Michael Jackson's eldest son Prince will very likely be asked to testify at the involuntary manslaughter trial of Dr. Conrad Murray, which begins today in L.A.
An eyewitness to the horrific scene in the bedroom where his father lost his life in 2009, the 14-year-old does not want to testify, but will do what he must.
According to a TMZ report, Prince is telling family that if he's called to the stand, he'll do what needs to be done in the name of justice for his late father.
That said, he's not exactly looking forward to it. Prince is "nervous" and worried that if he's called to the stand, he might get flustered and "mess up."
If Prince, who is on the prosecution's witness list, is called by prosecutors, his grandma and guardian, Katherine, will ask her lawyers to protect him.
Not to bar him from testifying, but to request that the entire courtroom be cleared during his testimony. That wouldn't be unprecedented for minors.
Judge Michael Pastor will likely prohibit the media from putting Prince on camera and traumatizing him further, but may not clear the court altogether.
Prince is on the witness list because Dr. Murray summoned Prince Michael Jackson to MJ's bedroom for help during the fateful morning in June 2009.
Opening statements in Murray's trial begin today.
