Doctor's Lawyer:'Aeg Owe Jackson's Medic Money'

The lawyer representing MICHAEL JACKSON's doctor has made it clear his client still expects to be paid by concert promoter AEG for agreeing to become the pop star's personal medic throughout his London comeback shows.
Dr. Conrad Murray was hired by Jackson to give him one-to-one attention on his 50-date residency at London's 02 Arena, which was supposed to kick-off next month (Jul09).
Murray was with Jackson when he died on Thursday (25Jun09) and attempted to resuscitate him.
The doctor has faced a string og allegations he had prescribed the Thriller singer a deadly cocktail of prescription pills, including drug injections, which his lawyer, Edward Chernoff, has vehemently denied.
And Chernoff has added that even though the This Is It tour will no longer take place, he expects his client to receive the full wage for his work up to date - $300,000 (£200,000) - insisting AEG are two months behind with payments.
However, AEG boss Randy Phillips is adamant the deal was only valid with Jackson's signature, and the star didn't sign the contract before he passed away.
Phillips adds that although his company had agreed to pay Murray $150,000 (£100,000)-a-month, he insists the cash was only advanced through AEG from Jackson's own money.
The concert promoter CEO claims Murray may now have to chase his payments through the singer's estate.
