Michael Jackson's mum, Katherine, testified in court saying that her son was "sick" and "being pressured" while preparing for his 50-date comeback tour.

The 83-year-old alleged that promoter AEG Live LLC failed to give the late pop star proper medical attention in his last days, the Sun reported.

An LA court has been told that the King of Pop, who died aged 50 after personal physician Conrad Murray gave him an overdose of an anesthetic ropofol in 2009, had turned up for rehearsals incoherent and psychologically troubled.

Katherine said that her son was being pressured and was sick, but nobody called the doctor.

She also claimed that Michael needed another doctor, an outside doctor, and not Dr Murray. (ANI)
