We know Michael Jackson's death was tragic and all, but it's kind of sleazy how his crazy father Joe seems bent on blaming/suing everyone on the planet for it.
It's like he wants to sponge off of his son for attention and/or money, even after the music icon passed away. We'd feel bad implying that if it weren't obvious.
In any case, Joe's latest beef - he's already sued Dr. Conrad Murray and blamed Katherine Jackson, his own wife, for Michael's untimely demise - is with AEG.
Murray requested lifesaving equipment and back-up help for Michael from his London concert promoter, Joe claims, but the company never came through.
Joe Jackson is gunning for AEG by filing complaints with the California Medical Board and another agency, alleging that the concert promoter abused his son.
Joe Jackson is going after Dr. Conrad Murray ... and his corporate boss.
Days before MJ's death, Murray had requested a heart resuscitation machine and a nurse in several e-mails making the request, but AEG never provided it.
Joe is accusing AEG of co-opting Dr. Conrad Murray's medical judgment by enticing him with a huge salary, an "unlawful practice of corporate medicine."
Besides the CPR machine, he also asked for saline, catheters, needles and a gurney. The doc, of course, has been charged with involuntary manslaughter.
Murray is expected to argue that, as an addict used to getting his way, Michael Jackson killed himself with a lethal Propofol injection when he wasn't looking.
That allegation promoted a wrongful death suit from Joe. What will his next move be? Who knows. Just another day in a saga unfolding for nearly a year.
