Michael Jackson has become a Muslim.
The singer changed his name to Mikaeel in a ceremony at a friend's Los Angeles home just days before he is due in court.
The cash-strapped star - who was raised as a Jehovah's Witness - was convinced to turn to Islam by producer Phillip Bubal and songwriter David Wharnsby.
A source told Britain's The Sun newspaper: "They began talking to him about their beliefs and how they thought they had become better people after they converted.
"Michael soon began warming to the idea."
Singer Yousef Islam - formerly known as Cat Stevens before he also converted to the religion - attended the star's declaration of belief, known as the shahada.
