Michael Jackson’s former bodyguard reveals the ‘REAL reason’ behind the pop icon’s nose surgery – detailing how horrific accident prompted him to go under the knife for the first time

 

Michael Jackson‘s former bodyguard has revealed the ‘real reason’ behind the late pop icon’s nose surgery.

Matt Fiddes, who worked with the star for more than a decade, appeared on a recent episode of The Steven Sulley Study podcast to dish the details on why the singer really went under the knife for the first time – sparking a years-long transformation that was the subject of fierce scrutiny.

The TV personality explained that Jackson had always been teased about the size of his nose, but underwent his first rhinoplasty procedure in 1979.

However, Fiddes insisted that it wasn’t this teasing that actually prompted him to undergo a rhinoplasty routine – but rather a horrific injury he suffered at the age of 21, as a result of his ‘unbelievable’ training routine.

In a snippet of the interview shared to TikTok, which has so far been viewed more than 119,000 times, Matt sat down with host Steven Sulley to open up about his former employer’s changing appearance.

‘He used to get teased by his family a lot over the size of his nose – being called big nose and all of this stuff,’ Fiddes said.

‘He used to say his dad used to be the main one – “you didn’t get that from me, you got that from your mom, you didn’t get that from my side of the family” – it hurt him a lot.’

But, the teasing alone was not enough to force Jackson to make a change, he said.

Matt continued: ‘Michael used to dance about three hours a day on average. At one stage he was doing 50 spins in a row – it was unbelievable.

‘He fell over and broke his nose and he saw it as the perfect opportunity while he was under anesthetic to just get a smaller nose.’

Referring to the rumors that Jackson had undergone multiple plastic surgery procedures throughout his life, Fiddes noted that he never spoke to the signer about that ‘in detail’, but conceded that it was clear to everyone that he’d had work done.

‘I don’t know how many operations he had. It’s not a discussion I went into detail with him on but clearly he’s had operations on his nose,’ he said.

He concluded: ‘Back then plastic surgery or Botox, we couldn’t talk about it.

‘It just wasn’t a thing so he had to maintain this image because he had record companies behind him who paid his billions.’

Still, Fiddes suggested that Jackson was aware of the fact that his changing face and public antics would garner him plenty of attention – even without him ever addressing them.

‘But in the end he would play on that. A lot of times how the media would have seen him is not how I would have seen him,’ he shared.

‘He would make himself look ridiculous to wind the media up.’

Jackson became one of the most infamous examples of the perils of cosmetic surgery – having spent 30 years trying to achieve his idea of perfection.

Some friends previously said he was modelling himself on Diana Ross, others that he just wanted to obliterate all resemblance to his hated father.

In the end, after up to 100 procedures, he was left desperately trying to repair the damage done by reckless and botched operations and injections.
