A doctor tied to Michael Jackson, Dr. Allan Metzger, was reprimanded by a Medical Board in September 2000 for "fraudulent medical practice based on prescriptions written for an international entertainer, using a false/fictitious name."
Dr. Metzger confirmed to TMZ that this entertainer is Janet Jackson.
The doctor has also treated Michael Jackson, gone on tour with the star on his HIStory tour in the 1990s and videotaped his wedding to Debbie Rowe.
He is a lupus specialist - Michael Jackson reportedly had the disease.
In the late 90s, Metzger wrote prescriptions for Janet Jackson using the name of her chef, Ricardo Macchi, he admits, saying the prescriptions were for diuretics.
Macchi sued Dr. Metzger over the matter but the suit was dropped.
He also wrote a prescription for a hepatitis B injection - he says he wrote it because Janet was going on tour and wanted to guard against the disease.
"I had done this for Janet for her anonymity," he said.

As for Michael Jackson, Metzger claimed, "I have not treated Michael Jackson for many years." He says he has talked to Jackson on the phone over the years, even giving him medical advice. As for whether he prescribed meds for Jackson?
"I am not at liberty to discuss Michael's medical care," he said.
Doctors associated with Jackson are coming under intense scrutiny due to the singer's death June 25 from what is looking more and more like a drug overdose.
