SOURCES close to pop star Michael Jackson yesterday denied a report in the New York Post that he had invested $1.5 million (BD567,000) on two villas on the Amwaj Island development.
The source said the newspaper had contacted them to confirm the reports and that he had denied it to them but they went ahead and published it anyway.
"He hasn't purchased any property and he hasn't even been back in Bahrain since he went to London to record his new song," he said.
"He's been in Dubai for the past month, but still considers Bahrain to be his home. He will be back here soon."
Mr Jackson first came to Bahrain on June 29 as a guest of Southern Governor Shaikh Abdulla bin Hamad Al Khalifa.
He is expected to release a song in support of victims of natural disaster which will feature an all-star cast.
