Kathy has been a longtime friend of the family, and went to private school with the late pop icon when she was 13 and he was 14.

Our thoughts are with all of them on what is sure to be a very difficult day.

Janet Jackson Attends Dr. Conrad Murray Trial With Her Family

Janet Jackson

As planned, Janet Jackson arrived at the trial of Dr. Conrad Murray on Tuesday morning.

She cancelled Australian tour dates to support her family as the prosecution continues to argue that the doc should be convicted for involuntary manslaughter in the death of Michael Jackson.

Instead of performing in the land down under this week, she opted to join her sister LaToya, brother Marlon, and mother Katherine at the trial.

We can only imagine how tough it is for the Jackson family during this time, so our thoughts and prayers go out to each and every one of them!

Michael Jackson's Kids Boycotting Trial

Filed under: Legal MattersCeleb Kidz

The Jackson kids have made it clear - they will NOT be attending the Conrad Murray on trial.

Prince, Paris, and Blanket Jackson are boycotting the Michael Jackson manslaughter trial because the events are just too painful for them to relive.

As we earlier reported, Prince and Paris saw their father's body right after he died and Prince was considering being a witness in the trial.

MJ's mom, Katherine, is said to be very relieved that the children do not want to be involved and has since been extremely unhappy after prosecutor David Walgren released a picture of Michael's body during the opening statements of the trial.

Honestly, this is for the best. The children are too young and having to go through the pain all over again is just too much for them. We're sure there's enough evidence against Murray without needing the use of the kids.

latoya-jackson-live-tweets-first-day-of-dr-murray-manslaughter-trial

LaToya Jackson may only describe herself via her Twitter handle as "a two-time bestselling author, entrepreneur, Grammy award winning songwriter, entertainer, philanthropist", and "champagne and cavair connoisseur", but we think she needs to add conspiracy theorist to that list!

Michael Jackson's sister has always been adamant regarding certain conspiracies regarding the pop icon's death, and during the first day of his doctor, Conrad Murray's Manslaughter trial, took to the social networking site to make some pretty strong accusations while in the courtroom!

Check out her Tweets throughout the day (below)!

What do U think?? Is LaToya on to something?

Billy Bob Thornton's Daughter Found Guilty Of Manslaughter In 1-Year-Old Girl's Death

Filed under: Legal MattersSad Sad

billy bob thorntons daughter found guilty of manslaughter

It was two years ago yesterday that we first learned about the tragic death of a 1-year-old girl who was under the care of Billy Bob Thornton's estranged daughter Amanda Brumfield.

Now, we've learned that Brumfield has been found guilty of aggravated manslaughter in the 1-year-old's death.

As a recap, Billy Bob's daughter was babysitting the 1-year-old at the time, and claimed that the child "was trying to climb out of a playpen and hit her head," but the defense argued that the fall might have aggravated "a previous injury," which could have caused the infant's death.

Brumfield's sentencing is expected to take place this July.

Such a sad, awful situation. Our thoughts and prayers continue to go out to the parents of that poor child.

Jury Acquits Nancy Kerrigan's Brother In Father’s Death

Jury Acquits Kerrigan Brother In Father’s Death

Nancy Kerrigan’s brother is off the hook.

She talked with reporters outside of the court where her brother Mark was being acquitted of manslaughter of their 70-year-old dad, saying that Mark had nothing to do with it and that their father never would have wanted him to be prosecuted.

Mark had been charged with grabbing his father around the neck during an argument, causing cartilage to fracture and his heart to fail.

But the jury decided that Mark was not involved in the death.

This story is messy and ugly. Glad it's over.

Nancy Kerrigan's Brother Awaiting Verdict On Manslaughter Charge

Filed under: Legal MattersSad SadFitness

Nancy Kerrigan

Nancy Kerrigan's brother, Mark, is currently waiting for jury deliberations on whether or not he is guilty of killing his father, Daniel Kerrigan.

Mark got into a violent argument while intoxicated with his 70-year-old father who died from heart failure as a result on January 24, 2010.

The prosecutor referred to Mark as an "angry, mean, nasty, drunk son" while asking the jury for a guilty verdict under the charges of involuntary manslaughter and assault and battery on a person 60 years or older causing serious bodily injury.

We would naturally assume this would tear the Olympic gold medalist's family apart, but Nancy and her mother, Brenda, actually SUPPORT Mark. In fact, Brenda even testified on his behalf.

Although accused of grabbing his father around the neck during the fight that may have lead to his death, Brenda said the altercation lasted only a few seconds with Mark never touching his father's neck. Instead, she claims she saw her son "bear hug" her husband around his waist, then watched him fall to the floor "like a feather coming right out of the sky."

Guilty or not, this is a pretty awful circumstance for any family to go through.

If convicted of manslaughter, Mark could serve simple probation or up to 20 years in prison, while the assault and battery charges carries a maximum sentence of 10 years.
