Michael Jackson Dying?

Ian Halperin is behind a new book detailing the life of 50 year old Michael Jackson. In the biography, health issues are outlined and range from Alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency to emphysema. The first condition is a possible fatal genetic illness which requires a lung transplant in Jacko’s case. Ian is convinced he might not live much longer.

“He has had Alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency for years, but it’s gotten worse. 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. He can barely speak, the vision in his left eye has 95 per cent.”

“For years Michael has been working with doctors to make sure it doesn’t progress. He has been on medications that have stabilised him.”

Jermaine Jackson confirmed to Fox News that his brother isn’t doing well and is indeed sick. Ian comes from a decent and pretty reputable writing background he was a write for “Rolling Stone” magazine. How sad....Where is House when you need him?!?
