Michael Jackson‘s nose was missing as he lay in the morgue awaiting an autopsy.

According to witnesses, Jackson, who was rumored to have several prosthetic noses, only had “bits of cartilage surrounding a small dark hole” where his nose should have been.

Over the years there have been numerous reports of Jackson’s prosthetic nose falling off during performances, and most recently during the CBS special “Michael Jackson: 30th Anniversary Celebration,” which aired in 2001, however, the rumors have never been substantiated.

Adrian McManus, a former housekeeper for the King of Pop, claims he had a jar of fake noses and stage glue in his closet, which he told her he used for disguises, adding that “some were similar to his real nose, just without the hole.”

Michael Jackson died June 25 from an apparent Propofol overdose. His death is now being investigated as manslaughter.
