Paris Jackson was her dad's princess


Paris Jackson was her late father's "princess".

Prince Michael Jackson (16) told the jury in his family's wrongful death lawsuit against concert promoters AEG Live on Wednesday his 15-year-old sister, who recently attempted suicide, is still struggling to cope with Michael's death because they had a very special bond.

Admitting his sister was hit the hardest by Michael's death, he explained, "She was my dad's princess. She definitely is dealing with [his death] in her own way."

The Thriller hitmaker's eldest child also recalled the moment when his father died at their Holmby Hills mansion in Los Angeles in 2009, after being given a lethal dose of propofol, and said all he and his siblings could do was cry.

According to gossip website he described how he was in the sitting room when he was summoned upstairs by Dr Conrad Murray, who was later convicted of involuntary manslaughter for his role in Michael's death.

Prince Michael said he heard Paris scream that she “wanted her daddy” and saw his father "half hanging out of the bed" while Dr Murray administered CPR.

He said Dr Murray then announced, "Sorry kids. Dad's dead."

The teenager also told jurors his father was convinced his This Is It residency, which would have seen him perform 50 concerts in The O2 arena in London, was going to kill him.

The Jackson family are suing AEG Live for hiring and not properly investigating Dr Conrad Murray.
