Many people have been wondering about this for a very long time. According to TMZ the late Michael Jackson’s mother is suing AEG Live for the death of her son “The King Of Pop” on behalf of his children. And the sum of money that they are asking for is not for the faint of heart!
Katherine Jackson and Michael’s three children are suing for 40 billion dollars!
AEG Live, is the entertainment company that hired Dr. Conrad Murray to take care of the iconic singer. And as we all know, Dr. Conrad Murray was held responsible for Michael’s death in a court of law. So, many people figured that AEG would have been sued for monetary damages years ago.
TMZ reports that AEG says, “the $40 billion is preposterous because Michael’s career was in a downward spiral following the child molestation allegations, as well as self-imposed exile in the Middle East. The damage claim is based on rank speculation.”
Is that blaming the victim though? And didn’t they think enough of MJ’s future earning potential to invest all that money into his “This Is It Tour” in the first place? If his career was over, why would such a big and powerful company invest the sort of dollars that they did in him at all? Seems like that might be against the teachings of classes like “Smart Business Practices 101″. But we leave it to you! What do you think? Take the poll and let us know!
