Jackson cries in court
13:30 11 March 2005
Michael Jackson cried in court yesterday (10.03.05) as his accuser, Gavin Arvizo, took the stand and claimed, in shocking detail, how the star abused him.
Gavin, now 15, said he slept in the same bed as the superstar, was molested by him twice and was given alcohol in soft drink cans, which Jackson called 'Jesus Juice'.
He also claimed the eccentric singer told him how he should masturbate to stop him having the urge to "rape a girl".
Gavin also said he remembered being fondled by the singer under his underpants and said he had hazy memories of a further three incidents.
Gavin told the court: "He said if I didn't know how [to masturbate] he would do it for me. I said I didn't really want to. Then he said that it was okay, that it was natural.
"Then we were under the covers and I had his pyjamas on. He put his hands in my pants and started masturbating."
Earlier yesterday (10.03.05), Jackson arrived late to his child abuse trial in pyjamas - with his lawyers claiming he had been hospitalised with a bad back.
