AEG Ready to Fork Over $90,000 --- Today

7/31/2009 2:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

AEGUPDATE: TMZ has learned AEG has dropped off the $90,000 to the L.A. Police Foundation -- as promised.

We're told part of the money will go to build a memorial for fallen officers in front of the new police headquarters in downtown L.A.


AEG
is finally putting its money where its mouth is -- saying they will follow through with their promise to donate money raised at the Michael Jackson memorial to the L.A. Police Foundation.

The timing couldn't be more impeccable, considering we broke a story yesterday that the L.A. City Attorney was investigating AEG for not forking over the money.

According to the LA Times, the company plans to make a $90,000 donation today from money made on the sale of 18 suites for the July 7th memorial at the Staples Center.

As we first reported, the L.A. City Attorney is investigating AEG for holding out on the donation -- and they believe AEG should pay for sanitation, transportation, street services and LAPD protection expenses, an amount which is estimated to go into the 7 figures.

AEG had better fork over the $4 million it cost to throw their little shindig for MJ, that they will be SELLING the video of. They should definitely pay for the swat team that escorted the EMPTY casket from Forest Lawn to Staples.

The child molestation trial was in Santa Barbara County, not in LA. Sorry to be off topic, I just keep reading the comments on this thread saying that and referring to LA.

I'm glad AEG at least paid up as they promised they would.

That's happened to me, it's a word the robot doesn't like and the post won't go through to email. I had the devil of a time Sat. night deleting and editing until it finally went through, and there were no obvious words that should have caused moderation. By the time I could confirm the email and post everyone had moved on.

There's nothing like a little TMZ pressure and the threat of bad publicity to make AEG do the right thing. Though I'm sure AEG will be telling us they were planning to hand over the money along. Yeah right.

Della,
"Murray met the entertainer in 2006 when he and his three children moved to the gambling mecca.
Jackson subsequently offered him a full-time job as his personal physician for a series of comeback concerts in London; and in May, Murray closed practices in Las Vegas and Houston to take the position."

The pair met in Las Vegas in 2006, when Murray treated one of Jackson's children at the recommendation of one of Jackson's bodyguards.

It's a good start, provided the cheque clears. ... If they welch on the remainder, AEG will stand for something very different (than its full name) in the public perception. Kudos, TMZ.

Why is the money going towards a memorial when the city is BROKE? They can do that later when they have money. That $90k should go towards the funds LA is crying about they didn't have... and the CITY should make that statement ASAP.

LA is making themselves look worse and worse to Californians... and the world... for how they have handled this whole situation with MJ.

Someone should investigate THEM - and send them to a cohesiveness seminar or fifty. Nothing like going in 20 different directions at once. No wonder they are broke!

then I couldnt get u to respond to me anymore.
so i'm a little upset right now. u guys said u wouldnt post until late at nite which left me out in the cold and yeah it made me mad... so i don't know what to think. i'm not ignoring u. i have a few more things to finish up before i leave work for the day. and its busy and i'm by myself and all hell broke loose, so my mind is scattered so if u can respond to my questions and help me out a little. i would appreciate it.
