Michael Jackson's hopes of a pop comeback look little more than a pipedream after the frail superstar was spotted wheelchair bound. The fallen king of pop was a shadow of his former self as he made a masked trip to a toy store with his three children. Not yet 50, the singer resembled his close friend Elizabeth Taylor, 76, who is also ailing in a wheelchair. The shocking pictures comes as reports link him to a string of pop comebacks ranging from a duet with the New Kids On The Block and a mega bucks residency in Las Vegas. Jacko was accompanied by his three children, Prince Michael, 11, Paris, 10, and six-year-old Prince Michael II, to the Barnes & Noble toy store in Vegas. This time, however, it was Jackson who had his face hidden in a hat, sunglasses and surgeon's mask while his children unusually showed off their faces.
Jackson used a minder to ferry him into the store and was accompanied by an additional entourage of eight but wheeled himself around inside. Medics say Jackson is suffering from back injuries following a career of extreme dance moves. Others say his metal set of wheels are used as a prop.
