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."

If Michael was perfectly healthy he would still be alive and he certainly wouldn't have needed to hire a 24 hour physician.

Michael Jackson IS NOT DEAD!
And Oxman and Joe Jackson BOTH know it.

This is all smoke and mirrors......to make you believe
that Michael Jackson is "dead".
.
It will also serve to help get Conrad Murray "off the hook"...which was always part of the original "plan".
.
AEG is also in on this "coverup". AEG knows Michael Jackson is alive.

All a ploy to convince you that a "death" exists.

Joe Jackson want to blame everyone for his sons death, how about this, you son was addicted to drugs and he is responsible for his own demise. The man had a problem and his father wants to place blame on everyone but himself. Joe, you abused your children, if not physically, mentally. The were the bread winners for your family and you and you alone sold them out for $$$$$. You Mr. Jackson are acting like a guilty person by pointing the finger of blame elsewhere. Take responsibility for you actions in all of this. Look at all of your children and their lives and ask yourself if you did your best to love and protect your children, not the performers, your children. You exploited all of them for money and at the end of the day yes, you made them famous but you also robbed them of their youth.
Happy freaking Father's Day idiot.

I believe a lot of Joe's claim. In other words, it is not a stretch for me to believe that Michael only showed up at rehearsal sporadically and that those at AEG were beginning to worry that he might flake out entirely -- or start these shows and then never finish them. They probably had good reason to worry about this. After all, in the last 10 or 15 years of Michael life, he had a habit of flaking out on many of his obligations. In fact, in the initial moments after it was announced that Michael had been hospitalized (but before it was announced that he had actually died) I read a flood of posts on the internet, many of which had the same sentiment. I remember one person wrote words to this effect: "I swear, if this is just another excuse for him to get out of those London concerts, then I am throwing in the towel as a fan. He is way overly dramatic. This better not end up as a reason for him to cancel the upcoming shows." My point being that even the public and fans half expected Michael to duck out of the O2 engagement. He could not be counted on to follow through with anything anymore.



The real concern of course, for Dr. Murray and those at AEG was money money money. If Michael flaked out, no one was gonna make any. So I believe Joe's inference that they got desperate and were willing to do whatever it took to get Michael on that stage in London. Even if they had to prop him up. It's not hard to believe that people from AEG knew what was going on in that bedroom at night, or even that they ordered Murray to do this.



In the end of course, Michael allowed himself to take the drug. It's just sad to me though, because although Michael was an adult and responsible for his own actions, the pressure he was under must have been tremendous. In the last 5 years of his life especially, I don't think he had his wits about him much. I think he had a slow nervous breakdown, and it's tough to totally blame someone for decisions they made under those kind of cir***stances.

Stop blaming AEG and leave Dr Murray alone. Joe and sleaze Oxman need to keep their pie holes shut and fade into the sunset. Jackson killed himself with his drug addiction. Getting the drug was all he cared about and now he is dead because of it.

Yes, AEG is examined thoroughly, Murray is examined fully, Tohme is examined--it's all dissected and it's so much fun to discover al the clues with substantiation.

Dr. Murray did not kill MJ. Drug addicted MJ killed MJ. This is why doctors always ask if you are taking anything at all, including vitamins, supplements, herbal treatments, OTHER DRUGS, even OTC ones. If you are not honest with your doc, this can happen, and MJ was NOT honest about his addiction. The blame is on the one who took the drugs. Nobody made him.

Finally Joe is showing the fans what his plan is to get AEG. They absolutley have Michael's blood on there hands. Waterboarding is used in the military in a very effective way perhaps Dr. Conrad Murray needs a little dose of that to get him talking. My question is there are people on here defending AEG? Why? Do some of them work for them? AEG is no different than BP, they are all MURDERERS!
