Michael Jackson has skin cancer, paper says

Tbd-michaeljackson051909 Michael Jackson is suffering from skin cancer, but it won't affect any of his lineup of sellout concerts at London's O2 Arena in July, the ever-reliable Sun says.

“Michael’s tests showed spots of skin cancer on his body, and cells which could turn to skin cancer on his face," a source says. "He was at first very concerned, but says he has been assured by the doctors that they can treat this and he will recover."

MJ's business manager Dr. Tohme Tohme denies the report to the New York Daily News, saying the performer “couldn’t be in better shape,” although we'd beg to differ, considering how he looks in photos."He's in perfect health ... he doesn't have any diseases whatsoever."

The Sun expounds on whether there are ties to the cancer and Jackson's alleged vitiligo -- and the fact that it's been long-rumored he had straight-up skin bleaching, which has possible links to cancer. But this is The Juice*, not The Truth*, so you make the call.
