Tyson: 'Jackson Wore Glove To Hide Skin Condition'

Beloved actress CICELY TYSON has shed some light on the real story behind pal MICHAEL JACKSON's trademark glove - he wore it to hide a terrible skin condition.
Fans thought the late King of Pop's trademark single glove was a fashion statement but Tyson insists there was more to the accessory.
The actress, who shared a fashion designer with Jackson throughout the 1980s, tells CNN, "All of a sudden, he (designer) said, 'I'm doing this glove for Michael.' Michael was beginning to develop the vitiligo and it started on his hand. The glove was to cover the vitiligo; that's how that glove came into being."
