A lot of the theories flying around about Michael Jackson’s death say that he had major stage fright about his upcoming tour.

Many insiders have claimed that the pressure he was under thanks to his upcoming run in London somehow contributed to his demise.

But Michael’s friend and trainer, Incredible Hulk actor Lou Ferrigno, has denied that Jackson was scared about performing.

When he appeared on Good Day LA today, the host asked Lou if Jackson, who Lou had been working with in preparation for the show, had been in good spirits.

"Yes," said Lou. "He had his three kids there. He was a wonderful father. He was happy."

"I mentioned to him, I said, ‘Are you nervous about doing the tour’.

"He said, ‘No, I can’t wait to get onstage.’"

So why does Lou think other have said Jackson was terrified about performing again?

"A lot of people are negative," Lou told the show. "I don’t know what happened in the last month, but when I was with him he was determined. He was genuine guy."
