Days before Michael Jackson’s death, his frantic manager implored the singer’s doctor to perform blood tests on the King of Pop, according to a chilling voice message played in court Thursday.
“I’m sure you’re aware he had an episode last night,” manager Frank Dileo said in a message to Dr. Conrad Murray, the cardiologist convicted of involuntary manslaugher in Jackson’s death.

“He’s sick... We gotta see what he’s doing.”
The revelation came during the fourth day of testimony in the civil case filed by the Gloved One’s family against concert promoter AEG Live.
Manager Frank DiLeo was worried about Michael Jackson.
The lawsuit claims AEG should be held accountable for hiring Murray without a background check and negligently supervising him.
Lawer Brian Panish suggested Thursday that if Dileo was aware of Jackson’s condition, so were AEG executives.
AEG denies any wrongdoing, saying Michael Jackson personally hired Murray and kept his Propofol use a closely guarded secret.
