad at the hospital, Paris said, ‘My daddy is so cold again. He was always cold. He would sit by the fire to get warm. We were always afraid he would fall in as [he] was so close tot he flames. He couldn’t get warm. Now there he is…so cold.” Murray was with Jackson when he died in his LA home, and is now fighting to convince everyone he was not responsible.
A source close to the case thinks Paris and Prince might just be the key to making that happen. “Prince and Paris knew their dad relied on Dr. Murray to survive and knew their father adored him,” said the source. “Their comments, if they back him, could save him from jail because it would work well in the eyes of a jury.”
