Michael Jackson’s mother Katherine is suing AEG Live for $40 billion in a wrongful death lawsuit. She contends that AEG Live should have been more responsible in hiring Dr. Conrad Murray to supervise Michael’s healthcare needs.
Michael’s medical records have been sealed — as he was a very private person, but his level of addiction to prescription medications will be revealed in court. An insider said, “The contents of the records will stun even the most die-hard Michael Jackson fan. Michael’s dependence on prescription drugs for routine cosmetic procedures was astounding. The judge has allowed AEG to present Michael’s medical records to prove their point that he was addicted to drugs, and the lengths he would go to keep it hidden.”
The source continued, “They had absolutely no knowledge that Dr. Murray would be giving Michael Propofol at his home. If AEG did, they would have terminated talks with Murray immediately, and taken the appropriate action. AEG doesn’t want to present this evidence, but they are being sued by Katherine for $40 BILLION DOLLARS.”
A source close to Katherine revealed that the case centers around “whether or not AEG did their due diligence in fully vetting Conrad Murray to become Michael Jackson’s personal physician for his London concerts. Katherine’s lawyers maintain that AEG should have known that Conrad Murray was in dire financial straits and broke when formal talks began for him to become Michael’s doctor. Murray wanted $150k a month, and that should have set off alarm bells for AEG.”
