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.

Yes, it was a travesty. Watching the slow and steady destruction of a human being (emotionally and physically) over 25 years time. That's what I feel I did with Michael. I can only imagine the pain of those who actually knew him personally.



Cathy, you mentioned Teresa Gonsalves & I read this(not the book) but I read this as part of a magazine article recently here online. That was one of the most touching stories wasn't it? Ugh! I didn't hear the part about E.Taylor making fun of him. Nice friend! Something has always struck me about her as perhaps not always 'genuine' though. I was rather convinced though that she was loyal to MJ. That's sad to think she would do that. Seriously, what MUST Katherine have thought was going on in her sons mind? As much as I loved MJ, I was sometimes at a loss as well. Like.....where did he go? Thanks for sharing this on the board. I love reading this kind of stuff:)



LOL! I just read your post....iron lung machine...too funny!



I'm off to bed as well. Good night!

Any more questions, you can backtrack & read them yourself because you've clearly missed my point. If your looking for a schoolyard catfight, look somewhere else.

You don't have to resort to your
childish insults just cos someone
doesn't agree with you about AEG.
YES there IS proof Phillips contradicting
himself but if you want to
find it you go look for it. I'm not
doing your homework for you. It's
already been shown on these treads
enough times as well as on YouTube
as you d@mn well know, so stop playing coy.
You're hear for one purpose only and that
is to defend Phillips and AEG.
Well I'm here for Michael Jackson.



Thanks Unknown for the following



188. AEG is a very large corporation that will lie and cheat just like BP. These companies have millions or billions to lose. They are not about to confess to any wrong doing. There acting ability gets them an Oscar. They must be convincing they get paid a LARGE amount of money to have you and everyone else believe them. Where is Dr. Tohme Tohme? How about Nanny Grace? Do we really know for sure that these people have not been paid off to keep there mouths shut? They know everything...

AEG handles the biggest acts in the world and owns a lot of sports tams. Why is it that NONE of them have EVER had a problem with them....but some want to believe that they were involved in Michael's death. It's ridiculous.

I don't give a **** if Murray asked for that stuff..he didn't have it and Michael died..he's an idiot..."money talks and brains walk"...as for Joe..I can't tell if he wants justice for his son or if he just wants money..if it's about money karma will get him!

Joe need to get a life and understand that MJ didn't want him to have any of his estate. What a jerk.

with murdering murray's big pr spin going full blast an example is lots of pics at mj's grave. another example is of him helping someone on a plane. why hasn't murdering murray explained publicly how he is paying for his attorney? why hasn't the attorney stated for the record who is paying his fee? that would help show his client is not acting in conspircy with AEG. To stop the conspiracy rumors that would be the intelligent thing to do YET MURDERING MURRAY AND HIS S***BAG ATTY ARE SILENT ON WHO IS FOOTING MURRAY'S BILL. under oath in his child support case murdering murray stated his income and he certainly could not afford an attorney on that income. did murdering murray's attorney take the case pro bono? no cause he wouldn't be able to pay for all the experts that he will need to defend murdering murray. WHO IS PAYING FOR MURDERING MURRAY'S LEGAL EAGLE? ANY IDEAS PEOPLE?

Stop Condemning the old man for christ sake.You all going to believe TMZ this two penny lying media piece of **** all the time. Start thinking out of the box for a change. Who is to say that the old man is after money???? For people that stopped getting envolved with anything regarding Michael Jackson from 2005 onwards you ain't know ****!!! That old man was there for his son each and every day of that f..ing court case. If it was your son that died suddenly over night would you not be concerned what really happened. And don't come with the C. Murray story bull****, this goes deeper than that!! And if you think that that will is authentic think again. MJ was nowhere near the place to sign that will in 2002! MJ and his father have worked things out long ago between each other so much so that he even started to credit his name when he made speeches. You all are so into this media **** that you don't know crap from reality, and that was always the case throughout the whole of MJ life. Drug addict, think again, you are all free to look at the autopsy report and it clearly shows the only drugs were PROPOFOL AND SOMETHING SIMILAR TO ATIVAN. Lots of people take Ativan on a every day basis, I bet some of you do. These are not the kind of drugs you are all implying that Michael took all his life. Michael Jackson suffered from insomnia, sure some of you might have that problem, I have it sometimes and it is awful and I can imagine how a permanent Insomniac must feel. The Man was coherent at all times, intelligent in his speeches, performances, with his kids, u really think a drug addict could do this. I know real drug addicts and they cannot do **** for themselves. Stop the bashing when U don't want to accept the truth or know **** about people. You all sound so stupid in your constant assumptions as if you all were sitting right next to Michael Jackson to witness all of it! Typical human malicious nature. The fact remains that the whole death thing sucks left right center any blind person can see that, no pun intended, if you really want to be able to comment with facts and knowledge than start from scratch, which brings you back to 25th June 2009 and check out all the ****ed up confusing stories that came along. One CONTRADICTION AFTER THE NEXT, so many that nothing is making any sense anymore. Why do you all think has it gone so quiet for all these months??? You hear nothing, and I mean NOTHING on any major news channels, the same ones that run him down all these years have gone totally stumm!!! Even Dr. Murray is getting of lightly by not being harassed by any media, after all he is the one that eliminated Michael Jackson with the powerful overdoses, the court appearances are not being broadcast at all, one has to look hard to find anything on them. U find this normal especially since the Media covered his death for almost 5 weeks non stop in the beginning. He was after all THE MOST WELL KNOWN, THE MOST TALKED ABOUT THE MOST HUNTED CELEBRITY IN THE WORLD!!! And all you get is these constant ****ty pieces of crap thrown at you by TMZ. Joe Jackson got all the reasons in the world to check out AEG besides what you hear from them lately????

To Valery No. 230



Had Michael Jackson handled his business in less controversial manner during the course of the later years of his career, he could have recording ever so often and performed one or two concerts ever so often without being financially strained and overly stressed out



FINANCIAL PROBLEMS???? BULLCRAP!! In 2005 Tom Messerau estimated the ATV CATALOGUE TO BE WROTH 5 BILLIONS DOLLARS!!! (that in 2005) Michael Jackson receives 80 Million Dollars per year in Royalties from this catalogue alone. He has other business ventures all over the world. (wikipedia) This is why his sudden death immediately after the last day of his rehearsals ain't making no sense. There was NEVER EVER ANY FINANCIAL PROBLEM AND NO HE WAS NOT BROKE ALL OF THIS CRAP INFORMATION IS THROWN AT US TO REDIRECT THE REAL TRUTH.



TO FAN no. 231



IT IS TIME FOR YOU TO SHUT YOUR REPETITIVE MOUTH, U ARE SO BORING WITH YOUR CHEWED OVER AND SPIT OUT OLD CRAPPY COMMENTS. U OBVIOUSLY CANNOT SEE HOW UNINTELLIGENT YOU SOUND JUST LIKE SO MANY OF THESE ROBOTIC MORONS ON HERE THAT ARE JUST SLAVES TO TMZ AND THE LIKES OF THE TWO PENNY CRAP NEWS STATIONS.



TO MARY NO. 188



AT LEAST SOMEBODY ON HERE GOT SOME BRAINS AND CAN SEE THROUGH THIS BULL.



TO ALL THE REMAINING COMMENTERS



STOP BELIEVING ALL THE CRAP YOU READ START USING YOUR OWN BRAINS SOMETIMES AND DO YOUR OWN RESEARCHES USING REPUTABLE, RELIABLE AND INFORMATIVE SOURCES. THIS HERE TMZ AND SO MANY OTHERS LIKE THIS GOSSIP TRASHING BASHING MEDIA CRAP WILL FUSS OUT YOUR BRAINPOWER ONE DAY AND ALL YOU ARE LEFT WITH IS A BUNDLE OF STRAW! YOU ARE NORMAL EVERYDAY PEOPLE START THINKING WITH YOUR NORMAL EVERY DAY BRAIN, DO YOU REALLY TAKE THIS **** WE ARE BEING FED WITH FOR REAL????

This is something off topic. This MJ picture really showed him looked so washed out. The stress really took a toll on his life. With all the makeup, he still looked so tired & just not a very pleasant look. RIP Michael.

LOL! Yes, I'd like a CPR machine please, and a ventilator, and an iron lung machine while you're at it. Hell, throw in a hyperbaric chamber. ;)

michael cannot sleep and if ever michael was a drug addict it is because of the american media and the american haters who crucified him when he was alive and still keep on crucifying him even in death...The american media and haters got blood in their hands for michael's demise. I bet you probably would have killed yourself a long time ago if you have to go through what michael had gone through. The american haters and media are the criminals. It was the american media and haters who drove michael to drugs if ever he was a drug addict. Can't blame him if he did. Hard enough to be humiliated but to be humiliated in public is even worst. I dare the haters if they would not go into drugs or kill themselves or go loony
