Michael Jackson’s son spent two weeks at an ultra-exclusive Swiss clinic after he wrecked his motorcycle on Nov. 2 in Los Angeles. RadarOnline.com can reveal that sources claim the 20-year-old took advantage of his time at the facility to be treated for vitiligo, the same skin condition that afflicted his late father!

While in Switzerland, “Prince was able to completely rest, which was good for his health,” an insider revealed. “He can’t do that in Los Angeles because he’s always being followed and photographed. In Switzerland, he was able to get the treatment he needs in privacy.”

Prince “sustained a knee injury and multiple lacerations” when his motorcycle collided with another vehicle, according to his rep. He was rushed to a local hospital but was back home the same day, and later flew to Switzerland, said the source.

After Prince returned to L.A. on Nov. 26, a Hollywood insider speculated more than an injured knee prompted his stay at the Swiss facility. “It doesn’t make any sense,” said the insider. “What? There are no orthopedists in Los Angeles, never mind America?”

In 2009, Prince’s aunt La Toya revealed he was plagued by the same skin disease that burdened Michael. “Vitiligo is on my father’s side and Prince has it, too — on his arms and chest,” she said.

Vitiligo, which is hereditary, causes patches of skin to lose pigment, creating an uneven, blotchy appearance. In August 2014, Prince was photographed leaving a martial arts class, and white patches could be seen on his arms. “The blotches on his skin were clearly visible, but he seems to be coping with it,” a source noted.

Although it’s unclear whether Prince underwent treatment for vitiligo, reports that he patronized a Swiss clinic is a troubling omen for Michael’s son. “Coping with that skin condition caused Michael to tinker with his appearance — until he looked downright odd!” said the source.

Michael confessed he injected hydroxychloroquine directly into his scalp to whiten his skin, and used pancake makeup to camouflage the blotches.

Swiss clinics are renowned for offering bizarre alternative treatments, such as shock therapy, ice chambers and acid skin peels. “The family knows a couple of therapeutic and holistic doctors in Switzerland,” noted a family source. “Michael used one for back pain and other woes. Now Prince appears to be using the same medical Rolodex as his father!”
