Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

Michael was absolutely sharp as a razor, really focused. It's the best I've known him in a long time. He said he couldn't wait to get back on stage and that his kids were going to see him perform - it was one of the main reasons for him doing the shows. That's why the whole thing is such a shock. I've never seen him taking anything or any evidence that he was on something. I'm an acupuncturist. ... See more »

Trivia:

He was a close, long-time friend of American rock singer and songwriter Michael Jackson, and they were godfathers to each other's children. Lester spent Christmas 2003 at the Neverland Ranch, and vocally defended Jackson throughout his trial on child molestation charges in 2005. See more »
