Michael Jackson’s mother says she believes her famous son was addicted to plastic surgery.

Katherine Jackson says she even once asked her son’s surgeon to pretend that he’d operated on the pop singer’s nose if he ever asked for another surgery.

Jackson said on Monday’s episode of “The Oprah Winfrey Show” that her son thought he was ugly when he was an adolescent and later “one day made up his mind to get his nose done.”

Michael Jackson died in June 2009 of an overdose of a powerful anesthetic.

She says she talked to the surgeon because Michael Jackson’s nose kept getting smaller from repeated operations and looked “like a toothpick at one time.”
