Lupus doesn’t distinguish between rich and poor, or race and age – and in one famous case, species. Anyone can get lupus. And several lupus sufferers have made a name for themselves in the world of entertainment, sports and politics.
The most famous lupus sufferer is probably Michael Jackson, the "King of Pop" and a constant tabloid subject. He was diagnosed with the disease in 1984, shortly after his hit album "Thriller" was tearing up the charts.
