(Newser) – More photos of Michael Jackson’s apparently drug-abused body have surfaced, this time showing bruises and needle marks on his legs, the Daily Mail reports. The images, originally broadcast on ABC, also show a large black wound where an IV line apparently fed into his leg. More on Jackson:

  • Michael is undoubtedly the biological father of all three of his children, brother Tito tells the Mirror, adding that 7-year-old Blanket in particular takes after his father: “Those eyes don’t lie. Them eyes are Michael over again. I see a lot of Michael in him.”

  • Not so, says a former lover of Dr. Arnold Klein, Michael’s dermatologist. Klein is the father, as has been rumored, he tells Radar, adding that Jackson was sterile—a result of being kicked in the testicles by his father.
  • Jackson collected a variety of, er, fascinating objects—and had a new interest just before his death. The owner of a collection of nude photos—of everyone from Marilyn Monroe to Adolf Hitler’s mistress—tells E! he was in negotiations to sell it to Jackson for “eight figures.”
