The King of Pop is on his deathbed, claims a shocking new report. Michael Jackson is said to be suffering from a genetic disease called A1AD — alpha-1 anti-trypsin deficiency — which has left him blinded in his left eye and so weak he is barely able to speak.

Jacko’s biographer, Ian Halperin, tells Britain’s Daily Express, "He needs a lung transplant, but may be too weak to go through with it. He also has emphysema and chronic gastrointestinal bleeding, which his doctors have had a lot of trouble stopping. It’s the bleeding that’s the most problematic part. It could kill him."

On his Web site Halperin added, "A close friend of Jackson told [me] the singer is scared he won’t live longer than six months."

According to a statement from Jackson’s official spokesperson, Dr. Tohme Tohme, the reports of Michael’s respiratory disease are a "total fabrication."
