Prince Jackson is suffering from Vitiligo, according to a new tabloid report. That's the same skin disease that famously plagued his famous father, Michael.
The eldest son of the late King of Pop was allegedly photographed leaving a martial arts class in Beverly Hills, Calif., with white patches on his arms.
Those distinctive markings "appear to be Vitiligo, which can run in families," said dermatologist Dr. Jerome Litt, also an author of Your Skin From A to Z.
“There’s no way to tell how much pigment a person will lose, but it can spread over the entire body,” said the physician, who has not treated either Jackson.
The legendary singer first announced he was suffering from the skin disease, which causes a loss of color that results in white patches, in a 1993 interview.
In 2010, in the aftermath of his death, the Michael Jackson autopsy findings confirmed that he had Vitiligo with noticeable “patches of light and dark pigmented areas.”
