UPDATE: 1:43 p.m. PDT: Paris Jackson is about to begin her deposition, and is wearing a blue top, jeans, and brown Ugg boots. TJ Jackson, her co-guardian, is also with her.
Michael Jackson‘s daughter, Paris, is being deposed Thursday afternoon in Los Angeles in connection with a wrongful death lawsuit her grandmother, Katherine Jackson, filed against concert promoter, AEG, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.
Katherine contends that AEG was responsible for her son’s death because they were responsible for hiring Dr. Conrad Murray to be his physician.
“The deposition will take place in a private interview room that is big enough to accomodate lawyers for Katherine, and AEG, beginning at 1:30,” a source tells RadarOnline.com exclusively.
“The deposition could go all day. Even though Paris isn’t expected to testify at the trial, AEG wanted to take her deposition because she is a co-Plaintiff in the case.
Prince Jackson, Michael’s oldest child, “was also deposed last week, and it didn’t go well for him. In fact the proceedings grew so intense for Prince, that a break was called, and it had to resume the next day,” the insider tells us.
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Prince plans on testifying at the trial, which is scheduled to begin in April.
Katherine suffered a huge legal setback recently when a California court dismissed all but one of her claims against AEG and its president, Tim Leiweke.
The defendants have filed legal documents with the Court of Appeal in California to dismiss that one claim, on the question of whether AEG Live negligently hired Murray, Jackson’s long time personal physician. Additionally, all but one of her claims against the remaining defendants were dismissed and the California Court of Appeals ordered Michael’s medical records unsealed.
Murray was convicted in 2011 for the involuntary manslaughter death of Michael after administering a fatal dose of propofol to help the pop singer sleep.
Murray hadn’t formally signed his employment contract with AEG at the time of Michael’s death, and say they aren’t responsible for his tragic death.
