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."

I don't know who is telling the truth anymore. I just know that when large amounts of money are concerned it is wise to trust no one. Whoever keeps trying to plug that "Pseudocide" book, you don't know either!

Michael was not in control. He had severe anxiety and depression and somebody should have intervened. Even if it mean't he had to be sectioned under the mental health act for his own good.
He had a very serious drug problem and it wasn't taken seriously.
All people every cared about was the money and not human life.
I think it is absolutely atrocious what happened to Michael, however blaming AEG is not the way forward here. I can understand why Joe wants to get the answers that he is looking for. I think he is full of remorse and I just hope the truth will prevail in the very near future for everyones sake.

Sighhhhhhh Trish what they did was "exploit" a weakness of MJ's to suit there benefits. Are you telling me you don't have any? As for it being a year and to get over it I suggest you do the same because MJ fans are not going anywhere like it or not.

I think Michael Jackson did it to himself... he spent wildly so he needed the money from the tour. He also was the drug abuser and requested the drugs... I don't believe Murray should have given him he drugs. So perhaps Michael's dad should blame Michael or himself.

What is wrong with all of you??? You think the Jacksons became a franchise just because they had talent? NO It was Joe Jackson's determination & perserverance. All of you need to stop being blind and brainwashed. Joe Jackson is nothing but the truth. You just don't want to accept the truth because Michael said he abused them. Well guess what? I bet most of your fathers have done some of the same stupid stuff Mr. Jackson has pulled. All I have to do is look at America's Funniest Home Videos to see how callous & careless MEN are towards their children. Not to mention some of the crap you can find on YouTube & other websites. Do you need me to send you some examples???

I believe Michael knew he was terminal ill and had to get this project done for his children, family, friends, fans and his Legacy. AEG deserves a world applause for their dedication and perseverance for making it happen.

I think many people have "blood on their hands" as a result of MJ's death....I also don't think Michael was completely blameless in all this. joe is definitely on a mission. I wonder when all this madness will come to an end...

That it ridiculous. Michael was perfectly healthy for his age as proven by the autopsy report; he was far from "terminally ill". As far as AEG deserving a round of applause, please wake up, that's only what they want you to think. I don't mean nay disrespect, but please don't be so naive.

Joe Jackson and Brian Oxman,what a pair.
I wish I could say that Joe is so hurt by the untimely death of his son,that he blindly lashing out at those he believes hurt his son.But I can't say that.And Brian Oxman should be ashamed.
In order for AEG and insurance to pay for the medical equipment.=,Murray would have had to say why there was a valid medical reason for it.Michael was in good health and had no cardiovascular conditions that warranted such equipment.
Joe Jackson is just trying to make a buck again.
