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."

@Tellit Yep, I bet your right. The bro's are blogging. LOL They're either Trish, Ohwell and etc., haters or MJ lovers. I always said, "you never see a Brinks truck, following a hearse. So untrue with the Jacksons. Another words, live life to the fullest.

60. Does Anybody Think Michael Jackson
Is Responsible For Michael Jacksons
Death?

Yes. I do. But I don't think he's the ONLY one responsible. If Michael ran to the edge of the cliff and jumped off of it, I think there was also a big crowd of people behind him, egging him on and perhaps giving him the collective push that finally made him lose his balance and go over.

I am really fed up of all this hate some of you have for Michael. NO MICHAEL WASN'T A DRUG EDICT. The medicine he used was for his disease, no more no less, so do not try to put the blame on Michael, because he cannot defend himself. We all know, who are SONY AND AEG. BLOOD SUCKERS.
Hope you people do not have to deal with such companies full of greed.
JUSTICE HAVE TO BE DONE FOR MICHAEL.

Hmmm...I think all involved had a hand in MJ's demise including MJ. AEG was well aware of MIchael's past drug problems but remember he only had the sedatives and the Propofol in his system along with the Ephedrine. AEG has blood on their hands and they messed up when they refused to pay Murray his fee and thats what will make Murray talk and say more than what AEG is comfortable with. How do you think Joe found out that AEG never supplied the proper monitoring equipment that was orally agreed upon...Its been alot of azz covering and lying going on from the beginning. Terry Harvey said from the beginning that those in charge of the concerts including Thome, Dileo, Phillips etc. new about the propofol but refused to do anything about it. I agree Michael contributed to his own demise but others around him are just as responsible....MONEY MONEY MONEY fueled it along with the male ego....Love it or hate it....



Michael was cut off from his family and fans and repeatedly threatened. Its alot more to this than many people realize and if Joe keeps pushing the truth will be revealed. And for those of you that think Joe didn't love his son you are dead wrong and they had reconciled. Joe loved his son....

62. FINALLY. It's kinda sad that this has to come from "crazy Joe Jackson", but I've been waiting a friggin year for this news to come out, as all "in the know" Mike fans knew this!!!!! AEG & Dr. Tohme Tohme need to pay for Michael's death.

I think everyone is wondering just where in the heck is Tohme hiding? It's funny as the heat was coming down with Murray he seemed to just disappear.

63. Interstitial Pneumonitis
Regardless of etiology, UIP is relentlessly progressive, usually leading to respiratory failure and death. Some patients do well for a prolonged period of time, but then deteriorate rapidly because of a superimposed acute illness (so-called "accelerated UIP"). The outlook for long-term survival is poor. In most studies, the median survival is 3 to 4 years. Patients with UIP in the setting of rheumatoid arthritis have a slightly better prognosis than UIP without a known cause wiki
-----------------
Looking at the Autopsy Report (it's been revised for media consideration) Interstitial Pneumonitis is listed under Lungs.

Just wanted to add it is listed under 12/#6 B -#2 Pulmonary Pathology

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

Michael was in good healthy and the doctor you must have when you do a tour. It's the law.

And if it's been revised for media consideration why do you consider it???? Michael was in good healthy in coroner's words.

Michaels ''dad'' has being screwing Michael and the rest of his family over for years .
Money mad is what he is, i ask questions why all the family feel the need to change how they look .ie plastic fantastic face op's.
All the Jackson children , have a talent, are beautiful people in their own adult right ...................But i will always remember the boy ''Michael'' ''Off the Wall'' album, belting that out in Dublin Ireland when it first came out , me and my 11 brothers and sisters were the coolest on the estate !
But i have NEVER liked or trusted Michaels dad, as i feel it was him that made Michael want to change the colour of his skin.
BE BLACK AND BE PROUD, BE WHITE AND BE PROUD, But for the love of god, be proud of you first and not just to impress
other people.
R.I.P Micheal, and all on here to have lost someone also, god bless you and yours , and may your god go with you x

The lung condition mentioned is not a fatal condition and the AUTOPOSY REPORT itself states that Michael was in relatively good health.The cause of death was acute propofol poisoning.

Hmmmm, Tohme is Randy Phillips exbrother in law and is also connected to Jermaine Jackson. Don't get any of this twisted just start connecting the dots. Check out the website Death by a thousand papercuts they connected the dots of Tohme, Colony Capitol, AEG not long after MJ's demise.

46. 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.



Posted at 4:11 PM on Jun 18, 2010 by Romina



what a stupid, ignorant post. no other drugs, zero, nada, zlich, were found in Mike's system other than what the doctor gave him. Hello! Honest about what drugs, the drugs he were taking were from his DOCTOR.



You people are so frickin' stupid! He hired Murray to help him sleep, murray should have said NO, NO, NO, NO to propofol, he didn't know how to adminiter it, had no appropriate equipment (he was a frickin cardiologist) and didn't even know how to perform frickin' CPR correctly. NO OTHER DRUGS FOUND IN MJ'S SYSTEM. And no, he had no terminal illness either, how stupid! It would have been supported by the autopsy report.



Murray is an idiot, he deserves to go to prision! Period!



Maybe MJ wanted it...so what, Murray should have, could have said NO. Do NO harm, doctor's oath...do not HARM. Well, he did some harm, he KILLED him, and the levels of propofol found in MJ's system were insane, as were all the other drugs. MJ was passed out and Murray just kept loading him up.



Read the facts, people. Or shut up!
