NEVER seen before snaps have revealed the scars of Michael Jackson's alleged drug taking in their full horror.
The shocking set of pics obtained by ABC News in America show discoloured needle marks and a hideous blotch on the pop legend's legs seven years ago.
Dr Debra Jaliman, a spokeswoman for the American Academy of Dermatology, told the TV network: "It looks like there are multiple pu More..nctures from intravenous placement."
The specialist added that it is "unusual" for injections to be placed in the leg, a measure she believed must have been necessary if no veins in the upper body were accessible.
Jaliman said the blotch might have been the result of Necrosis, a condition that could have surfaced due to intravenous fluids dripping into the Thriller star's lower leg.
She said the damage also might be attributable to a caustic, damaging fluid the late Beat It singer's skin made contact with.
