A few years back South Park did a genius episode where Michael Jackson moved to the neighborhood calling himself “Mr Jefferson,” won over Cartman’s affection but freaked all the kids out at the end where his face started falling off. Who knew they were so prescient? Reports now claim that the star is suffering from a serious “superbug” infection on his face and is receiving heavy-duty antibiotics to try and curtail the MRSA-style disease.
“Experts warned it threatened to develop into a terrifying flesh-eating disorder which could kill off areas of the superstar’s skin and leave him in need of major reconstructive surgery,” says The Sun.
The troubled pop legend has been snapped visiting a Beverley Hills clinic with his hands and face “visibly inflamed with red and purple blotches.” Bleee! Of course, this surely won’t affect Jacko’s planned comeback and rumored world tour. True fans can always see past a frightening, swollen, infected face, can’t they? [Photo: Splash News Online]
