  • Katherine Jackson Takes the Stand in Michael Jackson Trial

    Haley Velasco at omg!9 mths ago

    In the ongoing lawsuit surrounding Michael Jackson's death, it was finally time for the prosecution to take the stand on Friday.

    Katherine Jackson, the 83-year-old matriarch of the Jackson brood, stepped forward to testify against the promoters of Michael Jackson's "This Is It" 50-concert tour, for her suit against AEG Live LLC claiming they were negligent in hiring Dr. Conrad Murray, a choice that led to her son's death.

    "I want to know what happened to my son," she told jurors. "I leave the spotlight for my children. A lot of the things that have been said [here] are not the truth ... [It's hard] to listen to how sick my son was and nobody was trying to help him."

    Jackson died in his sleep, after Dr. Murray enabled him to take a deadly dose of the anesthetic Propofol on June 25, 2009. Murray is currently serving four years in prison for involuntary manslaughter.

    The King of Pop's mother claims she expressed her concerns about Michael's ability to perform 50 shows in such tight sequence as had been originally planned. "He couldn't do every other night like AEG wanted him to do at first," she said.

  • Diaper Duty Gets, Well, Dirty With Nick Lachey

    Nick Lachey is not afraid to get down and dirty when it comes to his son.

    The 98 Degrees frontman got his first taste of fatherhood on September 12, 2012, when he and his wife, Vanessa Minnillo, welcomed Camden John. Lachey, 39, already feels confident about certain aspects of his new role.

    "I change a wicked diaper," he tells omg! at the launch of the #PretzelLoveSongs campaign promoting the new Pretzel Bacon Cheeseburger at Wendy's. "I have never been afraid with a diaper change."

    But that wasn't always the case. The current host of NBC's "The Winner Is" laughed as he recalled a tough time at the beginning.

    "There was one early, early, early [diaper] change when he was doing it both ways and stuff was flying. We were trying to hold it all together," he said. " I think every parent has that story – until you learn what to anticipate and how to anticipate it, you are going to get caught occasionally."

    Lachey promised his diaper-changing skills have gotten much better these days, but it takes two to tango. Ever the sweetheart, Nick didn't shy away from giving his Vanessa a nod of approval for her skills with the Pampers.
