The “King of Pop” Michael Jackson is facing another lawsuit, and this time from Bahrain for failing to record a music album as per an agreement.

Singer Michael Jackson has more lawsuits than new albums this decade it seems. He is facing another lawsuit of £5 million ($7.43 million) in damages for breaking a record contract with the Sheik Abdulla Bin Hamad Bin Isa Al-Khalifa, King of Bahrain’s son.
The King’s son became a close friend of Michael Jackson during his exile in the country. Jackson stayed in Bahrain for six months to get away from his Neverland Ranch troubles. Jackson recently had to give up the Neverland Ranch to a private buyer.
The Sheik claims he gave loans to Jackson to solve his financial problems. In 2006, Jackson agreed to pay back the loans by releasing a new album from the music label owned by the Sheik.
But Jackson disputes those claims and said those payments from the Sheik were gifts and the music project between the two was not finalized.
