London: Lawyers are in fear that Michael Jackson`s children could be asked questions about their father`s sex life and eccentric behaviour, after a judge banned TV cameras from an LA Superior Court hearing.
The lawyers are worried that it will lead to a "digging the dirt" examination of the troubled star`s bizarre lifestyle - especially when son Paris, 16, and daughter Paris, 14, take the stand.
A source told the Mirror that the legal team representing the Jackson family feel that with the world not watching, the kids will get a rough ride and the defence counsel`s approach is likely to be far more aggressive.
The source said that there could be lots of questions about Michael`s child molestation court cases and how he behaved when he was on drugs.
Michael`s other son, Prince Michael ll, 11 - nicknamed Blanket - was just seven when his dad died at 50 in 2009 and may not be called to give evidence.
AEG live have been accused of negligently hiring Dr Conrad Murray - the personal medic sentenced to four years in 2011 for Michael`s involuntary manslaughter by administering the surgical anaesthetic Propofol .
The family, led by Michael`s mother Katherine, 82, also claimed that AEG tried to push the star into a tour, which he was not physically capable of handling.
