Michael Jackson had been having what appear to be cardiac problems for several weeks before he died, a friend of the singer has told exclusively.

“I last saw Michael on June 16 and he told me then he wasn’t well,” the source said. “He told me, ‘I haven’t been feeling well lately.  I am having problems with my chest’.  He touched his chest as he said it, indicating to me he was having heart trouble.  It was also visibly obvious that he was having trouble breathing.

“He was so very, very slim that last day I saw him,” the friend added.  “And his hands were extremely dry and scaly.  It was like he had severe psoriasis.

“I loved Michael but I was sadly not surprised by the news of his passing.”

Jackson died on June 25.  His personal physician, who had moved into his rented Los Angeles home, is Dr. Conrad Robert Murray, is a cardiologist.
