A Los Angeles jury has decided that concert promoter AEG Live did hire Conrad Murray, the doctor who administered the fatal dose of a powerful anesthetic that killed singer Michael Jackson, but that Murray was not unfit or incompetent “to perform the work for which he was hired for.” As a result, the jury unanimously determined that the company is not negligent in the death of the pop star and will not have to pay damages to Jackson’s family.

Young made the statement while at an airport baggage carrousel in Los Angeles after being asked if “a gay wrestler could be successful within the WWE.”
“Absolutely. Look at me. Ya know. I’m a WWE superstar and to be honest with you, I’ll tell you right now, I’m gay. And I’m happy. I’m very happy,” Young said in response to the question.
The revelation, which is not thought to be part of the wrestler’s onscreen character, apparently caught the cameraman off guard. He stumbled over his response.
“Man, that’s in … that’s … sorry. I’m kinda’ of flabbergasted man. I think … I didn’t know and obviously I think that’s just … I commend your bravery,” the cameraman said.
“I don’t think it matters. Does it matter? Does it matter to you?…Does it change what you think about me?” Young rhetorically asked after making the statement.
“Not an iota,” TMZ’s cameraman said. “In fact I commend you even more that you would share something so beautiful and personal with me.”
“We’re all adults. All sports are physical. When I come to work, I come to work,” Young said. “Business is business.”
‘Young, gay relationship.

Michael Jackson’s 16-year-old son’s bloodshot eyes welled up with tears Wednesday when he told a Los Angeles jury that when his father died in a hospital emergency room four years ago, the singer’s personal physician
simply turned to Jackson’s three children and said, “Sorry, kids, Dad’s dead.”
Michael Joseph Jackson Jr., known as Prince, was the first member of the Jackson family to take the stand in the Los Angeles Superior Court wrongful death and negligence suitthat his grandmother filed against concert promoter AEG Live. At the time of his death, Jackson, 50, was in the middle of rehearsals for his “This is It” comeback tour in London. The lawsuit alleges that AEG was responsible for hiring Dr. Conrad Murray, who was convicted in 2011 of involuntary manslaughter in Jackson’s death, as Jackson’s doctor.
Jackson’s eldest son remained composed as he spoke of the special relationship he and his siblings had with their father and described in detail the confusing days before the King of Pop died, and the impact of his death on the lives of his children.
“It will never be the same,” said the teen who lives with his grandmother, a cousin, and siblings in Calabasas, Calif. He talked about how challenging life has been for his 15-year-old sister, Paris, who is recovering in a Los Angeles hospital after a suicide attempt on June 5. He said his 11-year-old brother, Prince Michael Jackson, known as Blanket, “is so young he doesn’t realize what he lost” and that he and Paris no longer celebrate their birthdays.
“She was hit the hardest,” he said. “She was my dad’s princess. She is definitely dealing with it in her own way.”

“This was not the man I knew,” Karen Faye testified. “He was acting like a person I didn’t recognize.”
Faye, who did Jackson’s makeup and hair for 27 years, was the sixth witness called by lawyers for Michael Jackson’s mother and children in their wrongful death lawsuit against concert promoter AEG Live. She testified Thursday and will return to the stand Friday in a Los Angeles courtroom.
The Jacksons contend that AEG Live is liable in the pop icon’s June 25, 2009, death from an overdose of a surgical anesthetic because it negligently hired, retained or supervised the doctor treating him.
Michael Jackson’s brightest and darkest moments brought laughter and tears as Faye testified.
