Michael Jackson’s parents put on a united front to attend Conrad Murray’s medical license review hearing on Monday, just days after Joe accused his wife Katherine of failing to step in and help her famous son in the run-up to his death.
Joe Jackson blasted his spouse in an interview with British tabloid the News of the World over the weekend, claiming Katherine could have done more to prevent the Thriller hitmaker spiralling into prescription drug addiction before his tragic passing last year.

Joe also revealed he urged her to talk to Michael about his problems and she refused.

Katherine’s lawyers blasted Joe over the claims – but the pair put their problems behind them for the day on Monday to attend a court hearing in Los Angeles, according to TMZ.com.

In court, they heard that Murray, who stands accused of administering the anaesthetic Propofol which killed their son, will be allowed to continue practicing medicine in California – and found out that a preliminary trial date to hear the involuntary manslaughter charge against the doctor was set for 23 August.

Murray pleaded not guilty to the charge in February.
