Michael Jackson ill, not hospitalized in Las Vegas

Michael Jackson is "a little bit under the weather," but has not sought hospital treatment, his spokeswoman said Thursday.

"He is not in the hospital and he has not been in the hospital," Raymone K. Bain said, denying news reports that the singer was hospitalized for pneumonia.

The King of Pop moved to Las Vegas late last year after a year of self-imposed exile following his acquittal in a high-profile child molestation trial that ended in June 2005. He is evaluating his options for a comeback deal.

Bain said she spoke with the performer Thursday afternoon from his home, where he was conducting meetings with business associates.

Bain said a few members of the Jackson entourage had fallen ill after a recent trip abroad.

"I don't know how the doctors have diagnosed it," she said.
