LOS ANGELES (AP) - Promoters of Michael Jackson's planned 2009 comeback described in emails how they feared for the megastar's stability, saying he was out of shape and consumed with self-doubt.
The Los Angeles Times obtained some 250 pages of messages, most between executives at Anschutz Entertainment Group, which was financing the "This Is It" concerts.
In one exchange AEG's Randy Phillips said Jackson was "an emotionally paralyzed mess."
