Today, the 25th of June, is Michael Jackson's death anniversary.

The King of Pop died four years ago at the age of 50 from cardiac arrest, for which Dr. Conrad Murray was eventually found guilty of involuntary manslaughter.

Michael may be gone, but four years later, his legacy lives on.

While his demise introduced a new generation of fans and reinvigorated his loyal followers to his musical greatness, he has not rested entirely in peace.

The personal problems and eccentricities that dominated news when he was alive have continued to do so in the aftermath of his tragic passing.

Jackson’s children, Prince, Blanket and Paris Jackson, who he worked so hard to ensure would be normal and well-adjusted, have had a tough time.

Testifying in a pre-taped video, a healthy-looking Paris Jackson spoke out at the Michael Jackson wrongful death trial Tuesday in Los Angeles.

Paris Jackson Testifies

Filmed before the 15-year-old would be hospitalized after a suicide attempt, Paris' deposition pertained to the former family nanny, Grace Rwaramba.

Per CNN, the deposition of Paris Jackson was an attempt by AEG Live's lawyers to counter testimony by former Jackson personal chef Kai Chase.

Chase reportedly depicted Grace Rwaramba as a nurturing figure to Michael Jackson's three children and claimed she "was the mother they knew."

In her testimony, however, Paris, appeared to have a different take.

Paris Jackson’s suicide attempt came after she was told she does not have the same biological father as her brother Prince, according to a new report.

The alleged revelation by the Sun (UK) says that she knew Michael Jackson "could not be" her natural dad, yet believed she and Prince had the same one.

Paris Jackson believed Debbie Rowe was their mother and an unnamed man their dad, but if this report is to be believed, she's learned this is untrue.

She was just recently given the news, the Sun reports, to prepare her for harsh grilling during the $40 billion Michael Jackson wrongful death trial.

A major identity crisis followed, along with a string of devastating fights between Paris and Prince, 16, and eventually led to Paris' attempt on her life.

The Michael Jackson wrongful death trial is in full swing, and it looks like defendant/concert promoting giant AEG Live actually stands a chance of losing.

This Was It

Michael's mother and his children's guardian, Katherine Jackson, have made a bold effort to convince a jury AEG Live was negligent, TMZ reports.

Randy Phillips, the head of the company, had trouble explaining why he thought MJ "looked really good" in a meeting just five days before his death.

A photograph of the entertainer taken a day before - June 19, 2009 - clearly showed otherwise, with a smiling Jackson looking noticeably gaunt and pale.

Kenny Ortega and others testifying that they were alarmed over MJ's health as AEG and Dr. Conrad Murray ignored them has also provd compelling.

Paris Jackson is stable following her recent suicide attempt, and her condition is improving, but she's still dealing with some pretty heavy issues emotionally.

Chief among them? She never properly grieved or emotionally processed Michael Jackson's 2009 death, sources connected with the Jackson family say.

Currently in treatment at UCLA Medical Center, Paris has felt the impact of bullying on social media and websites, and has let it "really get to her."

She does not have access to her phone or the Internet, so the problem is on the back burner for now, however it's only a matter of time until it returns.

Is Paris Jackson suffering from an identity crisis? And are the unorthodox parenting decisions of Michael Jackson himself to blame for his daughter's woes?

As decisions are being made on how to best treat the 15-year-old after Paris Jackson's suicide attempt, those close to her are wondering what went wrong.

There is no denying that Michael Jackson was a loving father who tried to protect his kids from the pain and suffering he faced as a child in the public spotlight.

But MJ's untimely death at the age of 50 and the trauma that his passing would cause them - directly and indirectly - were things he could not foresee.

Some family friends say the long-term damage done by isolating his children from much of the world and their mother became an issue after his passing.

A housekeeper who once described seeing Wade Robson in the shower with Michael Jackson may be the key to the former's claims of molestation.

Robson, 30, recently accused Jackson of sexual abuse in a claim against his estate, then defended himself on Today, calling Michael a pedophile.

Wade Robson, Michael Jackson

Blanca Francia's testimony during Jackson's 2005 child molestation trial included a graphic account of MJ showering naked with a young Wade Robson.

Francia described seeing Michael's underwear on the floor outside the Neverland Ranch shower, as well as Wade's child-sized neon green underwear.

She said she couldn't see exactly what the King of Pop was doing in there because the shower door was fogged up, but said she heard him laughing.

Add Debbie Rowe to the loud, growing chorus of Wade Robson critics.

The former wife of Michael Jackson does not believe for a second that he molested Robson when he was a child, as the choreographer now claims.

"I was angered that Wade Robson reversed his sworn testimony from court in 2005, and now claims to be a victim of sexual abuse," she tells TMZ.

"His publicity-seeking attempt is opportunistic and just oozes falseness."

Debbie Rowe says this will do nothing to ruin MJ's legacy in the end.

Michael Jackson's nephew Taj has come forward to say HE was molested as a child - by a family member on his mother's side of the family, not a Jackson.

Taj Jackson, the son of Michael's brother Tito Jackson, says that Michael personally consoled him after the incident, and that Wade Robson is a liar.

Taj, 29, claimed on Twitter that he's in a unique position to judge Wade's sexual abuse allegations against Michael because he knows what it's like:

"That is how I KNOW Wade is lying. Because I AM a survivor. I was sexually abuse (sic)."

"By [a family member] on my mom's side of the family when I was a kid."

Wade Robson's interview on Today this morning, in which he said Michael Jackson is a pedophile who abused and brainwashed him, was pretty compelling.

Compellingly atrocious, according to Tom Mesereau, the attorney who repped MJ in his 2005 molestation case and scoffs at Robson's sex abuse claims.

"This is a pathetic and an obvious grab for publicity and an attempt to put pressure on [Michael Jackson's] Estate to pay him money," he tells TMZ.

Mesereau says that Wade Robson is flat-out lying when he says this is not about money, saying, "Why call yourself a creditor if it's not about money." 

Robson has filed a belated creditor's claim with the estate.
