[b] I feared my kids would vanish in a hot air balloon: Jackson accuser’s mum[/b] Mon Apr 18, 6:05 PM ET The mother of Michael Jackson’s young molestation accuser claimed that she feared her children would be spirited away from the star’s Neverland Ranch in a hot air balloon. In some of the most bizarre testimony of Jackson’s frequently surreal trial, the woman revealed that she told police she feared her three kids would vanish from Neverland into California’s blue skies. “Did you tell the sheriff that you thought your children might disappear in a hot air balloon from Neverland?” Jackson’s lead lawyer Thomas Mesereau asked the woman under cross examination. “I made them aware” that this was one of a variety of ways in which aides to the pop star had allegedly threatened to make her children vanish, she replied during her fourth day on the stand of frequently bizarre testimony.

Mesereau persisted in exploring possible tales of fantasy by asking if she had ever said she was so poor that her children picked coins out of public fountains to help support the family. Again, she denied the claim. Source:
