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...

I am a little surprised that AEG can do this. I thought only the heirs of the decedent, beneficiaries who are mentioned in the will, and proposed executors are entitled to receive court notices and copies of filing. This will be interesting to see if the probate judge allows this. I suppose that AEG has an interest since they were the "This is it" tour promotors. They probably will eventually owe money to the estate or have a claim against the estate. Just because they have filed a request does not mean it will be granted. I am sure the executors can object.

AEG don't you have enough blood on your hands??? Any attorneys out there??? It may be time for us (MJ's wonderful, world-wide fan base) to consider a class action civil suit against AEG. Any legal eagles out there to help us with a wrongful death suit????

Ok I thought I read somewhere that AEG's ins policy on Michael only covered overdose. Something's rotten in the state of Denmark for sure. I think they want to see how much money they stand to make now that they've killed him. A@@holes !! I hope they all fry !!!

i don't think Michael died of aids.. Michael was a dancer. He was always thin. Don't forge that. Look back at all pictures and footage of him. He always had a lithe dancer's body. You also didn't know if it was ever actually him in public though. No one knows for sure.

AEG charged the media $50,000 to use the risers at the memorial service (this was reported in the news after the memorial), so don't feel sorry for them. From the beginning, I always thought they may have had a hand in this. Watch for others to emerge.
