This story of Michael having LUPUS are coming back because of one royal liar "RF"! During the time those lies that were spread through the "Vanity Fair" magizine a lot of those rumors were shot down. But I don't remember a denial back then either of the Lupus story:mellow: If anyone remembers a denial can you tell me. Lupus is a serious desease and I know many people suffering from it. It would be a new low for "RF to put this on some one if it's infact a lie!:ohnoyoudidnt

I could be wrong, and maybe somebody else knows more, but I think Michael has spoken at some Lupus awareness event or something at one time (I think I saw a picture back in the day). There are different types of Lupus, and he might have one. It's serious, but sometimes managable.

Roger F. could occasionally be right about something... LOL! Like, if he said, "Michael Jackson made an album called Thriller..." But, I think him mentioning: Grace may have Lupus according to a rumor, but Michael is the one who really has it, but Grace is just wanting to marry MJ, blah, blah, blah... Lupus, although a creative angle to belatedly get in on the "Michael married the nanny" rumor, was a pathetic as hell excuse to name check Michael and dis Grace, without getting sued, IMHO!!

Just because he spoke at an event doesn't mean he has whatever it is he's trying to raise money for. He also has done work for people with AIDS in Africa. Doesn't mean he has AIDS.

This is medical information. He is under no obligation to share his medical history with anyone, let alone some desperate, ba$tard at FOX who needs to get a life.

DO NOT spread unsubstantiated stories about this here.

My intention is'nt to spread stories. Ms.Bain has addressed and denied many stories about Michael's health that were falsely reported in the media. I just asked if it's been denied before because the rumour was brought back to life in an article.:8-26-03respect:

Most of these tabloid news people get these stories from "RF" and begin to spread them. I've seen this story circulating recently again on several sites. That's why I asked if it's already been denied before.:unsure:

My bad. I wasn't trying to spread any rumors - I thought it may have been confirmed by Michael himself at some point, and those were a couple things I found through a google search. I wondered if maybe somebody knew what he'd said at the actual Lupus event (whether he was interested in the cause because he had it, or if it was just something he was speaking at for other reasons). I don't know where to find a transcript of his speech, if he gave one. So, I wasn't trying to do anything inappropriate, I promise. :( I'm 32 years old and I've been a hardcore fan since I was 7. I'm not in the business of dissing Mike!! Far from it. :)

Sorry to bring back an old topic but I found that. It's from a 1991 article

"La Toya offered an explanation for Michael’s appearance last week and it’s a new one that the family hasn’t mentioned, confirmed or denied before: Michael LaToya has said, has grown lighter over the years because he has lupus, a chronic disorder that causes skin lesions and can be aggravated by the sun. He doesn’t want anybody to know he has this disease, she said. Indeed he has never mentioned it publicly. She said that Michael was first diagnosed 12 years ago. He avoids the sun she said and his skin color has faded as a result. "


"Dear Colleagues:

I can confirm that Michael Jackson had vitiligo and discoid (chronic cutaneous lupus) and never had systemic disease that played any role in his passing.

I am concerned that some commentators are relating that a background of abuse has anything to do with lupus. There has never been a peer reviewed published article that specifically has shown this in lupus.

Thanks

From the Dr who made the strip search

"“Michael had a disease vitiligo in which the pigment is lost and attempts had been made to bring that pigment back which had been unsuccessful so he tried to bleach it out so it would be one colour.

Lupus is also an autoimmune disease and he also had skin involvement, which had destroyed part of the skin of his nose and his nasal surgeries and all were really reconstructive, to try and look normal. “

So all these nose reconstructions you’re saying was as a result of him treating his lupus?

“The first one was to try and reconstruct from some scar tissue and obstruction that had happened with the skin there. It didn’t work out very well and all subsequent attempts were to make it right.

I think he was trying to look like a normal guy as best as that he could.”

From Gotham Chopra
By Lesley Messer of People.com

"It was very disturbing to him that people thought he always wanted to be white and he was bleaching his skin. [But] he identified as being a black person and so it was troubling to him that everyone thought that he was a hater of his own race," Gotham explains. "And the lupus, why he didn't just come out more clearly and say that was the problem, I'm not sure. But I know it was something that bothered him a lot."

IMO
He didn't think his medical history, sex life, or the identity of Blanket's mother was something to share with planet.
I will remember you.
