Katherine Jackson: AEG Was Reckless with MJ's Life

1/21/2011 4:01 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Katherine Jackson has just filed legal docs claiming AEG was well aware ... there were life-threatening activities going down at Michael Jackson's house ... yet the company turned a blind eye.

Katherine Jackson AEG
Katherine is challenging AEG's motion to dismiss the wrongful death lawsuit against the company.

In her docs, Katherine says AEG retained Dr. Conrad Murray for an "exorbitant salary of $150,000 monthly," and in return Murray agreed to "get Jackson to attend rehearsals and perform."

Katherine's lawyers claim it should have been obvious to AEG when Murray requested CPR equipment at MJ's home that "the medical treatments being administered risked stopping Jackson's heart and breathing." 

Katherine's lawyer continues, "This is hardly the type of risk expected in an ordinary house visit from a family doctor."

The lawyers claim, "AEG should have known that the course of treatment being administered by Dr. Murray was unorthodox and unsafe."

I am so sick of this family trying every which way they can to get more money out of the tragedy that was Michael Jackson's death.

It's awful... and pathetic.

Why didn't Katherine and the gang kick up all this dust when Michael Jackson was still living? It may have actually helped, then.

So why did AEG turn a blind eye to all of this hmmmmmmmm? What motive could they possibly have?

Well if MJ did not live up to doing the concerts he would have had to sell off the very lucritive catalogue......all AEG had to do was turn a blind eye to MJ's habit. I mean seriously MJ was healthy as a horse right? Yeah....not look at him singing on This Is it especially the first part with a close up of him. He looked like a skeleton, even his make up artist who had been with him for years said in an interview that the reson on this is it that you see him doing different songs in different outfits is cause he could never finish a whole song!!!!

Imo they knew he would not be able to do all the shows and were banking on it. With MJ dying they literally killed the golden goose.

Now the catalogue is where it belongs and MJ's finances are getting straightened out so the children can have it down the road.

See what greed does to people?

Sad.......

Peace.

I agree!!!
They certainly had more to gain with MJ being dead than alive!!
Poor Michael, he went through so much for his fans, and I do believe that he wanted to be on top of his game for the concerts, and that was probably the main reason for him begging for that damn propofol.
God Bless Ms. Jackson!

Where were the Jackson's? Janet said they all new about his drug problems and even at one point tried to stage an intervention. As far as AEG was concerned he was another eccentric, weird performer with an absurd rider. You can't tell me the Jackson's didn't know what was going on the whole time, they just turned a blind eye so they wouldn't derail the money train.

Why don't you take your racist dumb butt back to the gates of hell in which you came. It's folks like you who make the world so f'd up! You don't know these people or all black people for that matter. What if someone said it's idiot f#@kers like you that make some of the white race look like backwoods hillbillies who show up at tea party rallies, huntin moose with palin, and hiding behind a keyboard! I would be wrong right, so take your wet dog smellin hair , go somewhere and f off, thats coming from me and the Jacksons!

As much as I dislike the whole saga, Katherine does have a very valid point here. And she should pursue the doctors and care agencies who flubbed up!

MJ believed in being innocent until proven guilty, & that goes for everyone. It is so unfair to make comments about people with only media garbage and personal feelings.

MJ refused to see family until HE wanted to. It was HIS home. We are not holders of all MJ & family business. In cases like these, people tend make up their opinions pre trial, and get stuck on dumb post trial.

Whatever is out there to make some angry, Mrs. Jackson does not need to be called such ugly names. You have no proof she refused to help MJ because she did not her funds stopped. If MJ was only in his right frame of mind 10 minutes daily, I feel sure he would never make his Mother leave the life she now enjoy.

The statement about MJ's children being better off with their Father dead, may bring the question, "were YOU parentless?" Did someone fail to teach you, that speaking of someone's parents, while having no true facts about the subject, is a true showing of ignorance?
