The National Enquirer has been right before.
Isaiah Washington did make gay slurs about Grey's Anatomy co-star T.R. Knight, Rielle Hunter was in fact sleeping with John Edwards, and Jamie Lynn Spears was pregnant ... albeit a few months after the celeb gossip tabloid said. Still, how prophetic!
This story, though? We have our doubts.
The Enquirer claims Michael Jackson is dying - and has only six months to live.
The supposedly desperately ill star is bedridden much of the time, and his electrifying stage performances are a thing of the past, sources reveal.
Reports first surfaced in late December that Jackson is dying slowly thanks to a rare genetic disorder that will require a lung transplant or else.
Michael Jackson looks terrifying in this picture, even by his standards.
Although the singer denied these reports, The Enquirer says his health is deteriorating rapidly because of addiction to painkillers and alcohol.
A source close to the star divulged: "It's tragic. His condition is just so far gone, I'd be surprised if he lasts six months.
"Painkillers and booze have caught up with him. The only way he was able to cope with the stress of sex scandals and his roller-coaster life was to mask the pain with substance abuse. But the end result is an addiction that will kill him."
Jacko's dependency on drugs "dates back to when his hair was burned making a Pepsi commercial," said the close source.
Twenty-five years later, "the drugs simply have ravaged him."
