Michael Jackson's

Driver's License

Stone-Faced Stare

TMZ has obtained the last driver's license photo Michael Jackson ever took -- a big change from the singer's cheery license photo from the 1980s.

The latest photo was taken in 2005 -- four years before the King of Pop's untimely death -- and you can tell from the harrowing image ... MJ had become a tortured soul.

An image of MJ's 1980s driver's license was released by the FBI shortly after Michael died -- as part of the agency's massive file on the singer. The Bureau compiled the dossier during its investigation into child sex allegations involving the singer back in the 90s.

As you can see, Michael was a much different person back then -- smiling brightly for his photo at the DMV.

Of course, it's not like MJ ever put the license to much use -- he was pretty much exclusively chauffeured around, especially in the later years of his life.

I love Michael Jackson but this pic gives me the creeps. He was attractive when younger but became creepy looking as he got older-that's a fact we have to face- Check out his autopsy report. He was really in bad shape!

Who looks good in a DMV picture? I have yet to see a good DMV picture where people look like themselves. I look like I am thinking of killing someone!

Those pictures prove that Michael Jackson was a much better person Black than he ever was White.

I don't understand what would possess someone to do this to themselves.. He looks like a circus freak.. He used to be a relatively handsome man...


I guess all the guilt over what he did to those boys mad him - hate himself... He was a very creepy man who lucked onto finding people who could write great songs and produce great beats...

Really TMZ? Is this all you have better to do on Christmas Eve is to pick at a dead man? Are there not even enough living celebrities for you to stalk and pick at? This is in EXTREMELY POOR TASTE even for you! Michael Jackson has been picked on enough. Now all news outlets are showing and plastering this pitiful story. It was this type of mockery that killed him long before he died. What is there to smile about when the whole word is after you? How would you look if it were you? Who does take a good license? Even my looks bad! This was taken during one of the worst times of Michael's life and shame on you for posting this. One day you will face God for how miserable you have made others just to get a story.
