London: Michael Jackson lost so much weight during gigs that he was forced to change into smaller outfits half-way through his performances.

The late star’s designer Michael Bush has revealed in a book, that the King of Pop had once lost five pounds of water during his on-stage gig, a leading daily has reported.

“Michael was a 28-inch waist, but by the midpoint of the show his waist dropped to 27-and-a-quarter. He had lost five pounds of water,” he said.
