Jackson children in court case

Michael Jackson's two older children gave testimony as part of a lawsuit

Jurors in the wrongful death lawsuit filed against AEG Live have heard testimony from Michael Jackson's children.

A video interview with Paris Jackson was played at the trial over her father's death.

AEG Live lawyers played the footage, which was shot before Paris was taken to hospital after attempting suicide.

In the clip, Paris, 15, spoke of her dad's relationship with former nanny Grace Rwaramba.

Jackson family lawyers hinted that Rwaramba, 45, was fired by concert giant AEG, The New York Post reported.

AEG lawyers played a clip of Paris saying: "Sometimes my dad didn't like her so he tried to keep her away from us."

Jurors also heard an interview with her brother Prince.

Earlier, Jackson's chef Kai Chase told jurors that Paris does not want birthday parties following her dad's death.

The star died of a sedatives overdose in June 2009. The Jackson family claim that AEG pressured Jackson into comeback shows planned for London.

AEG Live LLC denies all wrongdoing.
