Actor Corey Feldman has expressed concern about his own childhood friendship with troubled pop superstar Michael Jackson.

Feldman, who has been supportive of Jackson until recently, says in an upcoming interview with American TV show 20/20, that he's come to a "sickening realisation" about his friendship with the 46-year-old BAD singer.

The former child star, now 33, says, "I started looking at each piece of information, and with that came this sickening realisation that there may have been many occurrences in my life and in my relationship to Michael that have created a question of doubt."

The interview was conducted by British journalist Martin Bashir, whose television documentary on Jackson helped give rise to the current abuse case against the star.

Feldman says Jackson's sex-abuse trial, in which the singer is charged with molesting a 13-year-old boy, led him to reexamine his past relationship with Jackson.
