Michael is too feeble to travel and can’t make it to the trial in Europe:
LONDON (AP) — Michael Jackson’s attorney said Tuesday that the pop star might be too sick to travel to London to testify in a suit claiming he owes an Arab sheikh $7 million. Jackon is seeking to give his testimony by video link from the United States. “It would be unwise for him to travel, given what’s he’s got now,” lawyer Robert Englehart said, declining to elaborate “for the obvious reasons.” Al Khalifa’s lawyer, Bankim Thanki, said the medical evidence presented by Jackson’s legal team was “very unsatisfactory” and Jackson’s illness could be treated with a bandage “if the diagnosis is positive.” “It’s not the first time a sick note has been presented by Mr. Jackson,” Thanki said, also without elaborating. The judge, Nigel Sweeny, said he would decide the matter Thursday to allow time for medical experts on both legal teams to talk. Sheikh Abdulla bin Hamad Al Khalifa, the second son of the king of Bahrain, claims that Jackson reneged on a contract for an album, a candid autobiography and a stage play, after accepting millions from the sheikh. Al Khalifa was in court Tuesday for the second day of arguments and testimony. The case is being tried in London by mutual agreement, Al Khalifa’s representatives have said. It is due to wrap up by the end of the month.
Did someone forget to mention to MJ that he was going to be flying in a plane and not hang-gliding to London? Of course MJ is weak, hell, he’s had the body of a 12 year old girl for the past 20 years, but that’s nothing a turkey sandwich and a glass of milk can’t fix. SMH
