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.

I can see Audigier having some pretty tough bodyguards. I can see Audigier being protective of Michael too. But to bring Michael as the headline for this story, when it was Audigier's guards and Audigier (and Ed Hardy-- bleek) that are the ones being sued, NOT Michael, TMZ is going down another tacky road on this story.



TMZ please bring your standards back up. Don't sensationalize stories like this. Please. You are better than that. Save it for LiLo.

1. These people that regardless of the fact that MJ was a pedophile worship him and look the other way on the expense of little boys are direct evidence, that the decay of our society is on full force and in overdrive.

If it took the case against Michael Jackson to let you know that our society is in decay, You really need to have some other outlets in your life.



2. When pedophiles get worshiped there is no coming back from this. We can all go on with our lives, pretend nothing is wrong ad hope for a better tomorrow, but truth is, there is none and it is all over.

I know what you mean. People still love and adore Elvis Presley to this very day.



3. Prepare for Jesus second coming, and be at peace with the reality of where we are headed.



When Jesus returns the dead in Christ shall rise first (this will include Michael Jackson) and those who remain (this includes everyone who accepted Christ) will be caught up to me HIM in the air. Then shall we ever be with the Lord! The Believer's hope rest soley in Christ. Everyone else needs to be prepared for come what may.




4. Anyone touching an innocent child the wrong way needs to DIE, and anyone supporting such a person is hollow and dead already.

If any man(or woman) be in Christ Jesus he is a new person! Christ came into the world so that we may life and have it more abundantly! He who believes in Christ shall live even though he dies!



5. If anyone touched any of my boys that person would be well off if thew police caught him first, since we in our court system do not really punish such atrocity.



That’s exactly what I've been saying all along. One of the parent’s should have kicked MJ’s ass. However, not one of them tried to do it.



6. If I caught that person my instanta castrata surgeries would be the newest hit among pedophile prevention circles. I need no police or justice system, just a surgical knife, no propofol in the world would get MJ out of that one.



Again dawg, that’s what I've been saying all along. The parent should have messed MJ up! The parent should have attempted to burn down his ranch literally. Mr. Chandler kills himself 15 years or so later.



7. Well, he is lucky, too late for him. But anyone out there, who has kids, GOD FORBID, but if someone touches your son, YOU ACT like a man not a mouse, fight for your kids, NONE of that court nonsense.



You are absolutely right! Yet the parents all chose to go the legal route. I would have taken every opportunity to knock the snot out of MJ if it were my child.



8. But for the record I am against the death penalty. As God has shown us beautifully in this case, that if God wants you dead, YOU are DEAD.



If you are talking about Jehovah the Father, He is the God of the living. What happened to MJ is mankind’s inhumanity towards mankind. God played no role in MJ's demise. God through his Son Jesus, gives us everything we need. Its up to us how we use it.

9. When MJ was running around with his little THIS IS IT banner, he did not even KNOW, that GOD was having it hang right behind his back letting him know of his fate....poetic justice.



I beg to differ. Since MJ was now Christian, and had a personal relationship with God, Michael knew his fate. Remember how he would always say “someone is out to get me” or “they are trying to kill me.” He’s not talking about God. He’s talking about those around him. Yet even in the film “this is it”, MJ is speaking in LOVE to his staffers and dancers. MJ is blessing all those around him throughout rehearsal. Also, in the film while performing Black or White, Michael is wearing a long black jacket that has 3 Crosses on it. One large Cross on his back and one smaller Cross at the bottom on both sides of the coat. (one for the Father, one for the Son, and one for the Holy Spirit) Only a sinner saved by grace like “me” would interpret this!

to Xanten:



Also, Michael's jacket could be interpreted as Christ dying on a cross between two thieves. one thief mocks Jesus. The other thief asks Jesus to remember him when HE (Jesus) enters into HIS kingdom. I can't speak for anyone else, but I’m the thief that wants to be remembered by the Lord. Who do you want to remember you?

121. So glad that pedophile s*** is rotting in hell.
Kids are safe, including his own.I'm sure one day as his kids get older they will remember being molested by there father.
Kids don't remember until there older...they will.
He was nothing but a gay junkie burning in hell.

Its sad what your family has done to you. May you find the peace and healing that you obvisouly need. As for burning in hell: if you don't change your ways, hell has been prepared for the self righteous like youself. you do not have a heaven nor a hell to place Michael jackson into.

I guess I won't be buying Ed Hardy clothing any time soon. This is the same guy Audigier that put up a huge sign saying goodbye to Michael at his memorial service with his name on the sign along with a picture of HIMSELF. He also sent a large floral arrangement to promote HIMSELF. TMZ you know you have the pictures of the floral arrangement and sign from the memorial service, please post them on this article so everyone can see what a d***he Audigier really is/was.
