Michael Jackson is reportedly set to make a comeback with the help of 50 Cent.
The former Jackson 5 star is said to have approached 50’s DJ Whoo Kid at the Bahrain Formula 1 Grand Prix, in the VIP room at Sakhir Tower.
It was there that Jackson spoke to DJ Whoo Kid about a possible collaboration with the Queens’ rapper. “Michael was talking to 50’s DJ Whoo Kid who spoke to 50 there and then about it,” reveals an unnamed source.
“The track would catapult Michael back into the limelight, which he is desperate for, and 50 has always been a fan.”
Interscope Records were unavailable for comment at press time.
Michael Jackson has also been busy working on a charity single for the victims of Hurricane Katrina, which is near completion, nearly seven months after the disaster.
I Have A Dream features guest spots from Snoop Dogg, R. Kelly, Ciara, the O’Jays and others.
Michael’s private life has also been in and out of the limelight this past year, after being acquitted of child molestation charges.
Jackson has since spent a considerable amount of time in the Middle Eastern country of Bahrain, where he is thought to be looking for a house for the family. According to his father, he is unlikely to return to the United States to live.
Meanwhile, back in the US, earlier this month his brother Jermaine openly admitted to doubting Michael’s innocence after the pop star was arrested in 2003.
”Does he really know what he does with these kids?” read the leaked document from the transcripts Jermaine is trying to get published. ”I don’t want to tell you my brother’s innocent. I am not certain he is. He has a thing for young children.”
The transcripts are from a book entitled, Legacy: Surviving the Best and the Worst, which apparently doesn’t favour Michael well. Jermaine Jackson also reveals how he discovered Michael holding the children of younger brother Tito, in a ‘disturbing’ manner, which left his family ‘shaken’.
”I remember Michael sitting on the bed with Tito’s boys – Taj, T.J. and Terrell [formerly 3T], crying and holding them. He held them in an almost uncomfortable manner that I will discuss openly and honestly [in the book]. The entire house was shaken.”
