OK this is a bit of a silly question but here we go anyway.
Does anyone know which celebrities have Lupus?
I know Elaine Paige the West End singer has DEF got SLE (read an article she did in The Times)
I've heard somewhere that Michael Jackson has Lupus?! Does anyone know if this is true???
& Also SEAL the singer...heard somewhere that the scarring on his face is down to Discoid Lupus. Anyone know if that's the case??
Thanks

I read somewhere that Seal has discoid lupus, which is why he is bald and why he has scarring on his face...Michael Jackson has lupus too from what I hear, but he also has something beginning with a 'V' (Vigarillo??)...

I read that Elaine Paige has it, Sharon Stone apparently lost a sister to it?

dont know how accurate it is...but its funny how it affects these people in the public eye, yet noone seems to know what it is when you tell them what you have??
