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."

Yeah, when he had to face a zillion frckin' court cases, he was sued more times than anyone, for stupid AZZ stuff and he won! MJ's drug rehab, did anyone do any research on it back in the 1990's, it was a zen like rehab place, afterwards he comes back to a big chirstmas celebration at his house, thrown by Liz. Watch the Video, MJ was NO drug addict. I don't believe he was.

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.

That's what I think too. This is one time when Joe's big mouth is advantageous. It makes me chuckle to think that he'll never let any of these shady people relax. He'll just keep talking and harassing them. It's my belief that he'll never actually get any money out of them, but he'll keep talking. And that will make all their lives very uncomfortable and inconvenient for some time to come. Since I figure Murray is going to ultimately get off with a slap on the wrist and that no one at AEG will ever be held legally accountable for their actions, what Joe is doing is fine with me.

We'll probably never know exactly what happened, but you're right about one thing - there's more here than meets the eye. And AEG may not have known everything, but I think they knew much more than they'll ever admit to, that's for sure.

jenny what if he WAS a drug addict. 90% of this entire country, world are addicted to something; drugs, alcohol, substances, money, fame, sex, smoking, lies, caffeine, food, shopping, blah, blah, blah.

So, why the heck should/would Michael Jackson be any different for god's sakes? If anyone need or was entitled to get some relief from stress (hello, the worst frickin trial, BS, followed 24-7) he was!

I would have been loaded up too on crap if I was him! The man couldn't go one day in his life without constant BS. Look, it's been a year since he's passed and MJ stories are still the most commented on.

I don't believe he was a "drug addict" as some people claim,his autopsy showed he was healthy,if he had been abusing drugs it would have shown.The only drugs that were in his system were the one murray gave that day(and admitted to giving)I believe there are more people involved,and the truth will come out.

The autopsy calls it Propofol intoxication yet the amount was so small (2.6 ml to 4.0).

The Smooth Criminal video with the gold pants illustrates why women were so attracted to him.
