Under questioning from Chernoff, Muhammad revealed that Jackson had asked Williams to contact a nurse four days before his death because he was experiencing “weird symptoms.”

“One of his hands was hot and his feet were cold,” Muhammad said. He told Chernoff that he did not reveal that he had contacted the nurse, Cherilyn Lee, during interviews with police. He said he wasn’t asked about it and didn’t think it was relevant.

Chernoff has been questioning witnesses about Jackson’s interactions with other physicians, including dermatologist Arnold Klein. Muhammad said at times, Jackson visited Klein’s office almost daily. A judge has blocked Klein from testifying in the case.
