I feel its an amusing turn of events.
Sheikh Abdulla bin Hamad Al Khalifa Vs Michael Jackson would be an interesting case for the London High Court to handle.
The Sheikh says he gave MJ a full 7 million dollar amount as an advance - for an album and an autobiography that MJ never produced.
And MJ says that he thought it was a gift!! ( Ofcourse MJ used a part of the 'gift' amount to pay of his Neverland Ranch's Bills).
Now its the turn of lawyers on both sides to twist the facts (or fiction) to their advantage.
Knowing how one feels about the slick US lawyers, who knows what they will come out with to defend the great MJ?
And Knowing...sorry, not knowing... how one feels if they lose 7 Million dollars, who knows what our Shiekh's lawyers would do?
Whatever the case may be, or however the case might turn out to be, I know that, ultimately, it will be the lawyers who will be laughing all the way to the bank :)
I'm sure, our Shiekh, the now once-bitten amateur song-writer, will make MJ sing a different tune soon.
