AEG to Murray: Go Pound Sand

11/17/2009 10:02 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

AEG will not pay Michael Jackson's troubled doctor a penny, sources tell TMZ.

AEG to Murray: Go Pound Sand

As we first reported, Dr. Conrad Murray may sue AEG for $300,000 -- the money he claims he's entitled to under a contract he signed with AEG to provide MJ with medical services. But sources connected with AEG tell TMZ the contract was never signed.

We're told a contract was drafted but it required three signatures -- AEG, Michael Jackson and Dr. Conrad Murray. Sources say Dr. Murray signed the contract and sent it to AEG but neither AEG nor MJ ever signed it.

The contract, we're told, also said it expressly hinged on Jackson signing.

Sources say AEG is drawing a hard line. They will not pay Murray a penny.

AEG would be entitled to an offset, a counterclaim, for killing the Golden Goose they were scurrying around so close behind.

They were in it for the money    

Actually Jordy had his pad in 'The village' in New York. NO! Jordy did not live with Evan. Evan only moved there less than 2 years ago. Evan almost killed Jordy year and a half or so ago. Jordy had a Restraining Order on his father, and there were lawsuits filed. It was supposed to go to trial pretty soon and I think Evan could have gone to prison because he went after Jordy with training weights, think they were 15 pound hand weights.

The of innocence being considered innocent until proven guilty is a legal right that the accused in criminal trials has in many modern countries. ...

Geez, TMZ is getting tons of money for these stories. The hits to their website (MJ stories) is insane. Looks like Michael Jackson is feeding and supporting their families too.

Good god! How is it they get all this stuff? HUM, makes me wonder? How they hell did they get a camera in the Las Vegas - Murray case the other day. HUM?

RIP, Michael Jackson

I agree with both of you. There was obviously an implied or verbal contract here, even if the written one wasn't signed.

Murray gave up his practice to "tend" to MJ exclusively in reliance on at least an oral agreement, that much can be clearly inferred. The fact that he was given such exclusive access to him daily (and nightly) to perform medical services also goes to prove that. Ao, legal consideration was performed on the part of Murray, but the consideration he was to receive was not.

And, moreover, the fact that Murray was supposed to be paid $150,000.00 per month does not seem to be in dispute, though who was responsible for paying that is somewhat a bone of contention. I remember reading that MJ was to pay him out of monies he was advanced from AEG before the tour actually started, but don't know if that is correct.

That said, if Murray was actual agreeing to perform illegal services, then a judge could find that even a clearly valid oral contract would not be enforceable as a matter of public policy.

29. 23. Even I know this is b*sh*t. If he rendered his services he should be paid. They can turn around and sue for malpractice, but they still should pay the bill.

Dr. Murray, you should have WALKED after they didn't give you your first $150,000. DUMB - A$$

As much as I hate to agree with you, I do. Frankly, Murray has NOT been charged - convicted of anything. A contract is a contract.

The point is he admitted to giving Michael the injections that killed him that night.. so when you admit to a crime how can u turn aound and say he's innioncent? He "ADMITED TO IT" there is a difference..Michael never Admited to Molesting those boys" he always stated he never did anywrong doing..And you can bring up MArtin Bashire if you like but anyone who has done anykind of research knows Bashire manipulated the footage.. yea MJ said what he siad but there was more to that statemnt but of couse it was cut out..sad excuse for media journalism I have ever seen.. There you go

39. I have to seriously agree with number 2 that is probally one of the better posts I have read on any MJ forum.

That said what irk's me the most is the double standard when MJ went to trial all his fans said he is innocent yet with Doctor Murray he is guilty.

Sorry folkas you can;t have it both ways......everyone is innocent till proven guilty.....get over it.

What I find funny about this is MJ was found NOT guilty by a court of law and EVERYONE still says he is guilty...So remember that statement INNOCENT TILL PROVEN GUILTY......MJ went to trial found not guilty so he is INNOCENT. I suggest you practice what you preach!!!

Too bad people some didn't give MJ this right..To this day people are still convicting him even though in a court of law he was found not guilty. I guess the courts are only creditable if they see things your (many people) way. Talk about double standards.

Praise the Lord!

Dear sweet Michael never intended to pay that jerk a dime, until Murray proved his competency! Well...we know the out come of that. Smart thinking Michael!

Murray won't receive a dime, maybe some time though!

Arrest this clown, already!

VIVA CHILE    

I can not believe that asking such money for murder, Michael's life is priceless ... not someone like him.

Perhaps he wants his money as a murderers for request.

Conrad Murray rot in hell


Dr. asesino... perdón quise decir Murray

No puedo creer que este tipo este pidiendo dinero por asesinarlo, la vida
de Michael no tiene precio... no alguien como el.

Quizás el pide su dinero como un asesinos por encargo.

Conrad Murray te pudrirás en el infierno.


MICHAEL I MISS YOU, I NEED YOU, I WILL LOVE YOU FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE.


JUSTICE FOR MICHAEL...NOW
