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."

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.

Everyone or just about everyone agrees Joe Jackson loves money, however that does not excuse AEG and there knowledge of what was going on with MJ's health. They knew everything...everything.

I hate to be critical, but I can't help it, since I am a legal secretary. Although I know that some of the posters are from foreign countries and English is not their native language and their heart is in the right place when it comes to Michael Jackson, I would advise them to learn proper English grammar or at least use spell check.

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

------------------
It just doesn't make sense the way it was written. What good healthy person takes that kind of medicine? Propofol intoxication by 2.6 to 4.0 ml is absurd. The Benzodiazepines were more likely the cause unless you take medical pathology (chronic interstitial pneumonitis) into consideration.

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.

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

I have a copy of the autopsy report with me. Michael was in relatively good health which means he was in pretty good shape for a 50 year old man.This does not mean that he was without some health issues.He had arthritis in fingers and lower spine ,a benign colon polyp,vitiligo,an enlarged prostate and chronic lung inflammation which was not a contributing factor to death,just a problem that meant Michael would have to be careful not to catch colds or flu and to take care if he did."The autopsy did not show any trauma or natural disease which would cause death."12,pg. 11 from actual report.
Michael would still be a live of someone else had not over-dosed him with propofol and other sedatives.

Travis Payne, as MJ's choreographer used to come to the house almost daily for rehearsals, so of course AEG knew what was going on. Travis is one of the TII producers, isn't he?

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....



Posted at 4:41 PM on Jun 18, 2010 by Shae




Yeah, I say...good for you Joe, good for you Oxman, I don't care what their motives are. If there are lies and BS being covered up, then...hey, talk, talk, talk, talk. I don't usually comment on MJ's family, I haven't a clue about his feelings for them, nor they for him, it's not my business. But, that was his son!



Good, go get em' Joe! Good on ya! Good for JOE!

Michael was addicted to drugs, and AEG knew this, how could they not?? Really, why would Michael want a personal physician prior to the tour?? Why was Michael missing so many practices?? Why would the doc need the cardiac equip.and nurse?? AEG knew and encouraged it because they wanted to make $$$$!!!
Regardless of what you think of Michael Jackson, this boils down to an extremely negligent doctor and AEG's worries about their investment. Add the 2 together and you get the death of the King of Pop. Kick ass Joe! Sony/AEG have made tons of cash since Michael's death, more than had he lived. Begs the ?, did they not only know about the addiction problem but use it to kill Michael.

Good post. I never really thought of MJ's death as a 'conspiracy' or anything else. But now, I'm starting to really wonder what REALLY DID happen. Where are those missing video tapes - security tapes at MJ's house. Did anyone ever find the money, wasn't it like $5M MJ had around.



If AEG knew of this and promoted and encouraged it, I'm sick, just sick about this. Sony, AEG, Randy Phillips, Kenny Ortega, all of them, look how much money they've made!



JOE, don't stop till you get enough. Keep going JOE, find the truth. AEG, yes millions and millions of money they're making. Did they kill our King of Pop?



GO JOE. TEAM JOE!

And thats the truth    

I am getting the impression that AEG was fully aware that Michael was going under anesthesia every night. If this is the truth then by all means AEG is somewhat responsible for his early demise.



I have read stories that Michael used to do this very same thing while he was on tour back in the 90's but he had an anesthesiologist to put him under and bring him back out of it.



There is more here then meets the eye in my opinion. Joe's agressiveness may be an advantage to get to the bottom of this very sad situation.

Autopsy report also stated basal ganglia calcification which could be a sign of early onset of alzheimer's.
Because there actually IS an autopsy, how can anyone believe Michael Jackson is till alive??!
