Emmanuel Lewis “Devastated” by Michael Jackson’s Death

Former Webster star Emmanuel Lewis, who befriended singer Michael Jackson in the 1980s, has been profoundly impacted by the singer’s death on Thursday afternoon.

Attempts by Celebuzz to reach Lewis through his agent, Mike Esterman, have been relayed to Emmanuel. When we contacted Esterman today for follow-up, he noted that he had received a text message from Emmanuel stating that Jackson’s death is “very personal and very emotional”  to him and he is “sincerely devastated at this time.”


Jackson passed away on Thursday afternoon after suffering cardiac arrest at  his home in Los Angeles. An autopsy is currently being conducted.
