Prince Jackson

AEG Was Killing Dad

Prince Jackson -- Michael Jackson's eldest son -- told jurors today in the wrongful death case, Michael Jackson had such problems with AEG he would cry and say, "They're gonna kill me ... they're gonna kill me."

Prince testified his dad was amped over the "This Is It" tour but felt he needed more time to rehearse.  Apparently, AEG and MJ got into it during phone conversations and the calls made Michael break down in tears.

Prince also testified AEG honcho Randy Phillips came over to the house several times and he saw Phillips aggressively grab Dr. Conrad Murray by the elbow, as if to school him.

Prince got personal and talked about how involved Michael was in his kids' lives -- something that's highly relevant in a wrongful death case in assessing damages.  He told the jury about how MJ loved home videos -- one showing Prince on a little car as Paris talked into a mic while "Daddy's Home" (a Jackson 5 song) played in the background.

Prince also said the day MJ went into full cardiac arrest at his home, Paris was screaming that she wanted her daddy.  Prince says Dr. Murray announced at the house that MJ was dead from a heart attack.

The point of the testimony -- lawyers for the Jackson family are trying to prove AEG pushed Michael mercilessly and that, combined with Murray's bad medicine, cost MJ his life.

Unfortunately that is all Hearsay and does not really mean anything. This whole Lawsuit is Bogus and it will never end for the Jackson family, It will be tied in court for years to come.

I remember when it was announced that he would be doing 50 shows and looking at current pics of him
He was sooo thin and looked so out of shape

It would have taken him months and months of therapy to get into shape to do the shows of the type and legnth they were promoting

I couldn't believe he agreed to do it

He totally misjudged his physical condition

Michael knew the Entertainment business he had a certain amount of time to prepare it was worked out with AEG Before Michael signed on to do the tour, AEG just can't tell ticket holders sorry but who knows when the show will be Michael is Being a Diva and wants more time. That is not how Concert Promoters do Business and Michael knew that.

When is enough money enough money for this group of leaches??? Jackson was broke when he died and ironically, because he died, his kids are wealthy again and their father isn't there to quander it all. Enough already.

Where is the Paper trail between Michael and AEG that Michael needed more time or he would die, Or was Prince Michael Jackson's Manager who delt with AEG.

That is evidence that MJ was an unstable and emotional mess.


It can also prove how AEG was not happy with how Murray was "treating" MJ which, combined with other evidence that Murray was told to follow their direction and not MJ's which puts blame on MJ himself.


How involved could MJ be if he insisted on being asleep 12-18 hours a day.

The freak did it to himself... he willingly took the drugs that ultimately did him in... his family are a bunch of leeches that are trying to suck anything that they can out of his estate & out of AEG because they don't know how to make an honest living.
