Cherilyn Lee: Served in Michael Jackson Case

by at . Comments

Michael Jackson's nutritionist, Cherilyn Lee, has been subpoenaed as the police and DEA try to hunt down the singer's medical records, the AP reports.

Los Angeles County Coroner's officials paid a visit to Cherilyn Lee's Inglewood, Calif., office on Wednesday, her spokeswoman, Belinda Foster, confirms.

The news comes hours after the Drug Enforcement Administration and homicide detectives raided the office of Jackson's personal physician, Dr. Conrad Murray.

Authorities entered Murray's Houston office thanks to a search warrant that states the doctor is under suspicion and may be looking at manslaughter charges.

Her spokeswoman says she's cooperating fully with investigators, and a subpoena was only necessary because the records are protected by law.

Cherilyn Lee treated Jackson between January and April.

She has alleged the singer asked for Diprivan, the brand name for Propofol, a powerful anesthetic administered via IV, for help sleeping. The drug is central to the investigation of Jackson's death by cardiac arrest on June 25.

Jackson's longtime dermatologist, Dr. Arnold Klein (the biological father of the singer's eldest children, Prince, 12, and Paris, 11, depending on what you read), was served a subpoena by an L.A. County Coroner official on July 14.
