    Vitiligo? It's obvious he's wearing quite a bit of makeup in the left picture so that's maybe when it first came about, and his skin is blotchy…Just a thought…?

  26. 26


  27. 27

    Guess he's claiming vitaligo too! NO one cares when whites get a tan all year long! I loved MJ but I don't believe for a second he had it! He tatooed his lips RED and then had WHITE kids!

  28. 28

    He is becoming Michael Jackson!

  29. 29


  30. 30

  31. 31

    Horrible, what the fuck?

  32. 32

    out in the sun every day versus out of direct sunlight? Darkenling/lightening…he has no splotches.

  33. 33

    ewwww! what the hell?

  34. 34

  36. 36

    wtf is he doing to his face…wow. i didn't even know it was him til i read what you wrote…gross. fucking freak.

  37. robio says – reply to this


    He had a skin procedure to take care of damaged skin from years of being in the sun as a professional baseball player. This of course was not mentioned to generate a scandal of some sort. Other sites had this first and some happened to mention him seeing a dermatologist.

  38. 38

    ewww he looks weird now

  39. 39

    "rejuvination and lighting" apparently. perez, do you google other gossip sites to get your stories?

  40. 40

    He already looked like he had down syndrome..now he's just down right ALIEN.

  41. 41

    Guess he got tired of being pulled over for "no reason" or being "harassed by the popo" so he decided to go white.

  42. 42

    He had a treatment done to his skin by his dermatologist to correct sun damage from YEARS of playing… he is experiencing something called flaking… it will go away and in person doesn't really look that harsh… it just appears A LOT whiter in pics, but up close you can still see his pigment underneath it all… He will be lighter by a shade or too… A lesson to us all: damaging your skin with harmful sun exposure without sunscreen may result in having to get it fixed…Thank God it can get fixed!

    Perez chill out… just wait it will get better.

  43. 43

    Perhaps he's just a really big "Twilight" fan!!

  44. 44

    Next he'll be changing his name to Sammy "Cullen"……

  45. 45

    that looks creepy

  46. 46

    That’s what happens when your body ages after years of steroid abuse

  47. 47

    He looks like a corpse.

  48. 48

    *lol* WTF??? :lol: :roll:

  49. 49

    well, i cant blame you guys for not knowing everything, you check perez hilton site and you dont know the development of the news because this pig only says what he wants to create more hysterism

    Sammy Sosa said he is in a skin treatment to heal the sun exposure damage, and he said that in the photos he is completely different because in real life he still looks alot black so yeah, its because of the photo

  50. 50

    WTF happened to his fucking face!!!!!

  51. 51

    More than likely it's vitiligo. Here is an entry from Wikipedia:
    Vitiligo (pronounced /ˌvɪtəl.ˈaɪɡoʊ/ ( listen), UK: /ˌvɪtɨˈlaɪɡoʊ/) is a chronic disorder that causes depigmentation in patches of skin. It occurs when the melanocytes, the cells responsible for skin pigmentation which are derived from the neural crest, die or are unable to function. The precise pathogenesis, or cause, of vitiligo is complex and not yet fully understood. There is some evidence suggesting it is caused by a combination of autoimmune, genetic, and environmental factors. It is also common in people with thyroid disorders. The population incidence worldwide is considered to be less than 1 percent.[1] Non-segmental vitiligo has a greater prevalence than the disorder's other form(s).

    It is something definitely worth learning about, instead of making stupid comments about black people wanting to be white - that's just foolishness (yeah, Michael Jackson certainly had ALOT of issues about his appearance, but alot of his issues were clearly tied to some kind of body morpic disorder))

  52. 52

    TF: laser treatmeant against skin ageing.

  53. 53

    I guess someone scared the black out of him!

  54. 54

    this is truly so sad…please don't be a michael all over again

  55. 55

    Re: Miguel123 – sun exposure treatment!! Hahahahahaha! And if you believe that i have some swamp..er ..ahem…I mean VACATION property to sell you in Florida!! He was so dark he would have had very good tolerance of the sun. Its whites who get the damage.

  56. 56

    He looks like a wax statue now.

  57. 57

    old news, he's turning white!

  58. 58

    Damn…are u seri?

  59. Twime says – reply to this


    I don't get why people who have darker skin would want to be white. Surely they should be proud of their skin colour.

  60. 60

    Black or white… he's still an epic fug.

  61. 61

    Re: blubabiecutie – Wake up biatch!! Michael Jackson hated her skin color, and Sammy Sosa is another fool if he thinks this would make him better. None of them had any skin condition… well, any other than the one they're causing by bleaching their skin….. bullshit!!

  62. 62

    ewww!!!!! WTF?????????? WHAT A FUCKING NASTY FREAK!! people, leave your faces alone!!!!

  63. 63

    He's staying out of the sun. Big effing deal.

  64. 64

    Well, no one wants to be black.

  65. 65

    the left looks like hes wearing black makeup

  66. 66

    I don't understand why people are upset with this. It's a good thing. Everyone knows that light-skinned people are less likely to steal from you than dark-skinned people.

  67. lya says – reply to this


    it was first on D……, and others blogs that used this picture said where it was from but not you…

  68. 68


  69. 69

    Is he wearing green contact?

  70. 70

    People really need to get a clue, people with dark skin do tan in the summer like everyone else. Their skin is darker in the summer than in the winter. And to the fool that said blacks don't get sun damage, yes anyone can get sun damage, true they don't get it as quick but they get it. I knew this black guy who was med brown skin, and when his mother died he stayed in the house for months depressed and his skin was the color of most white people when I saw him.

  71. 71

    This is the funniest Separated at Birth I've seen Perez! Sammy went white in 5 months flat.

  72. Yese says – reply to this


    omg does he have a sink condition

  73. Yese says – reply to this


    I don't get why people who have darker skin would want to be white. Surely they should be proud of their skin colour

  74. 74

    The Work of Arnie Klein i'm sure

  75. 75

    he looks better…

  76. 76

    Re: xcalibur – Exposure setting? You're a fucking idiot!

  77. 77

    Re: kissmyassobama – Exactly! So Miguel says that Sosa said that in the photo he looks like this but in reality he's still dark??? WTF does that mean?

  78. 78

    Re: kissmyassobama
    That's a complete fallacy. Light skinned people are more PRONE to sun damage, but Bob Marley died from melanoma, ffs, so obviously being dark skinned does not mean your skin cannot be damaged by the sun.

  79. 79

    Light dark he still fugly

  80. 80

    looks like someone else has MJ disease

  81. 81

    Its pretty evident that he also suffers from vitilago.He probably wore make-up before hand and we never knew about it.

  82. 82

    O_o He had a beautiful skin color. Why would he want to do something like this? I'm assuming it's something done on purpose and not like "vitiglio" like MJ always claimed.

  83. 83

    Re: Renee1234 – Exactly! he doesn't play in the sun anymore. Also, when he was playing the cubs were ALWAYS playing day games. He's probably sitting inside playing video games. No more tan for him!

  84. 84

    Re: kissmyassobama – Wow, with your lack of knowledge, ignorance towards science, and your avatar, you make most republicans turn in their graves. I'd suggest running into a wall of knives.

  85. 85

    He must have that same disease MJ {RIP} did! WTF???

  86. 86

    He may be using a skin lightener. My own thought is that he's not in the sun as much now. I lighten up a little during the winter months. Maybe he does too? lmao…. yeah he's probably bleaching!

  87. 87

    Ewwwwwe, I'm scared :(

  88. 88

    aaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhh……..wtf?????????????? caareeeeeepy!!!!!!!!

  89. 89


  90. 90

    For all the people leaving comments implying that Michael Jackson didn't have a skin disease (Viligo, and Lupus)…… Michael Jackson's AUPOSY CONFIRMED that he DID have the skin disease.

  91. 91

    the sammy on the right is scary!

  92. 92

    Ok, I'm all about making fun of stupid things celebrities do, say, or wear, but I think when it comes to health conditions, the golden rule applies to you as well Perez. We should not make fun of people because of health conditions. This is similar to the oppression of others, such as the gays. I am sure Sammy, if it is indeed vitiligo, a disease that causes depigmentation in patches of skin, is not feeling proud or happy about it, and you are adding onto the embarrassment that a lot of people with these diseases that affect your looks feel. Why not leave it alone? I sure hope you never have such a thing happen to you, because you will regret this if it did.

  93. 93

    he's definately bleaching, sammy's dominican, they're known for hating their african ancestry, they want to seperate themselves from anything considered "black" when in reality they look more black then regular black ppl, alot of them feel like lighter skin is better, its really disgusting!!

  94. 94

    the picture on the left looks like he is wearing make up

  95. 95

    OMG! WTF?!

  96. 96

    OMG! He's turning into Michael Jackson….

  97. 97

    Re: xcalibur – honestly, the fact that you're telling perez he knows "dipshit about photography" is comical because if you think the difference in Sosa's skin tone is because of the lighting when this picture was taken…YOU know dipshit about photography. i'm honestly laughing at your stupidity. thanks for the entertainment.

  98. 98

    Is everyone stupid?!? Ever heard of melanin?!? His eyes are exactly the same color, we had a shitty summer without enough sunlight, of course his skin is going to be lighter. I'm amazed at the absolute idiocy on this website sometimes. Perez, I get that you're a gossip blogger, not even trying to resemble a journalist, but come on…. Maybe most of american is dumb enough to buy this story, however I am not. Try again bozo.

  99. 99

    MJ's Vitiligo claim will always be kindof sketchy. Some people say he started having the skin surgeries after an acid burn and some say he had a disease. But what about the nose, straightened hair, cosmetic tattoos, and his kids? I respect him as an artist and performer, but I think we all know why he did those things.

  100. 100


    He was kinda cute but now he looks like Juan Gabriel!!!!
