As we come to terms with Michael Jackson‘s untimely death, TMZ.com are reporting Michael’s body was in terrible shape and he had only pills in his stomach when he died on Thursday.

Using London newspaper The Sun as a source, TMZ reports Jackson’s hips, thighs and shoulders were riddled with needle wounds. Claiming to have details of the autopsy, the paper is saying Jackson was bald at the time of his death and suffered several broken ribs, probably from the failed attempts to revive him.

There were four “injection sites” found above or near his heart, according to the paper, where rescue workers reportedly shot adrenaline into his heart in an attempt to restart it.

UPDATE: TMZ.com are now reporting the autopsy report was “fabricated”.

The Sun also says the autopsy found unexplained bruising on Jackson’s knees and on the fronts of both shins. News updates are still forthcoming.

    WOW… I miss MJ… Really do man, this happened to someone who paved the way, and did it in a respectable and inspirational way.

    I wish he had people around him that made sure he was in GOOD condition.
