Michael Jackson in Ladies Room
Contactmusic.com Pop superstar MICHAEL JACKSON reportedly avoided police interrogation in Dubai on Saturday (12NOV05), after accidentally using the ladies bathroom at a shopping mall.
The singer, who spends most of his time in nearby Bahrain, was caught adjusting his make-up in the female washroom of the Ibn Battuta Mall in the Arab Emirate, by a 37-year-old Tunisian teacher known as LATIFA M.
According to Arab newspaper Khaleej Times' report of the event, Jackson was wearing a T-shirt and trousers and a traditional Arab women's headscarf.
When Latifa M spotted Jackson, she began taking pictures of him on her mobile phone. He then reportedly chased after her and a mall security guard attempted to take her phone. She refused to hand it over without compensation and called police.
According to Khaleej Times, COLONEL ABDUL JALIL AL MEHDI, deputy director of the Preventive Security Department of Dubai Police, attempted to resolve the situation with Latifa M and two of Jackson's female companions - while the singer fled in a limousine.
Colonel Mehdi informed Latifa she is not entitled to compensation under local law and convinced her to hand over her phone.
Reported on Ignaczy’s BlogDubai Police Col. Abdul Jalil Mehdi said he believed the pop star made an "innocent mistake" in using the ladies' loo, the Times said Mehdi did not comment on Jackson's choice of head-wear - the traditional Emerati women's scarf known as "Sheila."
What I understand from other sources Michael Jackson was dressed like a woman and I doubt it was a mistake, he went into the wrong bathroom. I wonder what men in Bahrain would think seeing him in front of mirror touching up his rouge! It seems the country of Bahrain has laws against extradition, the way I understand it, wasn’t that convenient for him to flee there and kiss up to the Prince? He is a guest of Sheik Abdullah bin Hamad Al Khalifa, the son of Bahrain's king. Makes you wonder what may happen to him there if one of the crazy Islamic Radicals gets a hold of him.
