Michael Jackson: Stylist warned Jackson manager singer might die

AEG denies it hired doctor

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Michael Jackson's longtime stylist says she tried to warn the singer's manager that concert promoter AEG Live LLC would look responsible if the singer died because of numerous signs his health was declining.

Hair and makeup artist Karen Faye showed jurors in a negligent hiring case against AEG that she sent two emails to Jackson's manager five days prior to the singer's death that his health was worsening.

Faye said Friday that she sent the message because she was concerned Jackson could die.

She is testifying in a negligent hiring lawsuit filed by Jackson's mother against AEG Live and claims company executives ignored warning signs about her son's health.

AEG denies it hired the doctor convicted of giving Jackson an overdose of the anesthetic propofol in June 2009.
