UPDATE: TMZ is claiming that this report is fraudulent
We’ve learned the story making the rounds detailing the terrible condition of Michael Jackson‘s body is a fake.
A report in The Sun gave harrowing details of the body, but we’ve learned the “autopsy report” was fabricated and completely false.
From The New York Daily News
LOS ANGELES – Even in death, Michael Jackson’s corpse wasn’t safe: Gruesome details from his autopsy were reported in a London newspaper on Monday.
The Sun of London report painted a tragic picture of a 50-year-old man so frail he weighed only 112 pounds and whose stomach contained no food – just semidigested pills.
Several of Jackson’s ribs were broken in the frantic attempt to pump life back into his heart. Four needle wounds were near his heart, apparently from failed efforts to restart it by shooting adrenaline directly into the organ.
Jackson had lost most of his hair, and his haggard face was disfigured by 13 plastic surgeries, The Sun said.
His emaciated hips, thighs and shoulders were riddled with needle marks, the paper said.
