Now that he no longer blames ex-wife Katherine for Michael Jackson‘s death (“she isn’t at fault,” he told PopEater), Papa Joe Jackson has found a new focus for his outrage, one with unsurprisingly big pockets. TMZ says the elder Jackson has filed a complaint against AEG Live, the company behind Michael’s planned This Is It concert series. According to the legal documents, the infamous Dr. Conrad Murray requested the company pay for a heart resuscitation machine and nurses for Michael before his untimely Propofol overdose. The company never came up with the goods, which Joe thinks they could have saved his estranged son’s life (of course, Michael could have easily purchased this goods for himself, but let’s not worry about that now).
Though he has yet to file for damages, one can safely assume these complaints are prelude for such an action. Jackson sued Murray for wrongful death last March, despite having no apparent legal claim to any losses, and even being left out of Michael’s will. Does Joe hope to be a fly in everyone’s ointment long enough to get a settlement? It’s hard to believe how else he’ll ever see a return on his legal fees.
