Jackson Breaks His Silence

Subscribe to Michael Jackson alerts

Superstar Michael Jackson has broken his silence over his child molestation court battle, describing the trial as "the hardest thing I've ever done in my life".

The THRILLER hitmaker spoke to news agency Associated Press (AP) in a phone call from Bahrain, where he has been staying with his friend PRINCE ABDULLA, the son of the King in Bahrain.

Jackson said he and his three children PRINCE MICHAEL I, PARIS MICHAEL and PRINCE MICHAEL II were "resting and recovering" following the two years of turmoil.

The star admitted he had suffered back problems during his high-profile trial in Santa Maria, California, but was now "feeling good".

The pop legend is now working hard on FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART, a charity single to raise money for the victims of last month's (29AUG05) Hurricane Katrina.

He enthused, "I'm constantly working on it."

Joining Jackson on the phone to AP was his spokeswoman Raymone K Bain, who was reported to have been fired by the Jackson family a day before the star was acquitted of all charges in June (05).

Bain admitted Jackson was in talks with a host of big names to sing on the charity single, but could not confirm a line-up. Jay-Z, James Brown, Mariah Carey, Snoop Dogg and Lauryn Hill are all rumoured to be taking part.
