To be honest, it's a possibility. There's factors that point to both sides of this story. He has many times before been "gravely ill" because he wasn't up to performing so maybe he's trying to make up excuses to get out of it because he's a frail man with hardly the energy to be dancing and singing on stage. There were rumors swirling that the man supposedly Michael Jackson that announced that he was going on tour again, the "This Is It" tour, was a man pretending to be MJ and has been his "double" for many years when Michael was not up to facing the public. He's the master of disguises and he could easily go into hiding. However, you can't always believe what you hear, only from credible sources. But seeing as how his family has come out and said that he really is dead and that the autopsy will be coming out today definitely indicates that he's no longer with us. Despite his personal matters, he was an immensely talented man and inspired many. R.I.P. Michael Jackson.
