Michael Jackson's oldest kids Prince and Paris Jackson have expressed interest that they would like to testify in the Dr. Conrad Murray manslaughter trial.
Murray, who is charged with involuntary manslaughter in the death of 2009 death of Michael Jackson, is currently on trial over the excessive amount of propofol he allegedly administered to the singer.
A Jackson family insider says:
"Katherine is resisting the move, because she knows how traumatic it would be for them, but both Prince Michael and Paris have said they want to tell the jury what they saw on the day their father died. Both LaToya and Katherine agree, however, that Blanket should not testify as he is too young.
Prince and Paris are determined to take the stand, though. Ultimately, I don't believe Katherine will deny them that chance, even though she doesn't want them to and has told them so. The kids have said they don't want their father's legacy to be tarnished by the trial and they believe their evidence will help convict Doctor Murray.
LaToya has said it would be good for the children to, 'Get what is inside them, out of them.' She feels it is a way for them to release the hurt. Above all though, she believes her brother was murdered and what Prince Michael and Paris could tell the jury, would inevitably help convict the doctor."
We're not sure if this is the best idea. The children are still fairly young and it could be heartbreaking for them to have to endure the testimonies that will go on during that trial.
This might devastate them even more.
