Michael Jackson’s Son Witnessed His Death

Michael Jackson’s 12-year-old son witnessed his father’s death last Thursday, and thought he was kidding around!

His oldest son, Prince, saw his father collapse and didn’t realize he was being serious, a family insider tells The NY Post. When he did, he stood “in a trance” while Jackson’s personal doctor, Dr. Conrad Murphy, attempted to revive him.

Stacy Brown, a Jackson family biographer who spent the last few hard days with Jackson family, reveals “the horror of it all is that Prince thought his dad was just being his dad and clowning, but it was real, and he watched as they worked on him.”

“Prince was stunned — in a trance — just watching,” Brown said. “There was no movement, just looking around and not really processing what was really happening.”

So sad.
