Michael Jackson Gravely Ill.

Michael Jackson is ailing from a rare lung condition and needs to undergo a transplant, according to the author of a new biography on the King of Pop.

Author Ian Halperin said Jackson, 50, suffers from Alpha 1-antitrypsin deficiency, a condition that can be fatal.

"He’s had it for years, but it’s gotten worse," Halperin said in an interview with In Touch magazine. "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."

Halperin also said Jackson "can barely speak" and is having trouble seeing: "The vision in his left eye is 95 percent gone."

Jackson’s spokesman was unavailable for comment.


This sounds pretty bad...
As strange (eccentric) as M.J. might be, he's still the King. The man shaped pop music as it is today, you cant deny him. If you're in your 20's or 30's you probably wanted to grow up to be him at some point.
Lets all send Michael our mental well wishes, think of him while you enjoy what he's brought to your life through song.

Dont front like this isnt some of the BADDEST shit youve EVER seen!

* UPDATE: Jackson's official spokesperson has confirmed this story was a bogus attempt to publicize this "biographers" book. I'm glad M.J. is OK, but I dont appreciate my emotions being played with!
