Publishers in New York are involved in a bidding war for the rights to a novel secretly written by pop legend Michael Jackson.
It is not known when the King of Pop wrote the book, which is a fictional account of a rock star's struggles with money and fame at the height of his success.
"The untitled book mirrors Jackson's own rise to superstardom and self-imposed seclusion," said a source.
Insiders claim the late star conceptualised the plot and characters and then worked with a collaborator on the story and accompanying illustrations.
