King of pop Michael Jackson has returned to the United States after living in Bahrain, France and Ireland. The singer surfaced with his spokeswoman today (Jan. 26) to confirm to the Associated Press that he is back after he withdrew himself from the U.S following his acquittal in a child molestation trial that ended in June 2005.
"I can confirm that he is in the United States," spokeswoman Raymone K. Bain said. "We don't give out information regarding our client's whereabouts because of safety, and this is just an ongoing policy."
They also said he is on the comeback trail and planning a pair of "fan appreciation events" in Japan in March, one of which will charge $3,300 for the opportunity to meet the Gloved One.
Jackson said he has chosen to come back to Japan because of the strong support he enjoys there. "My friends and fans in Japan have been so supportive of me and my family for many, many years," he said. "My fans in Japan helped me achieve historic milestones in the music industry."
Broderick Morris, the promoter working the Japan side of Jackson's trip, said they have sold 220 of 300 tickets to a "platinum VIP party" on March 8. Guests will have dinner, get autographed photos and be able to "meet and greet" Jackson for 30 seconds to one minute, he said.
