Michael Johns AutopsyAmerican Idol” singer Michael Johns died from an enlarged heart, but a “fatty liver” contributed to his death … this according to the Coroner's report.

The 35-year-old singer died suddenly Aug. 1 after his leg became swollen and bruised … reportedly from a sprained ankle. Family sources claimed the injury had triggered a blood clot, but his best friend claimed the singer drank himself to death.

The Orange County Coroner's report concludes Johns died of natural causes — the result of a disease called dilated cardiomyopathy, a condition that inhibits the flow of blood to the body. The disease caused his heart to enlarge.

As for the “fatty liver” … it can be caused by excessive alcohol intake, but there are other causes as well. Law enforcement told us … Johns often drank to excess and did so hours before he died.
