(AP) A choreographer who worked one-on-one with Michael Jackson says the entertainer appeared "a little loopy" after visits with his longtime dermatologist in the weeks before his death.


Travis Payne is testifying for AEG Live LLC in a case filed by Jackson's mother over her son's June 2009 death.


Payne told a Los Angeles jury Tuesday that he didn't think Jackson had a problem with prescription drugs but was having cosmetic procedures done to help him feel comfortable returning to the stage for his planned "This Is It" concerts.


Payne testified that he saw Jackson appear "loopy" two to four times over the course of his sessions with the singer. He says the incidents always followed visits with Dr. Arnold Klein, who is not a party to the case.
