Michael Jackson’s mother Katherine insists that she does not regret suing AEG Live executives over her son’s untimely death four years ago.
Last week, a 12-person jury concluded that although AEG bosses hired Dr. Conrad Murray as Jackson’s personal physician ahead of his ill-fated This Is It gigs, they were not guilty of the superstar’s death as the doctor was not “unfit or incompetent to perform the work for which he was hired”.
Although the ruling means AEG Live chiefs do not face a compensation bill, Katherine Jackson insists she stands by her decision in filing the wrongful death lawsuit against the concert promoters, according to editors at TMZ.com.
A source tells the website, “Any reports that Katherine Jackson is feeling remorse for filing the wrongful death lawsuit are completely untrue. Mrs. Jackson feels the lawsuit is very important, and that so far it has proven that AEG did in fact hire Dr. Murray.”
Jackson’s mother is reportedly planning to meet with the jurors in the case before deciding whether to appeal against the verdict.
The Thriller hitmaker died in June, 2009 from an accidental overdose of anaesthetic.
