(Newser) – Michael Jackson is terminally ill and has only 6 months to live, claims the National Enquirer. The supermarket tabloid reports Jackson is suffering from gastro-intestinal bleeding, as well as emphysema caused by a rare genetic condition made worse by the singer’s longtime addiction to painkillers. Anonymous sources say his condition is rapidly deteriorating. A spokesman claims Jackson is in good health.

The nameless informants say Jackson’s health has been on a downward spiral for “six to eight months” and that the King of Pop is almost entirely bedridden. "On good days, Michael is able to take his kids to a bookstore,” says one source. “But he's never out for more than an hour. He has very little strength...It's ultimately in God's hands."

Dang, seem's like the National Enquirer might have gotten this one right. Now it's just a matter of confirming what the actual cause of death was.

You are just among the stupid haters, thats all. These crazy people always give untrue stories about Michael and the most annoying thing is that most of them wants him dead. What in the world did he do to you guys? One thing is for sure that we who love him will always believe him and hope that he have a brighter future. I love you Mike. Matilda.
