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."

@Andie...have a nice weekend



"Me sitting up in the clouds and you are all alone
The time might come around when you’d be moving on
I’d turn it all around and try to get back down to my baby girl
Can’t stand to see nobody kissing, touching her
Couldn’t take nobody loving you the way we were
What good would Heaven be
If the angels come for me I’d tell them no"

VickiC...Get your facts straight BEFORE speaking about Michael Jackson. Michael DID NOT take any drugs by mouth that killed him. He was addicted to pain killers, but he was given the sedatives to sleep. He was a severe insomniac. Murray admistered sedatives at 1:30 am, 2:30, am, 3:00 am, 5:00 am, 7:30 am, and finally 10;40 am. YOU tell me how a Dr. could administer this many drugs thru an I.V. and justify his own innocence. Michael had enough drugs in him to not only make him sleep but kill an elephant BEFORE the PROPOFOL which was given at 10:40 am. There is nO WAY that he was not asleep fter the first few dosages..He was MURDERED and CONRAD was paid to do it! Check it out for yourself at: http://abcnews.go.com/Entertainment/MichaelJackson/story?id=8405922

THIS IS ALL A SET UP. PUBLIC ENEMY SAID "DON'T BELIEVE THE HYPE"!!! MJ IS EITHER ONE OF TWO THINGS--



(1.) DEAD: CAUSED BY THE GREED OF OTHERS, BECAUSE OF HIS TALENT, AND GENEROSITY. AND BY PEOPLE WHO DID NOT HAVE A CARE IN THE WORLD FOR HIS LIFE,



OR



(2.) HIDING: IN SOME REMOTE AREA OF THE WORLD & FINALLY AT PEACE.



END OF STORY! MJ DOESN'T OWE ANYONE AN EXPLANATION ABOUT HIS DESIRE TO BE UNSEEN ... BUT THERE ARE CLUES, EITHER WAY (DEAD OR ALIVE)



THE REST OF THESE ACCUSATIONS AND ALLEGATIONS ARE JUST FODDER FOR THE FOOLISH!! WAKE UP PEOPLE AND SEEK THE TRUTH!!!

Joe may know more than you think. Everybody else is trying to steal MJJ's money, so why shoudn't Joe be awarded something. Those children were not totally screwed up by Joe's heavy hand. And as we can see, Michael may have been known as the target by Joe, but it seems that he turned out to be the smartest, most popular and the richest.



We don't know if the medicine was tampered with and the poor Doctor was set up. Money is money and MJJ fired that guy for a reason.



I think MJJ was either trying to take pressure off Katherine by letting those guys rule his estate, or maybe he was talked into it.



When it comes to money, the people we trust can be quite damning, just ask Shannon Price.



What was up with police allowing people to enter Michael Jackson's home before they went through it?



When there is money involved, areas starts stinking, and while the world is beating down Joe, Someone will continue to keep the spotlight on Joe while they steal every dime.



They should not have paid the State of California a damn dime for Michael's Memorial. Who decided how many cops would ride just to be a part of history? Not the Jacksons I bet.



Even on that day, because of MJJ's death, California made a killing. But those guys gave the state money? Pleazzzzzzzzzzze

Some of you people are a bunch of idiots. Sit here day and night talking about who murdered Michael Jackson! ROFL if you people think you know so much why do you not go to the LAPD with this info instead of talking about it on a gossip site??



Did it ever cross your mind that Michael did propoful before on another tour and maybe he was planning on doing it again for the This Is It tour and that is where Murray comes in?



Joe is the only one on this band wagon, OH wait Jermaine too!LOL
Katherine must not think Randy Phillips had anything to do with it if YOU PEOPLE remember that last Randy was allowed to take the kids to a basketball game, do you really think Katherine would be ok with that if she thought Randy P was a murderer? I bet she does not let Murray see the kids!



This is the reason why Michaels life was so controversial, people always have to make more out of things then there was.



Now you guys are looking to see if Murrays mortgage is being paid? Get a life!

First he says that He urged Katherine to get Michael into rehab for the last year, then he says the last few times he saw Michael he knew something was wrong, he looked frail and weak and needed to get sleep but did not know he was addicted to drugs??? Well how could he urge Katherine to get him into rehab if he knew nothing about drug abuse????

I agree with you..I saw a man who was being pulled to a car to get away from the mob and cameras, not someone who had to be held up!



He seemed to move around well in this is it, nobody carried him on the stage nobody held him up to the microphone!



They need to leave the man alone he had been thin the last couple years, Geez they make him sound like he was drugged up and so thin he could not walk or talk!!

Michael - March 2009 Looks about 85 lbs?



NO, if he was a drug addict he would have died way before he reached this state. So no, I am not implying that he was a drug addict. He may have been psychologically dependent at times and drugs may have been pushed on him but I don't believe he could accomplish the huge body of work that he did in his life time.

#245: I totally agree with you. The problem is that ppl are looking at the media, to be a beacon of light, in solving the mystery surrounding MJ's death. You won't find it here ppl. The media has been lying and covering up the truth about MJ since 1984, when he was burned. I was there then, and I remember all the trash stories that generated between MJ & the press. And I'll tell you something else, this court battle is going to be dragged on for a long time, in the hopes of the public losing interest in the case at hand. But they are absolutely WRONG! PPL are not going to lose interest in this case I don't care how much money AEG throws at the state of CA! This is a prime example of greed and how it can lead to the downfall of anyone, famous or not.



"For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs." I Timothy 6:10! (N.I.V--Bible)



I'm gonna say this one time and one time only: "MICHEAL JACKSON WAS KILLED FOR HIS SONY/ATV CATALOG OF 750,000 + SONGS!!!" End of story. MJ feared for his life, and knew he would never be safe. Hence, two weeks before he was killed, the "Exposure" of his children's faces. Or this is the most elaborate hoax the world has ever seen. Either way, there is no way in the world ppl should believe that MJ was an addict, because the only meds found in his system were the meds that were administered to him by a doctor who wasn't an anesthesiologist. If this was the case, why didn't MJ drop dead in 1993? Wasn't he addicted then? "Just because you read it in a magazine & see it on the TV screen don't make it factual", MJ: "Tabloid Junkie". The man said so himself. And if you're really following this case, is Conrad Murray even Board Certified in CA? I thought he was only Board Certified in Texas & Nevada?! What's up with that??! PPL need to really pay attention before they start shooting off at the mouth. Thank you **Cherwood** for your clever attention to detail. Its sites like TMZ that confuse ppl. And anyone who hates on MJ is just plain stupid. He's only used his money for the betterment of society & to help those who are oppressed. I don't see any other celebrity 'really' out here that gives a damn about their fans, and the ppl who made them rich. PPL need to read & research before they start the blame game. The rich are getting richer, while the poor are getting poorer....and all of you sheeple, who are sitting here, debating on MJ's drug issues, are being bamboozled & hoodwinked. Thanks Cherwood!!!

Joe Jackson will not be able to prove that AEG forced Michael Jackson to take the dangerous drugs that Dr. Murray administered to him.Since 2005 Michael Jackson had all the time in the world to go to rehab and go on with his life after the fraudulent Gavin Arvizo sex lawsuit for the sake of his kids.But he became depressed and lonely and instead of finding the courage to admit that he was an addict he chose to go on taking drugs and not eating right and his insomnia became worse and worse because he had financial problems.In the end he reluctancly agreed to do 10 concerts,later it was 50 concerts.But MJ was not healthy physically and mentally.Dr. Murray came into the picture and agreed to become his enabler for lots of money.MJ put his life on the line to satisfy his fans and his creditors.But he would die from a drug overdose because his doctor was not supposed to administer anesthesia in a home.I blame Michael Jackson and Dr. Murray for the death of Michael Jackson.

Michael played a dangerous game with the drugs.... but, drug addicts are not in control. If the good doctor didn't give Michael the drugs he wanted so that AEG could get the performances out of Michael that they needed, then Michael might be here today. Joe Jackson is not very articulate but he speaks the truth sometimes..... early on after Michael died he said " you don't put the pusher in the room with the drug addict" and that is what AEG did so it could control Michael. CORPORATE MURDER.... PLAIN AND SIMPLE!
