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."

78. 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.

The autopsy report states: Michael Jackson was in good healthy (NOT relatively).

Michael was addicted to drugs as a result of the accident that occurred during the filming of the Pepsi commercial. He was such a sweetheart and really needed somebody to fight his battles for him and represent him in every negotiation, so people didn't take advantage of him. Considering his amazing talent, he should have been the master of his fate, but unfortunately, he wasn't.

And, I don't for one minute believe MJ was ever weak, allowed others to manage him - control him at all. But this story, post, it's so stupid it almost makes sense.



if there's any PROOF AEG knew of what Murray was doing, propofol, IV benzos, etc...and they were paying him...hum! also, if murray has any PROOF he asked/requested equipment, a nurse, etc...from AEG....that's huge. Randy Phillips is a money hungry pig, same with the dude who directed TII, 'it's show business and money talks'.



It's disgusting, disgusting if it's true.

2. 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.

Sigh David, when will people stop saying he was a drug addict?
The autopsy proved once and for all that he was NOT a drug addict that the only drugs in his body were those tht Murray administered to him that very day.

It's true that Michael was not weak and he never allowed others to manage him but it is NOT true that AEG knew like Joe has interest to make believe.

If MJ had this he wouldn't have been able to sing one note or dance the way he did in TII, go look at past photos of him over the last few years, he looked great. He was ALWAYS bone thin, watch the making of Thriller video, he's a frickin rail. Watch 1970 videos, he's a bone. He got heavier during the History Tour, oh yeah, you know...when he was doing propofol on tour. That's such a lie and everyone who came out saying he asked for it has all been discredited and have tried to SELL their BE stories. MY said he had a 'drug problem' (cough, cough) when it was convenient for him, "Ah, I don't remember, could have been on drugs." I don't think he did, period! He used it as an excuse. JMO!



A dead person's lungs always fill with fluid when they die. Also, MJ died from acute drug poisioning, bascially, that affects your organs...hello!

81. 78. 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.
-------------------
Again, this Autopsy Report is written for media consideration. Drug amount taken was in the normal range. Propofol as listed was a very small amount if proven.

I firgured the truth about AEG would come out after the Jackson fanmily estate made alot of money on THIS IS IT movie The Jackson family probaly knew about this from the beginning. I would have never bought the CD if I knew they knew about his propofal use and did nothing about it. Im sure the fans will find out more once the trial begins. Michael may have even taken his own life and left letters for his kids. Even Paris said he told her she would have to take care of Blanket because he wanted to go to a better place. IM sure Murray is going to bring out all this in the trial. Its to bad either way that he died. Gone to soon for sure. RIP MIchael hope you found the Peace you longed for.

"After coming back from the hospital to Hayvenhurst, Katherine received a very disturbing phonecall from MJ's personal assistant, Michael Amir Williams, that Tohme had come to the Holmby house and sacked all the staff and did the same at MJ's Las Vegas house"

Joe wanted to make part in the business. He called Michael because he wanted to make part in the "This is it tour". Now he wants money from AEG or anybody.
