Michael Jackson in Critical Health?


After turning 50 a few months ago, rumor has it that the King of Pop, Michael Jackson, is in very critical health condition and may need a lung transplant.  Jackson’s biographer, Ian Halperin, revealed that Jackson is struggling with a genetic disease caled A1AD (alpha-1 anti-trysin deficiency) where the affected person lacks a certain protein that protects the lungs.

Halperin claims that the pop idol also has emphysema and chronic gastrointestinal bleeding which doctors have difficulty controlling.  Jackson allegedly even has trouble speaking.  And to make matters worse, Halperin claims that 95% of Jackson’s vision in his left eye is already gone.

Though there has been no confirmation on the report, it was notable that Jermaine Jackson, Michael’s brother, commented that his little brother is not doing so well when asked about the situation.

Whether it is true or not, hope things get better.  Michael Jackson has lived an extraordinary difficult life despite the fame and the affluence.
