Michael Jackson: Too frail to pull off his London run?

Posted on


Jacko_lAnyone who followed Michael Jackson’s trial will remember how weak and delicate he seemed, and last summer he was photographed being pushed around in a wheelchair. Now a report on The Wrap.com is raising questions about the superstar’s ability to complete his 50-date concert series at London’s O2 Arena this summer. The website quotes a source close to the Jackson family as saying that the Thriller star “gets sleepy, tired” and now weighs a mere 135 pounds. Accompanying the piece is a recent picture of Jackson in which he does look especially fragile and thin. However, the article also quotes World Music Awards producer, and Jackson friend, Gary Pudney saying that the singer is “healthy and rehearsing in Los Angeles.”

What do you think, Music Mixers? Can Jackson actually pull off this long run of shows?
