Michael Jackson Appearance

Triggers Suit

5/20/2010 6:52 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Even in death, Michael Jackson generates lawsuits ... this time it involves a douchey clothing designer, a car museum and a phantom gun.


Photographer Stephen Winick claims he was brutally attacked by security guards hired by Christian Audigier of Ed Hardy fame during his 50th birthday party.  Michael Jackson attended the bash, which was thrown at the Petersen Automotive Museum in L.A.

In Winick's lawsuit, filed today in L.A. County Superior Court, he claims he innocently snapped a pic of Jackson, but Audigier was upset and wanted to delete the photo.  So Winick claims Audigier unleashed his guards, who then allegedly beat the crap out of Winick.

Winick says one of the guards yelled "gun, gun" to amp up the attack.

In addition to Audigier, Winick is suing Ed Hardy, the museum and the guards.  He wants unspecified damages.

To my understanding of this there's no inference to a lawsuit being initiated against Michael Jackson/MJFT. TMZ only referenced Michael Jackson due to his appearance at/connection to Audigiers 50th Bday bash.
Didn't Audigier supply Michael Jackson/MJ3 with thousands of $$ of free Ed Hardy label clothing?
And Michael Jackson supply Ed Hardy with alot of advertising?

I think Audigier was probably helping Michael Jackson hold his arm/hand up in the air. He was too weak to do that on his own anymore.
Living/just walking took so much/too much out of Michael Jackson. He was so frail and sickly looking.
