ABC News’ Lesley Messer and Vania Stuelp report:
Video and photos released in a wrongful death lawsuit against Michael Jackson’s concert promoter offered an intimate look into the life that Jackson shared with his three children, Prince, 16, Paris, 15, and Blanket, 11.
Lawyers introduced the images, later obtained by KABC, to support testimony by Michael Jackson’s mother, Katherine Jackson, 83, in her family’s lawsuit against AEG Live.
Katherine Jackson described her son as “a very good person” and “one of the best fathers.”
“Words could not describe the love for his children,” she said. “You’d be surprised what a good father he was.”
Amid the evidence presented in court, there was even a photo shown of Jackson bonding with his parents.
“My sweet little boy,” said Katherine Jackson, 83, before she told the judge that she was too tired to continue testifying this afternoon. “Michael was always sensitive and loving.”
Michael Jackson died in 2009 after being given a lethal dose of the drug propofol.
The Jackson family has sued AEG Live, claiming that the tour promotion company was negligent by hiring Dr. Conrad Murray to care for Jackson. In 2011, Murray was convicted of involuntary manslaughterin conjunction with Jackson’s death.
