Troubled, enigmatic music icon Michael Jackson is suffering from skin cancer after being diagnosed with the disease a few weeks ago, according to the Sun (UK).
The megastar attended Cedars-Sinai hospital in Los Angeles to hear the news last month, but is expected to make a full recovery for his London O2 dates in July.
The disease could be linked to Jacko’s skin-pigmentation disease vitiligo, although the government has warned of a link between skin bleaching and cancer.
Which is, of course, not in any way remotely suggesting that Michael Jackson's albino-like complexion is anything other than naturally occurring. At all.
“Michael’s tests showed spots of skin cancer on his body, and cells which could turn to skin cancer on his face. He was at first very concerned, but says he has been assured by the doctors that they can treat this and he will recover,” says a source.
The plastic surgery hall of fame member has had so much work done in the past, it's hard to imagine this is not at all related. But we hope he's okay.
Michael is currently rehearsing for his string of sell-out dates in the UK and his business manager, Dr. Tomhe says he “couldn’t be in better shape.”
He must mean physically, and even that's a stretch. As for reports that the singer has six months to live, Jackson's handlers had no comment.
