Jermaine Jackson - Jermaine Jackson Shocked By 'Skeletal' Michael

Jermaine Jackson was shocked by his brother Michael's skeletal appearance when he died.

Jermaine has spoken movingly of his horror upon hearing of the death of his sibling - who died from acute Propofol intoxication in June 2009 - and admitted his frail brother looked like someone who had been "ravaged by cancer or anorexia".

Recalling his visit to the hospital to see the pop legend's body, he said: "Michael was lying on a trolley in a hospital gown. I steadied myself, took a breath, and entered the side door to the right. I went over to the other side of Michael, reaching down to take his hand, rubbing his still-soft skin. I couldn't believe how skeletal he was. He seemed half the size he had been a month earlier. If a stranger had walked into the room, they would have assumed he had been ravaged by cancer or anorexia."

Jermaine was so shocked by the sudden death of his beloved brother he found he "couldn't pull away" and lifted one of Michael's eyelids in order to "see" him one last time.

In an extract from his book 'You Are Not Alone: Michael Through A Brother's Eyes' serialised by The Times newspaper, he revealed: "I leant down and kissed him on the forehead, telling him I loved him. I found I couldn't pull away. I lifted one of his eyelids because I wanted to look into his eyes, 'see' him one last time. I rested my forehead against his and wept."
