LOS ANGELES, California (CNN) -- Corey Feldman, befriended by Michael Jackson when he was a rising child actor, has been subpoenaed to testify during the pop star's child molestation trial, Feldman's manager said Friday.

Feldman was subpoenaed by the Santa Barbara County district attorney's office "sometime last week," Scott Carlson said.

The district attorney's office had no immediate comment due to a judge-imposed gag order.

Feldman, 33, who recently spoke with ABC's "20/20," was not on the prosecution's original witness list, a source familiar with the investigation said.

In the "20/20" interview, which airs Friday night, Feldman said he began rethinking his relationship with Jackson because of the case.

"I started looking at each piece of information, and with that came this sickening realization that there have been many occurrences in my life and in my relationship to Michael that have created a question of doubt," Feldman said, according to excerpts.

Feldman, who was a young teenager when he became friends with Jackson, said the pop star never molested him or touched him inappropriately.

But he said Jackson did do some things that he now feels were inappropriate.

"If you consider it inappropriate for a man to look at a book of naked pictures with a child that's 13 or 14 years old -- then your answer would be 'yes,' " Feldman told ABC.

Jackson, 46, faces multiple counts of child molestation for allegedly molesting a cancer-stricken boy whom he befriended.

Jackson has pleaded not guilty to all charges, and the case is currently in the jury selection process. Testimony is expected to begin in March.
