MICHAEL JACKSON tried to keep a nasty secret under wraps: His feet were rotting away! According to his physician Dr. Conrad Murray, the Gloved One always wore socks to hide grotesquely deformed feet and a foul fungal infection that made his flesh look decayed! The doctor said the “Blood on the Dance Floor” singer couldn’t use his tortured tootsies to moonwalk without experiencing out-of-this-world pain!
The King of Pop’s feet “were covered in calluses,” revealed Murray as he described Michael’s “advanced chronic fungal infection” in his book, “This Is It.”
It turned out he always wore socks because he was so ashamed of the way his feet looked! The crippling fungus provides a painful footnote to the life of Jackson — who died in June 2009 of cardiac arrest after Murray administered a shot of the addictive painkiller propofol. The doctor served two years of his four-year sentence for involuntary manslaughter.
