Michael Jackson - Michael Jackson's stage manager concerned before death

Michael Jackson's 'This Is It' stage manager expressed grave concern for the singer before his death.

According to new evidence submitted by the late King of Pop's mother Katherine Jackson in his wrongful death lawsuit against concert promoter, AEG Live, on Thursday (23.05.13), John Hougdahl warned promoters that the singer's health was rapidly deteriorating and he advised them to hire a psychiatrist and a personal trainer to help him, according to gossip website RadarOnline.com.

In the email, which was sent to AEG executive Randy Philips, on June 19, 2009, John wrote: ''I have watched him deteriorate in front of my eyes over the last eight weeks.

''My laymen's degree tells me he needs a shrink to get mentally prepared to get on stage and then a trainer to get him in physical shape. He used to do multiple 360 spins back in April. He'd fall on his ass if he tried now.''

The Jackson family matriarch claims that the promoters, who were responsible for the 50-date London residency he was preparing for at the time of his death, were negligent in hiring Dr. Murray, the disgraced physician responsible for administering the lethal dose of Propofol which killed the superstar, to supervise the 'Thriller' singer's medical care.

The court case will continue in Los Angeles on Tuesday (28.05.13).

on this picture Michael looked horrible. He really had too many plastic surgiers, his face wasn't natural at all. Love Michael and his wonderful music but sometimes he should have listened some pp when he was alive.
