Rumor? Michael Jackson Needs a Lung Transplant


Michael Jackson is ailing from a rare lung condition and needs to undergo a transplant, according to the author of a new biography on the King of Pop.

Author Ian Halperin said Jackson, 50, suffers from Alpha 1-antitrypsi deficiency, a condition that can be fatal. ” ‘He’s had it for years, but it’s gotten worse,'” Halperin said in an interview In Touch magazine. `”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. It’s the bleeding that is the most problematic part. It could kill him.'” Halperin also said Jackson “can barely speak'” and is having trouble seeing: “The vision in his left eye is 95 percent gone.
