There have been several reports that Michael Jackson has converted to Islam. The Sun reports that he  wore traditional Islamic dress as he pledged his allegiance to the Koran at a friend’s home in Los Angeles.

Reports also say that Michael Jackson has changed his name to Mikaeel and that singer Kat Stevens, who has been a Muslim for many years and changed his name to Yusef Islam also attended the ceremony.

Jackson is currently involved with a lawsuit from a former friend, Sheikh Abdulla bin Hamad Al Khalifa, who is suing him for not following up on a deal to give him an album and a musical.
