In a suit filed against concert promoter AEG Live over its alleged role in Michael Jackson's death, Jackson's son, Prince, took the witness stand Wednesday. According to CNN, he told the jury that after phone calls between Jackson and AEG Live executives, Jackson would often hang up the phone crying.

The 16-year-old told the courtroom, "After he got off the phone, he would cry. He would say 'They're going to kill me, they're going to kill me.'"

Prince also revealed how his very last conversation with his father went: Prince called Jackson, who was at his last rehearsal, to inform him that AEG Live CEO Randy Phillips was at their home looking for Jackson. Jackson told his son to "offer Phillips food and drink."

Since the start of the trial earlier this year, the Jackson family has been involved with a fair amount of controversy. In May, famed choreographer Wade Robson claimed that he was sexually abused by Michael Jackson as a child. And earlier this month, Jackson's 15-year-old daughter, Paris, was rushed to the hospital after an alleged suicide attempt.

Paris is not able to testify because of her hospitalization for psychiatric abuse. The trial against AEG is expected to last through the end of August.
