Prince Jackson 'faces speeding fine'

Prince Jackson was reportedly pulled over by police officials for speeding near his Calabasas home on Wednesday.

The 16-year-old son of late superstar Michael Jackson picked up a fine of around $250 on Wednesday after police officials stopped his vehicle.

According to TMZ, Prince was pulled over by cops near his Calabasas abode for driving "around 40 mph in a 25 zone."

The US website also reports the area where Prince was slapped with a speeding ticket is where Justin Bieber races his Ferrari. The Canadian superstar has avoided picking up the same penalty on those streets though.

Prince is currently facing a lot of drama in his personal life.

At the end of last month the teenager took to the witness stand during the trial of the wrongful death case of his father Michael brought by the Jackson family against concert promoter AEG Live.

Prince described a harrowing experience to the court, in which he gave details of his father's death for the first time.

"I ran upstairs and I saw Dr. Conrad doing CPR on my dad on the bed," he said. "My dad was hanging halfway off the bed, and his eyes were rolled back in his head.

"My sister was screaming the whole time, saying she wants her daddy. I was waiting at the bottom of the stairs, crying, waiting for the ambulance."

The King of Pop passed away on June 25 2009 from acute Propofol intoxication. Dr. Conrad Murray administered the lethal dose of the anaesthetic and is currently serving a prison sentence for Michael’s involuntary manslaughter.

Prince and the rest of the Jackson family were left devastated when his 15-year-old sister Paris made a suicide attempt last month. She is believed to be undergoing psychiatric treatment at UCLA Medical Center, with doctors reportedly advising she remain in treatment until her family’s wrongful death trial has concluded.

“It’s being recommended by her docs that she remain in treatment, and in a safe, controlled environment until the end of the wrongful death lawsuit ends,” a source said at the beginning of this month. “It’s a no brainer that Paris not have access to the internet, cell phones, and social media during the trial, since the horrific stuff she was reading about her dad pushed the teenager over the edge.”
