Was the deterioration in the hands of Michael Jackson a clue to his sudden death?

Was Michael Jackson’s hand deterioration a clue to his sudden death?

One month ago we reported that earlier this year ‘horrible’ photos of Michael Jackson’s hands had arrived in the media speculating about his fight with aging. Now we found an earlier photo of his left hand that confirms that the deterioration of his hands had gone very fast!

Let’s take a look at the deterioration of Michael Jackson’s hand between 2006 and 2009!

THE 2006 REPORT:

In 2006 a Dailymail report described Michael Jackson’s left hand (see the photo ABOVE) as:

“… his brown, cracked nails were desperately in need of a little attention.”

THE 2009 REPORT:

In 2009 a Dailymail report described Michael Jackson’s hands (see the photo BELOW) as follows:

“The singer’s fingers and nails appeared to be in a terrible state when he stepped out this week. … His hands looked very discoloured and skin looked like it was dangling from his fingers. His fingernails could only be described as a manicurist’s worst nightmare.”

What are the major changes in Jackson’s nails over the past few years?

One striking aspect appears to be the color at the base of his fingernails (where usually the white lunula or ‘nail moons’ are found): while in 2006 the color of that aspect of his nails appeared to be ‘dark redish’, in 2009 it had definitely become ‘brownish’.

An interesting ‘in memorium’ report about the hands of Michael Jackson describes that brown nail moon – a very unusual nail disorder – are only known to be caused by medical drugs that are being used to treat cancers of HIV (Aids). So, the ‘rare’ state of Michael Jackson’s nails indicates that the recent rumours (may 2009) that he had skin cancer could have been close to the truth. For, obviously his fingernails have indicated that Michael Jackson was not in a ‘perfect health’ at all – as stated by Dr. Tohme Tohme (a spokesman of Jackson) to the New York Daily News!

By the way, Dr. Tohme Tohme denied today in an interview with Vegas Confidential that he was one of Jackson’s doctors:

“I don’t have anything to do with his (Jackson’s) medication or health.”

  5. Some additional proof that the condition of Michael Jackson’s fingernails during the last few years of his life had nothing to do with his natural skin color, is illustrated by this PHOTO ESSAY on his fingernails (1983-2009):

    Since he was bleaching his skin, he could not bleach his fingernails so that remained brown.
    I dont beleve he had vitiligo. He just bleach his skin and pretended to have the vitiligo disease.
    But I do love MJ forever!

    We saw him shopping once, and he bought a Green Goblin statue:
