Diana Ross - Stars Added To Jackson Trial Witness Wish List

Diana Ross, Prince and Spike Lee are among the 97 people listed as witnesses for the prosecution in the Jackson family's upcoming legal showdown with Aeg officials.

Jackson's mother and three children have accused the entertainment bosses of hastening the music legend's death in 2009 by providing him with the wrong medic and demanding too much of the singer, despite concerns for his health.

The civil trial is expected to include a string of witnesses - and there could be a few superstars taking the stand.

Attorneys for the plaintiffs have listed 97 possible witnesses, while Aeg's legal team has selected 113.

Jackson's mother, Katherine, at least two of his kids and his ex-wives Lisa Marie Presley and Debbie Rowe are expected to testify, along with selected members of the Jackson family.

Dr. Conrad Murray, who was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in connection with Jackson's death, is listed as a potential witness for both sides.

Jury selection began last week (02Apr13) and the trial is expected to begin later this month (Apr13).

Jackson died two weeks before the first of his This Is It comeback concert series, promoted by Aeg Live, was scheduled to hit the stage in London.
