Tom Mesereau, Michael Jackson's lawyer, has given an interview to the BBC; in which he said that Jackson had to go to hospital, after the trial, to be treated for weight loss and dehydration.
"Michael Jackson was ill from time to time. In fact, people didn't realize he actually entered the hospital after the verdict..He was dehydrated, he had lost a tremendous amount of weight, he was having trouble keeping food down, he was terrified about what was going happen to his children and he had a recurring back problem,".
Mesereau said that Jackson would not settle out of court if further allegations were made against him.
"I am concerned because he is a perpetual target. There still is a perception among some people that he ... doesn't want to go to court and will settle,...We will be fighting any of these suits all the way if they happen."
Mesereau said that he hoped that nobody in the future would live in Jackson's home to spend the night to avoid future false claims.
"I advised Mr Jackson not to let any families in his home again,".
