(Newser) – Things seemed to be going pretty well for Michael Jackson’s children, but that may not last long. Dr. Conrad Murray, who will stand trial for manslaughter in Jackson’s death, plans to call Prince and Paris Jackson to the stand. “Prince and Paris knew their dad relied on Dr. Murray to survive and knew their father adored him,” a source tells Radar. Murray expects the children to admit their father was addicted to drugs, and specifically wants Paris to testify to statements she reportedly made soon after Jackson’s death.

“After saying goodbye to her dad at the hospital, Paris said, 'My daddy is so cold again. He was always cold. He would sit by the fire to get warm. We were always afraid he would fall in. ... He couldn't get warm. Now there he is ... so cold,” the source says. “Their comments, if they back him, could save him from jail because it would work well in the eyes of a jury.” Murray’s lawyer denies the report.
