Lloyd's of London, the insurer of Michael Jackson's planned series of comeback concerts at London's O2 Arena, are suing AEG Live with the claim that the promoter has failed to provide necessary information about the singer's medical history and details about Dr. Conrad Murray, the physician charged with involuntary manslaughter in the pop star's death. The insurer has asked a judge to nullify a policy that protected AEG Live if Jackson was unable to complete the shows, which were scheduled to begin shortly after his death in June of 2009.

Lloyd's lawsuit also claims that a required medical exam of Jackson was never conducted and that they should not have to pay out for the series of canceled shows in London. The enormous cost of canceling the series of concerts has been a major burden on the Jackson estate, who have also pursued a lawsuit against AEG Live.
