Pop star Michael Jackson has converted to Islam and changed his name to Mikaeel, it has been claimed on 25th Nov. 2008

The 50-year-old singer, who has previously been photographed wearing a traditional Arab women’s veil, reportedly became a Muslim in a ceremony at a friend’s house in Los Angeles, London’s Daily Mail reports.

The singer, who was raised as a Jehovah’s Witness, is said to have sat on the floor and worn a small hat while an imam officiated at the home of Steve Porcaro, who composed music on his Thriller album.

He is said to have been encouraged by Canadian songwriter David Wharnsby and Phillip Bubal, a producer, who both approached him after he appeared ‘a bit down’.
