Reported Jackson Autopsy -- A Fake

6/29/2009 12:14 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael JacksonWe've learned the story making the rounds detailing the terrible condition of Michael Jackson's body is a fake.

A report in The Sun gave harrowing details of the body, but we've learned the "autopsy report" was fabricated and completely false.

UPDATE: The Los Angeles County coroner just released the following statement:

"The report that is being published did not come from this office. I don't know where the information came from, or who that information came from. It is not accurate. Some of it is totally false."

Love your site TMZ but verify things first instead of trying to be the first with the scoop.

Why use a source like The Sun. It's like quoting something from In Touch or The Enquirer.

Bald, bruised knees, etc etc. Common TMZ you were doing great now that crap....don't depend on other people for your info. You guys had the inside scoop from the begining so just report what YOU know is FACT. Michael deserves that!

His crappy father needs to know Michaels fans don't like him for what he did to his son! As far as I am concerned HE killed him!

Geez, TMZ, and here I was actually thinking your crew was at least a step above the rag sheets but to post something The Sun states? There will be so many rumors and stories thrown out there that will curl our toes but only a few will be true. Don't always try to be the first to post garbage just to get it out.

So if you now know it is a fake...how about you take it down off of your site...or at least update it as a fake before you upset people.

"As we know, [Michael] is larger than he was when he was alive," Joe Jackson told ET backstage at the BET Awards. "Only thing we got to do is watch the record sales." .... OMG this is a bastard .. no word that he miss him .... just .. hey ya ... it is better now, more sales ... anybody wants original new rolex watches .... seems to me like street seller and not a sad father

I do believe the part of him being bald though... he looked to be wearing a wig for quite some time now... glad to hear the other stuff was fabricated though... it's sad what people will do for $$

I believe the autopsy report had a little embellishment but not much. I'd love to see the whole thing. Official autopsy reports are incredibly detailed down to simple scars in great description so for people who've never seen one before it can be quite a shock. It's not hard to believe that he suffered patches of baldness that required a wig, extensive scarring on his face as well as other parts due to skin grafting. The injection wounds and broken ribs is common of vigorous life saving techniques. Bruising on his knees and shins? He'd been rehearsing for the tour, so it's highly possible that there would be some injury as a result of that. However I can believe that it's possible that he took pills before the rumored demerol injection. It would appear that Michael had been in a bad state inside his own head for many years, this tour probably scared the crap outta him. It's time California did something about the recklessness of stars to acquire such amounts of narcotics. If this is truly a result of the availability of prescrption medications to people of status and we learned NOTHING from the death of Anna Nicole, we're allowing a great injustice and risk to our most beloved of stars.

WTF    

Michael Jackson had lupus. Look it up. Compare the symptoms and the results. The media loves to throw around terms like "toxicology report" and sensationalize an already sensational story.

What's new, 90% of the information that the so called media reported on MJ was fake, lies, decietful. And the bad part is, once it's out there, there are so many idiots that grab on to it and believe it, because they read it somewhere. Only in America do people enjoy tearing others down.

Obviously, it was fake. I have a medical background and could have made that up. But of course, Fox went with it and reported it as fact. TMZ, you were first with this story but now you're just writing speculation.
