Dr. Conrad Murray Suing AEG For Back Pay

by at . Comments

Dr. Conrad Murray, Michael Jackson's personal physician, is gearing up to sue AEG, the entertainment company sponsoring his ill-fated This Is It tour this year.

AEG was paying Murray's costs as he served as MJ's doctor. Michael died June 25 of an apparent overdose of Propofol, a strong anesthesia, it is widely believed.

According to Miranda Sevcik, publicist for Dr. Murray's lawyer, Ed Chernoff, AEG still owes the good doc $300,000 - two months' pay - and is "dragging its feet."

Conrad Murray has not been paid for his services, in spite of the fact that he claims he signed a binding deal with AEG before giving up his medical practice.

Dr. Conrad Murray seeks money for "services" rendered.

He will not file a creditor's claim against Jackson's estate, but Murray "needs the money and he's entitled to money based on the contract he signed with AEG."

AEG did not comment, but we wouldn't hold our breath if we were Conrad.

After all, he was being paid to keep Jackson healthy in preparation for and on tour. That tour never ended up happening because of ... well, it's obvious, isn't it?

The guy died. Murray was responsible for his treatment. Janet Jackson blames him and he is the target of a months-long homicide investigation by the LAPD.

Somehow, we're guessing that may nullify the contract. Just a hunch.
