Sheik sues Wacko Jacko

Fallen pop superstar Michael Jackson is facing more financial woes.

Fallen pop superstar Michael Jackson is facing more financial woes.

He is reportedly facing a lawsuit from a super-rich Arab sheik for backing out of, among other things, a record deal.

The Bad hitmaker allegedly signed an exclusive deal with Prince Abdulla Al-Khalif to pen an autobiography, release two albums and help produce a musical of his life.

Al-Khalif alleges he gave the singer a $120,000 (about R1,3 million) and a Rolls-Royce and paid for his Neverland Ranch in 2005 following his acquittal on child-molesting charges, according to Britain's The Sun newspaper.

The case is set to be heard at London's high court. - Wenn
