Jackson Autopsy -- Singer Was a Healthy Mess

10/1/2009 1:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Jackson Autopsy UPDATE: 1:03 PM ET The Coroner also determined Jackson was actively producing sperm.

More details on the Michael Jackson autopsy. According to a new report, Jackson had osteoarthritis which was visible on his lower spine and fingers.

He had dark tattoos on his eyebrows and around his eyes and a dark tattoo on the front of his scalp -- possibly to cover the permanent scarring from burns suffered in Pepsi mishap.

The report says he was balding and suffered a skin disease. We've previously reported Jackson suffered from vitiligo.

His heart was strong but his lungs were inflamed.

The report says Jackson's stomach had no obvious signs of pills, nor were illegal drugs or alcohol detected.

The manner of death -- already reported to be a homicide -- was based in part on Propofol administered in a non-hospital setting.

My psychiatrist-Dr. Howard Shapiro of Beverly Hills who is also a Lupus expert-if you Google that name and Lupus you'll see just how knowledgeable he is and Jackson had that disease-and a really top notch ethical guy-could have helped Michael Jackson immensely IF Drs. Klein, Metzger, etc. had let him anywhere around them. They didn't-I'm not saying he could have saved Jackson, only Michael Jackson could have made that decision, but he DEFINITELY could have helped him.

Does this mean an arrest is imminent if they are releasing these details? I wouldn't have thought Michael would have had other drugs in his system due to the fact he'd been rehearsing. He'd want to be on top of his game and not under the influence; he had always performed through his pain. I truly believe he was going into another chapter of his life, fully focused and determined. Such a damn shame. As for the ailments and tattoos, most of us knew all that by this point. Did we love him less? No, it made him human.

Note his heart was strong - very profound - was there ever any doubt?

TMZ, you are really late with this news. Foxnews reported this June 27th, 2 days AFTER MJ died. Read it for yourself.

There could be many reasons why MJ had those needle remarks. REMEMBER THAT NURSE THAT BROKE THE STORY ABOUT THE PROPOFOL?! SHE SAID THAT THERE WERE NO NEEDLE MARKS ON MJ.

So those marks could have been made later, or when Dr. Murray was trying to correct the error he made. TMZ, why do you always overlook this part of what the nurse said? It's as if you WANT MJ TO BE A DRUG ADDICT.

we fans arent in denial!! you idiots are gullable as heck! you all believe everything, when have you not? when stop now right? MJ could never get back on top or back to even after the media took advantage of every crack to tear him down, they made up stories just like they do with every other celeb! so why do you all believe the fake MJ stories but laugh at the other fake stories bout other celebs??
Just because he had those injection marks doesnt mean he was a big drug addict, all he took was drugs to put him to sleep, and he was monitored, altho not well, by Conrad Murray...he didnt want to die, he just wanted to be able to sleep and relax so when he was awake he felt rested don't make it and twist it into somethin else because of the report you see that has been made into somethin it's not Propofol isnt suppose to ruin your organs so why would his organs or any major part of his body have anything other than natural problems? like arthritis

glad to hear some confirmation out there about his vitiligo because people of course believed the fake stories more than the true ones

LOVE YA MICHAEL, ALWAYS AND FOREVER

Travolta couldn't handle the truth either    

Don't forget!!! Just because he made sperm didn't mean he knew how to use his little stick except for extra tight places.

Liza Minnelli said that when MJ autopsy report came out we would be chocked to here what was thru and not thru and many people would regret the way they treated him... she is right so far, osteoarthritis can be very painful as well. He had a skin condition and he could produce sperm. I believe that his honor will be restored some day. To bad he didn`t liv to se justice be served. R.I.P Michael

LOLOL to all those mother pluckers who said MJ couldn't produce sperm!

His kids ARE his biological kids!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And no illegal drugs - And here's Harvey Levin trying to push Michael as an addict.

Harvey, how about some forensic expert research before adding your slant, huh?

The needle marks were made POST MORTEM!!!!
