The superstar has lived a mythical existence since leaving the US, spending time in Bahrain, Japan, England and Ireland.

Jackson returned to the US to attend James Brown's funeral earlier this month, and his spokesman, Raymone K Bain, has confirmed the star is sticking around and is planning a comeback.

The singer also revealed plans to begin his music comeback at two fan appreciation events in Tokyo, Japan.

Revealing his future plans, Jackson said: "My friends and fans in Japan have been so supportive of me and my family for many, many years. My fans in Japan helped me achieve historic milestones in the music industry." - Wenn
