Michael Jackson's

Driver's License

Stone-Faced Stare

EXCLUSIVE

1221_2michael_jackson_driverslicense
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.

Would it have mattered if he was allowed to smile for the pic?
He was so mangled up by that point who could even tell if he was smiling.

I will never ever know what spark him to disfigure his face like this. And I still hate that he is dead. Many years ago when I was Encino. I saw MJ long before this horrible transformation. He was sporting a Jeri Curl and actually driving alone. I spoke and he spoke back. I hope that since we're passed the purification process into 13.0.0.0.0 that the truth about his death will be revealed.

Moment of Clarity    

Whenever TMZ rehashes the tiniest bit of MJ news - the freaks come out and leave odd ball comments. Yes, MJ was a little odd but the "MJ Haters" are InSaNe!

That picture is the result of sever mental illness, the inability to grasp reality, and rx drug abuse. Not to mention the shame of molesting little boys. The public saw him for what he was and his "fans " only fed into his delusions. His personal shame and inner guilt killed him. This pic is proof he was well on his way to a self destructive death.

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 world 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.
