LOS ANGELES (AP) — A makeup artist who worked with Michael Jackson for nearly 30 years says the singer struggled with sleep and required a doctor’s care to deal with pain while touring.
Karen Faye is testifying for Jackson’s mother in a lawsuit against AEG Live LLC, the promoter of his planned series of comeback concerts.
She says Jackson trusted the advice of doctors to help him sleep and deal with pain from injuries and performances.
Faye says during the “Dangerous” tour, promoters asked that she give Jackson injections of pain medications, but she refused. She says a tour manager who later became a top AEG executive then enlisted a doctor to treat Jackson.
Jackson’s mother is suing AEG claiming it didn’t properly investigate the doctor convicted of causing Jackson’s death. AEG denies wrongdoing.
