Michael Jackson converts to Islam
Noted pop singer Michael Jackson has converted to Islam and changed his name to Mikaeel. The 50-year-old star pledged his allegiance to the Koran in a ceremony at a friend’s mansion in Los Angeles.
Motivated by his producer and songwriter friends David Wharnsby and Phillip Bubal, an Imam was summoned to officiate Michael Jackson’s conversion.
Interestingly, the pop star’s conversion into Islam comes just days before he is due to appear at London’s High Court where he is being sued by an Arab Sheik for $50 million for breach of contract.
