It seems like it's one legal battle after the next for the Jacksons — this time the King of Pop's mother is challenging Michael Jackson's former concert promoter for allegedly ignoring events that may have lead to the iconic star's death.

Ms.Jackson recently filed documents challenging AEG's motion to dismiss a wrongful death lawsuit against the company. She reportedly plans to sue the company for fraud and negligence, alleging that AEG put Michael Jackson's life at risk by paying his doctor an "exorbitant salary of $150,000" each month to "get Jackson to attend rehearsals and perform."

She also added that the company should have known Dr. Conrad Murray's medical treatments were unsafe when he requested CPR equipment for Jackson's home.

"This is hardly the type of risk expected in an ordinary house visit from a family doctor" her lawyer said. "AEG should have known that the course of treatment being administered by Dr. Murray was unorthodox and unsafe."
