London: Michael Jackon`s eldest son Prince has vowed to quash any claims of his dad being a child molester .

The 16-year-old is livid the singer`s past will be dragged up in the family`s 20-billion-pound lawsuit against concert promoters AEG, the Daily Star reported.

As part of the firm`s evidence, officials plan to bring up the 2005 court case during which the pop legend was accused of sexually abusing teenager Gavin Arvizo.

The `Thriller` star, who died aged 50 in 2009 of a drug overdose, was acquitted of all charges.

A family friend said that Prince is determined to take the stand to tell the world that the King of Pop was a normal father, who never acted inappropriately with children.
