AEG President Gets Hostile on the Witness Stand in Jackson Suit

Posted by

A California courtroom heated up on Wednesday, June 5, 2013 during testimony of AEG Live LLC’s (AEG) president Randy Phillips. In 2010, Michael Jackson’s mother, Katherine Jackson, sued AEG for negligently hiring and supervising Dr. Conrad Murray. Dr Murray served as Jackson’s physician during the 2009 “This Is It” concert series and was convicted of the involuntary manslaughter of Jackson. The lawsuit contends that AEG, and AEG executives ignored signs that should have alerted them that Jackson’s life was in danger.

Phillips, a named co-defendant in the suit, was ready to rumble during his courtroom testimony on Wednesday, June 5, 2013. Philips was more than a bit difficult in answering questions from plaintiff attorney Brian Panish regarding a series of 2009 meetings about Jackson’s health. The showdown between Phillips and Panish led the Superior Court Judge to demand that both men “simmer down.”

In his testimony, Philips detailed the days leading up to Jackson’s death. He testified that before a press conference to publicity announce the “This Is It” tour, Jackson was “locked in his room drunk and despondent.” Phillips described Jackson as being “an emotionally paralyzed mess riddled with self-loathing and doubt now that it is showtime.”

Phillips described the lawsuit as an attempt for the Jackson estate to extort money from AEG Live. Katherine Jackson was not present in court for Phillips testimony. The courtroom action will likely continue, with anticipated rumbles between AEG defendants and the Jackson estate.
