AEG Wants a Piece of the Action

7/22/2009 6:26 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

AEG AEG has filed legal papers asking for a heads up on all matters relating to the probate of Michael Jackson's estate.

The papers entitle AEG to receive all legal papers, including notices of court hearings, connected to the probate.

It's unclear if AEG is teeing up a financial claim against the estate.

An AEG rep says they have an interest in the probating of Jackson's will because "a vast majority" of the money the company will generate will go into the estate.

Stay tuned...

Fast forward....Murray will be charged for the Diprivan that led to his death....some other doctors will be taken down for feeding him prescriptions, under alias names, etc.

Now for you that don't work in the field.
There is a reason for the the cause of death not really Known!
It's what we at forensic call a flush play!
Think! If it was a drug over dose then AEG would of collected Long time ago!
Since it's in investigation as a manslaughter charge then its a murder! Not Over dose
Now if Michael was addicted to anything doctors under their own oath are to prevent patient from using the drug he/she is addicted to.With all the current deaths of celebrities related to medication drugs.The Drug Enforcement Agency has launched a full scale assault on any deaths related to medications or Doctor given drugs.

Some one did indeed lie about Michaels condition then. The question is who: a. The doctor who gave the physical or b. Murray and AEG. No one here is aruging that Michael wasnt addicted....we know this as fact. What I and many like me are saying is: There is no way AEG, and Doctor Conrad Murray could not have known Michaels condition. Why didnt they get him help? Instead (from where I sit) it seems like they tried to take advantage of him.

Number One an addict he may have been but withdrawls from narcotics , vicoden, soma, zanax Etc do not cause part of your body to go hot and the other cold, It does cause severe muscle pain, Naussia, Vomity , Dizzyness, sweats and in my case seizures, electrolite imbalances etc.(clean and free for 14 years now,) In my case I was 24 years old had never taken any drugs as a teenager and never drank,( Ihave been quiete way too long)
Had to have knee surgery and the doctor put me on Vicoden , Soma and Zanax, I did not take them as It was not hurting enough to take more than tylenol,on my checkup visit, he told me to take the meds he prescribed or he would no longer be able to see me , Naively I did as I was told week after week, until it was too late, Two years later this doctor died but there are so many many more out there. Doctors should be accountable for over prescribing PERIOD!!!!! the overprescibers are just legal drug pushers just as bad as the crack pusher on the street

Second not breathing and having a shallow heart beat is not cardiack arrest it is Respiratory arrest followed by cardiac arrest.

last with AEG I smell a rat, not sure where that ratfits but a rat none the less

-------------------------------------------

The cause of death is still going to be due to a drug overdose that made his heart stop beating. And then you will have the criminal side of it. As my above post states, Murray will be taken down criminally for administering it. Diprivin leaves the body very fast. It has a very short half life. So I'm sure they are doing very careful testing.

212. ... WHEN THAT BLK MAN SAID MJ HIRED HIM TO TALK TO AEG (AKA) AIG REMEMBER THEY CHANGE THEIR NAME AFTER PRES. OBAMA BAIL THEM OUT, THEY KNOW THEIR NAME IS SCANDALOUS ON MONEY., HOW DID THESE LAWYERS COME UP OUT OF HIS PAST
---------------------------
#212 Geez you're unintelligent. AEG LIVE stands for Anschultz Entertainment Group - a company privately owned by a self-made billionaire Phillip Anschutz whose listed in Forbes Magazine every year (they operate a music division which is a well-established and respected concert promotion firm that has produced some of the biggest acts out there with many offices in the states as well as internationally. They've presented tours for god knows how many artists over the years - Bon Jovi, Justin Timberlake, Tina Turner, The Spice Girls, Hannah Montana, Neil Diamond, The Spice Girls. They created Celine Dion's long-running Vegas show and the super popular annual Coachella Festival in California where Paul McCartney performed this year ..the list doesn't end actually). Company also owns or manages arenas like the Staples Center and a number of hockey or soccer teams, movie theaters as well as many other things. They aren't hurting for cash they need to steal from MJ's estate or plotting celebrity murders! They're operating a business. Its already be noted that 90% of their rehearsal footage (oh and taping artist video is quite common actually in the entertainment world - why wouldn't they have taped one the biggest entertainers in the world they had a joint business partnership with, wouldn't you??) will be going to the estate and only 10% will be retained by AEG.

AIG which #212 refers too is a completely different PUBLIC company that has no connection with AEG. Does anyone check some facts at all before making stupid comments? a simple search? read a bio...something!?.. it's not that hard actually.

You are 100% wrong. Hot and cold flashes and body parts is one of the biggest narcotic withdrawal symptons. I think drug rehab doctors know a bit more than you do. Just because you didn't get it, doesn't mean it's not a symptom. Do a simple google search and on every narcotic withdrawal list, it's right there.

Speaking of Larry King. Why do you think the Jackson's keep running on that show. The same reason that anyone involved in a controversary goes on that show. Not to be grilled with facts, as King is so inept. There sat Joe Jackson saying he wanted to help his son but couldn't get any access to him, but then all we keep hearing about is the great 60th wedding anniversary party that the whole family had a couple of months ago, that Michael was at with his children, Joe now also comes out with this meeting he had with MJ and AEG recently at a hotel, and even had Michael alone in a room consulting with him. Did Larry pick up on that Joe was lying about not seeing or having access to his son? LaToya and Tito go running to british gossip tabloids with all their accusations. Why? Because the british tabloids are the known trash of the world, especially News of the World that LaToya went running to, and made a big pay day off of. They know if they tried this in the States, someone might actually grill them about some facts. The whole Jackson clan are money seeking and grabbing leeches.

AEG is complicit in the death of Michael Jackson. They knew they had a problem on their hands and they propped him up to maximize their investment. Enabling and indeed contributing to his condition right into the grave. Somebody needs to do and investigative expose on the "born again" Phil Anschutz and at the very least examine the man's ethics. Qwest anyone? This guy (Anschutz) seems to have a knack for turning up at the wrong place.

AEG is so full of crap. The insurance took care of what they lost. They do not need to know anything about an estate. This is a family thing. I am sure they can and have made money from the video they keep showing of all the things they were doing to get ready for this concert. I guarantee he had done new songs for them during his practices which were all recorded, they will make millions off of Michael and the concert that will happen in England. That has not been cancelled.I am sure they made money off the memorial, guarantee there were charges for Staples being used for that.
LA has made money off Michael Jackson and the other Jackson's for years.. The Jackson pay major city and county taxes.
The diners, motels, gas stations all made money off this memorial and all the other events that have been put on by the Jacksons and the other entertainers that were in the memorial. I bet there were lots of money made by all the media, fans, entertainers, news, gossiper, All of these people spent major money in this city. Just so much greed , just get crazier and crazier. Michael will never be put to rest and I just feel sorry for those children. I bet no one has ask them what they want or where they want to be. Look at all the money that has been made from old recordings since he died and this will not stop no time soon. If AEG was really a good agent, they knew every move of Michael Jackson and all the doctors going in and out. I am not trusting what that supposely children's doctor either. She said to start with Yes I told him I could get those meds but "Michael you don't need these" Now she says I told him that was against the law. Now how was she going to get them when supposely they are to be used only in hospital and then with chain of command when receiving these drugs. Check the money trail, it will lead you to all the greedy folks.

People have been bashing Joe Jackson but he has been saying all along that something was up with AEG, especially with the way they were going to pay him, Michael always said that his dad was a genius and that's why he included him in his meerings with AEG until Randy Phillips shut him down. I think more will come out about AEG in the future.

THOSE ARE
MOMENTS WHEN
FATE IS
UNSEALED

NOTHING IS
IMPOSSIBLE AND
WE ARE HEALED

WE CAN SOAR
WE CAN FLY
WALK ON FIRE
NAVIGATE THE SKY

IN THE LIGHT
OF A
FLICKERING STAR

THERE IS
NO
DISTANCE
NOTHING IS FAR

THOSE ARE MOMENTS
OF INNOCENT GUILE

IN THE GLOW WE ARE
SUSPENDED AWILE

THOSE ARE MOMENTS
WHEN BABIES SMILE

“WHEN BABIES SMILE”
by MICHAEL JACKSON



KINGDOMS TOPPLE
LOSE THEIR GLASS.

CIVILIZATIONS
GRUMBLE
AGES PASS.

TURBULENT TEMPESTS
RAVAGE
THE SEAS.

VIOLENT KILLINGS.
DESPITE OUR
PLEAS.

BUT DEW DROPS
SPARKLE

WHEN
CHILDREN
PLAY.

TYRANTS CRY.
THERE IS NOTHING
TO SLAY.

FAIRIES DANCE AND
GOBLINS SING.

IN THE GARDEN WE
FROLIC A WHILE.

THOSE ARE THE
MOMENTS WHEN
BABIES SMILE.

By MICHAEL JACKSON


Engraved on MARBLE SLAB

Children of the world, we’ll do it
We’ll meet on endless shores
Making sandcastles and floating our boats
While people fight and defend their point of view
Forever putting on masks that are new
We’ll swing the tide of time and do it.

Children of the world, we’ll do it
With song and dance and innocent bliss
And the soft caress of a loving kiss
We’ll do it.

While traders trade and haggle their price
And politicians try so hard be so nice
We’ll meet on endless shores and floating our boats
We’ll do it.

While lawyers argue and doctors treat
Stockbrokers quote the price of meat
While preachers preach and ring the bell
Carpetbaggers with something to sell
We’ll sing and dance in innocent bliss.

With the soft caress of a loving kiss
We’ll do it
Meeting on endless shores
Making sandcastles and floating our boats
We’ll do it.

We’ll ride a rainbow, a cloud, a storm
Flying the wind, we’ll change our form
We’ll touch the stars, embrace the moon
We’ll break the barrier and be there soon

While architects plan their buildings high
And trade unions raise their hue and cry
While boardroom squabbles generate heat
And in secret places dealers meet
We’ll sing and dance in innocent bliss
With the soft caress of a loving kiss
We’ll do it.

While philosophers grapple and continue to tackle
Endless dilemmas of body and mind
Physicists wander, continue to ponder

Archacologists survey, continue to dig
Bygone treasure small and big
Psychologist probe, analyze the tears
Of hysterical notions, phobias, fears

While priests take confession
In a serious session
And people struggle
In the hustle and bustle
In the noise and din
Of the meaning of sin
We’ll touch the stars, embrace the moon
Break the barrier, arrive there soon
Ride the rainbow, the cloud, the storm
Flying the wind, changing the storm

Children of the world, we’ll do it
With song and dance and innocent bliss
The soft caress of a loving kiss
We’ll do it.
