Michael Jackson Buys Property in Bahrain

King of Pop Michael Jackson has purchased a palatial property in Bahrain, sources told The New York Post yesterday, making the affluent little Kingdom of Bahrain a potential new home for the wandering superstar. Jackson, 46, recently forked over an undisclosed amount of money to buy 14 acres next to a palace of his good pal Sheikh Abdullah bin Hamad al Khalifa, according to royal insiders.

The Gloved One (Jackson) has enjoyed his month-long Middle East vacation, in part because he can don local garb — often a flowing, white djellaba, com plete with headdress — and walk the streets virtually undetected, according to sources. Two of Jackson's lawyers in California said they had not heard of any plans for the singer to buy land in the small Persian Gulf nation.

Word of the Bahrain purchase is the latest chapter of Jackson's nomadic saga. A German newspaper, quoting Jackson's dad, reported last week that the King of Pop was on the verge of moving to Berlin. The Gloved One has been on an extended getaway, still recovering from a grueling four-month trial that ended with Santa Barbara County jurors clearing him of child-molestation charges.
