Michael Jackson’s mom wants handwritten notes allowed in court

Katherine Jackson's lawyers want the fragmented, scrawled messages admitted under the hearsay exception for statements of future plans, intent or motive. But AEG Life lawyers say the documents could just be notations taken during or after a business conversation as a record of something someone else said.

Michael Jackson, rehearsing June 23, 2009, in Los Angeles for his planned shows in London. Jackson died two days later.

A random collection of loose, handwritten notes penned by Michael Jackson and found in the mansion where he died have surfaced in a court filing and may give a window into the King Pop's psyche before he died.

"Weekly income 20 million a week. First multi billionaire entertainer, actor, director, 100 billion," reads one that might depict his personal aspirations.

"Better than Kelly & Astair," he wrote, likely referring to film legends Gene Kelly and Fred Astaire. "The greatest ever, in the likes of Chaplin, Michelangelo, Disney. These men demanded perfection, innovation always."

Another mentions Jackson's "last tour" and says ominously, "if I don't concentrate [on] film No Immortalization."

Man on film: Michael Jackson pens his thoughts on movies, writing, 'If I don't concentrate [on] film no immortalization.'

The fragmented, scrawled notes bear no dates, are riddled with misspellings, and give few clues as to whether the "Thriller" singer was brainstorming lists, writing reminders or simply recording things said by others.

Other compelling notes mention Dr. Conrad Murray, the physician now serving four years for recklessly giving Jackson nightly infusions of a surgery-strength anesthetic as a sleep aid and ultimately causing the superstar's fatal overdose.

"Conrad on plane. Drip Rim sleep," one note reads.

"Conrad MUST practice now. I can't be tired after procedure to important Rim sleep, for plane also with bed. Hire Conrad exclusive, " reads another.

Jackson died from a dose of propofol given in his bedroom on June 25, 2009.

His mom, Katherine Jackson, is now suing concert promoter AEG Live for negligently hiring and supervising Murray.

Was Michael Jackson spelling out his future plans in this handwritten note? AEG Live's lawyers say there's no way to know for sure.

AEG has denied any wrongdoing, arguing that Michael hired Murray with money advanced by AEG and kept his propofol use a fiercely guarded secret.

Other notes mention an "MJ musical," "MJ Soda Can London Deal," "MJ Cookies Deal" and a "Nike deal" without further explanation.

Katherine's lawyers want to show and discuss the notes in closing statements to jurors.

AEG lawyers filed a motion this week saying they're "textbook hearsay" since there's no way to authenticate their meaning now that Michael is dead.

In yet another handwritten note, Michael Jackson mentions Cirque du Soleil — though he misspells it — as well as various money matters.

"There is simply no evidence showing when Michael Jackson wrote the notes, why he did so or what they mean," AEG lawyer Sabrina Strong wrote.

Michael's nephew Taj Jackson previously testified that he received the notes in a box handed to him by someone at Michael's rented mansion after the singer died.

Taj testified that he didn’t know how the box was filled and whether the individual documents originated in the rented estate or came from a prior storage facility, family records or another location altogether.

Katherine's lawyers want them admitted under the hearsay exception for statements of future plans, intent or motive.

Strong argued in the motion that the documents could represent notes taken during or after a business conversation as a record of something someone else said.

She also said they're irrelevant to the wrongful death suit.

"These notes and others seem to reflect unattainable hopes and dreams like world peace or becoming the richest man in the world," she wrote.
