For all that is negatively written about Michael Jackson, he was without a doubt a loving, caring father who cherished every moment with his children.

A collection of never-before-seen private family photos and home videos were shown in court Thursday, and they truly show MJ at his absolute best.

The two videos, shot by Michael on Christmas 2006 and a few years earlier, were played for the jury in the family's wrongful death lawsuit against AEG.

It's pretty wonderful, yet bittersweet as Michael asks each of his kids what they want to be when they grow up, and clearly loves every second of it.

The idea behind releasing this material is to showcase the immeasurable loss the children suffered when Michael died (which they say AEG is to blame for).

Legal battle aside, Prince Jackson testified about MJ and how loving he was, and the videos and photos shown in court clearly drive that point home.

Wade Robson has outlined the child molestation allegations against Michael Jackson, along with "coaching" he later received from the King of Pop.

Robson, 30, says he was molested in various ways and at various times beginning on February 4, 1990 and continuing for the next seven years.

Much of the alleged abuse of Wade has been redacted, but some notable details - such as Michael's response to his first molestation accuser - remain.

According to TMZ, documents filed by Robson against MJ's estate say that after Jordan Chandler made allegations against MJ, Michael called Wade.

Jackson then "brainwashed him into being a good soldier."

Prince Michael Jackson testified in the wrongful death lawsuit against AEG Live yesterday that the concert promoter was killing his late father.

Or so Michael said.

  • Prince MJ
  • Bad Conrad

Michael Jackson had such issues with AEG leading up to his death that would cry and say, "They're gonna kill me ... they're gonna kill me."

Prince testified that his father was so excited for his 2009 "This Is It" tour, but felt he needed more time to rehearse, which AEG did not like.

Prince also said that AEG honcho Randy Phillips came over several times and grabbed Dr. Conrad Murray by the elbow, as if to school him.

Prince Jackson, the eldest son of Michael Jackson, is expected to testify today in the wrongful death suit filed by his family against AEG Live.

Lawyers for the Jackson family will call Prince, 16, to the stand one day after the four-year anniversary of Michael's death from a drug overdose.

An overdose, the family claims, AEG Live is indirectly responsible for.

Prince Jackson

Prince Michael was 12 when MJ died from an overdose of surgical anesthetic propofol while he rehearsed for a series of comeback concerts in London.

AEG Live executives, MJ's personal chef and the choreographer for his aborted "This Is It" concert series, are among those who have testified at the trial.

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.
