Paris Jackson ‘impressed’ in wrongful death inquiry

Paris Jackson

Paris Jackson’s aplomb “impressed” lawyers at a deposition for her late father Michael’s wrongful death suit which was filed by family matriarch and Paris’ grandmother Katherine.

The lawsuit filed by family matriarch and the King of Pop’s mother Katherine accuses concert promoter AEG Live of helping to cause Michael’s death by “pressuring him to prepare for his 2009 comeback concerts, despite his fragile health”.

The suit was filed on behalf of Michael’s three children Prince, Paris and Blanket.

The 14-year-old kept her composure throughout her recent deposition in the case.

“Paris impressed all of the lawyers involved with her professionalism and demeanour during her deposition last week,” a source told Radar Online.

“Her older brother, Prince, had a rough time during his depo a week earlier, so allowances were made to make sure it didn’t happen again. That’s why Katherine’s lawyers demanded that Paris’ deposition take place at the courthouse so the judge could intervene if it appeared to be getting too tough for her. Luckily it didn’t come to that. Paris will have to sit for another day of questioning but she is okay with that – she is an extremely intelligent, compassionate and thoughtful young lady.”

The suit claims AEG Live executives “hired and supervised Dr. [Conrad] Murray,” who was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in Michael’s death.

He has been serving a four-year sentence in Los Angeles County Jail since November 2011.

AEG deny any wrongdoing.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

A close relationship could reach a rocky patch. Resist the urge to emotionally withdraw from your loved one. Be willing to address the issues that have been pulling you apart. You could hear some painful things about your behaviour. Instead of getting defensive, be open to changing for the sake of your relationship. Think back to a time when someone you loved worked hard to gain your affection and approval. Pattern your attitude after theirs. Being flexible is more important than being right.More
