Lloyd’s of London is suing the Michael Jackson Company and AEG over an insurance policy that was taken out for Michael Jackson‘s performances in London, which never happened due to the superstar’s sudden death.

LLoyd’s accuses AEG, the concert promoter, of withholding witness statements, and “other information necessary to determine AEG’s entitlement to coverage under the policy,” according to the lawsuit.

The insurance policy that was taken out on behalf of the former King of Pop for $17.5 million dollars, which Lloyd’s doesn’t think it should have to pay because it was never revealed to them that Jackson was taking prescription drugs and Propofol.

Lloyd’s contends it shouldn’t have to pay the insurance policy because: “AEG and/or Jackson, knew but did not disclose that Jackson was taking prescription drugs and/or drugs prior to and at the time of his death, including Propofol,” the court docs state.

The insurance company asserts that they have the right to rescind the policy because of Jackson’s alleged drug use.

Lloyds wants the judge to issue an order declaring the insurance policy canceled and that AEG and the Michael Jackson Company are only entitled to a refund of the premium of the policy.
