Michael Jackson's court battle took a bizarre turn after the judge presiding over the dispute between the late singer's family and concert firm AEG accepted evidence from a ghost.
Michael Jackson's ghost reportedly declared that his death was an accident, a court heard on

Randy Phillips of AEG told the court that the late singer's spirit revealed to Lionel Richie's ex Brenda that he had inadvertently killed himself, the Sun reported.
He told jurors at Los Angeles County Superior Court that Brenda called him to tell that she was in communications with Jackson, either through a medium or directly.
Phillips reportedly said, "She said Michael told her it wasn’t Dr Murray’s fault — that he had accidentally killed himself.”
Meanwhile, a Jackson family lawyer objected, calling it triple hearsay as Phillips was relaying a conversation with Brenda, who had spoken to a medium who allegedly contacted the King of Pop.
However, Judge Yvette Palazuelos is said to have 'let the testimony stand' nevertheless.
