A son of the king of Bahrain is suing U.S. pop star Michael Jackson for backtracking on an agreement to record a new album and write an autobiography as repayment for the millions of dollars in loans he received from the prince, press reported Monday.

“Sheikh Abdullah began to support Mr. Jackson financially after 2005 when it became clear that Mr. Jackson was in very serious financial difficulties, much to Sheikh Abdullah’s surprise,” Khalifa’s lawyer, Bankim Thanki, told London’s High Court.

 

“ Sheikh Abdullah began to support Mr. Jackson financially after 2005 when it became clear that Mr. Jackson was in very serious financial difficulties, much to Sheikh Abdullah’s surprise. “ Khalifa’s lawyer, Bankim Thanki, told London’s High Court.

The two men had a “close personal relationship,” and even discussed the possibility of Jackson moving to Bahrain after his 2005 child sexual molestation trial, Thanki said. 

The court heard that the sheikh forked out $35,000 to pay utility bills at Jackson’s Neverland Ranch and also gave him one million dollars in April 2005 after Jackson asked for the money through an assistant. 

“Sheikh Abdulla made many more payments on his behalf or to others,” including Jackson’s $2.2 million legal bill for his criminal trial, he said. 

The early financial support coincided with Jackson’s 2005 trial on child molestation charges. Despite his acquittal, the case left the 50-year-old performer’s reputation and financial status in tatters.

Jackson spent time in Bahrain as a guest of the royal family following the trial, and in April 2006 a statement was released on behalf of Bahrain music label Two Seas Records announcing he would record a new album for release in 2007. 

The sheikh planned to revive Jackson’s musical career, releasing records through their own label — including a song recorded the day after his trial ended, which the sheikh wanted released to help victims of the 2004 tsunami. 

The sheikh is suing the pop legend for allegedly reneging on a $7 million “pay-back” agreement designed to repay money he advanced to Jackson during his financial troubles. 

He said he and Jackson entered into a “combined rights agreement” under which the star was committed to a recording contract, an autobiography and a musical stage play. 

But Jackson contests that there was no valid agreement and that the sheikh’s case was based on “mistake, misrepresentation and undue influence.” 

In his pleaded defense, Jackson said the payments he received were “gifts” and that no project was ever finalized. 

At the start of a court hearing set for up to 12 days, the judge heard that an application would be made for Jackson to give evidence via video link from Los Angeles, California.

  1. $7 Million for an unlimited supply of little boys for Michael – Which ever way the money went, if Jackson had anything to do with it it probably involved some sort of his well known fun and games with children.

  2. * Bahrain music label Two Seas Records

    Music? In islam? Death to CD store owners trying to flog this unislamic stuff?

  3. Protection
    For gangs, clubs,
    And nations
    Causing grief in
    Human relations
    It’s a turf war
    On a global scale
    I’d rather hear both sides
    Of the tale
    See, it’s not about races
    Just places
    Faces
    Where your blood
    Comes from
    Is where your space is
    I’ve seen the bright
    Get duller
    I’m not going to spend
    My life being a color

    Don’t tell me you agree
    With me
    When I saw you
    Kicking dirt in my eye

    But, if
    You’re thinkin’
    About my baby
    It don’t matter if you’re
    Shia or Sunni

  4. Hey! if Wacko was a paedophile who fancied nine year old girls. 1 billion boneheads would be headbangin the ground and naming their first born sons after him. He Rocks in the tree tops all the day long, then the the green bird flies to paradise with some moronic and sad terrorist in it’s stomach. HAHA!

  5. serves the homo prince right I wish thatthe prince looses all his fu*kin money and the homo child rapist wako jako’s balls falls off

  6. I would like to ask the Prince why with kind of money he does not fund somekind of business. I am sure he would make a good front man for any business.

    I find it strange that someone can give this kind of money to someone who already owes money all over when I can’t get a 5,000 loan to start a business.

    In fairness to the Prince I can see he probaly does not know that there is people in the world who needs as little as £5000 and strange thing is thats the people who would pay back.
    I would love to meet the Prince and show him the real world I am shour he would find it very interesting.
