The Jacksons have always been known to exaggerate numbers. No surprise one of their witnesses is a shill for them.

But the child molestation accusations and the baby dangling incident did not stop This Is It from having sold out tickets.

AEG is blowing a lot of hot air before the payout. Bwahahahaha

AEG at least doesnt confuse hype with business. The Jacksons have never been able to distinguish between the two. The lawyers had a shouting match after the cross BTW. I'd have liked to have been the fly on the wall to that! LOL

AEG are playing down MJ's earning power in the same way they pretended they weren't aware of his physical and mental condition.

Jacksons physical and mental condition was as obvious as his earning power: Both were questionable.

From what is known until now from the trial transcripts, Jackson would have likely collapsed on stage in the 3rd or 4th show and would have cancelled the rest of the shows. They would have announced a postponement but would never have done the rest of the shows: See 1995 HBO concert as an example. End of story.

If Michael Jackson was so sick and frail how could he be expected to earn 1 billion from a tour. The Jacksons keep changing their story first they say Jackson was too sick and that AEG was at fault for pushing Jackson to do a tour that would of killed him. Now they say that he would of been strong enough to do a 1 billion world wide tour. If I was on the jury right now I would vote for AEG because the Jacksons are not showing any credibility in their statements. They want to blame AEG for propofol when Jackson was doing propofol years ago before AEG entered the picture.

It's the Jackson family talking out of their rear ends again. One moment Michael is a frail, pathetic, mess and the next he's healthy and making money out of his ass crack.

Also, if we must remember in the months leading up to the so-called "comeback concerts", the Jackson family was trying to get their sick and ill-minded brother to renege the AEG deal to do a reunion concert tour. Both Joseph and Katherine tried to get MJ to leave AEG, MJ refused. So I doubt the Jacksons cared for his well-being. Shoot, MJ sure didn't. AEG and Conrad at least tried to get Michael on the good foot but MJ acted like a spoiled child that wanted his drugs.

Katherine Jackson has a sweet face and talks so sweet but this is the phoniest Jehova Witness I ever saw! In fact the Jehova Witnesses should throw her out of their congregation. She is greedy and allowed Michael to get beat years ago to the point he could of been killed! Then years ago Latoya came on Phil Donahue show and said Joe her father was having sex with her and that her mother allowed it. Sick sick family. That is why Latoya cannot have a relationship with a man she is afraid of them! They should have been arrested years ago! How they gave custody of Prince, Paris and Blanket is beyond me. Katherine is a weak minded greedy pig! Now she wants 5 billion on the death of her son. Give the John Lennon heiress her money first! That is the law but is not being carried out the right way.

Good point. AEG are being accused of taking advantage of a frail, underweight and drug dependent Wacko yet mama Jackson's team are now claiming he could have gone on to performed until at least his mid-60s and made well over $1 billion in the process.

Money, money, and more money. That's the beat the entire Jackson clan marches to. The entire bunch make me nauseous.

AEG trial update:

Just to let you folks above to know I was just watching CNN and AEG defense is starting next week.
AEG is WARNING that there is private ugly stuff to come about Michael Jackson. So now I feel pretty confident that this could be about the Beatle Catalogue and the fraud but I don't know for sure. If AEG wants to save itself they will have to use everything in its power and the fraud that Michael hid could be the private ugly stuff to come. I surely hope so. I enjoyed talking to eveyone on the web posting site and I hope you are all having a good summer!

The trial is now expected to go until September 15th 2013 starting next week with AEG defense. Michael Jackson's mother will take the stand tomorrow until the end of this week.

That right! One rendition of "Billie Jean" is all the f'loons would hear from Wacko in London and then BOOM! The grim reaper takes Michael Jackson to hell where he rightly belongs.

But you are wrong because they are using all the negative media stories to support their case which don't have anything to do with AEG's having Murray on their payroll. Remember if Murray had of not been in the picture the concerts could have be done. It was only after MJ had been on propofol for 60 days that he showed signs of not being capable of performing them.

Interesting information. I didn't realize Joe and Katherine were trying to talk him into a comeback tour. So much for their drug-addicted family member being too frail to perform. He had trouble performing because he was a drug addict.

Really? Explain why Papa Joe and Mama Kate were begging their drug addicted son to reunite with his brothers and he told them "hell nah". Oh and nice you called me a loser, I'm sure that'll convince me.
