Michael Jackson was paranoid that he wouldn’t be able to perform all 50 of his scheduled London concert dates in 2009, telling a hairstylist that he was afraid he’d be working at McDonalds in order to pay back AEG, the promoters of the concerts.
Karen Faye, Jackson’s hairstylist for 25 years, was interviewed by police after the superstar’s death. TMZ was able to find out what Faye told them.
“He was scared to death because AEG was funding everything,” Faye told the police. “He said he would have to work at McDonalds if he didn’t do these shows.”
Faye also said that she believed that the King of Pop was self-sabotaging and that she believed he needed psychological help because of his extreme weight loss and that he appeared to be “under the influence of something.”
Most telling is a conversation Faye said she had with Jackson’s manager days before Jackson died. Jackson appeared to be more alert than normal. When she asked Jackson’s manager why he had taken a turn for the better, his manager said that “Klein’s out of town,” referring to Jackson’s dermatologist, Arnold Klein.
