Michael Jackson Sued By Prince of Bahrain For Freeloading, Betrayal

jacksonAn Arab prince, the son of the King of Bahrain, is suing the King of Pop for $7 million in a London court. He says Michael Jackson made an agreement for a recording deal and Jacko was going to revive his career by doing songs written by the prince. The prince paid an advance - but Jackson is claiming the money was a gift.

Sheikh Abdulla Bin Hamad Bin Isa Al-Khalifa says he feels betrayed. He claims he built Jackson a recording studio at Neverland, and paid an advance for two albums, a stage show and an autobiography.

According to the BBC this was the sheikh who invited Jackson and his kids and entourage to Bahrain so the superstar could relax after being cleared of child abuse charges a few years ago, but that the singer took advantage of the hospitality and stayed six months.

Plus, the sheikh claims that Jackson agreed to record a charity song for the victims of Hurricane Katrina.

But Jacko says it's all a misunderstanding - the loaned money, the supposed contract, the albums, the book, the recording studio, the stage show, and hanging out in Bahrain for six months.

He says the sheikh's case is based on "mistake, misrepresentation and undue influence" and that no projects were finalized - and that any payments were "gifts".

The suit, which comes a week after Jackson officially lost his Neverland ranch, will be heard on Monday in London - if Jackson shows up for it.
