Michael Jackson was hospitalized with an undisclosed illness Wednesday, the same day he was scheduled to give a deposition in a copyright lawsuit. Jackson was hospitalized in Indianapolis for observation and treatment after falling ill before the deposition was to begin, Brian Oxman, an attorney for the Jackson family, told The Associated Press. Jackson, 44, “was not feeling well and was feeling weak,” Oxman said in a telephone interview. Neither Oxman nor Jackson spokesman Stuart Backerman knew which hospital Jackson was taken to. “What it comes down to is, Michael does not like depositions,” said Oxman. “He doesn’t like lawsuits. He doesn’t eat and he doesn’t take care of himself because he’s so worried.” Oxman did not know which hospital Jackson was taken to. A source told The Star that Jackson was admitted to Methodist Hospital under an assumed name. A Methodist Hospital spokeswoman told The Star: “We have no patient by that name.” New federal regulations prohibit hospitals from releasing information without the patient’s consent. Oxman said Jackson’s illness has forced the singer to cancel a trip planned for today to Gary, where he grew up.
