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.

This is such greed.... MJ was a 50 year old man, not a teenager.

He is responsible to choose his doctor and as we know he was making the doctor use the anesthetic.

Didn't mama get enough? She's made bazillions since MJ's death. Quit dragging his kids through this crap. It's over. He's gone.

He wasn't a child, his life choices were his responsibility.

Like many people all over the world, I was saddened when Michael Jackson passed away. However, blaming AEG for personal choices MJ, himself made isn't going to bring him back. There seems to be ample evidence that others warned MJ about the non-clinical use of the propofol but he persisted until someone like Dr. Murray decided to administer it. I wouldn't want to be in his shoes for anything in the world because he knew the risks and decided to inject the drug anyway. Since AEG didn't chose or place Dr. Murray under direct contract for the services he rendered to MJ, I don't really see how Mrs. Jackson can win her case. However, stranger things have happened.

Those Damnn Jehovah's Witnesses always cause problems for friends and families. History proves it . They never can get it right thats why those who leave the Watchtower Corporation are happier.

Mama Jackson, let these kids have a normal life . Their Daddy was addicted to drugs . Stop trying to justify the obvious, Watchtower has really indoctrinated you .

Agape!

This "family" is a disgrace. The fact that this mother doesn't even know the facts of who employed Dr. Murray tells me none of them had any contact w/MJ for quite some time. Give up already, quit blowing your grandkids inheritance on atty's. and lawsuits.
He was an addict, he handpicked the people that would give him what he wanted. End of story.
I don't understand why the charges against Murry aren't dropped, like the judge in Anna Nicole case said she was responsible for her own death, so should be the ruling in MJ's case as sad as itis he's gone, he went early by his own choices in life.
