Speculation grows about the singer’s passing

Michael Jackson‘s death could have been caused by grapefruit juice, according to internet speculation.

The singer – who was said to be taking the painkiller pethidine – was drinking the fruit smoothie on the advice of a nutritionist, reports Metro.

But grapefruit contains a substance which apparently stops the liver breaking down pethidine into safe by-products.

Michael, 50, was pronounced dead at UCLA hospital on Thursday.
