Jackson in healthier days, pajamas.
Michael Jackson, poor bastard and self-proclaimed King of Pop, is in bad shape? Every time I see him in the media he looks terrific! Well, the “professionals” say otherwise:
(Biographer Ian) Halperin said Jackson has been diagnosed with Alpha 1-antitrypsin deficiency, an occasionally fatal genetic condition.
“He’s had it for years, but it’s gotten worse,” Halperin told In Touch. “He needs a lung transplant but may be too weak to go through with it. He also has emphysema and chronic gastrointestinal bleeding, which his doctors have had a lot of trouble stopping. It’s the bleeding that is the most problematic part. It could kill him,” according to the (Houston) Chronicle. (Source)
Since Alpha-1 is a genetic disorder, the other Jacksons may be screwed too! Upon hearing this ugly news, Jermaine assaulted his female guard and escaped from Soul Prison.
