The first, he said, occurred the day before a Grammy ceremony, when Jackson tried to rehearse instead of rest. The singer sprained his ankle, Fournier said, and "had to be carried on stage" the next day.

The second time, Fournier said he reminded Jackson to "resume a normal diet slowly" -- telling him to go home and eat something like crackers or soup. After Fournier left the operating room, he said, "I happened to drive by a Kentucky Fried Chicken and there was Michael's limo."

Fournier said he went to the car and tapped on the glass. The window came down and there was Jackson, he said, sitting in the back with a bucket of chicken.

"He was embarrassed," Fournier said. "The window rolled up."
