More than ten years after his death, Michael Jackson continues to be talked about. When it is not accusations of pedophilia that bring him back to the fore, it is theories around his death (or rather, his survival) that alarm the Web. But if the King of Pop still attracts the curiosity of some, it’s mainly because of his nose, cause of the worst complexes for the mythical singer and target of all rumors. One of them, several years old, even claims that the interpreter of Billie jean would have lost it while filming following numerous cosmetic surgery operations. Conrad Murray, the former principal’s doctor, even claimed in 2013 that the artist had to wear a plastic prosthesis at the tip of his nose.
We finally know more about Michael Jackson’s nose condition. This Monday, April 20, this article by our British colleagues from Mirror reveals the truth. When the singer died, several photos of his remains had been posted on the Web, revealing a horrifying scene: the King’s prosthesis was missing. “The prosthesis he normally attached to his nose was missing, revealing pieces of cartilage surrounding a small dark hole “, revealed a witness to the magazine Rolling Stone. Michael Jackson’s nose was without nostrils and even irreparable, according to the surgeon specialized in rhinoplasty Pamela Lipkin. According to his explanations to the magazine Allure, cited by The Mirror, “something in his nose, a transplant, an implant, something came out through the skin”.
