Michael Jackson's AEG Live lawsuit may be intensifying, as new 'smoking gun emails' have allegedly been revealed, meaning that there might be new evidence to back up mother Katherine Jackson and other family members' claims against the concert promoter.
According to CNN, the email which reportedly connects AEG to Michael's death was revealed this week as a judge unsealed documents in the wrongful death lawsuit filed by the Prince of Pop's mother and children.
Jackson died two weeks before his "This Is It" comeback concerts, organized by AEG Live, were scheduled to debut in London in the summer of 2009. E-mails have since been said to be released, suggesting that the promoter was worried about Jackson's missed rehearsals and they sought Dr. Conrad Murray's help in getting him ready.
Prince, Paris and Blanket Jackson and their grandmother, Katherine Jackson, contend that AEG Live's pressure on Murray to have Michael Jackson ready for daily rehearsals despite his fragile health led to his death from an overdose of surgical anesthetic.
The judge ruled last week that Jackson lawyers have shown enough evidence that AEG Live hired and supervised Murray to warrant a jury trial.

She also ruled there was evidence to support the Jacksons' claim that AEG Live executives could have foreseen that Murray would use dangerous drugs in treating the pop icon.
"Now that the court has ruled that there is evidence that it was foreseeable that AEG's actions resulted in Michael Jackson's death, the Jackson family feels vindicated from the public smear campaign that AEG has waged against them," Jackson's lawyer Kevin Boyle allegedly said yesterday, according to the news site.
"The truth about what happened to Michael, which AEG has tried to keep hidden from the public since the day Michael died, is finally emerging. We look forward to the trial where the rest of the story will come to light."
Katherine will now go to trial on 2 April over allegations AEG Live heads negligently hired and supervised Murray.'So Unprofessional': Justin Bieber Booed By Furious Fans After Starting O2 Arena Concert Two Hours L
