“What does this have to do with the death of my son?” she asked Putnam.
The attorney also asked about Katherine Jackson about conversations she had with her son about prescription drug use.
She said she asked him about it when he lived in Las Vegas and he denied he was abusing prescription medications.
“I’m a mother, quite naturally he denied it,” she said. “He wouldn’t want me to think that.”
She said she was aware her son took medications for pain in his back and scalp after he sustained injuries over his career. She said she never saw signs that her son was abusing medications, including when she and several of her children went to the singer’s Neverland Ranch for an intervention.
Her son was fine but upset that they thought he had a problem.
Katherine Jackson began her testimony on Friday. She tearfully described learning about his death and told jurors that he had been her primary means of financial support throughout his life.
“Michael took care of me, my every need, my every want,” she said Friday. “He gave me everything.”
