LOS ANGELES (AP) — Concert giant AEG Live is seeking book drafts and manuscripts by Jermaine Jackson that it claims may reveal details about his superstar brother that will help its defense in a lawsuit filed by the singers’ mother.

AEG is seeking drafts and manuscripts of Jackson’s recent book, “You Are Not Alone,” as well as an unpublished memoir it claims may focus on Michael Jackson’s alleged drug abuse.

Court filings state Jermaine Jackson’s attorneys are fighting the request, calling them overly broad and in violation of First Amendment and privacy protections.

A judge has set a hearing on AEG’s requests for Nov. 28.

Jackson’s mother is suing AEG, claiming the company failed to properly supervise the physician convicted of causing the superstar’s death.
