Paternity Of Michael Jackson's Kids May Come Up At AEG Trial

When Katherine Jackson first filed a wrongful death lawsuit against AEG over her son Michaelís tragic passing, the initial fear was that lawyers for the large company would paint the pop star as a drug addict. After all, itís not as if they forced him to allegedly doctor shop, abuse prescription medication and not sleep for years. Its extremely likely that will still happen, but unfortunately for the family, it now seems an even more uncomfortable subject matter could come to the forefront during the proceedings.
According to TMZ, some legal experts think AEG may raise the question of the childrenís paternity. There have been rumors for a long time that someone other than MJ is the biological father. Obviously, this isnít a topic any of the family members want to get into, but by filing a lawsuit demanding billions of dollars for a wrongful death and naming specific people as benefactors, pretty much any and all areas are fair game for the court to explore.
The crux of this wrongful death lawsuit, first brought forward by Katherine Jackson, accuses AEG of killing MJ by allowing Dr. Conrad Murray to oversee his care. She wants billions in payments from the company to compensate herself and the children, but obviously, the company sees things a little bit differently. Its lawyers have argued that Murray was Jacksonís doctor long before a touring contract was negotiated, and AEG shouldnít be held responsible for the singerís poor decisions. You would like to think AEG would keep paternity out of the courtroom for the sake of the children, but with Paris and Princeís mom on the witness list and billions on the line, attorneys will need to do what they need to do to win.
