LOS ANGELES (AP) - Michael Jackson's mother says she thought her son could do a series of comeback concerts, but not the way they were planned by a concert promoter.
Katherine Jackson told jurors Friday that she called the CEO of promoter AEG Live LLC to express her concerns before his death in June 2009.
She did not offer additional details.
The Jackson family matriarch tearfully described Friday finding out about her son's death. She is expected to be the final plaintiff's witness in her case against AEG Live, which is now in its 12th week.
Katherine Jackson also told the jury she had heard from her other children about concerns that Michael Jackson was abusing prescription medications, but he seemed fine when they tried to intervene.
AEG Live denies any wrongdoing.
