ABC News photos
ABC News released photos of Michael's legs that supposedly show 'fresh needle marks' as well as well as an injury caused by a 'caustic fluid'. These pictures are not new (check out photos in my Vitiligo post from two years ago and you will see the photo of Michael lifting up his leg and revealing it). These photos are old and this injury did not result from from a caustic acid and wasn't necrosis, it was attributed to a spider bite which caused Michael to miss a court appearance that day. The photos were taken to prove to the judge that the excuse was valid. As for needle marks, none of that is confirmed yet and could just be bug bites or any number of things. We will not replicate those photos beyond the information and photos already presented out of respect. Our job is to debunk pop culture rumors, not add to them.
