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.

Katherine is greedy like Joe and should sue herself for being a bad mother (who did not care about her son) and grandmother who does not hesitate to exploit three poor children for her own advantage. She says she feels hurt when people talk bad about Michael, but is just her to say that he was not able to perform. LIES!!!! Michael was in good healthy, his problem was the insomnia and never and ever would have allowed to anyone to subdue him and never they would have allowed because they respected him (at the opposite of her!!!). Michael would strangle her with his hands if he would see how she is raising and using his children! All for God money!! Shame on you!!!

In response to the ignorant statements of Gmopp...Apparantly you think Quincy is a relavant person...he's not..he is a has been who has no legacy and needs to sit in his rocker and not say anything which shows his own ignorance. MJ did have vitiligo and it was confirmed by Tom Messereau, the autopsy and Oprah saw on his arm that it was Vitiligo, not skin bleaching. Get your facts straight. Everyone is jealous of the King, including you and obviously Quincy. The above "book" you wrote is filled with untruths. Your jealousy is showing and I guesss you are a prime example of "Anything for Money." Did you not read that AEG contract? Did you not even COMPREHEND it? I guess not. Get someone with some legal intelligence to read it to you and explain it to you so you might understand, if possible, what it says. You didn't know MJ nor QJ. You are a prime example of "Ignorance is Bliss."

I thought it was substaniated that there was no formal agreement with Murray, Since Michael had not yet signed the contract (or something to that affect). This was discussed shortly after MJ died (yes DIED, beLIEve it) and was the reason stated that Murray was not getting any AEG money. With that fact alone, I would have to agree with AEG.

Now the point they make, Murray was his "longtime" personal doctor-- is around 2 years now considered "longtime"? (makes me think... "me love you longtime")

Regardless, Joe goes after Murray (and thanks to Ox-dork) will likely lose. Katherine & MJ3 go after AEG. Strategy? Why didn't Katherine go after Murray first? After all, Murray WAS the one who injected MJ.

This whole thing smells fishy to me.

No one in the Jackson family can blame anyone outside of themselves for MJ's death. Katerine especially, given that they all knew Michael was a drug addict and yet his money (they begged for) was more important than making him enter treatment. As a mother, whether my child disown me or not, if I see they are in trouble I am going to do everything in my power to get them help. Even if, as in Michael's case, I had to charge him with child neglect to get his attention. At least at the end of the day, I could say I did everything in my power to save him.

Katherine - you are more responsible than anyone for MJ's untimely passing! You knew he was sick but you cared more about his money than his soul. You need to face reality!

Really? Longtime personal physician? I was under the impression that Dr. Murray had been MJ's doctor for a week or so. If he was his longtime personal physician, surely he would have known the address of MJ's home so he could have called 911 much earlier.

And then if she knew that Michael had a problem with the painkillers how come she did nothing for helping him??? Elisabeth Taylor convinced Michael to go in therapy in '93, not she. And she was his mother and did not knew that her son suffered from insomnia?? Only now she seems to know everything.... Shame on you Katherine!

Glad to see the majority of us really get it..MJ was to blame..and I agree with the poster who stated "perhaps his family should sue each other"..who should really be trying to help an addict other than themselves...the "concerned" family,however they did not want to "intrude" on his privacy, or rick not getting financial benefits from him..this family is a joke...suck it up he was a talented drug addict..plain and simple. And there are many others out there just like him.

The family knew Michael was in very bad shape yet did nothing. This is all about money. Michael was a wonderful entertainer but he was a drug addict with hundreds of enablers surrounding him, his family included. If he didn't die June 25, he would have the next year or soon after. Michael had been slowly dying since he was five years old and forced onto the stage. Michael's lifestyle killed hm, and Murray just happened to be the guy who pulled the trigger. Murray should be held accountable just as AEG and Kenny Ortega, that family and all who saw Michael in dire straights and pushed him onward.

The following you are about to look your eyeballs upon are the sayings of a Bodhisattva. Memorized and written down by a disciple Bikkhu. The readers are being saluted with hands flat together and up with "Namaste".

" O wauw, that's great. More lawsuits. What a wonderfull life is that. Later AEG could be suing back. And everybody is in a world to hurt. Except when there is much money to make. But everybody knows that you can't by happiness. That is not very nice for the children there. They have to live the rest of their lives with lawsuit after lawsuit. With a dead father who can put in the Guiness Book of Records for being the one with the most lawsuits in his life. How ironical. Welcome in the world of showbizz. I forsee depression, drugs and painkillers in the future of these children. Sounds very good that in death at least you'll have piece. But then one will get it all back in the next life. What a world we're living in he? It is the painfull cycle of rebirth. And everybody wants to be happy. So how do we get out of the painfull cycle of rebirth? By illumination.
