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."

Actually AEG was the first to profit from Michael Jackson and that son of a bitch Randy Phillips even said that they would have made a lot of money from the This Is It movie!!! Not to mention that son of a bitch did nothing when he saw Michael was not well claiming murderer was capable just because it was convenient to say that!!! Don't play the role of good AEG AND Randy Phillips you're disgusting and a DISGRACE to the human race!!!

From the article: "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."

Why doesn't the guy just write a book, that's what everyone else does who wants to cash in, and besides, MJ isn't around to dispute anything, so he can take liberties to sensationalize it. Not that I think that's the right thing to do, but why not.

Your right Williams should just write a book, he'd make a lot of money, I wouldn't buy the book but I know a lot of people who would. And, MJs siblings are just as bad if not worse, never read their books and don't want to give them any of my money. They are all just trying to stay in the public eye because they know they never had the talent MJ had, even Janet who was the only other one to have any kind of talent is now washed up because of her stupidity.

Maybe he doesn't have a legal leg to stand on, but maybe that will change the legal precedent in the future, because clearly these employees suffered a loss of financial earnings, because of your negligence in appointing a medical doctor to facilitate illegal doping. For all we know, you could have planted Dr. Murray to intentionally kill MJ to escape the contract of this large venture, so there is no reason why this complaint should not be fully explored. Furthermore, AEG should keep their emotional halfwits from making public comments about pending litigation, and save it for court, but that is what a corporation of integrity would do.

Per the coroners report MJ did NOT have any drugs or alcohol in him, only propofol that murderer murray gave him. So, if he was a druggie then he would have had more in him then that. LUV U MICHAEL, LUV U FOREVER.
