His former attorney Brian Oxman told Radar that Jacko's court room appearance was a highly orchestrated performance. "Michael spent 45 minutes to an hour every day getting his makeup put on," he said. "He wanted his vitiligio covered completely. Not just his face but his neck and chest and arms too. He hated the way he looked in his booking photo and he didn't want anyone to see that. So his makeup artist came over every day of the trial."

"Michael cried every single night after the trial," Oxman told Radar. "He just couldn't understand why they were doing this to him. He would call me and say 'Why?' he was crying so hard sometimes he couldn't catch his breath."

At one point during the trial, Jackson fell in the shower and had to be rushed to the hospital, where he tried to remain instead of attending court. The judge told his attorneys that if he didn't show up, however, he would revoke Jackson's bail. "Joe Jackson went to the hospital and talked to Michael," Oxman told Radar about the singer's father. "Joe told him that he loved him and that he had to do it. Even if he didn't think he could walk. He said 'I love you. You're my son. You cannot do this to yourself.' Joe convinced him that he had to show up for his fans. So Michael did. He got up and left the hospital in his pajamas."

"Michael ordered a fruit basket for accuser Gavin Arvizo when he was in the hospital being treated for cancer," Oxman said. "I had his secretary pull up his calendar and I saw that on the same day he sent a fruit basket to Ron and Nancy Reagan. Was he grooming the President? I don't think so!"

Jackson had friends in high places, and Oxman said that came in handy during the trial. "Every night at 2:30 am Michael would call me. He would have Prince Abdulla from Bahrain on the phone. He would want me to tell him what happened that day during the trial. I would tell him in plain terms, no legal jargon. Just what happened," Oxman remembered. "And the Prince would say 'Michael, we love you, we support you, we are going to help you get through this.'"

Comedian George Lopez, a friend of the accuser's family, shocked Jackson and his legal team with his testimony. "George knew that Gavin had stolen his wallet but he completely downplayed it on the stand," Oxman told Radar. "It was like he completely changed his story. Michael was so hurt by that."

During the trial, Jackson was in "immense pain for his back," Oxman told Radar. "He could barely sit up but we had multiple conversations with him. We told him 'Michael, you have to sit up straight, you can't let this jury see you slouch. It doesn't look good. Be strong. And he would, even though the pain was killing him."

Oxman told Radar that the worst day of the explosive trial was the first day of testimony. "Michael was so frightened. He didn't know what to expect and he could only imagine the worst was going to happen." However, the BEST day of the trial was also the very same day. "The first day, Martin Bashir's documentary was played and the jury fell in love with Michael," Oxman said. "It was exhilarating to watch the movie show that Michael was a kind and generous man. The jury fell in love with Michael Jackson. They thought he was a fabulous man."
