Michael Jackson has reportedly been told by medics that he needs to put weight on before starting his London residency at the 02 this summer.
Jacko is said to be a worryingly 20lbs underweight and has been advised to pile on the pounds before the 50 date tour kicks off on July 8th.
A source has told The Sun: “There are concerns Michael is too frail. He has been ordered to eat more but he refuses and eats more like a bird.”
The Billie Jean singer, 50 is also currently on antibiotics for a skin infection, has a back injury and can be frequently seen in a surgical face mask to avoid picking up illnesses.
Despite Michael’s obvious health issues, promoters of the This Is It tour have stated that Jacko is ‘extremely fit.’
Michael is also allegedly being sued by actress Ola Ray who starred alongside Jacko in his legendry Thriller video.
According to TMZ.com, the former Playboy playmate has claimed that she was promised a cut of the 1983 promo but received nothing.
Michael is currently rehearsing for the tour in LA. Keep it MTV News for any further Jacko developments.
