Joe Jackson Blames AEG for Michael's Death

6/17/2010 1:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Dr. Conrad Murray had requested lifesaving equipment and back-up help for Michael Jackson from the promoter of the London concerts -- AEG -- but the company never came through, according to a new complaint filed by Joe Jackson.

TMZ broke the story -- Joe was gunning for AEG by filing complaints with the California Medical Board and another agency, alleging the concert promoter abused Jackson in a way that led to his death -- and he's just filed with the Medical Board.

Joe claims days before Jackson's death Murray had requested a heart resuscitation machine and a nurse in several e-mails making the request, but AEG never provided it.

According to the complaint, Joe is accusing AEG of co-opting Murray's medical judgment by enticing him with a huge salary -- in effect engaging in the "unlawful practice of corporate medicine."

Besides the CPR machine, Murray also asked for saline, catheters, needles and a gurney.

AEG and Murray had no comment.

A Gurney? Why?
That's odd



Joe is just going to blame the whole world. Sorry MJ fans but this is Michael Jacksons fault too...he needed help not drugs and everyone just gave in.

Is there no limit to Joe Jackson's greed???? Even in life, Michael cut him out of his will, had no rapport with him and accused Joe of mistreatment as a child. Joe has been living off the Michael Jackson gravy train since Michael was a child! Joe needs to stop this!

This is the proof that Murray shouldn't have given the drug, knowing he didn't have the equipment to help Michael when he needed it. Plus he should of said no to him and gotten him help!!!!!

ok, i officially now HATE this s*** bag. He will stop at nothing
in his greed for money. NOTHING. He should look in the flipping mirror
for who killed MJ, Joe was a proven child abuser which I am sure
contributed to MJ's later life, choices, and everything else that
contributed to his death. A combination of life time events all
contributed to his death, and Joe's contribution is NO less responsible
for the eventual outcome than anyone else. I Very badly want to see
some karma come joes way. Jerk.

I blame Joe for treating his kids like circus animals. What did he expect? They would all grow up to be well adjusted adults?

The man has blamed the Doctor, Katherine Jackson and now AEG. Maybe he needs to look in the mirror.

If this company did this than they are no better than Murray, and Joe Jackson should get them. If this doctor requested this and the company did nothing than they should be charged just like Murray. Don't know if Joe is telling the truth because I don't know him except whats on TMZ and other shows, but if this is true than the DA of California needs to prosecute this company just like Murray. All of it sounds like theres more to this story than just Murray. Hope and pray God gets them all for Michael's children and his mother.
