Michael Jackson On 'Hunger Strike'
King of Pop reportedly refuses to eat as he battles 'cancer'...
Wednesday, June 3, 2009 - 12:06
Michael Jackson is reportedly on hunger strike in a bid to beat skin cancer.
The Thriller star, who is said to now weigh less than nine stone has repeatedly denied that he is suffering from the disease.
However, The Sun newspaper now suggests he is cutting back his food intake as he fears that putting on weight could hinder his chances of beating cancer.
A source has told the tabloid: “Michael has a phobia about getting fat. He doesn’t want to put on any weight at all. It is not healthy for him…”
They continued: “He is insistent that he’ll only eat one meal a day and is adamant that’s enough food for him. He’s very thin and frail.”
A spokesperson for Jacko has profusely denied that the King of Pop is suffering from the disease despite The Sun claiming that he was diagnosed last month.
Jacko, who is currently in rehearsals for his 50 date London residency has been spotted regularly leaving an LA medical clinic fuelling the rumours that he is in bad health.
There are fears that his o2 London shows could be affected and that Jacko is not strong enough to go ahead with the dates as he has already postponed the first four shows when the tour is due to kick off at the start of July.
Promoters insist that Jacko is in ‘good shape’ and the summer gigs will go ahead.
