Michael Jackson & Children — Emotional Home Videos Tug Heart Strings in Court

Michael Jackson
was a loving father who cared deeply for his 3 children … and they suffered an immeasurable loss when he passed away — at least that”s what Jackson family lawyers tried to show in court with MJ”s own candid home videos.

The videos — both shot by Michael — were played for the jury in the Jackson family”s wrongful death lawsuit against AEG.

The first was shot on Christmas Day in 2006 … when Prince was 9, Paris was 8, and Blanket was 4.

It”s pretty touching — Michael asks each of his children what they want to be when they grow up, and he really does sound like a caring father.

The other clip was shot years earlier — when Prince and Paris were both toddlers. It”s clear from the footage they both adore their dad, calling themselves “daddy”s baby.”
