‘Terrified’ Jacko caught leaving clinic with bag marked ’skin cancer’May 23rd, 2009 - 12:20 pm ICT by ANI
London, May 23 (ANI): Michael Jackson was spotted stepping out of a medical centre with a bag marked “skin cancer”.
The King of Pop was said to have spots of the disease on his upper body while pre-cancerous cells found their way on his face.
The 50-year-old reportedly had a painful skin-shaving surgery in Beverly Hills to clear his flesh of potentially lethal growths on May 21.
And doctors were allegedly waiting to see if the Thriller hitmaker needed spot radiation treatment.
His spokesman had previously dismissed reports claiming that the singer has skin cancer, insisting he is in “the best of health.”
But the Thriller hitmaker was seen leaving the clinic with the bag, carried by a minder, and it read: “Diseases of the skin, skin cancer and skin cancer chemosurgery.”
“He’s putting on a brave face but is absolutely terrified,” the Sun quoted a close source as saying.
Jackson was due to kick off his much-awaited comeback 50-show run at the 20,000-capacity O2 Arena on July 8.
But the opening night of his This Is It UK tour has already been pushed to July 13, while three other gigs, previously slated for July 10, 12 and 14, will not be staged until March next year. (ANI)
