MJ's Dad: AEG Has Blood On Its Hands

6/18/2010 7:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

AEG put such pressure on Michael Jackson to perform for his London concerts, they effectively forced Dr. Conrad Murray to heavily sedate the singer so he could get rest, which ultimately led to his death ... this according to documents filed with the California Medical Board and obtained by CNN.


According to the 169-page complaint, filed by attorney Brian Oxman on behalf of Joe Jackson, Michael had only sporadically attended rehearsals for the show, leading to a showdown with Michael Jackson on June 18 in which an AEG exec allegedly threatened to "pull the plug" on Jackson's rented home and fire Dr. Murray.

The complaint alleges Murray -- who was allegedly promised $150,000 a month by AEG --  immediately began fueling Jackson with heavy sedatives, including Valium, Ativan, Versed and Propofol so the singer could sleep. 

As we first reported, Murray gave Jackson Propofol virtually every night for six weeks -- until Michael died.

The complaint alleges AEG knew the dangers of Murray's treatment but ordered full steam ahead.  And, according to the complaint, AEG turned a blind eye to Murray's request for life saving equipment. 

The complaint claims AEG was effectively practicing medicine without a license, by forcing Murray to take radical medical steps to protect the show.

The complaint claims, "Had AEG not violated California law and fulfilled its promise to provide Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation equipment and a nurse, Michael Jackson would not have died on June 25th."

Sigh, When are these people going to stop blaming other people. IT WAS MICHAEL JACKSON'S FAULT. End of story. He was a drug addict. He killed himself.

Michael Jerkson was a drug addict. Just a matter of time before he put on his horns and carried a burning pitchfork.

And if Dr. Murray had followed medical ethics, it wouldn't have mattered what AEG wanted - he wouldn't have given Michael all those sedatives. And again, no one put a gun to Michael's head and forced him to swallow all those meds - HE made the choice. But of course, Joe Jackson wouldn't know facts if they hit him right in the face. Which, come to think of it, someone should definitely do!

# 2 (David) - I completely agree with you. Michael Jackson was a tickin' time bomb. He knew what he was getting into and it was just a matter of time for him to kick the bucket.

# 5 (Trish) - You're funny! And spot on!

I gott say that is a great angle for Joe to pursue. If he can find some kind of do***entation or have Dr. Murray rat out AEG he may just have a case. AEG never paid Dr. Murray because do***ents were not signed so they washed there hands........would be interesting if Doctor Murray recieved direction from AEG....

So you mean to tell me AEG knew he was getting propofal. AEG should be sued and charged right along with Murray. Its hard to believe they would allow this to go on. MJ wasnt in his right mind and somebody should have stepped up and got him help . I hope Joe does sue these idiots. Im not much of a Joe fan but seems he trying to blame everyone but himself for MJ tormented life. I feel alot of MJ problems in his life was drug addiction and childhood issues. RIP Michael..
