When did Michael Jackson bleach his skin?

Many people still believe that Michael Jackson bleached his skin to white (that it was a deliberate cosmetic decision because he was ashamed of his skin color). However, in the mid-1980s (in the Thriller years), Michael Jackson was diagnosed with vitiligo, a skin disease that causes loss of pigmentation in patches on the body.

As Michael Jackson did not want the spots caused by the disease to be visible, he had to resort to a whitening “treatment” on the exposed parts of his body such as his hands, face, etc. in order to standardize the color of his skin. So technically he didn't bleach his skin deliberately, but the disease started and he just wanted to speed up the process so as not to have visible spots.

According to those close to him, he went to great lengths to hide using long-sleeved shirts, hats, gloves, sunglasses and masks.

When Jackson died in 2009, his autopsy definitively confirmed that he had vitiligo, as did his medical history.

Everything Michael Jackson's autopsy report reveals:

For those who are skeptical, here is what the report produced a few hours after his death indicates:

We learn in particular that Michael Jackson weighed only 55 kilos (for 1m75) and seemed to suffer from anorexia. He had nothing but pill residue in his stomach, only had one very light meal a day.

The autopsy report describes a very fragile man.

Her hips, thighs, and shoulders were covered in puncture marks, probably marks left by painkiller injections.

The report states that the singer's lips were tattooed pink, his eyebrows and the edges of his eyelids black, as well as the front of his scalp, tattooed black to blend in with his hair. Her hair, in fact, was a wig literally glued to her skull. Below, Michael Jackson was completely bald, his scalp showing the scar of his severe burn suffered on the set of a Pepsi commercial in 1984 which left him with second and third degree burns.

It was following this incident that the King of Pop reportedly began regularly wearing wigs. It was also at this time that Michael Jackson allegedly began taking painkillers to relieve the pain from his burn, leading to an addiction that would last for years, and eventually prove fatal. “He took painkillers because of his burns and he obviously developed a sort of addiction,” his brother Tito once told the Daily Mirror.

And the autopsy reveals why Michael Jackson's skin turned white:

The autopsy also reveals that his body also had numerous light and dark spots of skin found, which seem to confirm that he had vitiligo (a disease of the epidermis which is characterized by white spots (depigmentation) that appear and extend to any part of the skin. This pigmentary defect mainly affects the face, extremities, joints and areas of friction.)

According to the report, the singer also had injuries to his shins, knees and back, suggesting a recent fall shortly before his death.
