Entertainment News: Jackson's wrongful death trial starts today

Posted: Updated:

(CNN) - The wrongful death case Michael Jackson's family filed against concert promoter, AEG Live, starts today in Los Angeles. Jurors will be hearing what's likely to be months of testimony. They're to decide whether AEG Live owes the Jackson family billions of dollars for the pop star's 2009 death. The main issue is whether the company hired or supervised Dr. Conrad Murray. He was convicted of involuntary manslaughter. Jackson died from a combination of sedatives and the surgical anesthetic Murray said he used to help the entertainer sleep. AEG's lawyers say Jackson was responsible for his own demise and that his drug addiction led to a series of fatal choices.


(CNN) - Former basketball superstar Michael Jordan is off the market. Hundreds of guests watched the former Chicago Bulls star marry his girlfriend of five years, Yvette Prieto. The lavish wedding was Saturday in Palm Beach, Florida. Sports stars like Scottie Pippen, Patrick Ewing and Tiger Woods were there. Around two-thousand people are said to have attended the reception. This is Jordan's second marriage.


(CNN) - "Pain & Gain" worked its way to the top of the weekend box office. The film, starring Dwayne Johnson and Mark Wahlberg, earned the number one spot, with $20-million dollars in ticket sales. Last week's number one film, "Oblivion" dropped to second place. The film, starring Tom Cruise, picked up another $17.4 million dollars in ticket sales. "42," the Jackie Robinson biopic, slid into third, grossing another $10.7-million dollars in its third weekend in theaters. "Iron Man 3" isn't even out yet in the U.S., but it's already setting records overseas. It opened this weekend in 42 international markets, and took in a whopping $195.3 million dollars. The film opens stateside Friday.
