Michael Jackson Prepping for World Tour!!!
Jonathan Cohen, N.Y.
In a recent interview with In Touch, author Ian Halperin said Jackson, 50, is suffering from Alpha 1-antitrypsin deficiency, which can be fatal. The author is promoting a forthcoming unauthorized biography of Jackson.
"Concerning this author’s allegations, we would hope in the future that legitimate media will not continue to be exploited by such an obvious attempt to promote this unauthorized ‘biography,’" said Dr. Tohme Tohme, described in a statement as Jackson’s "official and sole spokesperson."
"The writer’s wild allegations concerning Mr. Jackson’s health are a total fabrication," Tohme added.
The statement concludes with word that Jackson is "in fine health" and is "finalizing negotiations with a major entertainment company and television network for both a world tour and a series of specials and appearances."
