Lou Ferrigno

Michael Seemed Fine to Me

9/28/2011 6:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lou Ferrigno
-- Michael Jackson's friend and fitness guru for decades -- tells TMZ MJ showed no signs of physical distress during workouts, as recently as 2 weeks before the singer died.

Lou's account differs from some of the statements in court -- that Michael was deteriorating in the weeks before his death.  

Lou says two weeks before Jackson died, he went to MJ's home and trained him for an hour.  Michael did cardio on the treadmill, used the exercise ball, worked with some light weights, completed a bunch of core exercises, and did a lot of stretching. 

Lou says Michael's energy level was very good, but he did complain that he was upset because he was having trouble sleeping.

Lou says he had been training Michael 2 to 3 times a week for the tour ... and aside from seeming "very stressed out," he appeared in good health.

And this is eerie ... Lou says as he left Michael's house the last time -- two weeks before MJ's death -- Jackson said, "Take care of yourself."  Lou said, "I'm going to see you next week."  Michael just repeated, "Take care of yourself."  Lou feels Michael knew something bad was about to happen.

Sorry, but it's a fact, the dude had a plastic nose, it has been do***ented. If you look at the just released hospital pics, you see they put his WIG on him, but he was emaciated and BALDING and GRAY under there. Read some of the medical reports, the nose caved IN from so many operations. You gonna deny he had all the feature-altering operations, that is YOUR problem. Dude had about 1/3 of a nose at the bridge, nostrals wide OPEN. Anyone who believes the image and doesn't see the reality is gonna stick up for this creep, but he was wearing a symthetic nose, that is FACT.

What up all you emotionally illiterate, Nancy Disgrace following, irrational, rode wet, mental midgets? FYI, MJ was a drug addicted pedophile who suffered from an identity crisis and took it upon himself to OD!
On the other hand, Dr. Murray is a good man who did the world a favor. Just imagine if any other average Joe had little boys over to his house for sleep overs in his bed and at the entrance of the room there were cameras to alert this average Joe of intruders. Yeah, average Joe would be in prison after getting thoroughly trashed by Nancy Disgrace and her followers.
A grown man has a secret compartment in his room along with security cameras outside his room to alert him of intruders. You have to be one emotional douchebag or douchebagette to think his sleep overs were "innocent"!!
Thank s Again for carrying out justice Dr. Murray, hang in there because you’ll be found NOT GUILTY,, NOT GUILTY, NOT GUILTY!

Robbin: about an hour ago

A lot can happen in two weeks with a drug addict. And if he trained him 2-3 times a week, why was it TWO WEEKS since he'd been there? Perhaps Michael didn't need him because he was too busy gettin' high.

Randy Morrison: about an hour ago

TRUST ME, on SPEED you can do anything...why are you MJ fans so CLUELESS??? He used dope to get energy and dope to sleep. The "man" even once admitted he was a dope addict, yet you close your eyes and think he did what he did on NATURAL energy...well, NOT since the EARLY Motown days is THAT true.

I bought and LOVED his MUSIC, but as a human being...he was a loser.

You people are TOTALLY IGNORANT! The coroner's report states that there was NO TRACE OF DRUG ADDICTION! READ IT!

If you really want to know what Dr. Murray was doing on MJ's last day, you have to watch this revealing video:

The reason he said that is because he already knew he was in trouble for creating the song titled "They Don't Care About Us" which is directed to some Secret Society within our own corrupted government. Murray was probably framed, forced or hired to murder MJ. Michael Jackson "knew" too much, therefore "someone" had to get rid of him since he could influence a big proportion of our society against this "secret society".

MJ Paid this wacko doctor over $150,000 a month -who has to pay his many girlfriends and illegitimate children 0-I know of one kid he has in Philly. NO self respected doctor would give Propofol to a patient he cared about with NO supervision! Michael gambled with his life and he paid the price and than some. This Doctor will be guilty of medical abandonment he will get 3yrs and get out in 1. PS: He was not the only doctors who prescribe MJ drugs..

Thanks Again, Phantom. The Yokohoma Bad concert showed how tirelessly Michael worked and how he gave it his all. "Lovely One" is a lovely song, so much energy. The donation to the Brotman Medical Center Burn Unit for a special Fund demonstrated his selflessness and love for others. Thanks.
