Witness: Everyone Lied After Jackson Died...
|May 13, 2013 Michael Jackson, T. I, Kenny Ortega|
Michael's make up artist testifies in the negligence trial that she was asked to try to cover Jackson's frailty.
If you saw Jackson in the last documentary This Is It, you might have thought he looked okay. His make-up artist was asked to retouch the video to make Michael look healthier than he was.
But she refused.
...It was a lie, she said. I didn't want to lie... ...Everybody was lying after he died... saying that Michael was well, and everybody knew he wasn't. I felt that retouching Michael was just a part of that lie.
Before Faye testified, jurors heard a similarly disturbing description of Jackson in his final days from "This Is It" associate producer Alif Sankey.
Jackson was not speaking normally at the June 19 costume fitting, Sankey said. She and producer Kenny Ortega cried after he left because of his appearance and what he said.
God keeps talking to me," Jackson told Ortega, Sankey testified.
Faye said Jackson seemed frightened, and he was talking to himself, repeating the same thing over and over again.
He kept repeating, Why can't I choose? she said.
Jackson was shivering from chills, and it was "like I was touching ice" when she put on his makeup, Faye testified.
Michael Jackson's mother and three children contend concert promoter AEG Live is liable in Jackson's death because its executives ignored his health problem and pressured him to prepare for his "This Is It" shows set to debut in London in July 2009.
