Jacko Muzzles Up and Settles

11/24/2008 7:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

A Bahraini sheik won't get the CD he wanted but it looks like he'll be getting another CD of sorts -- the type containing money.

Michael Jackson has settled a lawsuit filed by the son of the King of Bahrain, claiming he invested $7 million in a CD that Michael never delivered.

Jacko was supposed to board a plane yesterday for London, where he was expected to testify in the case. But it suddenly settled. The terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

Funny how that always happens.

Ok people, just like before, Michael had nothing to do with the settlement. It was out of his hands. How about you print the real story TMZ instead of making up all these lies about a great, honest, loving person?

Michael Jackson is the king of pop. I can't wait to have his new album. I don't care what problems he had with the law. He is number ONE.

Almost all people are turning to payday loans, not only the poor and average living people, even the rich and famous. Michael Jackson has just announced an auction in April of various personal items over five days at an auction house in Beverly Hills. Among the lots going on the block are the gates to his famous Never Land Ranch, and the white glove that he famously wore in the "Billy Jean" video. A spokesperson says that it isn't a forced sale, and Jackson is just cleaning house. Michael Jackson has had some high profile troubles, both legal and financial. The Never Land Ranch nearly slipped into foreclosure, and he recently settled a lawsuit out of court. The lawsuit was brought by a member of the Bahraini royal family, who claimed that Jackson owed him money for not delivering a book and album that he had allegedly agreed to deliver for living expenses and others that he had incurred whilst staying in Bahrain at the invitation of the royal family. Sources close to the King of Pop claim that he has lived beyond his means for years. However, the rest of us may not need to sell our things at auction if we have a sudden expense knock our budget out of proportion – we have other options, such as payday loans.
