Paris Jackson - Paris Jackson testifies in father's court case via video

Paris Jackson has testified in her father Michael Jackson's wrongful death lawsuit via video link.

The 15-year-old aspiring actress is currently recuperating in hospital following a failed suicide attempt earlier this month, but was still required to give evidence in the legal battle that the Jackson family have brought against AEG Live in relation to the King of Pop's death yesterday (18.06.13).

Paris' legal guardian, her grandmother Katherine Jackson, and other family members have brought the lawsuit against the company as they claim concert promoter failed to properly investigate Conrad Murray - who is currently serving four years imprisonment for the involuntary manslaughter

of Michael, who died from a Propofol overdose, and has lost his medical licence - before entrusting Michael to his care.

AEG defence lawyer Jessica Stebbins Bina played a live clip of Paris from the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles, California, revealing why Michael fired their former nanny, Grace Rwaramba.

Paris - who has an older brother Prince, 16, and Blanket, 11 - said: ''My dad didn't like her ... she was sneaky. She wasn't an honest person and lied a lot.

''One time when me and my brother were really young, before Blanket was born. She would call the hotel and say she was his wife and they'd let her in, and he'd wake up and she'd be like in his bed ... She was obsessed with him. That's what he told us ... kind of freaky.''

When the teen was asked why her father didn't fire the nanny permanently, Paris replied, ''He did. He sent her to India. She kept coming back.''

Lawyers for the Jackson family - who insisted the teen wouldn't be forced to testify - believe pressure from AEG contributed to the King of Pop's death in June 2009, just two weeks before he was about to embark on his 'This Is It' residency at The O2 arena in London.

Paris' brother Prince is also listed as a potential witness in the trial, which is in its' sixth week.

I hope her testimony was helpful to the trial. Paris needs to be told, it will NEVER matter biologically whether MJ's sperm was or wasn't used, HE WAS/IS AND ALWAYS WILL BE HER FATHER, AND SHE KNOWS HOW MUCH HE LOVED ALL THREE OF THEM! I hope she doesn't let anything that anybody says deter's her from what she knows to be true! People who put out accusations against any deceased person all have to same agenda's MONEY OR PUBLICITY and these scam artists all know if they put their name's or situation's in the media and then USE THE NAME OF MICHAEL JACKSON ALONG SIDE OF THEIR'S, THAT WILL ALWAYS MEAN IT WILL BE PUT OUT PUBLICLY, BECAUSE THE MEDIA ARE JUST GREEDY BASTARDS SOMETIMES AND COMMON SENSE VS RATINGS TO THEM NEVER PREVAIL!!!!! Get well soon, Paris!!
