Darcel de Vlugt Vitiligo Skin Condition Turned Her From Black to White. We must admit that when we first heard reports that Michael Jackson’s skin color turned white because of some skin condition, we went, “Yeah, right. What a convenient excuse for someone who must have spent millions of money on some skin whitening cream.” We were skeptical. Why? Mainly because a condition that causes one’s skin to turn from black to white is kinda just too weird to be true.
Anyhoo, it turns out that there is really such a skin problem. It is called vitiligo. The British tabloid Daily Mail has an article about a girl — Darcel de Vlugt — who, like Michael Jackson, turned from black to white. Check out the excerpt below but, first, here’s Darcel as a little girl.
