Paul Gongaware, who was in charge of producing and promoting
Jackson's ill-fated comeback concerts, testified this week that he
couldn't remember sending key e-mails or approving budgets that
included $150,000 a month for Dr. Conrad Murray.
Gongaware also denied thinking that Jackson's health was frail in the
last days of his life, despite e-mails from others in the production
suggesting the singer needed help.
"I still don't recall writing it," Gongaware said,
"I don't recall writing it, but I admit I wrote it.""
In May, Gongaware sent an email to Tim Leiweke's secretary,
Carla Garcia, asking her to pray for him, since everything was
a nightmare.
Email on 5/5/09 from Gongaware to Carla Garcia:
Pray for me. This is a nightmare.
Email on 6/20/09 from Gongaware to Phillips:
Take the doctor with you. Why wasn't he there last night?
Panish: Why are you telling the CEO to take the doctor with you?
Gongaware: Meeting was going to be with Michael
Email on 6/19/09 from John Hougdahl to Gongaware and Phillips
Subject: Trouble at the front
Email: Paul/Randy I'm not being a drama queen here...
Kenny asked me to notify you both. MJ was sent home
without stepping foot on stage.
Email cont'd: The company is rehearsing right now,
but the DOUBT is pervasive. Time to circle the wagons.
Response from Gongaware to Phillips:
Not sure what to send back...
Randy responded: "We need to pull the plug now.
I will explain."
Who wants to work with a company whose executives don't know
their own contracts or care to respect the Artist they work with or represent!
All Gongaware could say today is "i don't recall" Is that what an artist
wants to hear from one of the biggest promoters in the world!!
Can you blame MJ for not wanting this!!!
Someone had to step up and say enough!
It's over! I'm done!!

In Fear for his life Michael Jackson made a haunting remark
about his mortality after watching some stage pyrotechnics
for his show "This Is It" tour less than a week before his
apparent death June 25, 2009: .

"You aren't going to kill the artist, are you?"

Stay tuned:

  1. hearing all the references to *the artist* yesterday, along with all the rest of court testimony, really gave me the feeling that Michael was almost thought of as an object rather than a beloved performer and a person with feelings. Kenny's email of concern was heartbreaking- the statement about 4 bodyguards standing by MJ's door but never offered even a cup of hot tea when he was obviously chilled/sick just saddens me to no end.
