  • LOS ANGELES (AP) — An associate choreographer who worked on Michael Jackson‘s planned comeback concerts testified Monday that she didn’t see any signs that the pop superstar was ill or might die in the final days of his life.

    “I just never in a million years thought he would leave us, or pass away,” Stacy Walker told jurors hearing a lawsuit filed by Jackson’s mother against concert promoter AEG Live LLC. “It just never crossed my mind.”

    Walker, who is testifying for AEG, said Jackson appeared thinner than he had been in previous years and wore multiple layers of clothes while rehearing for his “This Is It” shows planned for London’s O2 arena. She said despite Jackson missing multiple rehearsals, she was convinced based on his performances the last two days of his life that he was ready for the series of shows.

    Previous witnesses have testified that Jackson was shivering, had to be fed by others and appeared unprepared.

    Walker said she never saw any of that behavior, although she acknowledged that her job was to work with other dancers and not Jackson directly.

    “I wasn’t looking for things at the time,” she said. “I wish I was.”

    She said she attributed Jackson’s multi-layered wardrobe to a personal preference. She said she recalled one incident in which Jackson may have appeared groggy or drugged, but she said she couldn’t remember whether she witnessed or heard about it from others on the show.
