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.

I believe, based on what I know so far, that Murray is indeed directly responsible for MJ's death, and that he is morally responsible as well.

However, he simply has not been tried in a court of law, and therefore none of us can say whether he is legally guilty (or liable in a civil suit) - or not - at this point, and to argue otherwise is just plain silly, and equivalent to a lynch mob mentality.

This is unlike MJ's case where there actually was a final legal verdict of his being found not guilty "beyond a reasonable doubt."

Well it is awfully funny how this hit the news..if Jordan Chandler was telling the truth about Michael molesting him..which I highly doubt, I wonder why his dad just committed suicide on November 4th or 5th. His dad coereced that boy into lying for money..and that is a sad thing that they had to ruin a perfectly good human being for gain..and Dr Conrad Murry does not deserve a dome of that money..He killed Michael..and he should go to jail for it!

Debbie Looney Jordan Chandlers dad found dead from suicide.....This was one of the boys who accused Michael of molestation. Evan Chandler was found dead in his apartment on November 4th.

Ant, that is a good catch there. And I think there were other articles about this out at the time. What I think AEG is arguing is that they were going to hire Murray (sign the contract?) when the tour started, and begin paying him then. Up until then, he was Micheal's "personal physician" ... and maybe they are claiming it was on Michael to pay for his services up until the London engagements started. I

I had also read here or elsewhere that MJ was supposed to be paying Murray from the advance money AEG paid to MJ in the weeks prior to when the tour was to start. However, that is hearsay and speculation, and I do not even remember the source of that info or allegation - could be TMZ!

cindy brady, you said it well here, with "live your life like you have an audience" and "don't put yourself in harms way." Or we at least have to try to keep those things in mind, so as not bring more stress and hardships on ourselves. I agree with you, I wish MJ had thought more about appearances, but his Achille's Heel in that respect seemed to be that he just wasn't in touch with how everyday people really think about some things, and he was naive and had himself too isolated to really understand that, even when friends warned him, apparently. I think it finally must have sunk in during the trial, and so I think MJ was also despondent from great disillusionment, as well as the treachery and indignities, and more.

I'm oddly happy about Evan's death..I couldn't stop laughing when I heard the news. Who is next? Could be Sneddon..or maybe Bashir. I'd be glad either way.
