Sharon Osbourne (60) is ready to take the witness stand in the case where Michael Jackson’s family is suing concert promoter AEG Live.
Osbourne, known as a talent judge on TV and as a manager and wife of Ozzy Osbourne (64), is called as a witness on behalf of Jackson’s survivors.
The trial, in which the relatives blames AEG Live to have contributed to Michael Jackson’s death, started last Monday.
Jackson family requires no less than 40 billion from the concert promoter who they claim they neglected the king pop life-threatening health condition when the 2009 planned extensive concert series at London’s O2 Arena. The family believes that Osbourne can substantiate their claims.
Osbourne said in her TV show “The Talk” earlier this month that she has been in contact with people of AEG Live who confided that they knew how ill Jackson was.
– But they did not care, because it was business. They knew they would make money regardless of whether he performed or not, Osbourne said on television, adding that she would like to show up in court.
Now she gets the opportunity to just that. And during yesterday’s TV show informed her that there is the slightest problem for her.
Jackson family hold AEG responsible for having hired doctor Conrad Murray who is in prison – convicted of manslaughter.
