The LA Times published a story saying that internal AEG emails have revealed that the company was questioning Michael Jackson's stability before they signed him for a 50 show residency.
New e-mails paint a shocking portrait of Michael Jackson just months before his death.
The L-A Times says it has obtained e-mails written by a concerned promoter with AEG, which was financing Jackson's huge "This Is It" comeback tour.
One promoter called Jackson "drunk and despondent" and "an emotionally paralyzed mess riddled with self loathing and doubt."
The emails are expected to play a role in two lawsuits involving AEG.
According to the LA Times, the company says the emails obtained were incomplete and released to portray AEG negatively.
