    Will Michael Jackson ever be able to rest in peace? It seems unlikely. The singer's three children and his mother Katherine are suing concert promoter AEG Live for allegedly strong-arming the singer into a grueling rehearsal schedule that led to his death.

    Jacko was rehearsing for his comeback concert tour in June 2009 and at the final rehearsal, he was said to be shivering and disoriented while at the Staples Center before he died.

    "AEG had legal duties to Michael Jackson to treat him safely and to not put him in harm's way," stated the lawsuit. "But AEG, despite its knowledge of Michael Jackson's physical condition, breached those duties by putting its desire for massive profits from the tour over the health and safety of Michael Jackson."

    The lawsuit also alleged that "due AEG's actions and inactions, three loving children lost their father, a loving mother and father lost their son, the Jackson siblings lost their brother, and the world lost its most celebrated entertainer."

    What do you think of the suit brought against AEG by Jackson's kids and mother?
