Michael Jackson may have a severe infection that has spread throughout his entire body. The singer is receiving antibiotics through an IV drip, reports The Sun.

The paper says the 50-year old singer may have contracted a staph infection following cosmetic surgery on his nose.

“The infection has spread throughout his face and body and is being aggressively treated by doctors," a source told The Sun. "There’s a chance it could turn into a flesh-eating disorder where it begins to kill off his skin so he’s being very carefully monitored.”

Jackson was photographed outside a health clinic, where his hands and face appeared inflamed and blotchy.
