London, July 25 (IANS) A witness who saw pop legend Michael Jackson on an autopsy table in Los Angeles revealed that the singer's false nose was missing.
The witness claimed that all there was on Jacko's face where his nose should have been was a small hole, reported mirror.co.uk.
"The prosthesis he normally attached to his damaged nose was missing, revealing bits of cartilage surrounding a small dark hole," said the witness.
His real nose was so ravaged by plastic surgery it had vanished completely. Jacko's former housekeeper Adrian McManus claimed the the star had lots of false noses.
"His nose was a problem. He wore plasters around the side to cover or support it. It was severely caved in. In his closet he had a jar of fake noses and stage glue, which he told me he used for disguises. But some were similar to his real nose, just without the hole," said McManus.
It is believed Jacko had at least six nose jobs. One of the reasons was said to have been because he looked too much like his dad Joe.
Jacko's obsession with surgery stemmed from the bullying he suffered as a kid. Neighbourhood youngsters branded him Big Nose.
But Jacko ended up wearing fake ones to cover the devastating effect of going under the knife so often.
His own tiny nose had been shaved away by cosmetic surgeons and his nostrils were almost too narrow for him to breathe when dancing.
