Everyone seems to be tuned into the Conrad Murray trial. As you may have heard, Dr. Conrad Murray is currently on trial in a manslaughter case in the death of Michael Jackson. The trial can be seen on TV and on many different websites so the public can watch the high profile case, but what about MJ’s kids?! It’s clear that Michael tried to shelter his children the best he could and I’m sure he’d appreciate his kids deciding not to watch the trial. Although they aren’t watching the case, one of the children has said that they will testify if it is needed. MJ’s kids were in his custody when he passed. Read more after the jump.


Prince, Paris, and Blanket Jackson have created a self-imposed blackout of Conrad Murray’s trial … TMZ has learned.

Sources directly connected to the kids tell TMZ … the Michael Jackson manslaughter trial is just too painful to relive — especially for Prince and Paris, who witnessed the demise of their dad firsthand.

We’re told Katherine is relieved the kids don’t have the kind of curiosity that would drive them to the screen, especially after prosecutor David Walgren displayed the body of Michael Jackson in the first graphic during opening statements.

We’re told Katherine was unhappy and disturbed the shocking photo was displayed at all.

It’s unclear — and unlikely — the kids will be called as witnesses, but as we previously reported, Prince is willing to take the stand.
