Michael Jackson's property manager is offering an explanation for a 2003 memo, one that ordered the boy who's now accusing Jackson of molestation not to leave Neverland.
Joe Marcus told jurors today one reason for the memo was that the boy and his brother had driven Jackson's vehicles and he was concerned they'd drive out of the gate.
Marcus also says he thought a video rebutting a damaging documentary about Jackson was going to be filmed at Neverland, so he didn't want the boys to leave.
The testimony is meant to counter claims by the accuser's mother that Jackson conspired to hold the family hostage.
Marcus also admitted on the stand that he lied to investigators in 2003 when they asked him if he was aware Jackson had spent the night with boys. Today, he admitted that he knew that had happened.
