Michael Jackson - Lou Ferrigno Contests Reports About Michael Jackson's Deteriorating Health

Michael Jackson's longtime friend and fitness guru Lou Ferrigno has challenged testimony from the opening day of DR. Conrad Murray's manslaughter trial in Los Angeles, which suggested the King of Pop was struggling with poor health in the weeks leading up to his 2009 death.
The former Incredible Hulk star has been watching the court proceedings with interest and he was baffled when another Jackson associate, choreographer Kenny Ortega, took the stand on Tuesday (27Sep11) and told jurors the pop superstar was so sick at rehearsals two weeks before his death that he sent an email to his concert promoters sharing his concerns.
Reading the email he sent to an Aeg Live official, Ortega told the court, "Tonight I was feeding him (Jackson), wrapping him in blankets to warm his chills, massaging his feet to calm him and calling his doctor."
But Ferrigno insists there were no signs that the King of Pop was ill while he was training him.
The bodybuilder-turned-actor tells Tmz.com his superstar client was in good health whenever he arrived at his home to work out with him and his energy levels were good, although the King of Pop did complain about sleeping problems.
Around the same time Ortega reported Jackson's deteriorating health, Ferrigno worked out with him for the last time - and he admits his final chat with the pop star left him with concerns about his friend's state of mind.
Ferrigno recalls, "He said, 'Take care of yourself,' and when his fitness trainer said, 'I'm going to see you next week?' Michael just repeated, 'Take care of yourself.'"
