London (ANI): Legendary singer Michael Jackson's family chef Kai Chase has opened up about the night of the singer's untimely death. "I had clutched Michael's children to my chest and we prayed, but they knew he'd gone," Kai said. The 40-year-old chef said that the children were excited about going to London to see their dad perform at his greatest pop comeback in years.
But at 12.15pm on June 25, 2009, the King of Pop's three children were shocked to see their father''s untimely death. "It was as if a hammer had smashed the sun in and everything turned black," Kai said in an interview. Paris and Prince ran burst into Jackson's bedroom and witnessed Doctor Conrad Murray performing emergency resuscitation on him.
And during the 15 minutes before the children were taken out and the paramedics arrived, Kai protected them from the scenes around them. "All three children ran to me, crying hysterically. Prince was shouting, ''Dad, Dad, what's wrong with my dad?'' while Paris screamed, ''Daddy, Daddy, Daddy,'' over and over," Kai said. "I clutched them to my chest and got them to hold hands with me in a circle. Then I said, ''Pray with me, all pray with me,'' and we prayed aloud, asking God for a miracle," she added.
"We said, ''Dear God, keep Daddy safe, make this okay.'' But I knew - and I think they knew - that he was dead," she further said. Kai was the personal chef of the Jackson family in their rented Holmby Hills mansion in Los Angeles for four months before Jackson died, reports The Sun.
Kai said she saw Michael get increasingly tired in the last few weeks before he died. "There were a lot of people behind the scenes - business types - putting pressure on him, I think," Kai said. "He looked tired and the training was hard - but he still found endless energy for the children," she added.
