Frank Dileo, Michael Jackson's manager, appeared on the Today show Friday morning, and said that the late superstar was in amazing spirits leading up to his sudden death.

"I was with Michael everyday, we went to rehearsal," Dielo told host Meredith Vieira of Wednesday, when Jackson prepared for upcoming concert dates at Los Angeles' Staples Center.

"He put his arm around me and said, 'Frank, I've never been happier, were gonna make this work,'" Dileo said.

In terms of suspected drug use in the tragic case, Dileo said he'd never seen Michael take anything--such as reported daily injections of Demerol or any other drug.,

"He seemed in great health," Dileo said,  "he was working out everyday."
