Michael Jackson

Michael Jackson has reportedly been secretly battling skin cancer and was recently diagnosed after doctors spotted signs of cancer on his neck and pre-cancerous cells on his face. But no need to worry. Reports suggest the condition is 100% treatable and Jacko will be able to carry out his “This is It” finale tour this summer in London.

A source tells British tabloid The Sun: “Michael’s test showed spots of skin cancer on his body, and cell which could turn to skin cancer on his face. He was at first very concerned, but says he has been assured by the doctors that they can treat this and he will recover. Michael is really looking forward to his concerts and is determined to wow his fans at each and every gig. He said he’s insisted that any treatment must fit around the concerts, and the show will go on.”

So that explains the face masks and umbrellas he’s always photographed with! Or at least it gives him more of an excuse…
