Jackson’s Mother Sues Concert Promoter AEG Live

Michael Jackson’s mother has sued the promoter of what were intended to be the pop star’s comeback concerts for fraud and other claims related to the singer’s death.

The complaint filed in Los Angeles on Wednesday accused AEG Live of failing to honor its agreement to provide the doctor charged in the singer’s death with lifesaving equipment.

The suit says AEG Live is liable for the actions of Dr. Conrad Murray, who has pleaded not guilty to involuntary manslaughter in Jackson’s death at age 50.

Katherine Jackson, who is the guardian of the singer’s three children, also sued on their behalf.

AEG spokesman Michael Roth says the company has not seen the lawsuit and had no immediate comment.
