AEG to MJ's Assistant

How DARE You Sue Us!

You're a Disgrace

Michael Jackson
's former assistant is delusional if he thinks he'll win his new lawsuit against AEG -- this according to the entertainment group, which tells TMZ, the guy's a disgrace to MJ's memory ... and doesn't have a legal leg to stand on.

TMZ broke the story, MJ's former assistant Michael Amir Williams has sued AEG, claiming he lost out on a massive paycheck because AEG negligently employed Dr. Conrad Murray for MJ's "This Is It" tour ... the doctor who eventually killed MJ with a fatal dose of Propofol.

But a rep for AEG tells us, "This lawsuit is clearly frivolous; it is literally barred by at least four different legal doctrines."

According to AEG, Williams doesn't have a case because he was never a beneficiary of MJ's contract with AEG Live ... nor can he legally bring a claim for MJ’s wrongful death.  

The rep adds, "The idea that Mr. Williams purports to sue on behalf of the many persons who did enter into relationships with AEG Live and Jackson ... and with whom AEG Live parted ways with the utmost friendship and respect, is disgraceful."

As far as AEG is concerned, Williams' lawsuit is a desperate and shameless money grab ... nothing more ... and he's destined to lose in court.

"This is just the latest wrongful death lawsuit with someone hoping to profit from Michael Jackson’s tragic death in the same way they profited from his life."

When will people STOP trying to use Michael Jackson for his money? The assistant is not a child or relative of Michael Jackson. He was not named in the will. He has NO CASE.

Dead and gone for years now and we're STILL subjected to this guy's freak face constantly in the news. So over it, he's dead, stop reporting on him and goings on with his family, friends, finances etc., we don't care!

your right to sue is for dummies
im going to do a an auction
for charity

lets see if who wins this game.
if all th eproperty belongs to me
lets just raise money for charity
do it the mj way.

i cant believe the nerve of people that actually think i would be willing to even give property away to people who stalk me. you know me, I would hand it right over to you, no questions asked
but you have to play games of abuse.

you really believe i would throw out his mother??
i give her the home outright and pay the fees myself, but all i get is stalked and abused.


you know me better then that. all im asking for is who lives where so we can do what we need to do
which no one wants to do because there to busy looking at my vagina on speed cam.

i would suggest peope think about what there doing so im not forced to throw people out
and auction **** off.

you want the properties no problem no more speed cam, no more tapping.
free of charge . you decide what you want

you keep tapping and keep speed cam
properties get auctioned

Bull AEG. Payup! It's not just Williams AEG but rest of the staff, hence class action suit. These kids worked, and were hoping to change their lives, with that job. And the Billions that they made already, COME ON! David and Goliath thats what this is.

Williams just wants to stay in the public eye, he probably loves the limelight and wants another 15mins of fame.

Williams is about to run out of money if he doesn't get a job soon, so he thought if he sued he wouldn't have to work anymore.
