The boy accusing Michael Jackson of molesting him has testified he slept in the US singer’s bedroom where they watched internet pornography together.
Gavin Arvizo, 15, came face-to-face with the singer for the first time in court, as he took the witness stand.
The boy told the court that he once considered Mr Jackson his “best friend” and “the coolest guy in the world”.
Mr Jackson denies 10 charges including child abuse and false imprisonment. He could face a 21-year prison sentence.
Gavin, a cancer patient when he met Mr Jackson, was asked to identify the singer across the court room in Santa Maria, California.
He said Mr Jackson had suggested that he spend the night at the Neverland Ranch, and that his parents had agreed.
He went on to testify that they had looked at seven sexually explicit websites in the bedroom over a 15-30 minute period on the second night.
Gavin also told the court that Mr Jackson had coached him ahead of filming an episode used in the television documentary aired in 2003 that sparked the investigation.
In the video, Mr Jackson is seen holding hands with Gavin and nuzzling the boy.
“[Jackson] was like, “I’m going to put you in the movies and this is your audition,'” Gavin told the court.
“He said he wanted me to say that he pretty much cured me of cancer.”
Later he described how he felt when he was ill.
