Michael Jackson
Michael Jackson, the former King of Pop, has dumped the nanny and banned the kids from the recording studio so he can work on his first studio album in many years.

"Michael is producing the album himself and has banned his kids from the recording studio. He realises this is very important and doesn't want any distractions," a source told the New York Post.

"He's not going to be involved in any personal relationships with women until he gets
this record done," the source added. "He's dumped the nanny - she's not around any more."

Jackson has seen more than his share of controversy over the past few years, all the while not recording any new albums. As scandalous as many of his actions have been, he still retains the title of 'King of Pop' in most parts of the world.

No confirmation of when the new album will be finished or released have been revealed.
