Pop superstar Michael Jackson has fallen in love with Bahrain after spending the summer in the Middle Eastern nation and now plans to make it his permanent home.
The King of Pop flew to Bahrain shortly after being acquitted of child molestation in a Santa Maria, California court and spent time there as a guest of the crown prince Sheik Salman Ibn Hamed Khalifa.
And, after months of speculation suggesting Jackson is planning to sell his Neverland home in California, and make Bahrain his official headquarters, attorney Thomas Mesereau confirms his client is making a life-changing move.
He says, “He’s moving on in life. He’s living permanently in Bahrain. He has friends there who have been very loyal and helpful to him in a difficult period of his life.” Mesereau, who represented Jackson in his child molestation trial, insists the Middle East has been a tonic for the King of Pop. He adds, “He looks really well.”
I wonder if it’s just because he loved the country or because he’s sure he won’t be sued time and again over there.
Anyway, I also wonder it we will detect any Arab influence in his future music. That would be really cool.
