The Jackson family is so sue happy, we've lost count of how many people they've sued since Michael Jackson's death.
Michael's mother Katherine Jackson is the latest family member to jump on the bandwagon. She's suing concert promoters AEG Live for putting Michael is harms way.
The lawsuit claims that Michael was disoriented and shivering at his final rehearsal for his shows at the UK capital’s 02 Arena,
adding: “AEG had legal duties to Michael Jackson to treat him safely and to not put him in harm’s way.
“But AEG, despite its knowledge of Michael Jackson’s physical condition, breached those duties by putting its desire for massive
profits from the tour over the health and safety of Michael Jackson.”
Also revealed in the lawsuit, it is alleged Dr. Conrad Murray, who has been charged with the involuntary manslaughter of the singer, made medical decisions under the control of the company, who were paying him $150,000 a month to work as his private physician.
According to the suit: “AEG knew or should have known that it was jeopardizing Jackson’s health and safety by assuming control over the doctor-patient relationship between Jackson and Murray, and by directing and influencing Murray to act without regard to medical safety standards.”
It also accused AEG’s “actions and inactions” to leave the world without “its most celebrated entertainer."
The lawsuit, which was filed on Wednesday at the Los Angeles Superior Court, adds: "Due to AEG's actions and inactions, three
loving children lost their father, a loving mother and father lost their son, the Jackson siblings lost their brother, and the world lost its most celebrated entertainer.”
Katherine, who was named the guardian of Michael's three kids Prince Michael, 13 Paris, 12, and eight-year-old Prince Michael II, known as Blanket, claims they to have been put in “harm’s way” by the company.
While dealing with the loss of a child is never easy, the Jackson's seem to blame AEG for all of Michael's problems, which isn't necessarily the case. Story developing...
