The long-dethroned King of Pop has withdrawn his application to give testimony in his London case via a video link from the U.S. The move comes just days after Jackson made the request, claiming an undisclosed, though seemingly bandage-cured, illness prevented him from making the trip across the pond.
"He has been cleared by his medical advisers to travel in two days' time," his lawyer, Robert Englehart, told London's High Court this morning.
Jackson is expected to fly to the U.K. over the weekend and will begin his testimony in the flesh—at least what's left of it—on Monday afternoon.
