Prince, Paris, and Blanket Jackson, the children of the late Michael Jackson, have decided to instill a self-imposed boycott of Dr. Conrad Murray's trial.
The physician, accused of involuntary manslaughter, faces a long prison term if convicted. The trial, which began last week, is expected to last weeks.
Sources say that for the kids, especially Prince and Paris, rehashing the details of how Michael died is just too hard, and they're trying to tune it out.
Katherine Jackson, Michael's mother and the kids' guardian, is said to be relieved that kids aren't more curious and desperate to pay close attention.
After prosecutor David Walgren displayed the body of Michael Jackson in the opening statement of the Dr. Conrad Murray trial, the stakes were high.
Katherine was unhappy and disturbed the shocking pic was displayed, and the 911 call placed after MJ was found unresponsive was also unnerving.
At this point it's unlikely that the kids will be called as witnesses against Murray, as the prosecution feels it has plenty of others to prove its case.
The children certainly do not wish to be involved whatsoever. However, if asked to take the stand, Prince Michael will testify without complaint.
