ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 17h
Gongaware said he never did background check on anyone he hired and had he done one on Dr. Murray, it would've been out of the ordinary.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 17h
As how MJ was, Gongaware said he was great. He didn't think he had relapsed, was using painkillers again and said MJ had always been thin.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 17h
"It wasn't surprising he wanted a doctor," Gongaware expressed.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 17h
Dr. Finkelstein, a friend of Gongaware, said a doctor should charge $10,000 a month for the tour work.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 17h
But Dr. Finkelstein would've done it for free, since he was on the Dangerous tour before and had a lot of fun.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 17h
The second call about Dr. Murray came from Michael Amir Williams saying they were going to need to get a deal done for the doctor.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 17h
Gongaware said he heard MJ in the car saying "offer 150, offer 150." Gongaware understood that to be $150k/month.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 17h
Gongaware called Dr. Murray, said he was authorized to offer him $150k a month. He said Dr. Murray responded that he couldn't do it for that

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 17h
Gongaware told him the offer came directly from the artist and Dr. Murray responded: I'll take it.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 17h
Gongaware said Michael approved the amount of compensation. "Michael told me offer 150," Gongaware recalled. "And that's what I did."

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 17h
Gongaware inquired Dr. Murray how he would get a license in London and the doctor told him not to worry about it.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 17h
They talked about Dr. Murray's request for a house in London, and the doctor said he would need a three bedroom house.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 17h
Gongaware recalled Dr. Murray saying he would probably need an assistant and some equipment, but no details were given at this point.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 17h
After the call, Gongaware said he let Michael Amir Williams know what the result was in an email. "Done at 150k per month, per MJ."

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 17h
Gongaware said this was a message for MJ, that he had done what he asked. He didn't receive any response back from Michael Amir Williams.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 17h
Gongaware said he passed Dr. Murray on to Timm Wooley, never had any other conversation with Dr. Murray about him possibly going to London.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 17h
Putnam: Do you have any understanding as to whether a contract with Dr. Murray was executed?
Gongaware: One never was

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 17h
Putnam: Did AEG pay Dr. Murray any kind of money?
Gongaware: No

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 17h
Gongaware said MJ was ultimately responsible for his own health: "I think everyone is responsible for their own health and well being."

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 17h
MJ was a grown man with capability to make decisions regarding his health and medical care, Gongaware explained.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 17h
Dancers auditions took place at the Nokia Theater on April 13, 14, 15. MJ attended the last day and made the final decision, Gongaware said.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 17h
Putnam played a clip of the dancers audition. Gongaware said MJ was very involved and chose the dancers.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 17h
Gongaware said Ortega wanted to film the audition to use fresh footage on http://michaeljacksonlive.com

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 17h
The cost for crew to shoot the audition was very high, so Gongaware bought couple of cameras and use his own crew to shoot the rehearsals.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 17h
He said he wasn't sure what he would use the video for, but thought the website would be a good platform.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 17h
Gongaware said during the period at Center Staging, MJ was good, engaging, didn't think MJ had any health issues or was using drugs.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 17h
Gongaware said the media in the UK was going wild with gossip about Michael Jackson. "They just lie about things."

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 17h
The Sun claimed MJ had skin cancer on his chest. "It was sport over in London," Gongaware said about MJ's stories on tabloids.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 17h
Gongaware on 5/27/09:
The Kid is healthy and rehearsing every day. He was still there at dance rehearsals at 9pm last night when I left.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 17h
Email cont'd: Our redemption will be when he does his shows, that makes all of this build up so damn sweet.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 17h
Email cont'd: We don't have to sell tickets, so we can just sit back and prove them wrong by just doing it.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 17h
Gongaware said he was not concerned. "If there was something going on, if he had cancer, we would've heard about it."

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 17h
He said if the rumor about the cancer were true, they would've to deal with a lot to accommodate the shows.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 17h
Gongaware said while they were rehearsing at Center Staging, he was not concerned with MJ's health.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 17h
Michael Jackson rehearsal venues:
Mar 28- Center Staging
May 27- Forum
June 23 - Staples Center
July 13 - O2 Arena

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 17h
Gongaware said he never told security guard to get MJ to rehearsals, whatever it takes. He said he never told anyone to get MJ 2 rehearsals

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 17h
Putnam went through chain of email about tabloid reports in the UK regarding MJ.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 17h
In one, it said MJ had asked AEG to reduce the number of shows by half. Gongaware said that such a discussion never happened.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 17h
Gongaware testified he woke up to one gossip headline pretty much every day. His idea was simply to ignore the tabloids.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 17h
An amazing show would be the answer, Gongaware said.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 17h
Gongaware on 6/5/09 in response to Sunday Mirror Query:

"We can only make this work, of course, if MJ puts on the best show of his life.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 17h
Email cont'd: I'm here to tell you that be will. I have seen it for myself. Last night he ran 9 songs with full band, singers and dancers.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 17h
Email cont'd: Sang every one, he was amazing, captivating, riveting. And he's just getting started.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 17h
Email cont'd: Taking it one step further. When people realize that bulls**t the press has been, they will be in receptive mood for the truth

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 17h
Email cont'd: Hey look. No skin cancer. He's just a good dad, loving raising his kids. His art and his craft are paramount.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 17h
Email cont'd: A gentile, loving man who does care about people.

"The shows were going to be spectacular," Gongaware said.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 17h
Putnam showed clip of MJ in front of green screen with 11 dancers, who would become 11,000.

Gongaware said MJ was great at this point.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 17h
Regarding email Phillips sent Gongaware directing to remove MJ's "skeletal" scenes Gongaware said he didn't take anything out of the movie.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 17h
Putnam: Did you remove anything from the movie?
Gongaware: No

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 17h
Putnam showed clip from TII with making of Thriller 3D and Jackson wearing red jacket.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 17h
Putnam: Did you try to alter in anyway how Mr. Jackson looked, appeared?
Gongaware: No

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 17h
Gongaware said he didn't remember any of the footage been removed because of how MJ looked. "We just let the footage speak for itself."

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 17h
The mini-movie of "Earth" a bulldozer would come out from a ramp in center stage.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 17h
Putnam: A real bulldozer?
Gongaware: I wish, it would've been cheaper, but it would have crushed our ramps

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 17h
Gongaware said they had to build the bulldozer like a prop. It would appear at the end of the song on stage.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 17h
"I think the live audience would be just captivated by it," Gongaware said about the little girl running after the last plant on Earth song.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 17h
End of the show would be 3D animation. An airplane taxis up, door opens, Michael entered the plane.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 17h
The airplane door closes, MJ would actually take an elevator down and out of the building, but plane would take off over the audience.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 17h
Gongaware said he didn't know if anyone was responsible for MJ's nourishment. Tour would be demanding and exhausting.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 17h
Gongaware said he met Dr. Murray once at MJ's Carolwood house and ran into him at The Forum during rehearsal.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 17h
There was a meeting scheduled to discuss MJ's nutrition with Randy Phillips, Kenny Ortega, Dr. Murray, MJ, Gongaware and DiLeo.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 17h
Putnam: Do you recall anyone in that meeting ever tell Dr. Murray how he should be treating MJ?
Gongaware: No

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 17h
Gongaware said neither Dr. Murray nor MJ talked about the treatment singer was receiving. The meeting was about nutrition, vitamin, therapy

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 17h
Gongaware said he had no idea Dr. Murray was giving MJ Propofol and first heard of the anesthetic after Michael died.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 17h
Gongaware said Dr. Murray was really engaged in the meeting, seemed like a very intelligent guy and wanted to take care of MJ very much.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 17h
This was the first time Gongaware had with Dr. Murray. He said there were no signs of MJ being poorly treated by the doctor.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 17h
"Michael was engaged in the meeting, attentive, seemed happy we were having this meeting," Gongaware opined.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 16h
"He's a doctor, he'd know better than anybody how to treat his patient," Gongaware said about Dr. Murray.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 17h
Gongaware said he was never present on any meeting where anyone told Dr. Murray how to treat MJ.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 16h
As to Gongaware's email saying AEG, not MJ, paid Dr Murray he said he mistaken. "We wouldn't pay his salary, we'd advance Michael's money"

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 16h
Gongaware said he didn't remember writing/receiving the email, but never denied he did it.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 16h
"Michael Jackson would be paying his salary, but AEG would advance the money," Gongaware testified.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 16h
As to MJ being habitual late, Gongaware said the singer worked on his own schedule, did things his way.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 16h
Gongaware said his understanding was that MJ hired a trainer of his choice, Louis (Lou) Ferrigno.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 16h
"I made the deal with him (Ferrigno). He was supposed to be paid certain amount of money per session," Gongaware said.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 16h
Putnam showed email from Travis Payne, he suggested massage chair 2 be put in MJ's dressing room. Gongaware said it wasn't callous treatment

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 16h
As to Bugzee's email saying MJ needed cheeseburgers, brats and beers, Gongaware said Bugzee was joking, Bugzee cared very much for MJ.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 16h
Gongaware testified he didn't recall having any concern about MJ's health/using painkillers as of Monday 6/15/09, 10 days prior to his death

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 16h
Gongaware said on 6/19/09, he was out of town. "This is the day Michael had chills at rehearsal and was apparently sick," Gongaware recalled

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 16h
"If the meeting was going to be about what happened that night, the doctor should be there," Gongaware said.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 16h
Gongaware: If his patient is sick and he's your only patient, doctor should be there!

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 16h
Gongaware said he believed MJ wanted to go on tour. He said he doesn't remember anyone talking about pulling the plug on the shows.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 16h
Putnam: Did anyone tell you at this point that MJ needed a drug addiction specialist?
Gongaware: No

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 16h
Putnam: Did anyone tell you they were concerned with the care Dr. Murray was giving to MJ?
Gongaware: No

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 16h
Gongaware said that on 6/20/09 he did not think MJ's health was deteriorating.

Gongaware and Phillips were concerned with MJ's well being.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 16h

AEG executive: Healthy Michael Jackson hired Conrad Murray himself

A top executive with AEG was still on the stand Monday in the Michael Jackson wrongful death trial. He clashed with Jackson family attorneys on Jackson's health and the hiring of the pop star's personal physician.

After a 12-year hiatus, Michael Jackson faced a full schedule of concerts for his comeback tour. Was the lineup of 50 concerts too ambitious?

AEG executive Paul Gongaware, a key defendant in Jackson's wrongful death lawsuit, testified Monday that it was not rigorous and would not be uncommon for a 50-year-old artist. Gongaware is CEO of AEG Live, the concert promoter being sued in the wrongful death suit.

Gongaware told the court that Jackson approved the schedule, which was spread over nine months with a three-month break in the middle. Furthermore, he testified, Jackson would not have to travel. All the shows would be in London's O2 arena.

The defense showed the jury a clip of Jackson in rehearsal. Gongaware says the star was excited, involved, and that Jackson wanted the biggest, best show ever.

AEG Live and its two CEOs are accused of hiring Dr. Conrad Murray as Jackson's personal physician. In Murray's criminal trial, it was revealed that he administered an intravenous sedative to Jackson at night to help him sleep. Jackson died of an overdose.

Gongaware says that Murray initially demanded a fee of $5 million to care for Jackson. But Gongaware says that Jackson authorized $150,000 per month. Gongaware stressed in his testimony that Jackson was calling the shots about who he wanted.

AEG asserts that it was financing the tour for Jackson, who would pay it back with profits that would come later. In an email Gongware writes "This is not AEG money. It's MJ money ... "

Gongaware said he conducted no background check of Murray because Murray, he stated, was already Jackson's doctor.

Jurors were all taking notes as Gongaware went on.

"It was not my place to say who his doctor was going to be. It was his decision," said Gongaware.

Testimony was stopped as one juror felt ill. After he recovered, testimony resumed. Gongware will continue on the witness stand Tuesday.

AEG exec denies he pushed Jackson to rehearse

An AEG Live LLC executive denied Monday that he pushed Michael Jackson to rehearse for his ill-fated comeback concerts, refuting earlier testimony by the singer's longtime makeup artist and stylist.

Paul Gongaware said he never told Jackson's assistant to get the singer out of a locked bathroom and to a rehearsal, an incident that was described to jurors by makeup artist Karen Faye.

"Never, never happened," Gongaware said, shaking his head.

Faye testified last month that she overhead Gongaware tell Jackson's assistant to do "whatever it takes" to get the "Thriller" singer to a rehearsal. She described Gongaware as sounding "angry and kind of desperate" on the call.

Gongaware told jurors hearing a negligent hiring case filed by Jackson's mother that the entertainer was under no obligation to rehearse.

The differing accounts are just one of several pieces of contradictory information jurors will have to consider when testimony in the case concludes. Katherine Jackson is suing AEG Live, claiming it failed to properly investigate the physician convicted of administering an overdose of the anesthetic propofol to her son.

AEG denies it hired Conrad Murray, or could have known that Murray was giving the singer propofol as a sleep aid.

Faye, whose testimony was interrupted when other witnesses had to be called, will return to the witness stand before the trial's conclusion and is likely to be questioned by AEG's attorneys about the Gongaware incident.

Gongaware also said he was mistaken when he wrote in an email that his company was paying for Murray.

"We want to remind him that it is AEG, not MJ who is paying his salary," Gongaware wrote in the email, which was sent after Jackson missed rehearsals. "We want him to understand what is expected of him."

Gongaware said AEG agreed to advance Murray's $150,000 a month fee to Jackson, but the costs would have come out of the singer's share of "This Is It" earnings. He said he never instructed Murray about how to care for the singer.

The promoter and producer also told jurors on Monday that he never considered doing a background check on Murray, or anyone such as Faye, who was working directly with Jackson.

Murray had several liens and child support judgments and was facing foreclosure before agreeing to work with Jackson.

"I just expect doctors to be ethical," Gongaware said. "Their financial side of their life shouldn't affect their medical judgment."

The executive was shown several emails that he was sent less than a month before Jackson's death in which tabloid newspapers were speculating the singer was suffering from cancer.

Gongaware urged his company not to respond. "Our redemption will be when he does his shows," he wrote about Jackson. "We don't have to sell tickets, so we can just sit back and prove them wrong by just doing it."

The trial is entering its sixth week. AEG Live CEO Randy Phillips is expected to testify later this week.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 49m
Gongaware said MJ rehearsed on June 23rd. "He was fine," Gongaware described, saying his understanding was that MJ was okay.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 49m
Remember on June 19th was the day Gongaware said Michael Jackson had the chills and was apparently sick.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 48m
Gongaware said he wasn't being specifically attentive on the 23rd because he didn't think there was a problem with Michael.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 46m
MJ rehearsed on Jun 24th. Gongaware watched "Thriller" in its entirety, it was the 1st time they were using costume. He said MJ seemed fine.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 40m
Putnam: Was he engaged?
Gongaware: Yes
P: Any physical issues?
G: No, I didn't see any

"He did a good rehearsal," Gongaware testified.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 38m
On June 25th, Gongaware got a call from Randy saying he had a call from DiLeo asking him to go to MJ's house because something was going on.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 38m
As Randy got to Michael's house, an ambulance was leaving and Randy followed it to the hospital, Gongaware said.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 38m
"I didn't know what was going on," Gongaware said. "At that point I was apprehensive because I didn't know what was happening."

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 38m
Gongaware said he didn't hear anything for a while, so he called Randy to see what was going on and he said Michael had died.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 38m
"I was in shock," Gongaware recalled. "The artist was gone, he just passed away. How did this happen?!"

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 38m
Gongaware said he no idea what caused MJ to die, never contemplated the idea of Michael Jackson dying.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 37m
"I called Kenny right away and told him. He was at Staples Center," Gongaware recalled. "The atmosphere at Staples was very somber."

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 37m
After MJ's passing, Gongaware said they had to shut down production. He was then involved in Jackson's memorial service.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 36m
As to why TII was happening in London, Gongaware explained it was MJ's best market. "We didn't know how strong it would be."

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 35m
Putnam asked Gongaware if AEG considered tour in US. "No, he had all those child allegations flying, it was the wrong thing to do" he said.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 34m
Gongaware: He didn't tour very often, I don't think he liked it very much. There were lots of things he would be rather doing.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 34m
MJ never did "meet and greet", according to Gongaware.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 34m
The exec said Michael came out with the phrase "This Is It" because this was the last tour he was going to do.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 34m
MJ only agreed to 50 shows, but Gongaware said AEG Live was interested in more shows.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 34m
Gongaware worked on "Dangerous," "HIStory" and one Jacksons tour back in the 80s with MJ.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 34m
Dangerous lost money, Gongaware said, because a lot shows were canceled. History was probably pretty close to break even, the exec explained

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 34m
MJ did the "Bad" tour, but Gongaware was not involved in it.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 34m
MJ's primary concern was not making money off his shows, Gongaware said. His primary concern was with the art, the performance.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 33m
"This Is It" was supposed to be spectacular, Gongaware said. He would be doing 8-10 shows a month, so about 3 a week.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 32m
Gongaware said he never saw MJ take drugs.

Aside from drug use in 93, Gongaware said he didn't have any other knowledge of MJ using drugs

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 32m
"He was lively, engaged, he seemed happy," Gongaware said about MJ.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 32m
Gongaware described the time where he was at MJ's house for a meeting and MJ was late.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 32m
When MJ arrived, Gongaware said his speech was a little slurred, he wasn't quite the same. He was told Michael was at Dr. Klein's office.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 32m
Gongaware said he was not familiar with the doctors who treated MJ. Putnam announced be had no more questions at this time.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 30m
Jackson's atty Brian Panish began re-cross of Gongaware. He asked if the exec was concerned about MJ. "I certainly wanted him to do well"

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 30m
Panish: Were you concerned about his children and his family, sir?
Gongaware: I was concerned about him (MJ)

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 29m
Panish: How about his family and children, sir?
Gongaware: I supposed. I was focused on MJ.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 29m
"I believe he was a good father," Gongaware said about Michael Jackson.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 29m
Panish: Did you know he was a great son to his mother?
Gongaware: I believe he was

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 29m
P: After MJ died, did you ever send a card to his mother?
G: I don't think so
P: Did you ever call her to express your condolences?
G: No

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 29m
"I believe I testified truthfully," Gongaware said. "I don't believe I changed my testimony substantially."

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 27m
As to the email Gongaware wrote that AEG, not MJ, paid Dr. Murray Panish asked again if Gongaware recalled writing this email. He said no.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 26m
Gongaware said he spent 2 days with his lawyers preparing for his deposition, one-two hours discussing the email about AEG paying Dr. Murray

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 26m
Panish pointed out several answers Gongaware gave on his deposition and the changes he ask to make to transcript after meeting with attys

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 26m
Panish said Gongaware changed his testimony several times as a result of meeting with AEG's attorneys.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 25m
Panish said Gongaware also changed his testimony again while on the stand and under oath.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 25m
Panish tried to impeach Gongaware, which is a legal way to call into question the witness' credibility.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 24m
Later in the case, judge will instruct the jurors that if they think a person lied, they may disconsider part of all of his testimony.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 24m
As to the email about AEG paying Dr. Murray, Panish pointed out that Gongaware changed his answers several times throughout his testimony.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 23m
One time he said the email was shorthanded, normal course of business and didn't really think it was a mistake.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 23m
Yesterday, Gongaware answered the same question saying he was mistaken when he said AEG was paying Dr. Murray.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 23m
Gongaware explained he thinks he said the same thing but different ways.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 23m
Panish asked Gongaware if he hired Lou Ferrigno to be MJ's trainer. "I made a deal for Michael," Gongaware said.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 23m
Ferrigno was an independent contractor, Gongaware said he didn't know whether Ferrigno was submitting bills to his office.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 23m
Panish: So you stiffed Lou Ferrigno, you didn't pay the Incredible Hulk?
(Everyone in the courtroom laughed out loud)

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 23m
Gongaware: I don't know how he would get paid, if he would submit bills or not.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 23m
Panish said Gongaware testified yesterday that he was not concerned with MJ because he was working out with a trainer.

Today Gongaware testified MJ was going to work out with Lou Ferrigno.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 22m
Gongaware said he didn't know whether Ferrigno had an independent contract agreement or not and if he got paid.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 21m
Panish inquired about AEG only paying people with fully executed contract. Gongaware said he didn't know the status of Ferrigno's contract.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 21m
"I don't know specifically when Mr. Jackson saw trainers, but I believe he was seeing trainers," Gongaware explained.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 21m
Panish: He was seeing Lou Ferrigno to be in the next Incredible Hulk?
Gongaware: I don't think so

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 21m
Panish said Gongaware testified he was not concerned about MJ because he was working out with Lou Ferrigno. He said he didn't say that.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 21m
"When he was sick on June 19, I didn't know what was happening," Gongaware explained. "After that, MJ was great."

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 19m
"Dr Murray wasn't supposed to get paid. If MJ would've signed the deal, Dr Murray would've been paid for his work in London," Gongaware said

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 19m
Panish: You didn't have time to read budgets, you didn't have time to read contracts, right?
Gongaware: I didn't read budgets early on

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 19m
Panish asked if Gongaware had any doc to prove that Dr. Murray was told that anyone else, but AEG, was paying him. Gongaware didn't recall.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 19m
Panish: Did you have anything in writing saying it was MJ, not AEG, paying Dr. Murray?
Gongaware: I don't know

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 19m
Gongaware said he believed Dr. Murray signed one version the contract, but doesn't know whether the one showed to him was it.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 19m
Panish: You expected Dr Murray, just like Ferrigno, to get paid for services provided to AEG right sir?
Gongaware: He wasn't working for AEG

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 8h
Panish: If he was MJ's personal doctor, why hire him?
Gongaware: I think he wanted to set up the payment

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 8h
"I was told to negotiate his compensation," Gongaware said about Dr. Murray.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 8h
Gongaware repeated he believed when lights went on, MJ was always there. Panish pointed out MJ canceled several shows in Dangerous tour

Gongaware said Dr. Finkelstein is now a drug addiction specialist.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 8h
"There were two occasions where he (Dr. Finkelstein) told me he treated MJ, but never talked about Demerol or injections," Gongaware said.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 8h
Gongaware said he does not remember Dr. Finkelstein telling him MJ had addiction problem with pain medication during the Dangerous tour.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 8h
"I believe he's mistaken," Gongaware said if Dr. Finkelstein gave deposition to the contrary.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 8h
Panish: Did Dr. Finkelstein tell you he put MJ on a 24 hour morphine drip?

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 8h
Under responsibilities of Dr. Murray, it said Dr. Murray was to perform the Services reasonably requested by Producer.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 8h
Panish: Do you know it MJ would've agreed to that?
Gongaware: I don't know

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 8h
Panish inquired if Dr. Murray asking $5 million was a red flag. Gongaware said no, people asked more than their value because it was MJ.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 8h
Panish asked about discrepancies in the time of the calls with Dr. Murray."I testified to what I remembered," Gongaware said.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 8h
Panish: In your opinion, this is a baseless, shakedown lawsuit?
Gongaware: I don't understand the merit in it

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 8h
Panish: You answered interrogatories in this case blaming everything on Mrs. Jackson?
Gongaware: I don't recall

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 8h
Panish: Did you sign anything in this case saying that Mrs. Jackson was trying to extort money from AEG?
Gongaware: I don't recall

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 8h
"I believe they suffered a great loss," Gongaware said about Michael's children losing a father.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 8h

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 8h
"He was always amazing," Gongaware said about MJ.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 8h
Gongaware: I thought he was great
Panish: Despite Bugzee saying MJ was deteriorating in front of his eyes?

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 8h
Gongaware said the demand for tickets for MJ's memorial service was huge, comparable to the demand for TII tour.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 8h
Gongaware said the amount of people still in line to buy tickets for TII could've sold out 100 shows.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 8h
Panish: Do you remember what you said Elvis died of?
Gongaware: Heart ailment

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 8h
But Panish recalled Gongaware giving a different answer earlier on, saying he believed it was prescription drugs

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 8h
Gongaware: Memphis coroner said cause of death was heart condition. But few years later, coroner reopened the case, added prescription drug

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 8h
On 3/18/09 -- asking about MJ going to India for show, Phillips responded: "Thanks, Thomas. MJ will definitely be heading your way.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 8h
Gongaware said he thinks they were making plans in case MJ said ok, let's go.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 8h
EmIl on 3/17/09 from Phillips:
We have a 4 year plan that included Australia, however, we have to finish London first.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 7h
Gongaware, who didn't like Australian's promoter, responded:
"Over my dead body. But let's see what he says before I p**s on his parade."

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 7h
Panish: Did you ever see MJ under the influence of prescription medication on Jun 2009?
Gongaware: When he came back from Dr. Klein's office

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 7h
Panish: Did you investigate?
Gongaware: No, he was coming from his doctor, I didn't think there was a need

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 7h
Email on 3/23/09 from Gongaware to his secretary:
Figure it out so it looks like he's not working so much

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 7h
"I didn't want him to think he was working more than he was," Gongaware testified.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 7h
Panish: your goal was to have as many shows as possible?
Gongaware: I would've liked that

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 7h
Panish: The more shows you had, the more money AEG would've gotten, right?
Gongaware: Yes

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 7h
Marvin Putnam, in re-direct, asked Gongaware if he tried to give his best testimony possible in deposition. Gongaware said yes.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 7h
Gongaware said he saw MJ with slurred speech after seen Dr. Klein, not Dr. Murray.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 7h
As to the card to Mrs. Jackson and children, Gongaware said he's not good with cards, couldn't recall ever sending a condolence card.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 7h
"What I did, I tried to put the memorial show together," Gongaware said. "I think it was the best thing for me to do, commemorate his life."

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 7h
Memorial was at the Staples Center with 15,000 people, live feed to Nokia Theater with 5,000 people.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 7h
Gongaware said he worked directly with Randy Jackson on the memorial. It cost over a million dollars, AEG and MJ's estate bore the cost.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 7h
"I'm glad I did what I did," Gongaware said, adding memorial was shown to millions of people interested in MJ around the world.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 7h
Putnam tried 2 rebut all the claims that Gongaware changed his testimony. Gongaware said he feels he hasn't changed his answers.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 7h
Putnam showed independent contract agreement with Ferrigno fully executed. Julie Hollander signed on behalf of AEG,effective April 27, 2009.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 7h
Putnam questioned Gongaware about Dr. Murray's contract. The exec said MJ had to sign it in order for it to be valid.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 7h
Then it was Brian Panish's turn again. He said there isn't a date on the contract showing when Julie Hollander signed Ferrigno's agreement.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 7h
Panish pointed out that Hollander was signing contracts after MJ had died. He asked to see the original contract.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 7h
Panish: Lou Ferrigno was retained by AEG, right?
Gongaware: Yes

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 7h
Gongaware said he expected his lawyers would act on his best interest and that testified truthfully and factually in his deposition.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 7h
Panish asked if Gongaware expected to be believed now when he wouldn't recall his answers in deposition. Defendant objected, judge sustained

AEG exec accuses Michael Jackson's mom, kids of extortion

Claims of extortion and laughter-inducing testimony stemming from legal advice on e-mails highlighted Tuesday's proceedings in the Michael Jackson wrongful death trial.

Randy Phillips, the chief executive officer of AEG Live, disclosed that his lawyers advised company executives not to review old e-mails before testifying.

That strategy could explain the high number of "I don't recall" answers by Paul Gongaware, the concert promoter's co-CEO, during his deposition and six days of testimony that have just concluded.

Phillips, who followed Gongaware on the witness stand Tuesday afternoon, said he believed Jackson's mother and three children were trying to extort money from his company, which he insisted bears no liability in the pop icon's death in 2009.

The Jacksons' lawsuit accuses the company of negligently hiring, retaining or supervising Dr. Conrad Murray, the physician convicted of involuntary manslaughter in Jackson's drug overdose death.

AEG lawyers contend Jackson chose, paid and controlled Murray, who infused him with the surgical anesthetic propofol almost every night for a month to help the singer rest as he prepared for his comeback "This Is It" concerts.

Jackson lawyer Brian Panish, who has been previously told by the judge not to argue with witnesses, quickly tangled with Phillips.

"Please don't argue with me because then I will argue back and get in trouble," Panish told Phillips at one point.

"Then that's an incentive for me," Phillips joked.

The feisty chemistry between lawyer and witness promises to keep jurors, who often chuckle at Panish's courtroom behavior, on the edge of their seats for the next day or so.

Gongaware's testimony was punctuated with so many "I don't recall" responses that jurors began laughing at one point. He frequently said he couldn't recall sending or reading key e-mails in the case, although his e-mail address was on them.

Panish asked Gongaware whether he thought it would have been better for him if he had reviewed documents and e-mails before testifying.

"I relied on the advice of my attorney," he said.

With his testimony concluded, Gongaware will resume his responsibilities as tour manager for the Rolling Stones.

"All this legal stuff, I don't understand it," he said.

Phillips, a law school dropout, seemed ready to rumble when he entered court after Gongaware. But he acknowledged that until two weeks ago, he had not looked at any of his old e-mails to refresh his memory.

"They felt it would be better if I went in without preparation," he said, referring to his lawyers.

AEG Live lawyer Marvin Putman said outside of court that the volume of documents they would have needed to review was massive, making it impossible for them to prepare.

E-mails that AEG Live executives sent and received in the months before Jackson's death include one in which Phillips assures show director Kenny Ortega that the company has "checked out" Murray and found him to be very successful.

AEG Live executives later acknowledged they did not do a background check on Murray, who a police detective testified was in debt for more than $1 million dollars and faced foreclosure on his home.

"I wrote it in the e-mail that I thought at the time he had been checked out," Phillips testified Tuesday. He wrote that Murray was successful "because that's what I was told," he said.

"In retrospect, it's not 100% true," Phillips said. "There's what I thought at the time versus what I learned afterwards."

Phillips, Gongaware and other AEG Live executives ignored red flags that should have alerted them that Jackson's life was in danger, the Jackson lawsuit contends.

Murray signed and faxed his $150,000-a-month contract back to AEG Live, but with Jackson's death the next day on June 25, 2009, Phillips didn't sign it. AEG lawyers argue that means it was not a fully executed agreement and Murray was never hired by them.

Michael Jackson lawsuit is extortion attempt, AEG Live CEO says

The head of AEG Live told a jury on Monday that he believes a lawsuit filed by Michael Jackson's mother against the concert promotion company was a baseless extortion attempt.

CEO Randy Phillips also said the company bears no responsibility for Jackson's 2009 death, as his mother contends.

Katherine Jackson is suing AEG Live LLC, claiming it failed to properly investigate the doctor who was later convicted of her son's death. AEG denies wrongdoing.

Phillips said he agreed with statements attributed to him and defense attorney Marvin S. Putnam that the case was a shakedown.

"Yes or no, answer? Yes," Phillips said in response to a question by Katherine Jackson's attorney Brian Panish.

Phillips is the highest-ranking AEG executive to testify in the case, now in its sixth week.

He will likely be asked about numerous emails he sent and received about Jackson's health in the final weeks of the superstar's life, as well as any interactions he had with former cardiologist Conrad Murray.

Murray agreed to serve as Jackson's doctor for $150,000 a month while he performed 50 shows titled
"This Is It" in London's 02 Arena in 2009 and early 2010.

AEG denies hiring Murray and agreeing to pay Murray's fee as an advance to Jackson.

Phillips' testimony came after several days of often tense testimony from AEG Live executive Paul Gongaware, who told jurors he did not remember numerous details about Jackson's rehearsals and emails he sent about the singer.

Panish sparred with Gongaware, and pointedly questioned Phillips, whom he called to the stand as a hostile witness.

Panish asked Phillips whether he was eager to tell his side of the story.

"I believe you called me as a witness, so I'm here," Phillips said flatly.

Panish at one point asked the executive whether he was familiar with the music industry.

"Familiar with the music industry? I was working in it," Phillips replied.

When the executive appeared to crack a smile, Panish asked if he thought the proceedings were funny.

"No, I think it's tragic." Phillips replied.

MICHAEL JACKSON
Superfan Anted Up $16K
To Fly Banners Over Trial



Изображение

One of Michael Jackson's biggest fans is SO CONVINCED there's something fishy about his death ... that she dropped $16,800 on her credit cards to have conspiracy-theory banners flown all over the L.A. area ... TMZ has learned.

The message-towing planes mysteriously started buzzing L.A. 2 weeks ago with banners like, "FOLLOW THE $ TO MICHAEL JACKSON'S DEATH" ... and "LAPD -- HONOR BOUND TO TELL TRUTH FOR MJ."

Sources connected to AirSign, the company flying the banners, confirmed to TMZ ... a Hollywood costume shop worker paid for 11 flights over several locations including the downtown L.A. courthouse where Michael's wrongful death lawsuit is going on right now.

Изображение

The woman, who wants to remain anonymous, tells us ... "I'm hoping that someone will look at those messages and say, 'If someone feels that strongly about it, maybe this is worth looking into."

As for the massive cc debt ... she says she can handle it because she's single and kid-free.

And in case you think she's totally nuts ... she does have one connection to MJ. The shop where she works supplied some costumes for "This Is It."

Totally worth it.

Michael Jackson mother accused of 'extortion'
Мать Майкла Джексона обвинили в вымогательстве

Изображение
Katherine Jackson's legal action has been described as a "shakedown" attempt
Действия Кэтрин Джексон названы " попыткой шантажа "

The head of concert promoters AEG Live has admitted in court in Los Angeles he believes a legal action filed by Michael Jackson's mother Katherine is a "baseless extortion" attempt.
Глава AEG Live признал, что иск, поданный матерью Майкла Джексона - " необоснованная попытка шантажа ".

Katherine Jackson claims the concert promoters failed to investigate the doctor who was later convicted of causing her son's death in 2009.

AEG Live are being sued for $40 billion (£26 billion).

Randy Phillips says AEG bear no responsibility for Jackson's death.

'Shakedown'
When asked on Tuesday by Katherine Jackson's lawyer whether he thought the case was a "baseless extortion, a shakedown of AEG Live", Phillips answered: "Yes."

It is likely he will be asked about numerous emails he sent and received about Jackson's health in the final weeks of the singer's life, as well as any interactions he had with his physician Conrad Murray.

AEG Live claims it was not responsible for the hire or supervision of the doctor and has called the legal action "preposterous".

AEG denies hiring Murray and agreeing to pay his fee as an advance to Michael Jackson.

Murray agreed to serve as the pop star's doctor for $150,000 a month while he performed shows at London's 02 Arena in 2009 and early 2010.

He was convicted in 2011 of involuntary manslaughter after supplying Jackson with a surgical anaesthetic.

The civil trial is now in its sixth week.

Phillips said he never told LAPD "Randy stated that Kenny got in Michael's face, at which time Dr. Murray admonished Randy..."

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 11h
"The police made a mistake," Phillips said. "He (detective) misconstrued what was said and made a mistake."

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 11h
Dr. Murray got in to and admonished Kenny Ortega and told him not to be an amateur doctor, Phillips said he told the police.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 11h
"I believe the Los Angeles Police Department is a fine entity as I believe in this judicial system," Phillips explained.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 11h
Phillips pointed another mistake in LAPD's report. It states Phillips/Gongaware produced 2 MJ's tours but Phillips said he wasn't involved

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 11h
As to MJ missing rehearsals, Phillips clarified: "MJ was showing up to rehearsal, just not to enough of them, in Kenny's opinion."

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 11h
Phillips remembers one phone call with Dr. Murray that lasted probably about 25 minutes.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 11h
Phillips told Panish he'd know how many times he called Dr. Murray because the attorney subpoenaed the exec's phone records.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 11h
Panish said he never subpoenaed any phone records, that it was LAPD that did it. Phillips said he made an assumption.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 11h
The only phone call Phillips remembers is the one that Dr. Murray called him on June 20, 2009.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 11h
In his deposition, Phillips said Paul Gongaware never communicated to him about the email that AEG, not MJ, was paying Dr. Murray.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 11h
Phillips said at the deposition it was the first time he ever saw Gongaware's email.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 11h
Panish showed the email that was forwarded to Frank DiLeo and Phillips was cc'd containing the mention that AEG, not MJ, pays Dr. Murray.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 11h
Phillips said he never received the email. Then, after being shown the email at depo, Phillips said he didn't remember receiving it.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 11h
On the stand today, Phillips said he received Gongaware's email. Panish grilled Phillips pointing out he changed his answer three times.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 11h
Phillips said he answered the same thing, but with different qualifications.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 11h
"Frankly, I don't remember reading Paul's email, I was more concerned about Kenny's email," Phillips said.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 11h
At this point, most jurors seemed to be tuned out when Phillips didn't give straight answers.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 11h
Panish showed an email dated 6/17/09 from Phillips to Dr. Tohme:
Kenny Ortega, Gongaware, DiLeo, his doctor named Conrad from Vegas and I

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 11h
Email cont'd: have an intervention with him to get him to focus and come to rehearsals yesterday.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 11h
Email cont'd: Getting him fully engaged is difficult and the most pressing matter as we are only 20 days out from the first show.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 11h
Phillips said it was not an intervention, but a meeting. He said it had nothing to do with drugs.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 11h
Phillips said he had lunch with Dr. Tohme in Beverly Hills within the past month. Panish asked if Phillips discussed Dr. Tohme's testimony.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 11h
Phillips said he didn't, but Marvin Putnam, AEG's attorney, was also present.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 11h
Phillips said they discussed something regarding Dr. Tohme's case against MJ's estate. He said he doesn't remember talking about this case.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 11h
Panish: Isn't it true, sir, that when Dr. Murray was hired no one was acting as MJ's personal manager?

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 11h
Phillips: He had someone in that capacity. My understanding Frank DiLeo was his manager.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 11h
"We never hired Dr. Murray," Phillips said.

Phillips said AEG advanced DiLeo $50,000 at MJ's direction.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 11h
Phillips said he didn't know anything about Dr. Tohme in January 09 other than he was a consultant for Colony Capital and repped MJ.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 11h
Phillips said in MJ's career they always paid his personal manager. Phillips recalls AEG paying artist's manager 1 other time, for Bon Jovi

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 11h
Panish: Did you talk to Sharon Osbourne about the show?
Phillips: No, not to the extent that Sharon is alluding to we did.

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 11h
Phillips said he ran into Sharon at the lobby of their building. She asked how it was going, he said it's tough but we're going to get there

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 11h
Phillips said the encounter with Sharon Osbourne was just a hi and bye. They never talked about ticket sales or anything else related to MJ

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 11h
93% of the "This Is It" tickets sold were refunded, Phillips said. "7-8% people elected to hold the tickets as souvenirs."

ABC7 Court News ‏@ABC7Courts 11h
Out of $75 million in sales, AEG kept more than $5 million, which Phillips said they gave back to MJ's estate.
