Janet Jackson Suits Up for Court Hearing

Janet Jackson

Janet Jackson was by her family’s side at the preliminary hearing for Dr. Conrad Murray, the man accused of killing her brother. The youngest Jackson put on a suit and tie, finishing the masculine look with slicked-back hair and sunglasses as she quickly entered the courthouse after her mother Katherine and sister La Toya.

The manslaughter trial preliminary hearing of Michael Jackson’s doctor began Tuesday in downtown Los Angeles. Prosecutors say Murray covered up evidence that he administered a fatal drug dose that led to the King of Pop’s death. The doctor is expected to claim that Jackson killed himself.

Despite the somber mood in court, Janet will return to what makes her happy, kicking off her largest world tour yet in Singapore on February 7. She will travel to 35 cities across the globe performing songs from her Number Ones album.
