Dionne Warwick cites 'injustice'
against Jackson



Dionne Warwick has defended Michael Jackson, calling his child molestation case a "complete injustice."

"I've watched him grow to become the icon that he is, and I wouldn't even consider believing the claims against him," the 63-year-old singer said.

Jackson has pleaded not guilty to seven counts of performing lewd or lascivious acts on a child under 14 and two counts of administering an intoxicating agent, reportedly wine, to get the boy to comply. He is free on $3 million bail.

"I think it's a complete injustice, the way it's (the trial) being done."

The Grammy-winning singer was scheduled to perform a concert late this week in Singapore.

Warwick's hits include "That's What Friends Are For," "I Say a Little Prayer," Walk on By" and "Do You Know the Way to San Jose?"
