Hollywood director Brett Ratner and actor Chris Tucker are expected to testify at Michael Jackson's child molestation trial.

The Rush Hour filmmaker and funnyman Tucker met Jackson's child accuser and his relatives before the Thriller superstar had even met the teenage boy.

Illinois newspaper Chicago Sun-Times reports Ratner and Tucker invited the accuser's family to spend time on the set of the crime caper in early 2001.

Tucker went on to fly the family back and forth between Miami, Florida and Jackson's Neverland Ranch in California in 2003, the place where the singer is alleged to have molested the youngster.

The movie stars are expected to brand the family were "gold-diggers", backing up Jackson's allegations.

Jackson's trial on 10 felony charges of child molestation, administering an intoxicating agent, and conspiracy involving allegations of child abduction, false imprisonment and extortion started in Santa Maria, California on Monday.
