AEG Responds To Jackson Family's Lawsuit.

AEG has responded to the lawsuit filed against them today by the Jackson family that blames them for the death of Michael, and it sounds like they're having none of the accusations whatsoever!

Their lawyers claim that Katherine's lawsuit is "inaccurate, unsubstantiated and meritless," and 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."

This is all just becoming too much!

We understand that the Jackson family wants answers, as most do when someone as young as Michael passes, but come on!

We hope that they focus on the process of healing and coming to terms with their grief, instead of focusing on all of those ridiculous legal and monetary issues!

So sad.

    The Jackson's blame everyone except themselves. The Jackson's let Michael do whatever he wanted since he was their bankroll. Now that he is dead, it is everyone elses fault.

    okay i'm sorry but i dont believe the money is the first thing on their minds. it's SO EFFING SHADY. i'm sorry. this situation is F'ED up…. and you SHOULDN'T just let that go. the music industry is full of GANGSTERS. i don't think people realize it. THEY ARE GANGSTERS. they just don't carry big guns their weapons are other things. but SOMEONE NEEDS TO BE CALLED OUT ON THIS. yes michael was a grown man, but something is fishy.

    AEG need's to read their own contract and what it was they said they would provide and the terms that they put forth and agreed to. That is why they are being asked to be held accountable for their actions. Michael choosing Murray as the person to take care of him is not the issue here and they know it. The issue is regarding the fact that they knew what Murray (the person they were paying) was doing and what it was that they contractually said they would do but didn't. They knew that the meds. Murray was using and the methods that he was using was not safe nor was it supposed to be going on outside of a hospital setting and that is why they agreed to have proper resusitation equipment. Now in a round about way they are saying that they didn't choose the doctor who killed Michael so it isn't their fault? Honestly, do accomplices to murders put out the same kind of statements as AEG? "I was there, I knew what was going on and even helped supply certain things and agreed to certain things, but I wasn't the one who actually did it." *rolls eyes* So AEG, you did "not choose him, hire him or supervise him." but you knew what in the world was going on.

    It will be a joyous day when MIchael will finally be able to rest in peace.



  5. 5

    The family ahs every right to accuse people who did wrong doing, i hope they get justice.



  6. 6

    Family are so greedy. Why do they keep suing for money. Though I am not a jackson fan.. he needs to rest in peace he's probably looking at his family right now, thinking, "you guys need to just let this go, I'm gone, let everything be".



  7. 7

    That's exactly what I said.



  8. 8

    I don't know what they are talking about, Conrad Murray was not his longtime physician. He was hired for the "This Is It Tour" and is obviously the reason he is dead.



  9. 9

    he was so young ???? he was 51 years old he was not young at all just because he slept with little kids did not make him young he was an old man that like to cuddle children.

    if he was not rich out his ass he would have been in a prison getting raped and stabbed everyday

    Re: MJ fan59 – Since Jackson's 50 concerts at the O2 had already sold out, it looks to me as though the deal was on, signature or not, on the promoter's part.



  11. 11

    No, Perez. They're greedy. Thy have been listening to real bad advice…or worse…they've been listening to each other! Michael's brothers and sisters and alll their kids, Joe Jackson, who's a slimey pig, and even Katherine, who is being pushed into it, are all trying to come up with a way to make more money off Michael's death.



  12. 12

    Re: MJ fan59 – Nonzenze. If AEG knew Murray was unsafe there is NO WAY they'd have allowed him to be around Michael. Michael was their investment. It was a HUGE deal to rehearse and mount a show. For them to invest time and money and work with someone when they know certain things are going on, is ridiculous. Those promoters/producers with who work with these Mega-stars will not waste their time on something that is too shakey. Michael's family is doing this because they are feeling guilty themselves.

    Ugly sue happy greedy cu*t$

    Re: CuddlyCarla – The reason that the Freak is dead is because he wes a precription drug junkie. Would of ended up dead with or without the shows being booked. The freak was just a modern Elvis!

    Quote: Murray was using and the methods that he was using was not safe nor was it supposed to be going on outside of a hospital setting and that is why they agreed to have proper resusitation equipment.

    That has NOTHING to do with AEG. That is MURRAY'S responsiblity. If he didn't have the proper equipment is was HIS call not to use PROPOFOL. AEG is not responsible for HIS negligence.

    Re: taterkat – this is for real taterkat. perezzo why dont u adress one of the huge real reasons why michael has passed–the music industry? shady business? deadly business when michael tried to call them out, tommy motolla the devill.. ever heard of "illuminati" perez? whether thats the name or not when you call them out which michael did in his last year they dont like that and theres only one way out…God bless michael and this nasty music industry God bless the pawns playing the game now hope they get their souls back… beyonce.. gaga..jayz

    Re: MJ fan59 – you blame EVERYONE but MJ. what is with that? he hired them. He was the addict. Fuck you. ROt in HELL PEDOPHILE JACKSON. Bugs are eating him, ha ha ha ha



  20. 20

    The whole Jackson family are such lying trash. Trying to find a "killer"? MJ did himself in. The family needs to take responsibility that he was an addict. LaToya has written they all knew of his LOVE for little BOYS, and how they slept over when he was still living with his family.

    Re: angelwolf333 – Michael was 50. Out of all the things you stated that were wrong, you could have atleast got that right.

    Re: lemonbird – "Nonzenze. If AEG knew Murray was unsafe there is NO WAY they'd have allowed him to be around Michael."

    You do realize that AEG was well aware of the fact that Murray was giving Michael hospital meds. in a home setting correct? AEG knew that Michael was being given those meds. in order for him to relax and get rest so they allowed that to take place because they wanted to make sure that their "investment" as you called it would be ready to give 100%. Murray, though he was doing the wrong thing, did ask for equipment that would need to be in place in case of an emergency and that equipment was to be provided by AEG and it was in the contract. So, AEG signed off on this contract knowing damn well what was going on but like Michael they put their trust into Murray to see that Michael had all the rest he needed so he could perform.

    Re: Studio 54 – "That has NOTHING to do with AEG. That is MURRAY'S responsiblity. If he didn't have the proper equipment is was HIS call not to use PROPOFOL. AEG is not responsible for HIS negligence."

    Then why did AEG sign off on it in their own contract?? They agreed to these terms but in NO way thought for a second that anything would go wrong. Something did go terribly wrong so now they should have to own up to their part in the whole mess. Their saying Michael is the one who hired Murray and used him for awhile as a personal doctor to try and get them out of hot water. Well, first off Michael used Murray once when he lived in Vegas to take care of his kids when they were sick. Secondly, AEG put Michael thru a couple physicals etc. to make sure he could perform his job yet you'd think they would follow up and look into the doctor who was going to be taking care of their "money maker." Even if Michael said he wanted Murray as his doctor that doesn't mean that AEG didn't have any part in it. Heck, they were paying him! Long story short… Yes, Murray acted negligently but so did AEG because they let things go on and just turned a blind eye to it even after knowingly saying they would take care of certain things.

    AEG is going to eat her ass alive!

    Re: lemonbird

    Mrs. Jackson isn't being push into, anything, you idiot! She's not a fucking saint! Deal with it.



  26. 26

    Re: lemonbird – you do realise how much money AEG have made since Michael passed away??
    they even charged the fans the full ticket price for those who still wanted their T.I.I. tickets to keep as a souviener, knowing full well that alot of michaels devoted fans would indeed go for that option…
    its only ever about MONEY!!

    Re: Praire Dog – The reason that the Freak is dead is because he wes a precription drug junkie.
    /
    that comment is so ignorant.
    Michael may have been addicting to prescription drugs in the past following the burns he suffered to his scalp but he did not not die because he was addicted to prescription drugs.
    Michael died because he was given an overdose of propofol, (which is not available on prescription)
    the only drugs in his body were the ones Dr Murray gave him, the ones AEG knew Dr Murray were given him.



  28. 28

    AEG are by no means innocent in all this, Randy Phillips is as shady as they come and i thought that before Michael died.
    when the concerts sold out he was the at the o2 in london, you could see the dollar signs in his eyes.
    they put their own greed before michaels health and wellbeing, they turned a blind eye on what was going on because they wanted michael on that stage regardless, they knew michael had problems with sleeping, but instead of insisting on alternative methods of help they just let Murray carry on!
    Mrs Jackson knows alot more than we do im sure, which is why she is sueing them.
    AEG, Dr Murray, and goodness knows who else has blood on their hands.
