Company staff knew Jackson wasn't well, claims Osbourne

Sharon Osbourne will testify in the Michael Jackson wrongful death trial, it has emerged.

The 60-year-old star has been called up as a witness and said she has information which will help the Jackson family's case against concert promoter AEG Live.

AEG Live have been accused of ignoring health concerns over Michael and hiring physician Dr. Conrad Murray, who has since been convicted of the involuntary manslaughter of the star.

Speaking on 'The Talk', she said: "There were people at that company who knew he was not well but didn't care.

"Whether he performed or not, they'd still make money. I had conversations with people who said exactly that".

The former 'X Factor' judge could be joined by the star's ex-wife Lisa Marie Presley, Diana Ross, Quincy Jones and Prince.

Although music blogger Dr. Funkenberry recently suggested that Prince will probably not testify.

He said: "Prince is so far down on the witness list, he will more than likely never get called.

"Michael's family are suing AEG for £26bn (€30.6bn) but the firm denies the charges".
