Janet Keeps Schtum

Janet Jackson (nee Arvizo) made yet another appearance on the witness stand, in Michael Jackson's trial yesterday, I honestly thought that we had seen the last of her!

In her final curtain call she cited attorney-client privilege, by refusing to say whether she was represented by a lawyer during the time period in which she and her children were allegedly held captive by Jackson.

Thomas Mesereau, for the defence, asked Janet if she had been represented by attorney Michael Manning from 2001 to 2004 re issues involving her divorce.

Janet said that Manning had helped her on several issues involving the divorce. Seemingly he worked for her for free; and that as a result she was, in her words, one of his low-priority clients.

Mesereau asked Janet if Manning was her attorney at the time of the alleged captivity, she asked:

"Is that attorney-client privilege?"

Mesereau dropped the question when she cited privilege.
