Like a cold sore from hell, this just will NOT go away!

The King of Pop was taken from us over four years ago, but his wrongful death lawsuit lived on. We thought it was FINALLY over late last month when a verdict was returned and AEG was cleared of any wrongdoing, but nope!

Not so fast!

Michael Jackson's mom Katherine Jackson has filed an appeal!

The Jackson estate is contesting the jury's verdict and hopes to reopen the $40 billion lawsuit they brought against the insurance company for hiring Dr. Conrad Murray in the first place!

Apparently it's super difficult to overturn jury verdicts in a civil case, but none of that will stop mama bear from trying!

Michael Jackson's OTHER Doctor Now Involved In Lawsuit!

michael jacksons other doctor involved in lawsuitDr. Murray will certainly be pleased to hear this.

To recap, the Jacksons have been immersed in a wrongful death lawsuit against MJ's doctor Conrad Murray for quite some time now.

Back in March, Dr. Murray filed legal documents claiming that Michael Jackson's OTHER doctor, Arnold Klein, got him addicted to Demerol and "another powerful narcotic."

Now it looks like Dr. Conrad Murray's claims are being substantiated, because Dr. Klein's former assistant Jason Pfeiffer is filing a lawsuit against the doctor for providing "serious drugs" to MJ.

Here are the allegations that Pfeiffer made against Dr. Klein in the lawsuit:

Joe Jackson Invests In Five-Star Hotel And Amusement Park…In Vietnam

joe jackson invests in vietnam amusement park and hotel

Is it just us, or is this kind of strange?

Back in December, we were pretty skeptical about Joe Jackson's persistent efforts to pursue the wrongful death lawsuit against Dr. Conrad Murray. Seemed to us like Joe was looking for a pay day.

Now, it appears that we've learned why Joe might have wanted some extra $$$ - to invest in a five-star hotel/amusement park in Vietnam called Happyland.

That's right, folks. Jackson invested in the $2 million billion 1,000-room hotel/amusement park in the southern Long An province in Vietnam, which is scheduled to be completed in 2014.

Here's what Jackson had to say about it:

"I like discovering different cultures in the world. I like this project the most because it is located in a beautiful cultural and natural space."

We certainly can appreciate the desire to discover different cultures, but when Joe Jackson originally filed the wrongful death lawsuit on Michael's behalf, he never stated that the money would be going towards an amusement park and fancy hotel…in Vietnam.

Weird.

Thoughts???

Katherine Challenges AEG's Dismissal Of Wrongful Death Lawsuit

katherine-jackson-files-leg.jpg

Katherine Jackson filed legal documents to challenge AEG's motion to dismiss the wrongful death lawsuit against the company.

She thinks the AEG knew what they were doing when they paid Dr. Conrad Murray an "exorbitant salary of $150,000 monthly," in order to "get Jackson to attend rehearsals and perform."

Katherine added that it should have been obvious something was going down when Dr. Murray requested CPR equipment at Michael's home that "the medical treatments being administered risked stopping Jackson's heart and breathing."

Her lawyer added:

"This is hardly the type of risk expected in an ordinary house visit from a family doctor. "AEG should have known that the course of treatment being administered by Dr. Murray was unorthodox and unsafe."

That may be true, but is it their responsibility?!

Thoughts???
