Lawyers for Dr. Conrad Murray, Michael Jackson's doctor who was present at his death, will call out the singer's supposed cocaine habit in court, according to a report by News of the World.
Murray's attorneys will bring up reports from the 2003 child abuse investigation which noted traces of cocaine were found on the pop star's Calvin Klein briefs.
Jackson was eventually cleared of all child abuse charges. He died June 25, 2009, at age 50 from an overdose of sleep medication and painkillers.
Murray is charged with involuntary manslaughter in the singer's death. He allegedly gave Jackson lethal doses of the medication Propofol.
Opening statements in the trial are set for next week. See what other big move Murray's lawyers just made in the case after the jump.
Murray's lawyers are asking for a delay in the case to review new reports from the prosecution. The defense claims they just got the reports and need more time to examine them.
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Michael Pastor said Friday that he would consider the request.
Jury selection is set to resume this week.
