It was an emotional day on the stand for Michael Jackson's ex-wife Debbie Rowe yesterday.
Rowe testified for a second day in the Jackson family's wrongful death lawsuit, breaking down as she described her ex-husband’s habits when they were together, and her 15-year-old daughter's recent suicide attempt.
“Rowe mesmerized jurors talking about her life with the king of pop, including his journey into addiction, which she said started after this horrific accident in 1984 that burned Michael Jackson's scalp,” reports CNN’s Ted Rowlands. (WATCH TOP VIDEO)
“Munich is where Rowe testified she saw doctors administer doses of propofol to induce Jackson's sleep— the drug that eventually killed him.”
Rowe testified that “she told her boss, Jackson's dermatologist Arnie Klein, that she was worried that Jackson was addicted to Propofol.”
AEG Attorney Marvin Putnam says this testimony helped establish their case. The concert promoter is trying to prove that Jackson had a long history with prescription drug abuse.
“She let everyone know that people in Michael's life were worried about his propofol use as early as the late 80, early nineties,” Putnam says.
Criminal defense attorney, and Michael Jackson's former attorney, Tom Mesereau, disagrees and believes Rowe’s powerful testimony ended up helping the plaintiffs.
“I think she added a lot to the plaintiff's claim that AEG had every reason to know that he needed the right doctor to deal with these prescription drug issues.” (WATCH VIDEO)
The most striking moment in the courtroom yesterday was when Rowe spoke about how Jackson’s death affected their children, Paris Jackson in particular.
“"She's devastated, she tried to kill herself,” Rowe said. “She doesn’t feel she has a life anymore."
Mesereau believes the reference to Paris’s recent suicide attempt drew attention to the gravity of the loss of Michael Jackson to his children, who are suing along with their grandmother.
“I think in the end the jury will find that AEG assumed responsibility for Michael's physician, Conrad Murray,” Mesereau says.
“They had obligations to supervise him properly and failed to do so, and I think Debbie emphasized the tragic loss through these series of events.”
