London: Michael Jackson`s physician, Conrad Murray, had demanded 20,000 pounds a day as fees to look after the singer in London during his planned comeback tour, a court has heard.

Attorney Kathy Jorrie told an LA court that Murray also asked for a "back-up" medic to allow him to go sightseeing in London, and a CPR machine because he feared "anything could go wrong" during the 50 gigs at the O2 Arena, it was alleged.

According to Jorrie, Murray had eventually agreed a 100,000-pound a-month pay deal but the King of Pop died before the tour.

Jackson`s mum and kids have filed a wrongful death case against music promoters AEG .

Murray is currently serving a four-year jail term for the singer`s involuntary manslaughter.
