New book claims that Michael Jackson gravely ill

December 22, 2008

Many believe that Michael Jackson might be mentally unbalanced after his abusive childhood but a new report says he may be also gravely ill. Jackson who often wears breathing masks has also recently been photographed in a wheelchair. A few weeks ago, he was spotted receiving help walking, while wearing a Zorro style mask but many just shrug this off due to his reputation for bizarre behavior.

But according to the author of a new biography of the singer Jackson is in desperate need of an emergency transplant operation to save his life from a rare lung condition. Celebrity scandal author and Scientology-infiltrator Ian Halperin’s new book, claims that the pop icon, 50, suffers from Alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency, a potentially fatal genetic illness, as well as emphysema and gastrointestinal bleeding.

“He’s had it for years, but it’s gotten worse,” Halperin told In Touch magazine. “He needs a lung transplant but may be too weak to go through with it … [But] it’s the [gastrointestinal] bleeding that is the most problematic part. It could kill him.”

Halperin also claims that Jackson can barely speak and is 95-percent blind in his left eye.  The “Thriller” and “Bad” singer has been rumored frantically borrowing money to avoid going broke. Not sure how much of this new story to believe but it’s one more reason to worry that Michael is not heading toward a happy ending.

    Could it be that the author is slightly stretching the truth and making the rounds to promote his new book?

    In any case, if it is true then it’s a sad situation for the pop god. Michael Jackson is (or was, depending on his current condition) one of the most talented performers and recording artists in recent times.
