Paris Jackson has refused to take the stand and the latest news suggests that she will not testify in the legal battle between the King of Pop’s family and AEG Live, who promoted Michael’s London comeback concerts. A representative cited health reasons.
Due to her recent suicide attempt, she will not be asked to take the stand. “Paris is not going to be testifying,” lawyer Deborah Chang said Thursday.
Prince Jackson, Paris’ older brother, took the stand recently and told the court his sister has struggled to cope following their father’s death in 2009.
“Out of all my siblings, she was probably hit the hardest because she was my dad’s princess. It really hurt her a lot. She definitely is dealing with it in her own way,” the 16-year-old stated.
“Nothing will ever be the same. I can’t sleep at night. I have a hard time sleeping. For a while after he died, I became emotionally distant from a lot of people.”
