Michael Jackson's mother Katherine is suing the concert promoter behind the late star's ill-fated comeback shows - alleging they failed to ensure the King of Pop's wellbeing.
The Jackson matriarch filed suit on Wednesday (15Sep10) against bosses at AEG Live, the company which organised the Thriller star's planned London gigs, for fraud and negligence.
In court papers - which Jackson also filed on behalf of her son's three children - she accuses AEG Live chiefs of failing to undertake background checks on Dr. Conrad Murray, who has pleaded not guilty to administering a fatal dose of Propofol to the superstar last year (09), stating, "AEG did not provide a doctor who was truly looking out for Jackson's well-being and did not provide equipment."
The suit also alleges that Jackson's oldest son, Prince, was left in emotional distress after witnessing paramedics trying to bring his dad back to life.
The papers add, "During the course of Michael Jackson being injured and dying, his son Michael Joseph Jackson, Jr. witnessed his father suffering, and accordingly has suffered great trauma and severe emotional distress."
Katherine Jackson's lawyer Brian J. Panish released a statement after filing the case, saying, "The purpose of this lawsuit is to prove to the world the truth about what happened to Michael Jackson, once and for all."
Jackson is seeking unspecified damages.

Imagine Prince having to witness his father being in distress. That so called doctor called Prince to MJ's bedroom to witness it all. What a pathetic, cold, heartless person he is.Prince will always see that picture of his father forever.AEG didn't care about Michael! All they could see was the dollar signs!I really care what happens to Prince, Paris and Michael for the future. I only wish them all the best in whatever challenges they take on. They will do it in memory of their beloved father.We love you more Prince, Paris, and Blanket!

It's about time Katherine decided to fight for Michael & his children. I guess she had to go through all the stages of grief. I can't wait for the truth to come out. The Jackson matriachs are on point now with Joe suing the estate atorneys as well as Murray. I hope they all pay dearly for taking Michael from us.

Wow...It is time now and yes this action is on point.. It always bothered me that the Doctor called for Prince and that Prince had to witness this...Thank you KJ! R.I.P MJ. The doctor did request the equipment and a nurse too..His request was not fulfilled by AEG their focus was warped. Apparently the CEO pf AEG went to see MJ and "read him the riot act because MJ missed a referral. Remember when MJ's chef Kai said that MJ told her "they are killing me". He was very tired and his schedule was all out of wack too...

When Randy Phillips (EVIL BASTARD) from AEG was asked whether or not he thought AEG promoting concerts for Michael Jackson was worth it and if he would do it again, despite Michael's DEATH, the evil bastard Phillips said "Heck yeah. I'd do it again in a heartbeat!!" How SICK & TWISTED. I NEVER believed Michael hired Conrad Murray and I never believed he was in good health to do those shows. The results of the physical done by the insurance people was more than likely FALSIFIED to make Michael look like he was in perfect form. They couldn't afford to have him back out of the tour. Randy told Michael "he will do the shows even if it KILLS him" WTF??? Despicable and disgusting. All the people around Michael should be HEAVILY investigated.

Thank you Katherine for filing suit against AEG for what the did to Michael as well as his children. I believe she should file legal charges against Murray for what he made those children witness while their father was dying. Katherine is going to make sure that the world finds out the truth about that fatal day...thank you a million times over. We all deserve to know the truth but more important the Jackson family needs to know what happen to Michael. Those children need to know so they can move on..Keep fighting for the truth to be known!!!!
