AEG -- Don't Blame Us for Dr. Murray!

9/16/2010 6:17 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

AEG is finally lashing back at Katherine Jackson's lawsuit over the death of her son Michael Jackson -- claiming it had nothing to do with the hiring or supervision of Dr. Conrad Murray.

AEG Lawsuit

In a statement released through AEG's lawyers -- the company calls Katherine's lawsuit "inaccurate, unsubstantiated and meritless" and then goes on to explain its relationship with Dr. Murray.

The statement continues ... "Dr. Murray was Mr. Jackson's longtime personal physician.  AEG did not choose him, hire him or supervise him.  That said, and in honor of our professional relationship with Mr. Jackson and his Estate, we will have no further public statements."

It is true that Michael handpicked Dr. Murray -- but Katherine claims that AEG was negligent because they didn't check Murray's credentials. Katherine also claims AEG pushed Michael way too hard during rehearsals.

Come this is one f*cked up family. Blame everyone but themselves. I guess Katherine needs more money to support the rest of the losers in the family besides MJ's kids.

Sure, everyone is at fault besides the junkie MJ. Perhaps his family should sue each other , after all none of them did anything about his addiction (to boys or drugs). They should have known before AEG. His mommy and family were around him more than some AEG rep. You just did not want to tick off your meal ticket. Whoever is responsible........THANKS! Little boys all over the world can feel safe now.

This is a money laundering scam. The money she is using to pay for the lawyer fee to sue AEG is given to her husband Joe by the lawyers. The lawyers are not really being paid but instead they are giving the money back to the jacksons. This is MJ and MJs kids money and this is how the Joe Jackson family gets it.

That's right, where were his family members all those years he was mutilating his face and taking that kaleidoscope of drugs? They KNEW every minute what he was doing, yet they didn't want to upset the money train. Blood-sucking s*** bags! Go out and get yourselves some REAL jobs for a change instead of sponging off a dead corpse!

I agree with Katherine they should have checked Dr. Murrays background before he began to work for Michael and why is Dr. Murray trying to put the blame on Arnie Klein? Murray was the last one with our beloved MJ before he passed away. I hope Murray gets more than 4 years for what he did. MJ can never be replaced Murray not only took MJ from his family but us fans as well. SHAME SHAME SHAME on AEG

I agree with you #1 they killed MJ,because everyone knows that AEG is the mob. Now they want to claim they innocent, I don't think so.
