Janet Jackson along with her two sisters LaToya and Rebbie and mum and dad all attended day two of preliminary hearing against Dr Conrad Murray.
During day two a bodyguard told how Michael Jackson’s children walked into their father’s bedroom in the middle of his doctor’s doomed attempts to revive him.
Dr Conrad Murray insisted Prince Michael and Paris were bundled from the room after the star’s daughter burst into tears and screamed ‘Daddy’.
Jackson’s bodyguard, Alberto Alvarez, said the 50-year-old singer was lying lifeless on the bed with his eyes and mouth open as the doctor was carrying out CPR.
He said Dr Murray told him: ‘Don’t let them see their father like this.’
Mr Alvarez struggled to hold back tears as he told a court in Los Angeles that Dr Murray instructed him to remove a bag full of bottles from the singer’s bedside before calling for help.
He said he was also asked to hide an intravenous (IV) bag from its stand.
Prosecutors claim Dr Murray was attempting to hide the fact that he had injected Jackson with a fatal dose of the powerful hospital anaesthetic propofol on June 25, 2009.
Reliving the moment he first saw the singer’s body, Mr Alvarez, 34, said he froze at the sight of Jackson on the bed.
He said Dr Murray ‘was standing over him and he was giving him chest compressions with one hand’.
The bodyguard added that only after the doctor had scooped the bottles into a brown canvas bag was he told to call an ambulance.
