  • He had a skin condition called viteligo (sp?) it is where you lose pigment in your skin. You may have seen some people with the condition...they usually have blotches of white and dark skin all over their body. I think because he was in entertainment, he just bleached his skin so that it was all one color and you couldn't see the blotches. Its a pretty devastating mom had a friend who had it too. Many people assume he bleached his skin because he didn't want to be black anymore but I'm pretty sure doctors confirmed that he had the condition.

  • I thought it was skin disease. But that might have been a cover-up.

  • He really wanted to be a white man. His skin is bleached.

  • Ash9724, you're exactly right. As far as I've ever read/heard, they did confirm Viteligo. I would assume that he bleached, too, to hide the patches, though, most people affected wear makeup to cover it. *shrug* who knows, though.

  • His skin is bleached

    Yes, it is. He bleached it because his disease made him feel worse with the patches and blotches. I left the rest of your answer know why!

  • I have Vitiligo, my blotches are on my chest and back..I actually had a nurse say to me in the hospital that I had a wierd tan (it was summertime too). Ive considered bleaching my skin too..but its very expensive. If he had it, he had plenty of money to do it..I wouldnt blame him at all...that is IF thats why he did it of course.

  • He said he had a "skin condition" that turned all his skin white. I never believed that, just like he never had surgery on his nose. He probably bleached his skin.
