The autopsy on Michael Jackson's body revealed him to be in terrible shape, with only pills in his stomach when he died, according to a report out of the UK.

These findings seem to substantiate allegations made by former Jackson nanny Grace Rwaramba, however, neither story has been independently confirmed.

The Sun, which claims to have obtained the autopsy results, claims:

  • Michael Jackson's hips, thighs and shoulders were riddled with needle wounds.
  • There is unexplained bruising on Jackson's knees and on the front of his shins.
  • That he weighed just 112 pounds, a shockingly low number for a 5'10" man.
  • His body was covered by a plethora of surgery scars were thought to be the result of at least 13 plastic surgery operations.
  • The star was bald at the time of his death and suffered several broken ribs, probably from the failed attempts to revive him.
  • There were four "injection sites" near his heart, where rescue workers reportedly shot adrenaline into his heart to restart it.

The graphic below outlines what the newspaper claims it learned from the autopsy results, which did not officially determine Jackson's cause of death:

Whether or not these claims are substantiated remains to be seen, so take it all with a grain of salt. In related news, the lawyer for Jackson's personal doctor, Conrad Murray, claims now that when Murray found Jackson, he had a faint pulse.

Murray's lawyer, Edward Chernoff, says Murray went into Michael Jackson's bedroom and saw he wasn't breathing, then immediately began administering CPR.

Chernoff told the AP, regarding his client, that "He just happened to find him in his bed, and he wasn't breathing. Mr. Jackson was still warm and had a pulse."

In response to a major story circulating, Chernoff says Murray did not prescribe or give Jackson Demerol or OxyContin at any point in his treatment of the star.

Rumors have surfaced that Jackson OD'd on Demerol. Chernoff says any drugs Murray prescribed were given in response to a specific complaint from Jackson.

The mysterious Argentine woman at the center of South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford's cheating scandal has officially confessed to her relationship with him.

Maria Belen Chapur, 41, sent a statement to Buenos Aires news network C5n.

In it, she admits she and the married Mark Sanford, 48, have a relationship.

Maria Belen Chapur says she refuses to speak on her private life in greater detail and that the 200-word statement is all she plans on saying about it.

Yesterday, we reported how Mark's estranged wife, Jenny Sanford, was aware of Mark's affair with Maria and asked the Governor to dump his mistress.

This was before he went AWOL last week and embarked on his not-so-secret journey to South America to see her, which ultimately exposed the affair.

After telling his staff he was hiking on the Appalachian Trail, Sanford went off the grid and traveled to Argentina. The State newspaper in South Carolina accosted him at the Atlanta airport upon his return, after which he admitted his affair.

Follow the jump for the official statement of Maria Belen Chapur, in which she addresses the affair as well as Sanford's emails to her that were leaked ...

Yellow high heels? Fabulous.

Hoodie and no pants? Even more fabulous.

Rihanna covered up in a baby blue hooded sweatshirt and bared her legs as she stepped out of her Midtown Manhattan hotel on Saturday afternoon.

According to autograph seekers waiting outside her hotel, rumored new beau Rashard Lewis (of the NBA's Orlando Magic) was also there earlier.

As TLC scrambles to decide what the hell to do with a show that, ironically, is becoming a major hit and rapidly disintegrating at the same time, a very special retrospective episode of Jon & Kate Plus 8 will air this evening.

  • Lots of meetings with blood-sucking lawyers
  • Jon's mistress Deanna Hummel guest-starring
  • Kate in a bikini 24/7/365 to make Jon jealous
  • The kids discovering the Internet, learning about their parents' messed-up lives and being permanently scarred as a result

Here's the preview for tonight's episode ...

We've seen how it all came crumbling down after these terrific 10 years. Follow the jump for last week's tearful announcement of Jon and Kate's separation ...

Lindsay Lohan rocked out in a sexy Herve Leger bandage bikini an early 23rd birthday party for herself held at Wet Republic at the MGM Grand Resort Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas on Saturday. We have to say, she looked pretty decent.

Until we remember that it's Lindsay Lohan, of course.

Such Trash

Lindsay Lohan celebrates her 23rd birthday in style.

The Jamie Foxx moonwalk stole the show at the BET Awards Sunday night, but Janet Jackson's poignant tribute to her brother Michael Jackson was a close second.

"My entire family wanted to be here tonight, but it was just too painful so they elected me to speak with you," she told the crowd at the Shrine Auditorium in L.A.

"I would just like to say that to you, Michael is an icon," said Janet, who wore all white. "To us, Michael is family, and he will forever live in all of our hearts."

Janet Jackson, 43, is the youngest of the nine Jackson children.

"On behalf of my family and myself, thank you for all your love; thank you for all your support," she went on, tearing up near the end. "We miss him so much."

As she exited the stage, Jamie Foxx, Stevie Wonder and Ne-Yo performed a cover of the Jackson 5's "I'll Be There" as Michael Jackson photos played on screen.

Here's the video of Janet's tribute, followed by Foxx & Co.'s performance:

Of all the Michael Jackson tributes taking place since the King of Pop died tragically Thursday afternoon, this has to be one of our favorites so far.

Hosting Sunday's BET Awards at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, Foxx walked on stage dressed as an 80s era Jackson - complete with the gloves - as "Beat It" blared in the background. He shouted for the audience to clap their hands.

Saying he was there to honor Jackson, Foxx said "It don't matter what he looked like ... what his nose looked like ... it was what he sounded like."

"C'mon," he yelled, "for Michael."

Later, Foxx did the moonwalk across the stage to honor the music icon, who died Thursday at the age of 50 after suffering cardiac arrest (initial autopsy results on Jackson's body were inconclusive, and a second is reportedly being conducted).

"I am going to moonwalk for Michael Jackson," Foxx told the crowd. As he worked his way across the stage, the audience went wild.

No one can move like Michael Jackson, but Foxx certainly held his own. Check out the video of him moonwalking to "Billie Jean" ...

Kate Moss is known for fashion. She is, after all, a supermodel.

Okay, so she may be just as well known for topless photos, pregnancy rumors and allegations of being an anorexic cokehead. But she still has good style!

Lauren Conrad, meanwhile, is best known for being a reality TV star and now a young adult fiction author. But she has quite the fashion following as well.

The supermodel topped her Kate Moss for Topshop dress with a blazer for the opening of the British chain's Manhattan flagship store, while the retired star of The Hills opted for a light gray jacket to cover the printed mini while promoting her new book.

Who wore it better? Tell us below ...

South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford repeatedly asked his wife's permission to visit his lover, Maria Belen Chapur, in the months after she discovered his affair.

"I said absolutely not. It's one thing to forgive adultery; it's another thing to condone it," Jenny Sanford said in her first comments on the affair.

Jenny said that when Mark Sanford, inexplicably went off the grid last week, she hoped he was hiking on the Appalachian Trail, as his staff claimed at first.

That he had dared go to Argentina to see his mistress left her stunned.

"He was told in no uncertain terms not to see her," she said. "I was hoping he was on the Appalachian Trail. But I was not worried about his safety."

"I was hoping he was doing some real soul searching somewhere and devastated to find out it was Argentina [with Maria Belen Chapur]. It's tragic."

The Sanfords had separated about two weeks ago. Mark Sanford told the family that he wanted some time away to work on writing a book and "clear his head."

The S.C. First Lady said, "I had every hope he was not going to see her."

"You would think that a father who didn't have contact with his children, if he wanted those children, he would toe the line a little bit," she said.

Mark Sanford returned Wednesday to end nearly four days of speculation over his whereabouts, publicly confess his cheating and emotionally apologize.

Jenny Sanford, a Georgetown-educated, former Wall Street vice president, did not stand next to her husband Wednesday during his public confession.

She said she discovered her husband's affair with Maria Belen Chapur early this year after coming across a copy of a letter to her in one of his files.
