Michael Jackson’s Family, Kids Want $40 Billion in Wrongful Death Suit
There might be a boatload of money exchanging hands in the wrongful death lawsuit of the late Michael Jackson. According to TMZ, the family is suing for $40 billion dollars, which is a huge chunk of money. They defendant in the suit is AEG Live, an entertainment company that hired Dr. Conrad Murray.
Dr. Murray is the man who was convicted of killing Michael and some blame Michael’s addiction to drugs on his death. But there are others who feel that Dr. Murray should never have given in to Michael’s impulses.
Michael’s children, Prince, Paris, and Blanket joined forced with his mother Katherine are saying that $10 billion is for the future earnings that their father would have had if he’d remained alive. The rest is for other damages, such as pain and suffering. AEG is saying that the number is out of control, since Michael’s career was on the down slide at the time of his death and that there is no way he could have earned that kind of money performing.
